Plenty of rain before and during the first two day's on vacation. I used the blue bucket shown in the photo to bail the boat out. I would say it was about a gallon and I bailed over 125 times.





Then the weather improved.














On the second from last day we were fishing across the lake and I noticed a beaver swimming from the other side. It passed us and then swam along the rocks right in front of us where it promptly swatted it's tail in the water and went below the water never to return. Five minutes later Jessica felt a tug that almost pulled her out of the boat. She yelled for me to help as the rod started slipping from her hands. Just then whatever was on the line flew out of the water and splashed back in and it was the biggest fish I have ever viewed in the 50 years I have been fishing there. Jessica thought she had caught the beaver. I had to grab her pole and then the line to try and get it in. Just as I felt we were close to doing that, with the fish still under the boat, the line snapped with us never getting another view of it. It was the most depressing feeling knowing that she had a chance to catch something as big as that.

So we go back to Vermont this week and Jessica does her best to catch one as big as the one that got away last month. Three throws off the beach with a lure and she did quite well. She had to run backwards and drag it out of the water.

On Thursday evening we were fishing in the boat out a little ways in front of my relatives property and I noticed the neighbor coming over the mountain and flying in. He passed right by us which was pretty cool.

A few minutes later after picking up a family member we watched this.

Very nice smallmouth bass. We are headed to the Adirondacks in early October for a couple night canoe trip in the St Regis. It will be my youngests first since his accident in 2015, he is chompin' at the bit :)
