Hey, Smitty!  How are you feeling?  I hope that you are reasonably well.  No more stones, please.

We're having a terrific Spring here catching large trout.  Our annual overnight on the pontoon boat was terrific despite the cool weather, with a ribeye steak dinner and John Wayne movie before bed.  We hosted two families on Saturday and one of the kids caught a 7 lb 4 oz rainbow.  My wife giggles and laughs when a large fish takes line, on the boat just like on the ice.  That's the music of heaven.

Good fishing, reservoirs are full, snow pack is high, the weather is warming, the freezer is filling.  Life is very good.  I'll scrounge around for pics.  Most of them have been taken by guests on their own phones.
 Happiness is a wife who can outfish you.

Have you ever seen a perch without strips?  I caught this one last Winter.  Have a good Summer.

Smitty- due to weather conditions here in Ohio. Plus the extended forecast. You might want to dream up some ARK plans. Construction should be a snap with modern tools. Filling out passenger list could be problematic. For instance limiting rabbits to just two.

Smitty's Ark would be good marketing name. Giving Noah original builder a mention would be entirely optional. ;D
