    Went to Catawba river today in Old Fort hoping to spend a relaxing day catching some trout.I didn't catch any trout but did hook a few smallmouth.Nothing big,but they still put up a fight and are a blast to catch.Those river smallmouth are so healthy and beautifully colored.

    That sounds like it would be fun - gotta love a good fight.
    Huntman and I have been to the pond a couple times but aint nothin biting right now. Too hot I guess.

    too hot to fish
    I haven't been fishing much myself on account of the heat.I have been keeping busy with the things you don't want to be bothered with when they start biting again,lol.Found me some feeder motors dirt cheap and am going to let Gracie help me put together some feeders.I think it will be a fun project for us to do together.Its a shame the feed to put in them is gonna cost more than the feeders lol.Guess next year Gracie and I will have to plant us a corn crop.

    I almost forgot,I saw a mom and two fawns standing just off the interstate eating in the grass on the way home from fishing yesterday.I was thinking she sure is brave to have them right there in the open.
    GT size don't matter to me either,if it did I would have gave up fishing years ago.Sometimes its not even about the fishing,its just nice to be there.Usually it is a good stress reliever,but yesterday I think I took it with me.lol

    Fishing
    Very nice D...I know exactly what you mean. Enjoying creation is what I love to do whether I see a deer or turkey or catch a fish....Just being out there soothes my soul. Seeing animals is just a bonus for me....

    While I love getting outside and bagging whatever it is I am after, whether or not that happens I almost always keep some sort of memory of that thing that made me think, smile, or something. I don't know how many times I've laughed almost out loud while watching squirrels while waiting for a deer to come along! I have people close to me that disapprove of me 'killing' God's creatures and think I am mean doing so. But they don't understand how much We appreciate the animals and the chance outsmart them once in a while. Like the original post said, 'You can't fix stupid'!

    I noticed you said you like to squirrel hunt in your profile.I am going to squirrel hunt with my Grandaughter this season and was wondering if you knew whether or not white squirrel were legal game.It doesn't mention them in the regulations book.

    Hey Girl, You might want to read up on these 'White' tree-rats lol I read that they have a squirrel Festival in Brevard NC (You close to there?) Also they are several states where it's illegal to kill a white squirrel lol WTH????? I've never heard of such nonsense in all my days....Why can't these people just learn how to fish???

    I doubt I or Gracie would kill one anyhow.I was just wondering.They are really no different than any other squirrel,just white instead of grey.

    white squirrels
    I've never seen one and never heard of anyone I know seeing one. So legality wise I have no idea. Never seen a white deer either but I had an email some time back that showed a short documentary on a small herd somewhere in the upper midwest (Minnesota I think), ALOT of the deer are snow white. I'll have to see if I still have it. But if I did encounter either someday in the woods, that would be a real decision for me.
