Hot, calm, no clouds, and no tide Saturday but we still managed to catch a few fish for the Hermitage fire department rodeo. We had 15 trout, two drum and two reds and and my camp partner wound up with 32 trout, two reds and a .24 ounce croaker that won 2nd place in that division. Embarassing but still a winner. They also won 2nd place for trout, red and gaftop cat so they did pretty good for the rodeo. Two nights in a row of rodeo festivities and running back around midnight back to myrtle grove by boat with a boat following me and my spotlight broken was fun but we made it with no problems with the hootchie mamas and kids all in one piece. Saturday was the hottest we’ve seen all summer but it was a good fun weekend with Sunday cooling off with the rain. Fish are starting to move to the front already. We caught some fish around the mines and mouth of Wilkerson bayou on beetles under a cork. Any more than 3 days of this I think it would have killed me so 4 days to recuperate and back at it.
