Fished solo with JoJo today for a few hours. How does one fish solo with someone else? Joe was in his boat and I was in mine. I don't believe there are any gamefish of any kind in the river right now, at least not near our boats. I drop shot mostly and Joe spent much of his trip casting Raps shallow. There was a lunker of a largemouth happily swimming and taunting me at my dock when I returned. Even the largemouth laugh at me.
How the Covid Stole Opening Day...
And the Scott, with his Scott-feet red-hot in socks of gray,
Stood puzzling and puzzling, what happened to opening day?
'It came without humps! It came without Frenchman's!
It came without Sea World, the Shipyards or Black Creek!
And he puzzled three hours, till his puzzler was sore.
Then the Scott thought of something he hadn't before.
Maybe opening day, he thought, doesn't just start in the west!
Maybe opening day in other places is best!
And what happened then? Well, on the Niagara they say
That all of the muskies grew three sizes that day!
And then the true meaning of opening day came through,
And Scott found trolls of ten Scott's, plus two!
And now that the river didn't feel quite so tight,
He whizzed a great spread of lures so bright
and trolled in his Lund sleekly at night!
Opening Day is in our grasp
So long as we have Stringease to clasp.
Opening Day will always be
Just as long as we have we.
Welcome Opening Day while we stand
Heart to heart and hand in hand.
