a nice lunch

skipped the beach at sunrise this morning…did a nice Maryland style lunch..wow…Steamers or for those not from Brooklyn how about Soft Shell Clams  as an appetizer..followed by a Maryland Lump Crab Cake sammich.. I did say ‘sammich’..what a super lunch..wow..


sunny early morning .. rain later in the day–a double Rainbow

after getting blasted by some heavy thunderstorms last nite today’s early morning proved to be a nice sunrise..  a beautiful clear sunny morning at the beach and lake.. on the drive home from the beach I stopped at the lake and ‘wet a line’.. one of two LMB landed..getting a lil’ fatter–the fish that is..  ALL catch & release of course….then the rains came back in mid-afternoon while we were shopping in Myrtle Beach at the mall.. as we were getting ready to drive out of the back end of the parking lot.. there it was– a double Rainbow.. snapped a few off .. got this Panorama with the Note 4

Largemouth Bass–getting fatter–the fish that is

a sunrise and a gator

a kewler  43* morning at sunrise at the beach.. down to 40th Street.. just all around quiet with a few dog-walkers out and about.. stopped once again at the lake on the drive home…something I’ve never seen a Gator swimming in the Lake in January with 53* water temps..couldn’t believe it.. they are usually in the mud and hunkered down for the winter months.. wet a line once again.. nada with the wind change from the NNE

on over to the beach

at 60* before sunrise with lots of low clouds spoiling it..   a couple of pics then on over to the lake once again.. hooked up and caught 2 more itty bitty LMBass.. they are getting even smaller but I guess I shouldn’t complain..

cloudy.. and ‘wet a line’

a cloudy morning so a non-sunrise at the beach..49*.. stopped at the lake on the drive home from the beach to check out where the Eagles were–no shows..they always show up every year in January.. decided to ‘wet a line’.. caught 2 Largemouth Bass..anything to make the ‘rod bend’ is fine by me.. small but certainly not bad for mid-January.. Catch & Release as always

‘kewler’ but still a pretty early morning

in the high 40’s before sunrise at the beach.. stopped at the lake on the drive home to try my luck and wet a line for a few minutes.. actually had 2 hits on a Yami Worm–no hookups .. mid 60’s thru the afternoon as we spent the day on our regular Sunday shopping trip down to Myrtle.. a nice pleasant day

a foggy sunrise

just the right amount of fog to add to a nice sunrise with the temps finally getting a boost to ‘human levels’.. 50* on this early morning.. it sure beats the 19* of the other day..
