Bright sunlight made working on the bait traps and fishing jugs on the tailgate of the pickup most pleasant.


The weather forecast for tonight however, didn’t sound too good.


The bait traps had came back from the lake last year in pretty rough condition.


Even after considerable straightening, they looked somewhat bent. Yet, we know that they will work just fine, when we need them.


Some of the jugs needed minor repairs and hooks replaced. Note the offset in the above hook’s shaft.

But, a couple of hours in the bright sunlight and we are all set for our next trip to the lake.

It won’t be long now ! We’ve got catching large catfish on our minds !

He, he, Pete, you gotter' figgured ! We have been talking to AL & Fran, making plans for the best jugfest yet ! Do you think that Aubrey may be able to make it ? That would be ever so cool. AL has traded for an all aluminum crappie boat that is very similar to ours.

Don't know if I wanna go out in Al's crappy boat unless he's got a lot of life preservers and a pull behind dingy!#*#!!
