This is a view of The Cottage as we are pulling into the dock to unload the groceries. You can see the dock is soaked because of all those boats racing down to the Big Chute.
It’s a easier to go to the Big Chute and load (groceries and luggage on) the boat.
All those schlumps in the background are waiting for the Big Chute Marine Railway to take them down to the lower part of the waterway.
The cottage is between a lock and the Big Chute. Boats come out of the lock and barrel down to the Big Chute making noise and big waves in front of the cottage.
I hooked this Pike with a yellow plastic worm on a lead-head jig. I break off the barbs on the hooks for easy release, but they still get stuck. I had to ask Liz to get me some pliers because in my excitement, I dropped my hook degorger in the water (Chris dove in an got it out later).
The second pike I caught just self released as I pulled it toward the dock.
Wednesday I got another Pike and a small Smallmouth bass, but there hasn’t been any action since then.
There are a lot of weeds in the water. I catch those all the time.
