Pond Fishing 6/21/14

Went out to one of my favorite spots to fish today at Kurt and Kathy’s pond outside Ridgeway. Caught around 40 nice bluegill and 8 bass for the day. Two of the bass where nice ones, weighing around 4 pounds each. Had my little fishing buddy Kanyon with me as well and he landed his first bass.

Squirrel release at Liberty 6/13/14

Its that time of the year again when I start to get animals from the inmates at MCI to release back into the wild. Today I released 8 grey squirrels back into the wild over at the Liberty Conservation Club. I didn’t get any good pictures of the release due to the fact that once I opened the cage they darted out into the thickets and woods.

Went out to Sawyers Creek one last time before we head back to Ohio. It was a beautiful day out on the boat and the fish was biting good. Jim and Nori landed 2 nice bluegill and Jim got another bowfin. Couldn’t ask for a better day.
