Hey James...Linda is doing exceptionally well with the knee replacement. Yesterday was 6 weeks out and she has been told to ditch the cane, start walking upstairs and continue home therapy. She is walking and doing better than she has in about 10 years! Absolutely amazing!

How we doing James. I got hold of Jones Fish Farm about the Paddle Fish you really got my interest. They said they couldn't sell them to me cause I was in the Lake Erie Basin. I assured them I was nowhere near the lake and she said the law is the law so no Paddle Fish. I'll try some different avenues cause I really would like a couple. My pond in the 15 years has never over flowed and if it did the farmer would have fish fertilizer. Thought I would touch basses with you but I'm not giving up the fight. Seems like its my pond I should be able to put whatever I want in it providing it doesn't hurt anybody. James take care and enjoy your summer. Keep in touch.

Linda is doing better...she passed her kidney stone and we are now preparing for her knee replacement on May 23...so please keep us in your prayers! Thanks for asking!

James...water is 68 to 71 degrees...gills are spawning and life is good! How 'bout you?

James...weather is very cold here this week...30's at night and daytime highs of 40's and 50's. Hope to have a fishing report by the weekend...

Fishing has been very sporadic here as well...some days spectacular, some days nothin'. I would like to see consistant weather patterns that gradually warm up for the rest of the spring. I am actually having my best fishing on chilly, overcast days, after the warm spells.

How we doing James. Yea I just wanted to tell you my gill are starting to feed again. I just left the 7 pm feeding the dog and I she has to be part of it no you know. Didn't see lots of gill but it's been about 2 or 3 weeks since I have seen any and also a couple bonus perch came in eating the smaller pellets. You take car and GOOD FISHING....

Hey James...thanks for the encouraging words on Lindas operation.

Are you getting into the fish? It has been unseasonably cold here, but I did have a 44 fish trip the other day, with a pair of 10 inch gills being the largest. Went down to 32 degrees last night.
