    Finally got back out on the water. Cool and crisp this morning, and I could not have asked for a nicer day to not be at work. This young lady picked up a marabou spey and was released to the dinner table. Gotta do my part keeping brats out of the system :)

    I'm a fan of simple. Two fillets with a little seasoning baked in the oven. I love the taste of fish!
