PICTURES AND MY DAY IN THE CREEK

FIRST OF ALL TO ALL THE FOLKS THAT FOLLOW THIS BLOG I AM SORRY TO REPORT THAT GOOGLE ALTERED THEIR PHOTO ALBUM AND BECAUSE OF THAT WE LOST OUR LINK TO ALL THE MAZEPPA PICTURES.   BUT I AM ON VACATION NEXT WEEK AND HOPE TO FIGURE OUT THE CHANGES AND GET THE LINK BACK UP AND RUNNING.  JUST NEED SOME QUITE TIME AND COFFEE.

NOW AS FOR MY DAY IN THE CREEK.  PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE PERCY THAT I GOT 23 MORE TODAY.  NOT QUITE THE 30 PLUS I GOT THE PAST 2 TRIPS TO THE CREEK BUT STILL A GREAT DAY AND TONS OF WILDLIFE ESPECIALLY HERONS.   THEY ARE HAVING A FIELD DAY WITH THE LOW WATER LEVELS AS ARE THE KINGFISHERS.  THE SMALLMOUTH BASS ARE REALLY BITING NOW AND CAUGHT A NUMBER OF PICKERAL TODAY AND ALL WE NICE SIZED TOO.

30 MORE

KEEPING YOU UP TO DATE PERCY     : )
GOT OUT TO THE CREEK AGAIN YESTERDAY AND CAUGHT 30 MORE.  NOTHING BIG BUT WITH THE ULTRA LIGHT ROD THEY ARE A LOT OF FUN.  SAW ONE OF THE EAGLES AND SEVERAL SAND PIPERS.  HAVEN'T SEE THE GOLDEN TROUT IN THE PAST 2 OR 3 TRIPS TO THE CREEK SO GUESSING SOMETHING HAPPENED TO HIM.  EITHER CAUGHT BY HUMAN OR EAGLE OR MAYBE MOVED ON OR DIED.  AND FOR THE 3 TRIP IN A ROW......NO PICKERAL.

38 MORE

WELL PERCY I HAVE A FISHING STORY FOR YOU TODAY.   GOT OUT TO MAZEPPA YESTERDAY AND WAS IN THE CREEK BY 6 AM.  MY LUCKY HAT THAT LINDSAY SENT ME FROM THE PIONEER SEED MEETING IN HAWAII WAS MAGICAL AS I CAUGHT 38.
IT WAS EERIE QUIET AS THE STORMS WERE HOVERING ALL DAY AND IT SEEMED THE BIRDS AND OTHER ANIMALS SENSED IT.  DIDN'T SEE ANY EAGLES AGAIN AND GUESSING THEY MOVED ONTO BETTER FEEDING GROUNDS FOR THE SUMMER.  BUT THE KINGFISHERS ARE HAVING A FIELD DAY WITH THE LOW WATER LEVELS.  THE CREEK IS SO LOW THE THICK VEGETATION IS EVEN DYING OFF IN SPOTS.  ABOUT THE ONLY THING I DIDN'T CATCH WAS A PICKERAL AND EVEN SNAGGED SEVERAL ROCK BASS.

2 WEEK UPDATE

SORRY PERCY BUT I AM 2 WEEKS BEHIND ON MY FISHING UPDATES.   : )
2 WEEKS AGO I CAUGHT 20 AND JUST A WONDERFUL MORNING IN THE CREEK.  EVEN SAW THE BEAVER THAT MAKES MAZEPPA HOME BUT NO DEER  AND DIDN'T SEE ANY OF THE EAGLES.   I WAS BACK OUT THIS SUNDAY MORNING AND CAUGHT 15 MORE INCLUDING 2 REALLY NICE PICKERAL.   3 DEER BUT AGAIN NO EAGLES AND GUESSING THEY MOVED ON TO SOME OTHER HUNTING GROUNDS FOR THE SUMMER.  WHICH WILL MAKE THE HERONS HAPPY  AS THAT WILL MAKE LESS COMPETITION.   GOT 2 REALLY GREAT PICTURES OF HERONS AND WHEN I GET A CHANCE WILL ADD THEM TO THE ALBUM.   THE CREEK IS PLENTY LOW BUT NOT AS BAD AS THE  SUSQUEHANNA RIVER RIGHT NOW.

MEL FINCK

WE LOST A LONG  TIME RESIDENT OF MAZEPPA THIS WEEK WITH THE PASSING OF MELVIN FINCK.  PERSONALLY ONE OF THE TRULY GREAT NEIGHBORS I HAD DURING MY GROWING UP YEARS AND OF COURSE I WENT TO SCHOOL WITH KEITH.
HE SERVED IN THE AIR FORCE ( ARMY AIR CORPS ) DURING WW2 AND RETURNED TO GERMANY TO VISIT FRIENDS HE MADE THERE.  THEN OF COURSE HAD HIS CONSTRUCTON AND SIDING BUSINESS.   A MEMBER OF THE MAZEPPA UNION CHURCH. SURVIVING IS WIFE WANDA ALONG WITH HIS SON KEITH AND DAUGHTER KAREN.  ALSO SURVIVING IS A BROTHER ROY........AND TWO SISTERS SHIRLEY DIEFFENDERFER AND PHYLLIS KEISER.    HE WAS THE SON OF BLAIR AND KATHERINE FINCK.  
( NOVEMBER 28 , 1928 - JUNE 27 , 2016 )
MEL WILL REALLY BE MISSED AND I WAS SO FORTUNATE TO HAVE KNOWN HIM AND CALLED HIM NEIGHBOR FOR SO MANY YEARS.

18 MORE

WELL PERCY A FEW DAYS LATE MAKING THIS POST BUT BLAME IT ON THE HOLIDAY RUSH AT WEIS AND LACK OF PERSONAL TIME THIS WEEK.
ANYHOW I GOT IN THE CREEK BEFORE 6 AM LAST SUNDAY AND GOT A WONDERFUL PICTURE OF 2 DOE I WILL POST IN THE ALBUM.  SAW THE 2 MATURE EAGLES AND CAUGHT 18.  NONE OF REAL SIZE OTHER THAN A PICKERAL THAT WAS ABOUT 13 - 14 INCHES.  REALLY HOPE WE GET MORE RAIN AS THE CREEK IS WAY  TOO LOW.
