FALL TIME IN MAZEPPA

FALL TIME IN MAZEPPA
IF THIS ISN'T HEAVEN IT'S PRETTY CLOSE
I HAVE STARTED A FACEBOOK PAGE TO KEEP ALL OF THE PICTURES I HAVE OF MY OLD HOMETOWN. I ENCOUNTERED A PROBLEM LINKING MY PHOTO ALBUM WITH THE BLOG AND DECIDED THIS WILL BE THE BEST AVENUE TO GO. SO IF YOU GO TO FACEBOOK AND TYPE IN......IMAGES OF MAZEPPA PA YOU WILL NOW FIND ALL OF THE PICTURES I ONCE HAD ON THIS BLOG. ALSO IF YOU HAVE PICTURES FROM THE MAZEPPA AREA THAT YOU CAN EMAIL TO ME I WOULD BE GLAD TO ADD THEM TO THE PHOTO ALBUM

GREAT DAY

THE CREEK WAS JUST A BIT CLOUDY FROM THE RAIN YESTERDAY AND A LIGHT RAIN AND OVERCAST WHILE I FISHED AND PERFECT CONDITIONS.  CAUGHT 40 PERCY AND THE HIGHLIGHTS WERE THE 17 INCH PICKERAL AND THE 15 INCH SMALLMOUTH.  ALSO FOUND THE BEAVER'S DEN AND SAW LOTS OF BLUE HERONS AND KINGFISHERS.

IN THE CREEK

PERCY I WAS BACK IN THE CREEK TODAY AND GOT 17 AND LOOK AT THIS MONSTER BASS I CAUGHT.  18 INCHES AND MIGHT BE THE BIGGEST FISH I EVER GOT OUT OF BUFFALO CREEK IF YOU FACTOR IN THE WEIGHT.  AND THE BASS IS BACK HAPPILY SWIMMING IN THE CREEK.   ALSO SAW A MINK AND JUST MISSED GETTING A PICTURE OF HIM.  AND THEN THIS PICTURE  OF THE ONE RESIDENT EAGLE

FLOWERS AND FISHING

HELPED TO PLANT THE FLOWERS AT THE CHURCH YESTERDAY AND THEN JUMPED IN THE CREEK TO FISH.  THE CREEK WAS PLENTY HIGH AND I EVEN THOUGHT ABOUT NOT EVEN TEMPTING TO WADE IT AS THE CURRENT WAS QUITE STRONG.  AT THE END OF THE PRIME HOURS FOR FISHING AND PROBABLY WHY I ONLY CAUGHT 3 BUT 3 DANDIES.  PICTURED AT A 14 INCH BROWNIE.......13 INCH SMALLMOUTH AND A PICKERAL THAT HAD TO BE IN THAT 16 INCH RANGE.  QUALITY NOT QUANTITY  ON FRIDAY.
