I'm not sure why, but I decided to have an energy drink at 8pm last night. By the time the caffeine worked it's way through my system and that I finally chilled-out from the near-musky experience, it was 2am. Although I went to sleep late, I did a stellar job of sleeping in today.
But then it was right to work.
I've recently been given a new chunk of responsibility over at The Fisherman (thanks Lido!). Between those extra words, an article that I'm contributing and a handful of blogs, I figure that I've written more today than any other day in my life.
I always said that I wanted to be a writer. Be careful what you wish for.
In any event, as soon as my reports were submitted, it was off to the lake to get my 30 minutes in before it got too dark. It's the eve of the full moon, so the fishing was fixing to be "en fuego."
The conditions could not have been any more perfect to fish topwater; overcast, dusk, the end of September.
But nothing, not even a swirl.
Figuring there was still lots to do at home before I could call it a night, I headed home.
