Day 138: Cutting Corners....Again

Killie.
When: Tuesday, September 27th, from 5:30 to 6pm
Where: The canal around the corner from my house
What: Fishing
Weather: Mostly cloudy, 74 degrees, SW wind at 12mph
Barometric Pressure: 29.94in and steady
Moon: Waxing, a day after new
Water Conditions: Low and clear

For the second time in just over a week, I found myself at the canal around the corner from my house. This may no be the most adventurous fishing, but it's so incredibly convenient. Fishing that close to my abode enables me to be home at reasonable hour after work and to be able to cook/eat dinner as soon as I get my 30 minutes in.

I have a hunch this won't be the last time I visit the canal.

I needed to defrost some hot dog rolls from the freezer. After sticking them in the microwave, I grabbed the ultralight, some small hooks and my camera and took a walk to the corner. The action was, of course, non-stop. I caught small sunfish and killies one after the other. There is always at least one or two people who walk by or see me and are absolutely amazed that I'm catching fish in there.

It's pretty cool.

And very convenient.
