Almost a month since last post, so quite a bit to catch up on. Need to remember to be more consistent.
Fishing has been a complete disaster so far this year. On the last expedition, I tried every bait I could with no luck. I am not certain what to try next. One idea would be to make a single long trotline instead of several smaller banklines and try for deeper water. Or give up altogether, but I just can’t accept that. Unlike hunting, I have had many successful fishing expeditions over the years. So I am confident things will turn around eventually.
Despite that, the canoe has been working out well. Still swamping it occasionally, but that tends to only happen when I am rushing.
Baby chicks have gotten big. They are sort of in that awkward teenage stage were they are neither chick not chicken. So far there have been no more fatalities, but I won’t know what percentage are hens and what are roosters. The big concern is that I end up with mostly roosters like the last flock.
