A cute bass fisherman; Martin’s going canoeing ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Okay, I know he’s a little rough around the edges, but I still think the young man to the left here is mighty cute, and I’d just about bet you he comes from north Florida. He has that look about him. Now, if he were my boyfriend I’d make him shave off those chin whiskers and maybe get a haircut. Otherwise there’s nothing I would change about him. 🙂

By the way, that fish hes holding is a large mouth bass, the number one fresh water game fish in Florida, and his fish is a beauty, the catch of a lifetime.

If you follow this site then you know I love the outdoors. I have a fishing camp and I live at the beach and I am always happiest when I am breathing fresh air. Hey, I’m a Florida boy. It’s who I am.

Early this afternoon a friend and I will travel 150 miles northward to stay in a Florida state park. Tomorrow morning we’ll spend four hours canoeing the Suwanee River. The weather’s supposed to be good. We have a cabin reserved for two nights and I’m pretty much fully packed for the trip: food, clothes and toiletries. And, of course, beer and wine. You can’t fully enjoy nature without a little alcohol in the mix. 🙂

Yesterday it rained all day nonstop, but this morning the sun is shining and the temperature will climb up to about 80 degrees F. It will be a little cooler up where we’re headed today, but still pleasant enough to wear shorts and a t-shirt during the day. We’ll barbecue chicken for our dinner tonight and also have a campfire. It’s going to be a fun two days.

Have a great Wednesday, friends.
