A Fishing Day Saved
This was supposed to be a post about the dozens of hickory shad that the Professor and I boated during our mid-week assault on the Roanoke River near Weldon. Unfortunately, the Corp of Engineers bollixed up my publishing schedule by pinching that waterway’s flow to a mere 2,200cfs, exposing rocks seldom seen and turning our intended day’s float into a brief boat ramp drive-by. It was a long drive for a short look.
To salvage the day, we returned home and plunked the skiff back into the Eno for a second shot at the local white bass. Here, then, are a trio of shots from a day nicely saved, chasing whites.
Thanks, Professor, for a fine day on the water. We'll get back for those shad soon enough.
