Today my dad and I took the canoe out on Lory lake. We didn’t get a single bite, we tried shallow, deep, and many different techniques. The wind made it hard to control the canoe, but it was a beautiful morning all the same and not at all uneventful. We were on the west side of the lake when I saw something wiggling on the surface of the water, we paddled over to it, and it was a bullhead’s severed head still moving and still bleeding. We paddled a little further, and found another one. This time of year bullheads and other members of the catfish family go dormant, I think that a snapping turtle was moving along the water chomping on dormant bullheads. There was also a beautiful sun rise, and we got a great view of some trumpeter swans, so it just goes to show that when the fish don’t bite that doesn’t mean it will be be an exciting morning.
