Panfish with Papa

Generally speaking, around Mother’s Day/mid-May is a good time to visit the fishing hole in pursuit of some panfish. Dad’s been doing that sort of thing for a long, long time on Galesburg’s Lake Storey. And for several years, kids and some grandkids have tagged along with some waxworms and bobbers of their own. This year, it was me and one of my boys, Jayce, who joined forces. While the weather conditions were quite pleasant, the water conditions were a mess after a storm the previous evening. The bite was not on fire, but we did find enough to keep us interested. Of course, we just have a good time hanging out, telling tales, talking trash, and goofing off.


A good time was had by all. Well, except for a batch of bluegill and golden shiners. Talk to you later. Troy
