More rain
« on: 07/15/15 14:27 UTC »
It has been a record book summer for rain in my area, central West Virginia. Day after day of severe flooding. My home lake, Summersville, has actually been closed this week due to high water levels. When we have had a chance to fish, it has been very good. We fished the evening of 7/04, 9pm until 1am and we had 15 fish which included 3 walleye, a 5 lb. largemouth, and several good size smallmouth. All fish but one were caught on baits I make using Do-It molds, that makes it even better. The ball head weedless finesse jig has been the bait recently. We are supposed to get a break in the weather the next couple days but then the forecast is 5 more days of rain and thunderstorms. I hope the weather man is wrong!!

We had a heavy rain line go through here last evening along with plenty of lightning and wind.  Dumped over an inch in a pretty good hurry.  Air temps went from 90 to 71 degrees in about 15 minutes.  Cooler, but sticky humid today.

Denny, I can only assume you are located in a drought stricken area. No rain is definitely worse than too much rain.

I released 5 grass carp in the yard yesterday so that way at least something's keeping the grass cut!

  I use to live a mile from the lake. It's getting closer every day.
I like the person I have become. I am not going to live forever, but while I am still here, I will not waste time lamenting what could have been, or worrying about what will be.
