Warm sunset rays, warming up the colors across the lake


The Dunker’s from Arizona enjoying the fall colors that they do not see in the desert.  Beautiful time of day to head out for a little fishing.  The Muskie’s have been hitting this week.

There were a few things combined together on this boat trip that usually do not go together.  Wine and fishing but you really should try it before knocking it


One thing we were guaranteed was a beautiful sunset.  I took pics as the sunset changed



Happily the crappies were enjoying the sunset as well


Wine, crappies, pontoon boat, great company and a sunset go together wonderfully.  At 85 degrees and humid it was nice to get out on the lake for the breeze




Poe thinking it is time to put the cork on the wine and head in.  He enjoyed cooling off on the boat as well


This blog entry brought to you by minds of Char and Jenny.  Bon Appetite   Beer drinking fishing guys have nothing on us!


You could tell it was getting a little colder around the resort over Thanksgiving.  The winter hats and gloves were spotted around the resort.  We ended up with a full house for the weekend with folks enjoying time with a family and a few hunters still trying for the big buck.  Military folks are allowed to shoot a doe and we had a nice big doe taken across the road from the resort this weekend.


Table set for a wonderful Thanksgiving meal in Birchwood


Al and Roberta enjoying the holiday and waiting for Tommy to put down the camera for everyone to eat.


This year the lake was still open, some years it is froze over by Thanksgiving.  How do you wear off a big Thanksgiving meal?  A little fishing from shore.  Tommy was trying for the fish of 10,000 casts


Al hit his 10,000th cast and brought in this small muskie.  Even a small Muskie has him grinning from ear to ear and wishing Jimmy a happy Thanksgiving back in Chicago.  Only a few months and 9,999 casts til the next muskie in May.  I think the next one will be a little bigger, either way it was fun for Al to catch one last muskie for the season

Muskie fishing, warm hats, beautiful table, pumpkin bread and family (minus Jimmy and Tina) Thanksgiving does not get much better than at the Cliff
