Musky float. Cold. Water level was good. Too clear? Sun to start, clouds at close.
Only saw one other bote. Jet with gear chuckers. They got one.

New guy. (None of you usual suspects would get off your asses.  :laugh:)
We did this. Pound the banks. A lot.

We saw bald eagles, hawks, woodpeckers, other birds. No Muskies. Liking the new oar shafts even more.
Bote adjustments were good. Skunkage was not.
Bote is in the barn. Sand bags are in the bed of the truck. Bird feeders are full. Load of wood at the back door.
Redneck Christmas lights are up out back. Wine glass is full. Sweetie is making a hearty dinner. All good.

At least you got out......and home safely. Glad the bote is working out.

No more adjustments. All good. Not the lightest or most nimble craft. Bull in a china shop nimble.
Very stable fishing platform, though. You can stand anywhere on it's 5 ft. width and it's stable.
Needs much more fish slime for mojo.

I'd be overnighting on that in the middle of the river.

9,000 casts remain in my attempt at catching the fish of 10,000 casts.  Left Richmond around 7:30 and headed west to meet my dad in the Valley.  Snow the night before left some nice scenery on the drive up.

Having never tried to catch a Musky, we knew our chances were slim to none.  But, yesterday was a nice January day and what better way to spend it than floating on the Shenandoah?  My dad wanted to row, so I remained up front trying to keep flies in the water.

Despite no follows, fish sightings or strikes, it was still a great time.  The hope of a large predatory fish following or striking the fly was enough to make it worthwhile.  We explored some new water, and will certainly be back if water levels and weather cooperate.

Just a few photos...
