I wish I could say it was all because I was too busy fishing, but it's mostly due to relocating the headquarters of The Naturalist's Angle.
I've officially moved from Memphis to Birmingham. For the first time in quite a while, Kelly and I are living under the same roof again.
Living in a new city, I'm home again.
In the limited amount of free time we've had between moving trips (with both vehicles loaded to their limits) and the daily grind of work/school, we've still managed to find a little time for some local fishing.

On Easter Sunday we went to Lewis Smith Lake (Fishing Through Life Bill's home water) in the kayaks. I caught a single 4" Longear Sunfish, while Kelly caught a whole bunch of sunfish, a few small bass, and this little thing...

This fish more than qualifies for the Bass Slam. It's been a while since we've added anything to the list, but it's still a quest we plan to complete. Dobby dog got to go along on this trip, and Kelly couldn't help but get her in this photo for a little dog-fish size comparison.
|The fish looked a little thin, but it was still a lunker.|

Perhaps the most colorful Green Sunfish I've ever seen...

Whew... that pretty much brings us up to date.
Even in a "magical" new place with better fishing opportunities close to home, I'm still being consistently outfished by a girl.
Wait until you see what she did yesterday.
"Earth Day" fishing report coming soon.
