I catch a respectable fish again. A Northern Largemouth (Micropterus salmoides salmoides) that qualifies for the Bass Slam too! Maybe I won't be outfished by a girl this time.
The girl won't go down easy though.
|A nice 15" Smallie|
Oh yeah, taking the lead back.
The lead may be in jeopardy...
|Good fish on the line.|
Okay, okay, we'll call it a tie.
Last, but certainly not least, a rare freshwater shark sighting...
In addition to observing this rare creature and catching our fair share of good fish, we saw a White-tailed Deer (Odocoileus virginianus) cross the creek, a family of three River Otters (Lontra canadensis) spying on us from behind the cypress knees at the water's edge, two more Whitetails browsing on the shrubbery along a rocky shoal, and the usual Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias) for good measure.
I'd say one heck of a day on Cypress Creek.
In case you missed it, be sure to check out the previous post for some nice photos of one of our favorite outdoor places. I got a little carried away and posted twice tonight, but don't worry... that's not likely to happen again anytime soon.
