Fishing > Working

Yesterday I got out with my friends John, Don, and Gary for a nice float on the Tippecanoe river. The weather was great, the wind made rowing suck at times, but the fish for the most part cooperated. The bite wasn’t crazy, it was downright slow at some points. The Tippe’ is super low right…
