Cottage report

Very hot the last couple of days.  The water is finally a tiny bit warmer for the top 3 feet.  Dip your toe lower and you feel it.  Don't swim where you just disturbed the water!

Last weekend the fishing-mad neighbour caught this huge pickerel off his dock.  Man is that an ugly fish!  We got a couple of fillets, and the taste is superb!  Later, I caught a large large-mouth bass, and that is quite a tasty fish, as well.

This is the time of the deer and horse flies.  Sometimes on the dock, you just go whap-whap-whap, and the little fish go crazy snapping up the dead flies.  The blueberries have just started.  Hopefully, we'll get some more rain to keep them going.
