Fishing Schooner Sighted
- FBBB --
The days are getting longer and warmer, the daffodils are blooming,
and this young man's fancy turns to thoughts of... fishing.
Last weekend I tried setting line of hooks out of the lil'winnie, but
with no success. I soaked my fancy imported worms all night, all I
got for my efforts was a good workout.
Today I hoisted the foresail on the Margaret Ellen and headed out to
the middle of the lake.
It was a lot easier rigging the line (45 feet of clothes line with a
dropper every six feet or so, a five pund diving weight to anchor it,
and 15 feet of poly and a lobster buoy to mark it,) out of the
scooner than it was out of the teal. But I'm sure if the fish will be
any more impressed. If this doesn't work, I may have to resort to rod
The low tide revealed a short coming to my anchorage. I'm going to
have to move to deeper water so I can leave my daggerboard and rudder
