Dan and I took Dustan's Chicken Cow up and down the Joe for half a day today. The river looks about as good as I've ever seen it. Water temp was hovering around 45.5 which is amazing. Really looking forward to fishing the Joe this spring...unless we get a blow out of course. We hooked nothing but it was nice to get out and do some scouting.
I also spent about a half hour photographing the two Traveling Decoys from the Duck Hunter's Boat Page that were carved by the late Lee Harker. The decoys are destined to be given to Lee's grandson Blake in a couple weeks. A Bluebill and giant Black Duck...these two blocks traveled all over North America since October...its really neat to read the journals and read the signatures on the bottom. I do it every year....neat stuff.
