Hadn't posted any of my little day trips adventures I taken for a good bit. Some forum members wanted me to post more photos so here are some.
Picked out Route 40 near Inglis up to Yankeetown for a trip. The area can keep you busy for hours.
First stop was Inglis Lock Spillway.
Second stop was the lock itself, you couldn't get close to the lock itself.
View of the Barge Canal from standing on the side of the lock.
Stopped and checked out several short trails and paths that lead to Tidal Basins. Hear are just a few of them.
Stopped and checked out the FOLLOW THAT DREAM bridge. My son never been there before.
I do believe someone is trying to catch Elvis's Tarpon from the Bird Creek Bridge. Dozens of lines were caught on the wire. The lines were stuck on the powerline from one end to the other end on the bridge.
Stopped and had a picnic before going on to the end of the road at the ramps. Stayed for the sunset but had a 1/2 hour to blow. Took a few shots while waiting.
The sun set.
Had a fun day with my son. Discover new areas to me and tooked a lot of photos
Never seem more learned than the people you are with. Wear your learning like a pocket watch and keep it hidden. Do not pull it out to count the hours, but give the time when you are asked. --- Lord Chesterfield
I normally carry my rods with me on each trip. Didn't pack the rods because of the late start that I got. It was after noon before my wife was done shopping. Caught many fish in some of these hidden creeks. In fact I was surprise on one hike to see a couple of guys fishing, didn.t even see them till I step down on the shore. In just a minute one caught a Sheephead and the other hooked into something big that snapped the line when he set the hook. It was a big fish because I watched it run up current with his shrmip. My guess was a big red. We left quickly because they were none to happy to see us, it showed that must. At another tidal creek a small boat that came in showed me their limit on reds. They said they poled a long way up a creek and it was loaded with big reds up to 32 inches.
Wish I had my poles with me.
Red skies in the morn, sailor's be warned....
Ain't heard that in a long time. Nice photos.
Anyone ever fish those locks?
If'n you'd bought my book, you cheap bastage, youd'a read it on page four. :grin
We always said "a red sky at night is a sailor's delight and a red sky in the morning is a sailor's warning." And I knew that before I read page four of Magot's book. I'm just saying.
Great pics as usual.
