Memorial weekend…the invasion.

This was the weekend that brings the invasion.

It is the memory that makes the occasion.

Welcome the googans that come into view.

Just until labor day they’ll do what they do.

Thank you to all that have fought and have died, paving the way to turn this tide.

Keeping safe to make the transition, so all of us can just keep on fishin.

Freedom to partake, right on que.

Luvin life on the lake equally…usny…right along with you.

Sunset savvy…

One thing their is no lack of in my view is the sunset along the waterfront.

365 days is a plethora of opportunity and as you can imagine thousands of shots as each one makes its decent from the sky, through clouds, or not…into the dunes and the water.

Romantics love sunsets, fisherman are keen on that time of day, they are the back drop of many life adventures, pictures and places.

With as many that fall right in front of my face, I struggle not to be a sunset snob.   Probably one of the most photographed phenomenons of nature, little is required of the photographer, as the light cast sparks the creative eye, not only on the event, but the subject matter on which it falls.

Hope you enjoy some of the sunset in my view…

First taste…


Spring is full of firsts…from the no color of winter to the first color of spring as it makes itself available,  one step at a time.


First Saturday in May opens the possibility,  for the first taste (since last spring ), of the tastiest fresh water fish in my view.  The flaky flesh of the walleye pike, broiled or fried rivals ocean haddock in its white appearance, texture and taste, as it crosses your palette.


A bump on the head, and a swipe of the knife,  it doesn’t get any fresher from eating to ate.


Caught up in our first taste of walleye for the season…
