Last friday morning I stocked over 1,000,000 golden shiners out at Otter Creek Preserve. Mike and I stepped into the woods at our last dump and found 30 nice morels! Then I headed over past Bloomington to Saybrook, IL and electrofished an awesome 8 acre rock quarry in the evening. Here are some pics:
We found 191 morels and dad caught 70 crappies while we were out in the woods. Dinner Sunday evening was just simply amazing!
Then we loaded up a mobile cabin home for a client and hauled it up to the fox chain of lakes. Not an easy thing hauling a cabin through Chicago!
When we finally made it up to the chain we set the trailer level, hooked up the utilities, and then went out to eat with Joe at a local bar and devoured 'extreme' burgers at 10 pm. We just slept in the trailer and started working on building the deck and screen room at 5 am. We worked till about 4 pm and headed home cause we had to deliver fish wednesday morning.
We took our dimensions for our screened opening and the trailer skirting and will be back up in a couple weeks to finish er off. Then we had some very pleasant chicago traffic on our way home which at one point we drove 4 miles in one hour. By the time we finally made it to the scene of the accident we had no sympathy for the people who collided into each other.
Saturday morning I picked up Noah at 6 am from Norris. He was camping out at the lake with his grandma. We loaded up a whole bunch of jumbo yellow perch and took them up to Victoria, Il to a fishing club. Then we dropped off a couple hundred lbs of fish food to another fishing club in the area and also dropped off a fish feeder to a different guy in that area. Here are some pics of Noah helping me today.
Then we headed into Peoria to load up again and headed out to El Paso, IL to drop off another load of fish food and some lake supplies to a client. Thats when I made it home about 2 pm and both Noah and I crashed together for a couple hours....Now Brook and I are headed to a MercyMe concert at the Civic Center.
Gonna be an exciting next few months.....
