One more shot at the salty side

With only a few days left of his stay in the U.S. Yasunori Imai wanted to catch a bluefish, so we took a ride down the Housy yeaterday morning.

Foggy most of the way up there, and on the water, too. When we launch just after 7, we are the only boat on the lake.

Heavy fog, […]
