Hard day of fishing. It still beats work! Not much was biting in 95* heat, and blazing sun. Crappies were biting best but sporadically.

This is a unique dock fishing experience on river. Boat picks you up, takes you to fishing pier, has bait, food etc. Met very nice and friendly fisherpersons. Ate our fish the next day....yummy!
