I got the boat out and ready the day before.

After seeing fog in the weather report, we decided to meet up later than usual to allow the fog to burn off. We met at about 830 at our usual place if we were putting in at Charleston. After a quick stop at Hammonds for some Bluebacks, we were ready to fish!
Well, it turns out the fog wasn't going anywhere, anytime soon. We looked for fish around Charleston and Six Mile with no luck. From there we slowly worked our way over to Mary Alice and Bald Ridge. It was tough going as we only had about 20 feet of visibility! We decided to keep our speed to a minimum due to all of the rain leaving tons of debris throughout the lake. Any large log or board would have snuck up on us in that fog.
Once we got to Blad Ridge (about 11:45), we tied up for lunch at Smokey Q's. By the time we finished up most of the fog was finally gone.

So it was a skunk for the day but it was great to be back out on the water. Jim took the helm to load the boat while I went for the truck.
