We have gained a fanclub
I was reminiscing with Calvin this morning about fishing in North Carolina. There were several ponds and rivers we would often visit. When we went fishing there, it was a whole day thing and we had a blast! Sadly, our places in South Carolina are limited. However, we still have a good time.
While on the second pass across the back of the pond, after talking about being followed by the cows at some of the farm ponds in North Carolina, I notice a big azz turtle watching us do our thing. Cal said that the turtle followed him around the pond yesterday and he had been in our wake for about 45 minutes or more. Hrmm. A fan club huh?
I think so. Yesterday, Cal took some stinky bait with him when he went down to the pond. I say stinky because that stuff funked up the house for HOURS after he thawed it out in the sink. It didnt help the bait any knowing that it had been thawed and refrozen several times before this last trip. Even incense and air freshener didn’t kill the smell until late last night. Ah, but I digress, we are talking about fishing. Yesterday, he took what was left of the stinky bait and tossed it into the pond where I am sure some scavanging fish or turtle happened upon it and decided to have a juicy picnic. Maybe it was this turtle “Waiting for something AMAZING to happen” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTX51OzGndw –start around 1:00 That kid? Ya, its our turtle.)
Yea, the turtle followed us all the way around the pond. I know he was disappointed but I am certain that it has a memory and will do so again when we return.
Short post but thought it was a great fishing tidbit. What do YOU think?
