The Only Bad Thing about Vacation

For all of last week I took a relaxing vacation to Canada with my family on our annual trip. I had lots of fun, but still missed out on a lot of Save the Harbor fun such as the glorious capture the flag game at Spectacle Island on Staff Day. I was extremely disappointed to find out my trip would interfere, but I had to go. I spent my week fishing for large mouth bass, small mouth bass, yellow Perch, and the annoying sunfish. If I had to compare and contrast lake fishing and sea fishing, I would argue that lake fishing has a much higher success rate, but the reward is not quite as big. The largest fish I caught in Canada was an 18 inch large mouth, but at the Harbor I could catch a striped bass more then twice that size. I just finished my first day back and my first day this year at Mcdonough Sailing Center, but it was a slow day because of the threat of heavy storms. Not many kids showed up, but at least we had two very interested and persistent kids to boost our spirits.
