    Sing the title like the Beatles did Back in the USSR, that's how I feel being gone for almost 3 weeks in the hot & humid South..... although I did have one excellent day of fishing for Cobia & Spanish mackerel off the North Carolina coast but netted only one SM into the boat. It was so hot (water temperature was 79°) that it was almost unbearable but I am thankfull for the cooler of ice cold Coors Light!!!

    I had my wish granted when I got back home, I got the Washington I used to love back, cooler temps & some (but not a whole lot) of precipitation!!!
    Hit Summit lake today with my Son (on leave from the CG) & fishing partner.
    6 rainbows & 3 kokanee were taken from the 64° waters. I'm back in heaven.
    The first kokanee decided to jump back into the lake but my super quick reaction was to grab the net & scoop the sucker back in the net (it all happened in slow motion)!!! You can see the bugger getting restless in the pic......

    I know how you feel, I've been in southern Louisiana (NOLA area) for the past 3 years (it's hard to beat the fishing in that area though; red snapper, redfish, specked trout, black drum, flounder, bass, .....), it's great to get away from the heat and humidity. I just moved back to WA a couple of weeks ago, but I've yet to get out on the water, too many "honey do's" associated with the move. One of these days.

    @Caveman Jim will do, I'm always up to finding new fishing buddies, especially those with a lot of knowledge and great fishing skills.
