|Is That Not a Mighty Fish?|
Anyway, it was a gorgeous morning so we drove to the Tivoli River. We hadn't been since they rebuilt the fishing pier and we were anxious to see what the new what looked like. It turned out to be quite nice.
We actually live closer to the Ogeechee River than the Tivoli, it's just a stone's throw away, but it's rather wide and fast moving which makes fishing there a bit more of a challenge. The Tivoli is about 5 miles from here and is a beautiful little tidal river about 8.9 miles long. Being tidal you never know what you might catch. We use to crab there, but we've gotten so soft hearted that we can no longer cook live crabs, so we were just fishing. Usually don't catch anything at the Tivoli, don't even get many bites, but it's just so pretty there we don't mind.
Today was different, I'd no sooner got my hook in the water than I caught a little fish, not sure what kind it was, and then I caught 2 more. Mac caught one too. Lots more bites, but no more fish. That's ok, because it's really not about how many fish you catch, it's about the sun, the breeze, and who you're with.
