06:05, 75F, drizzling. hope the hay guy's not getting this drizzle. roosters strangely quiet.
going out trawling today. not sure if offshore, or in the river.. hope there's no mosquitos.
09:30, high tide at suwannee, going out. we only pulled one trawl, offshore. the rest of the sets were in the back creeks and coon island with the seines. wind from east, 5 knts. 80's. water temp at the river mouth, 28.4C, off shore and back creeks, 29-31.5C. caught reds, sheepsheads, and trout, plus stingrays, cat fish, mullet, and the usual baitfish, including a fair amount of scaled sardines (har. jaguana) in one pull. the river banks and the marshes are 100 different shades of green, while the river is the color of dark coffee from the tannin runoff out of the swamps. ospreys fishing off the navigational beacons.
14:40, 92, partly cloudy but clouding up fast at the farm. the hay guy got rained on. hoping he got the hay up before it started. passed by his place going home and it was a cloud-burst.
15:50, overcast and grumbling near-by. crows calling. dogs napping after walk. sounds good to me. got 2 eggs. mosquitos still bad.
20:15, 74F. breezy from SW. overcast. thunder from the SW. nice cool wind from that storm - kept the mosquitos down in the lane. fed every one, walked everyone and came in early. put the pup up. I'll be up early so I can just let her out. some kind of moon should be out by then.
