Golden Meadow, LA Redfish Tournament

2nd place - Yay!
Fun day on the water with Chad.
What a nice day!  Chad and I fished the small tournament in Golden Meadow on Sat.   We started with a downpour just before the the blast off.  Not to worry, Chad was prepared with our rain gear.  We had about a 40 min boat ride to make it to our fishing spot.  I took most of the scenery pics while riding to our first hole, except the rainbow pic. I did get "fussed" at when I snapped the rainbow pic. (supposed to be fishing and looking for fish ya know) Also, just before I took the picture I said "look, look a rainbow." Before I could get a rainbow, out of my mouth, Chad is looking around for me to show him the fish I have spotted. Ooops! Then when I snapped the pic, he says "I know I didn't just here that camera phone." Tee Hee! Chad has had a rough day! hee hee hee hee  I did manage to catch the smaller of the 2 fish that we weighed in, so I wasn't totally useless.  (also, it should be noted - if Chad would have had a "true" fishing partner who could have seen and caught more fish, he may have been able to move up to 1st place)  Overall, for me, 2nd was good.  It was a great way to spend a Sat.

As far as the photos on Blogspot, do you use any type of photo editor before you upload? I have a routine for the pictures that I do so when I upload to Blogspot, I always have the same settings checked. Would you rather have that on the comments page or by email? Ours is happytrails88 (at) q (dot) com.
