Sitting here this Christmas morning awaiting my grandson and namesake John II awakening to find his delivery from the North Pole, I am reflecting back on a year of continued blessings for the Bowen family.
It was nice to get in a couple of hours of bass fishing on Belews Creek Lake near Stokesdale this week.
I sure am missing bass fishing. It just hasn’t worked out recently for me to do any.
At first it was hard to come up with something to write about in this week’s column, especially since I haven’t been fishing in a couple of weeks.
It felt great to get some limb work done in my yard last weekend.
The fishing season continues to wind down, but I found a small team tournament to fish in last weekend.
The state parks policy is to “allow nature to take its course.”
A number of area anglers have done or are doing well this weekend in large bass tournaments.
A good day of fishing last Saturday landed Tyler Purcell and I in 18th place out of 154 teams on day one of the two-day Angler’s Choice Marine Championship on Kerr Lake.
This past weekend made up for many of the poor fishing weekends I’ve endured this season.
