So, this happened.
I spent the bulk of yesterday exploring and fishing the waters of my childhood; The Mississippi River.
The pools and riffles around the Sauk Rapids and St. Cloud area were a bike ride away for me and my brother. We encountered smallies, pike, walleyes, carp, turtles, frogs, crayfish, catfish, and a gazillion different bugs. I even saw a Muskie come out below the 10th street dam once.
This river is full of life.
