This is "glass". This is where you should be in the early morning, on a boat, catching fish. NOT doing what I am behind the camera working like a dog. C'est la vie.

Nice fishing spot Larry is that near your cabin? So what other things are you taking pictures of? Maybe something related to your business?

Richard, no, I just got envious of the fact I had to be working on the shoreline, knowing the fish were laughing at me, so I turned around and snapped a pix of the lake. My cabin is 2200 feet in the mountain area, probably about 400' higher than lake level.

Must be quite a chore launching your boat from up there.

Larry

Had a similar problem, spent several months doing off season reno's at a local hotel. The view at times was rather distracting. Z

I just ran the mower past the small boat in my back yard and promised myself it WOULD get into the water this year. I promise, I promise, I promise.

Thanks for the reminder.

Czizzi...
Is that the York River bridge? If so...wth happened to all the buildings that used to be right on the water? Or is this pic a little further downriver from what I'm thinking? Is that the Duke of York?

Vic - Yes, Coleman Bridge - was wondering if anyone would notice.... The new Riverwalk buildings are just to the left out of picture. The girls in bikini's unfortunately were much more interesting than the buildings. The Duke of York has my fingerprints all over it.

Here is was another reason why I pulled out the camera one day.

Oh Ok...yeah Coleman...couldn't remember for the life of me. Looks like it is completely changed from the last time I was down there. Gee...what a difference 10-12 years can make...lol.

I am not a fisherman myself so if I was at any of these places I might take a boat out for a while or go to a good seafood restaurant and see what was good on the menu. I can see the attraction though and I bet the fishing is great in at least some of these places.

Richard.....A bad day fishing is far better than a good day at work.

Maybe so Larry but I never saw the attraction myself. I know people enjoy it and I was on a boat once where others were fishing but it never interested me. I would go fishing though again with others as I enjoyed being with them and it was still fun for me.

Larry is absolutely right about being on the water at sunrise, especially when the surface is like glass. There is nothing more relaxing and peaceful.

Mike - I've fished chopper blues out of Barnaget many times. Never when the water was like glass though.

I know this seems strange....but water like that was kinda scary when I was in the Navy. I saw it a few times in different areas of the world...out in the middle of whatever ocean or sea we were in and it was just jolting to not see some dips and waves when you went on deck.

Just a bit of trivia. All those rocks they used to make the jetties came from the Holland and Lincoln tunnels into Manhatten.
