Happy Fourth of July! I hope everyone is enjoying time at the lake, having backyard barbecues and spending time with family and friends today. We are visiting with several of my cousins and friends in Wister. It should be a great day.
Cash and I have been going fishing this week since I finally got my boat out, and have a little morning time to hit the lake. I was afraid that since it was going to be July before I had any time to fish that it was going to be smokinâ€™ hot, but this week has been unusually cool.
