High of 80, passing showers
It's been over 50 days since I caught a fish. I've spent every weekend working on my irrigation installation at home but the end is in site. All 9 valves, 38 sprinklers, 12 shrub jets and controller clock are installed and working. All I have left to do is install the weather station, which will automatically determine the water run times/days based on daily on-site weather readings of temperature, humidity, rain, wind and evapotranspiration.
I still have a repair to do on the dock waterline, which was broken during trencher use in the first week, and I have to bury all open trenches in the front. The back and sides are mostly done.
I feel like I have missed out on a lot of fishing this spring with Subaru Jim. He and Jerry and Al have been going out several times a week over the last two months. Soon, Jim and Jerry will head back north to PA for the summer. I can only look forward to their return next winter and be thankful that Al lives in SWFL all year long. Hopefully he and I can spend time fishing this summer. My lifelong friend Mike Taylor plans on visiting again in July, from Phoenix, for a week of fishing.
