Approximately two hours before sunset, while on the boat, a dark rain cloud began to canopy over the top of the lake. After gathering my equipment to get ready for a quick boat ride back to our cabin, I realized this gentleman had no intentions of leaving. As the rain began to fall, he urged me to grab the fishing pole from the front deck with a black plastic worm already tied and start fishing.

Sucker Gigging

As our boat came around another shoal on the Eleven Point River, we were utterly in awe of the moon that seemed to be sitting on top of the water.
