A Day on the St. Lawrence

Dean Meckes, of Dean Meckes Charters, Andy Dahmen, my friend from Utah, my son Mark and I went fishing on the St. Lawrence River today (August 7, 2014). Andy and I were lowered into our wheelchairs, which had been placed in the boat, by an adapted Hoyer lift at the Antique Boat Museum in Clayton N.Y. We reached our fishing spot around 8:30. The river was like glass, with no wind and a bright sun. We had action almost all the time. In between it was peaceful and serene. Andy caught the biggest fish, around 4lbs on a homemade rig used to hold the pole for him while he reeled. All the adapted equipment we made worked great. We all had a wonderful time.
