We’ve had near-drought conditions in SW MI and today was the last day of a heat wave. The Paw Paw is low and running less than 300 cfm like late summer.
I like to just stop and look around. Today as I was eating my PB&J there was commotion in the shallow water right in front of me and then the hump of a snapper emerged gliding along and then it raised it’s dinosaur head. Reminded me of Godzilla. Then I saw the smaller snapper that he was chasing, presumably a female.
Took me forever to do 12 miles because I was happy to just putter along. About 90 degrees when I launched but it felt like it cooled off throughout my paddle and when I popped down to Lake Michigan after my paddle it was a delightful 64 degrees.
