Lake Pee Wee Shoreline
« on: November 26, 2012, 12:02:04 PM »
Have been messing with another shoreline photo I took on my recent 11/19 outing on Pee Wee.  Haven't been able to get online recently due to the day before Thanksgiving, I took some trash bags to the dump. stepped out of my truck, stepped in a rut, and rolled my right foot. Ended-up in the care center later that evening due to the pain.  Hyper-extended the tendons/ligaments, and have had the foot ace bandage wrapped and wearing one of those boot things, and on crutches.  Only just able to get upstairs (slowly) to the computer within the past couple of days.  Anyway, here's the photo  :)

You really should cut down on your drinking Greg  :drunk   ;D  Sorry to hear about the mishap. I sprained my ankle once so I can guess how you feel.
Nice picture.

Only coffee and sweet tea that day, but perhaps a drink might have eased the pain afterwards  ;D .  Wouldn't mind a mixed drink right now, but the anti-inflammatory meds they have me taking kinda nix that idea, lol.  Appt. with a podiatrist tomorrow morning to see how things are doing.  :)

Several years ago I made an ambulance run on a 40 something year old woman that had broken her leg (tib/fib area) and while we were trying to treat her her husband tells us he told her all she needed was some whiskey and she would be better.  ::)

Having one small drink tonight  :) . Went to the podiatrist this morning and they took xrays, and the bone on the outside of the foot is fractured. he took me off the anti-inflammatory meds saying that they sometimes inhibit healing, and to use only tylenol.   Has me wearing one of those hard plastic (but padded thank goodness) walking boots.  5 weeks he says to heal.  So much for getting outdoors to do any activities.

Thank you.  Already becoming a drag wearing this heavy-a$$ boot, but, we do what we gotta do.  :)

How far down is the water right now? I was looking at the brush near the shore and thinking that could be good come Spring.

The water has lowered a bit right now, which they seem to do to the lake each winter.  The lake is actually a 420 acre reservoir that that they can fill/empty through a pipeline from the Green River.  I've fished the heck out of that brush line in warmer weather with not much luck (could just be my technique though, lol).  Water levels in that spot usually are at around 1' - 2' along the brush, then very gradually deepens to about 3' (on a good day) about 20-30 feet out from the bank.  This is a man-made lake, very shallow, with a muddy bottom, and no structure.   A few lay-downs along some of the banks.  Scott has fished a couple of times with me, and he can tell you how shallow it is.  The deepest section, basically a trench, runs out from the dock a ways, and gets anywhere from 15' - 23' in places.  Still a smooth, muddy bottom there also.  Last time I was out, when I took these photos, the fish were hovering between 8' - 17' feet in the trench.  What makes it convenient to fish here is that it's only 1.5 miles from my house, so getting there is quick. 

Speaking of Scott (pondhopper), haven't seen him on here in awhile.  Scott, you still out there?  Probably just missed your posts, as I haven't been around much lately.

Sounds like you need to sink a few Christmas trees out there.

Wish someone would, but they watch the lake like hawks from the water treatment plant that sits near the lake.  They just now re-opened the back ramp that has been closed since 9/11, but I don't use it as it's too secluded and no dock.

ww, don't know if you have access to any rocks, but everytime you go there you could take 5 or 10 rocks or so varying say from the size of your fist to canalope size, triangulate where you what them and build a rock pile(with your back to them of course). Eventually you'll have your own place to target those fish in there  ;D

Waterwings, sorry to hear about the foot. Ouch ! I feel ya, I got a knee that is acting up and after 1cortisone shot and some anti inflammatory meds it is better but doc says a replacement is next when this quits working. Going out 1 piece at a time sucks. Ha ha.  What Buzz is saying makes sense. Just like Johnny Cash "1 piece at a time."
 
 
Bass don't eat what they don't see.

Had an appt with the foot doc this morning.  Took xrays, and he said it's 3/4 healed now, and he'll see me back in 3 weeks.  Still wearing the hard-soled medical shoe. which he calls sandals on steroids.   Still hobbling around, and not driving yet.

At least you are healing. I would have to find a way to drive though.

I’m still here Greg. Lot’s going on and not much “home time” lately.
I don’t know if you remember but years ago I tore a tendon in my left foot refinishing the floors in this house. Now I wear inserts in my shoes and get a shot every month. Dr. say’s they could operate but “it might not heal right” and could do more harm than good.
Yes I do know the exact spot where you took that picture and yes it is shallow. Might be something in early spring but not later in the year when it gets hot!
