I had a wonderful day on Father’s Day, not with my poppa, unfortunately, because he lives in Florida, although I called him and we talked for a good long time. I went fishing with my bestie Laurel and her poppa Bill on the Kennebec. This is the fourth year in a row we’ve done this. It’s nice to have at least a pseudo dad on Father’s Day. Thanks Bill! We didn’t catch any stripers, but for the first time I saw a Sturgeon launch itself out of the water. Neat!
