Super Spook

A lot of people are saying that the Team's gone off-mission. They think that the primary objective of fighting the War on Weather, building an ARK (Advanced Rescue Kraft) and fishing has been forgotten. Forgotten and replaced by theological reflection. I understand, it's a concern, but you can do both

Look What The Weather's Done

To prove that, I went Lake Whitney and deployed a Super Spook. No, not a well known member of the Intelligence Community, but a topwater lure. To be honest, I didn't think I'd catch anything, as the lake was choppy and well above its normal water level, all thanks to our enemy, the Weather.

Spook Caught a Fish

Still, I figured the Spook might be large and noisy enough to attract any Bass that were lurking under the waves. So I cast off, and bang, a Hybrid hit the lure like it was going out of style, then another slammed into it. Well done, Spook, you work. 

Those in Peril on The Sea

But so too does our enemy and its not been idle, sending torrential rain down onto the Lone Star State in an apocalyptic display of power. You could see that today on lake Whitney, which resembled a turbulent inland sea.

A Typical Texas Streetscape

Smart Texans are moving to high ground, building ARKs and improving their fishing skills.

Fish on,

Stripers will hit anything that looks like a little rainbow trout because they are genetically predisposed to do that. They're very aggressive fish and it makes them fun to catch. I've never fished for hybrid striped bass before but those you're catching look formidable.

As to the weather, a window opened up for my daughter to land at Dallas on her way to Florida. She's there now and hopefully can take off before DFW is submerged the way that the Houston airport was.

You and your farming congregation has been praying for water for a long time. Here it is...

A couple of decent fish today and it was fun to go after them in the waves, but maybe we need to reverse the rain prayer... Good luck to your daughter at DFW, I think it's still above water. Just.

My wife pointed out that God already cleansed the earth with water, and the next time is supposed to be fire. I remarked that this may be God's way of prepping the land, to spare the South, by soaking it well, before sending down brimstone to destroy the tinderboxes of Detroit and Chicago, among others.
