A Welcomed Day Off in Maryland


First post-spawn largemouth. Little guy was returned unharmed (not counting the lip injury) to the Elk River on Maryland's Upper Eastern Shore
 Things are absolutely insane right now between work and home. The Tugboatdude brilliantly purchased some Yankees vs. Orioles tickets, which basically required me to take a day off of work (wouldn't want to be late for that 7:05pm first pitch!!).   It was a wonderful day off.  We got up late (meaning 6:30am), hung out with Hank, took him to day care, and headed to Havre de Grace and across the Susquehanna Flats to Maryland's upper eastern shore (where Delaware, Maryland, and Pennsylvania meet).

We enjoyed some outstanding mid-day fishing (which never works for us), found out that the bass are definitely OFF their nests (HOORAY!) and field-tested a set of tires (Cooper Discoverer AT3) that were sent to me for a blog review (I know! Awesome, right?). 

Kept the day going with an amazing dinner of grilled butterflied chicken breasts with adobo butter (Bobby Flay's recipe) and grilled German potato salad (also Bobby Flay's recipe) with fresh chives from the garden.  My wife, Tugboatdude, and I all chipped in, with Hank doing his best to interfere. 

Capped it all off with a 15-inning pitching duel at Camden Yards in the private-level boxes.

Yup.  That's a day.  Photos and stories to come!
