Geothermal Ponds, The Bulldog and Yellow Perch

I was a guest angler at my Brother-In-Law Dean’s neat, new place yesterday. This isn’t just any place. This is Nebraska’s first eco-friendly, geothermal neighborhood/private ponds development area called The Bridges on the southwest edge of Lincoln, NE: http://www.thebridgesne.com/Downloads/Geothermal.pdf Pretty area!

It even has a cool recirculating waterfall that empties into one of the lakes.

My fishing partner for the day was my Brother-in-Law Dean’s English bulldog named Harley. He was a trip! When I waded the shoreline, HE WADED the shoreline.

He would keep a watchful eye out for anything swimming in the water amid the spider webs, algae and everything else near the bank. He was my fish dog of the day!

I did manage to catch and release a good number of fish. It was a treat to catch dozens of Yellow Perch not typically found in southeastern Nebraska.

Uh oh, where’s my fishin’ buddy goin’ now …
