First let me start by saying I don’t have an expensive camera and sure am not a professional photographer..lol I do however carry a little Samsung digital with me wherever I go.. or even sometimes just use my Smartphone to take pics of things that catch my eye.  There may come a day that I won’t be able to get out and see things like I do now.. and to me pictures are not just pictures but a way to tell stories of the memories in my life.  Went to a little town in Bentonsport Iowa last weekend, spotted this old bridge and its “tentant”, I think I will be heading back there to try some catfishing underneath that bridge….

You better get your decoy off that bridge before someone steals it…

Lol hard to see in the pic but that “decoy” I’m pretty sure had a mate on a nest on the lower beam beneath him…I’d pay good money to see someone go try to “move” him ....lol You see those videos with geese chasing people ?  That would not be my idea of a good time…

Thanks guys.. it was a pretty cool place.. very creepy first thing in the am.. and I’ve never fished the Des Moines River, but this spot really caught my eye and I could not help but try to get closer to check things out.

I started out this far.. and worked my way closer to get pic .... hoping I did not regret it..we just had a brief staring match , took the pic and was on my way….
