Motorcycle Carrier parts need paint
I needed to get a coat of paint on the parts for the motorcycle carrier I’ve been building for my van. I could see it was going to be too cool outside today for the paint to dry so I took the parts outside one by one and painted them and then brought the parts back in the house where I hung them to dry for the day.
Next I drove on down to Monte Rio
The wind was up a bit at Jenner today, so I decided to check out the steelhead fishermen at Monte Rio where the wind would be down.
I got on the water around noon. I could see most of the fishermen had already left for the day as evidence by the water leading off from the boat ramp from boats pulling out.
I saw Rene’s truck and trailer in the parking lot so I knew he was down there somewhere in his boat.
Rene is steelhead fishing
He said he was on a small pod of steelhead swimming in circles, so I stopped to shoot the bull and watch for a bit.
After a while he hooked a steelhead, but released it. A short time later he hooked another one
Steelhead can give a good fight which is one of the reason’s people like to fish for them.

Back to Monte Rio
I needed to get on home to put another coat of paint on my van’s motorcycle carrier I’m building. I did that and then just puttered around the yard looking to see what needs to be done to get the yard ready for spring.
That was it for me today for a nice one.
