There is no doubt that there are still countless users of the obsolescent Windows XP, which is no longer supported by Microsoft. The successor to windows XP was Windows Vista, which was enormously unpopular with its users. Windows 7, with its several iterations, had some successes in the market place, effectively displacing Vista, but not winning over many of the huge base of XP users, except when the users purchased newer computers.

Big trout are on the move.

Even though the weather over the past week or so has been less than fantastic, fishing for big trout is a happening thing. A friend of mine e-mailed me a photo a few days ago of a trout he caught while wade fishing out of Port Mansfield. It was in the 10-pound class. She ate a slow-sinking Bomber Mullet (below) fished in a deep gut off of a sand flat. She got immediate CPR (caught, photographed and released).
