Farm Island and Sails
Chuck and I went paddling this afternoon at Farm Island. We met at what is known as the boater's beach, which is near the main boat ramp. We paddled down to the entrance into the fingers/inlets into the interior of the island. We went up two of the fingers before heading back to the beach. Chuck used his sail a bit on the way down to the entrance and on the way out of the fingers. The water was very high and I did not notice near as many carp as the last time I was in the fingers. We ended up covering about 5.4 miles.
