On The Road...

Travis Frank

Life is funny.  Or, maybe I just think so.  One day I am standing in 4 feet of snow, and the next day the grass is green and I'm hiding from the sun.  I've been a travelin' fool these past few months.  It has left me with stories to share and pictures to show.  As a producer for Ron Schara Productions I am sent to many of the countries pretty places.  We capture an outdoor moment and put it to tv.  Most recently, I've been assinged as the producer of a new show for a Pennsylvania company called FOXPRO.  This show has pretty much taken up most of my life.  In 5 months I have been to 13 states, one different country, and knocked out a full season of shows.  For this very reason, you have not been reading any fishing reports.  Until the past few days, I simply have no fishing stories to share. 

Monday morning I returned from the Saskatchewan snow drifts in time to hit the Mississippi river.  This is always one of my yearly highlights.  The river opens enough to slip in a boat and the walleyes are running.  Early reports indicated the bite was on.  Two hours after the airport cleared my luggage, I verified the reports first hand.  We plucked about 20 walleyes that afternoon and about 50 the next.  Not much for size, but you won't hear me complaining. 

If my first two days home is anything like the next, it's gonna be good!  Until then, here are a few pictures that I have taken in the past few months.  I hope you enjoy them.  It has been a blessing to be able to take so many (ps. find me on facebook if you would like to see more).  Life is good!  God is good! Until next time, keep on livin' the dream!
