Last weekend my dh and son went on a fishing trip, we are blessed to have many lakes within 30 miles from our house. Thought you might like seeing one of the fish my son caught, he ended up with 7, dh 2.
Used to go with my Grandparents (although I was more of a cheering committee cuz I couldn't stand touching the worms ) ... brings back fun memories... although our lake wasn't nearly as gorgeous as that one - repleat with lilypads...SO PRETTY!!! Glad they had a fun day!
I fished the bay all my life with my dad. They were some of the best days of my life. We'd find a good spot, bait up and drop the lines. Then I'd lean back in the seat and catch some rays....ahhhh....I can feel it now. Then....that tiny "tug" on the line!!!!! :aktion033: Carefully, very carefully you start to reel 'em in. You don't want to shake him off, slowly keep reeling in....while you're yelling "GET THE NET!!!"
Then who ever caught the fish got his/her picture taken with their catch. It's funny that it was always the biggest one that got away....why is that?
When the fish stop bitting, we just move to another spot. What wonderful happy days I've spent on the bay.
I tell you there's nothing better than fresh fried flounder right after we dock the boat.
Oddly enough I don't think I ever fished in fresh water.
Thanks Paula - you gave me a huge smile. Oh, my dad is still around, but neither one of us has a boat at the moment :angry: We haven't been out in a couple years.
That looks like a nice place, so relaxing.
Dad took us fishing all the time growing up, for trout on ponds and on the ocean "jiggin" for cod. Fishing for trout involved alot of walking to get to the best part of the pond which always seemed to be around the next bend, although sometimes we used a boat too. We used to get fish but in later years it seemed we were more surprised when we caught something...but it's not about the fish it's about fishing (usually when I don't catch anything ).
What a peaceful looking lake! Thanks for the pictures. Yes, I love to fish. I actually was fishing at our lake house this morning and caught a nice sized cat fish--no bass which is what his looks like. Not only do we love to fish, we love to have fish fries when we catch them. YUM!!
