Memorial Day Fishing and June 4th Fishing!

6 Jun

It’s so much fun fishing…the boy’s are getting into and Steve is just becoming the fisherman I love:)

So, on Memorial Day, no joke - Garret said he wanted to go fishing with all of us:) We said, "Heck yea...!" and off we went:)

Gage thought, "Hey, I'm going to put on my shirt." The sun was shining bright and we had to add major sunscreen to each boy:)

I was so excited to be out fishing and enjoying our day,,,big sunglasses help for no make-up:) LOL!

Gage found a softner sheet in his shirt and I swear this was a great find...I mean, hey, it was like a treasure because he was not expecting to see this in the middle of the lake in our boat...man, he cracks me up!

This is just part of the beautiful scenery we were checking out as we were fishing...this is the view of the "channel" from one lake to the other.

What a beautiful yellow flower!

Now Garret was getting into the fishing...he likes it for about, well, like anyone he likes it most when he literally is catching fish, but with some patience he stuck with it as we all attempted to get the big one!

And, as Garret patiently waited for the fish to take his bait, Gage, as usual, asked me questions about the world, life, science, history, inventions, school, etc. as he always does and then...

...Gage says, "I think this is the spot." Ok, so I kind of ad lib here, but...

...literally, yes, Gage catches a big Sunfish:)

You cannot get a more proud fisherman...well, ok, every fisherman is a proud fisherman:) Love it!!!!!

So, as I relax and enjoy the sun, the view, and casting out with the thought as usual that "a bad day at fishing is better than a good day work" (haha) as my dad always says....

...Garret gets a hit and starts pulling in...

...the big one!

Yea, the boys are hitting it big:)

Then we sail off to another spot...we just really are blessed to be near so many beautiful spaces the Lord has created for us!

The boys ended up catching at least 2 or 3 more fish each, yes, EACH!! How cool is that:)? Then Steve found this guy...

Ok...he had the bass...then that was lost and he got this one...whoops:)

No, no...it's ok...you get some on the line and then they fall off and you get the little ones...Steve's story is not over yet though!

Yea...Steve got the bass:) Just a bit too small to keep, but he did get that bass when he was with me and the boys:) The boys and I were so excited!

After all the fishing, Garret was all excited to go swimming...Gage was not so sure as yet it was so hot outside, but the water maybe not so much:)

But, before you know it Garret aaaannnddd Garret are swimming out in the swimming area and Steve and I smile on happy to see them happy:)

Gage then plays with Steve on the slide and swings...Garret did for a bit, but we all know, Garret really wants to be...

…crunching grass:)

Well, then, Memorial Day ends and after a fun Monday off we say goodbye to fun, get back to work, but we fit in a little more fishing on June 5th, Steve and I that is.

Steve gets the boat unlatched here...fixes the cooler with the worms and is ready to back 'er in, but not before...

...I see a photo-op:D.

It’s hot out…

...and Steve takes a dip quick before we head out! I love it! 🙂

So, literally, we head out...within two minutes or two casts Steve catches a 15-1/2 Large Mouth Bass!!!!! So cool!!! We ended up throwing this back, but it was Steve's biggest fish to date to catch and this same day he caught 3 pike...one baby, one 20 incher, and one 24 incher, but he threw all back...how cool is that? We weren't sure about the Pike regulations, so, that's why he threw back and I didn't have camera then.

Here’s the baby pike…

No that's the Bass...

...here's the baby Pike:)

Seriously, fishing is so much fun!!!  We are so blessed to have the boat to enjoy this family and couple time together!
