Fishin' Photo...

This past weekend I was lucky enough to go fishin' with my son and his girlfriend over at her grandparents pond.  It was the first time I've been fishing in years even though I love it.  Summer has been so busy the last few years cause dh has been makin' so much hay he just never took the time to do so.

We were having an unofficial fishin contest to see who could catch the most and we were also pretending to be Jeremy Wade (from River Monsters). 

Well, ds only caught 2 but he wasn't really trying and he decided it was more fun to troll the boat around instead of fish.  Morgan (dsgf) caught 9  and I caught 7 - but I caught the largest fish that day....this devil.  I know it doesn't look like much compared to lots of different fish but being so early in the year and the largest fish I've caught in years I was pretty tickled with it.

What fun!
Do you all fish?
What kinds of fish do you catch where you live?
We have mostly blue gill, crappies & bass here.  A few perch if you go to the right lakes but I don't think there were any in this pond.

  2. What a fun afternoon! You look so happy! I really love to fish, too, but don't get to go often. I'm in Texas and we have a lot of bass, crappie, blue gill, and catfish. There are tons of other types of fish, too, in the Gulf of Mexico (red snapper, yum!).

  3. I'm not a big fisherman but a chance to spend quality time with the kids would be heaven....

  4. We were ice fishing this winter. Hoping for cod, got lots of mackerel. Lots of different fish in the fjord. Here if we catch it we eat it. Did you eat your catch Roni??
