4 poles
2 licenses
2 eager boys
2 patient parents
beautiful weather
new pond
5 hours fishing
23 fish later (catch & release)

We had a blast fishing yesterday!!
The boys already want to know when we can go again.
Derek enjoyed casting more than anything.
Austin was able to bait his own hook by the time we left.
Mom, on the other hand... not so much.
Dad caught the least fish.
This was due to the fact that he baited and unhooked for us all.
He is awesome.
Mom came home with racoon eyes from wearing sunglasses all day.
And a headache, too.
Derek thought the huge toad that came up out of the water was cool.
We all enjoyed a day of being unplugged and electronic and cell phone free.
Austin has always been the comptetive one...
fishing is no exception.
We all thought the "Crappie Bait" smelled... um...like crap!

Now, if you'll excuse me...
I have some boys anxiously awaiting a game of H-O-R-S-E in our driveway.

Happy Tuesday!

Crappie fishing!! Brings back so many memories. I spent 10 years in Texas as a child. My dad used to take us out to the lake for the whole day. I was the competitive one in my family;)
Looks like a good time was had by all!
