Camping: Fishing

Fishing and Camping go hand in hand.  So while I was packed our trailer and few weeks back I had to buy some extra fishing poles, which actually both broke both their first cast...it would have been easier for me to throw 25 bucks down the toilet.

Anyway, on Thursday morning last week, there was a fishing derby at the lake.  Brendan was soooo excited about fishing...so much so that he was convinced that he was going to win the derby by catching the most fish.  So we headed over to the channel and the fish were waiting for us.  They were patiently waiting for all those worms and hotdogs that a bunch of "know nothing about fishing" parents are putting bait of hooks.

Brendan thought that fishing off the dock would be the best...Mike and the other boys stayed on land and before we knew it, Austin caught his 1st fish, and then another and another. A little bit later Connor had one on his hook, and Austin was reeling in another.  Soon Lucas was loosing interest, so I had Mike help him get a fish on his hook...Brendan still haven't caught one so he moved over by us.

By the end of the derby, Austin had caught 12, Connor 2, Lucas 1, and Brendan 0.  There was a very unhappy big brother at our campsite, especially when Austin came back with his big box of candy because he was on of the top 5 fisherman.

 







during the middle of our fishing, these adorable little ducklings came by the shore...so cute!!!
