"Hey Luke!

How come you aren't catchin' anything?"
"I don't know! Why don't you ask the FISH!"

This was the conversation I overhead this evening when the kids were fishing with Bob. LOL

We've really been trying to get in some fishing this summer because we all enjoy it and there are plenty of lakes around to try out. Today it was pretty windy but we decided to try it anyway because Bob had the day off (his first day off in about 2 weeks!) and it was nice out. I don't have a license but I give the kids a hand here and there when Bob can't and I take pictures or read.

They didn't have much luck with catching anything that was really edible - except for a decent sized Perch and a few Bullheads. Jozie caught the most and the biggest fish - including a great big Snapping Turtle! LOL Between her and Bob the caught the same turtle 3 times and then got a little Painted Turtle as well. Bob also got a big old Carp on but lost his bait and hook since they weren't exactly fishing for the big ones from the shore. The Snapper took 3 hooks and sinkers too so we figured it was about time to call it a night.

We saw a little bit of wildlife as well in the from of Canada Geese, a beaver, and some beautiful American White Pelicans. The Pelicans are really quite numerous around here and are huge birds.

Zach went fishing yesterday with the boys. They never catch anything...then again Zach doesn't exactly go at the times when fish normally bite;) I keep forgetting to email and ask the town you live in (I have it written somewhere) just because I want to see where you are in relation to me now.
