oh goodness, that made me laugh right out loud.
thank you Jontok  :thumbsup:


I think I'll head out in a few and see if I can catch any more. Hike done, AWESOME hike it was. Great views of the meteors, and of course a lot of bears. Oddly I was only joking about seeing, playing patty cake with, them LOL. As it turns out though, did end up seeing a whole lot of them. Always cool seeing them.


Now, off to the lake and relax on a log, enjoy the breeze, and wait for a bite.

so i made it down to the lake


it was a beautiful day, i mean flat out beautiful - ya know...


BUT,
seemed the fish were not interested in biting anything i was presenting...


this guy however, was



and mighty happy bout being hooked too, let me tell ya...



so there i sat, relaxing completely, enjoying the breeze, and beautiful scenery as the sun set, and i thought
 "hey, why not take a photo of this beautiful sunset",



well, right as i took the photo of the sunset, line just started peeling off my reel!! 
woo-hoo!!!  fish on!



no, he's not a huge one by any means BUT he sure was fun to "fight" and land - and a great way to end the day


and the sunset after landing and then releasing my only fish caught for the day.  definitely a great day in my book. no doubt about it

Had a few hours after work, and lawn mowing, edging, and hedge trimming. Headed over to the lake to relax and see if any fish were maybe hungry a little.
Relaxed and enjoyed it immensly, and even had a little luck with a few fish
one carp



and, one channel cat

Thank You sir.
Been growing it for just over two years now. It is long enough to donate now (at least 10" in a pony tail), but just barely. I'm going to let it grow out a bit more yet, then get it chopped and donate it.


As I recall, you did the grow and donate thing also right? That was when we first all met - some years ago now.

3 yrs, 18 inches of hair. I wish I had the stones to do it again. Would all be grey this time though.

went over to my buddies house this evening.
hadn't been over in a while, so it was good to catch up, relax, and of course put hooks in the water
course not a single fish was caught, but
it was a great and relaxing time - as it typically is


now i say not a fish was caught, which is true - but -
there was this other thing  8)





when I lived in upstate SC (outskirts of Easley) many years ago - we called them "cooters", and they were prized as food items. it is an over thirty pound snapping turtle, though they do get much bigger.  this one was caught on rod and reel, posed with for a photo, and gently put right back into the lake from which it had come.
they can be rather ornery critters, lol

U.W inspired me to take up fishing again..  So I got a license and took my son out 3 days ago. We didn't catch anything, but my son really enjoyed it.  So much so, he's woke me up every morning since at 5am to go fishing.  Sadly the weather has been crude, and nothing has been biting, but we got to spend some time outside, and my boy has got pretty good at casting.  So time well spent I'd say. 

Trail around a SF pond.

   





About walked into this volleyball sized nest...   :-[



SP pond



2 days with out a bite, and I figured today would be about the same.. Still overcast, and rainy out..
 



Then I heard the drag buzzing on my son's pole.  Figured he was snagged in the lilly pads, but low and behold, he started hooting, and laughing. Turns out he had caught himself a nice little blue gill.   UL pole/4lb test/ orange beatlespin for bait.
 




Snapped a few pics, and then tossed him back in, and left with a good story.

That's the truth!!

Once the Mosquitos die down some here catfishing sounds like a great idea.
