|It's really nice to have the beds set up all the time|
|This fish had a weird kink in it's back|
|The birds always come around once you have a fish on the stringer|
The first night in our trailer was a cold one! Weston had brought down a generator which allowed us to run the furnace until the middle of the night when it ran out of gas (good thing we didn't have any neighbors to complain about the sound!) then the temperature really dropped. So glad we weren't in a tent! The weather got warmer and warmer the longer we were there, so we figured Jenny would be fine in the tent with a good heater. The trailer was really nice to get out of the wind and hang out and cook, plus the outside grill made it easy to fry up some fish without everything smelling like fish once we were done.
|We spotted him again a few minutes later with a fish|
When Jenny arrived the next morning we thought our fishing luck had changed for the better because she had pulled down Weston's flat-bottom boat. It's a sweet duck-hunting boat that doubles as a fishing boat pretty well because it's stable enough that standing up isn't a big deal. That first evening we tried trolling some lures around without any luck. We marked fish on the finder but they didn't like what we were serving up.
|Not sure if this was supposed to be a smile or not|
My favorite part of the trip was at night when Jenny's family hung out in our trailer and we all played cards and relaxed. Phase 10 can really make for some intense competition! We all stayed up way too late to get anything of an early start with the next day's fishing but it was worth it.
|I don't know why he didn't catch a fish...|
|Too bad this one got off|
Hope you're as lucky,
|Always fun to get out!|
