When I agreed a few months back to take on this little mission I am on, I expected to receive some good fellowship with my friend, and to see something new.
I found out last night about the icing on this cupcake, I was taken fishing!
We piled in the boat, and set off. Up the lake we went passing our cabin on the right.
We continued breathing the fresh moist air deeply into our lungs. Bouncing across the waves, at the speed of youth. Refreshing and invigorating after a hot day of gardening and landscaping.
Our guide slowed the boat and announced we were at the first good fishing hole. I jokingly asked him if it was the best one.
He showed me how to bait the jig with the frozen shiner, and I cast it out into the water. Started reelling back and bam there was a fish on my line. I pulled my first pickeral/walleye into the boat. The adrenaline corsed through me, I couldn’t believe it!
A couple minutes later, bam, the little lady fishing with us snagged a nice size pike on her Barbie rod.
We continued casting and reeling but not long after my rod quickly laid aside for this beautiful family appeared on the horizon. In awe I grabbed my camera and fired away.
We cast a few more times then moved up the water a bit more.
All of us in the boat pulled at least one fish, amazing. I ended up with three. This one was too little.
Too soon it was time to turn back. The sun was setting, the kids needed to be tucked in bed.
We headed back in, enjoying the ride, the speed and the setting sun.
Back at the dock, we admired our haul. As we dreamed of the sweet reward of the fish fry to come.
The Creator displayed His beautiful art display, and smiled upon our pleasure.
