The day after all 3 of my guys got skunked in the fishing department, they had a fantastic catch! Andrew had figured out the best place (where the Hamilton branch outlet meets the the lake) and time (right before/during/after sunset). I took a bunch of pix, and had such a hard time deciding which ones to post, so I didn’t; I’m gonna share them all!!!!
First off, I was able to get some pix of one of the bald eagles that have a nest across from the cabin:
Stirling was an awesome boat dog, he loves the boat!
Logan then caught the first fish (a small mouth bass) of the evening:
It did a lot of flipping about!
Both boys were definitely having fun, which is what hubby’s been hoping for, but everybody want to catch a BIIIIIG one! So the fishing continued as the light dwindled.
And then…Logan gets another bite!
And it’s a BIG bass!
But whatever it is, it was BIG!
It was 24″ long, and 4.5 pounds!!!
We had to look this fish up the next day – it’s a really old species called a “Sacramento pikeminnow”.
It was a great evening fishing! Success!!
