Fishing Fun!!

I know you have all been waiting to see who caught the biggest one last weekend. Well, from this first picture, you may be thinking Ben. Look at the size of that fish. It's huge!! We call those fish footballs. But I'm afraid to say that you are wrong if you thought Ben.

I'm not actually sure who's fish that Zac is holding here. It may be his catch but it's still not the winner (even if it is as big as him!).

Here's Jacob...did he win? Let's take a look at his catch...

Although he caught a beautiful fish....Just look at it's shape and form. I would have to say that if we were judging on looks alone he may be the winner but with fishing it's all about the size. So I'm sorry to say that no, it wasn't Jacob this time.

So now we are to Luke. Look how in this picture he's got perfect form in his "reeling" abilities. This boy is a natural when it comes to outdoor activities. He makes his Grandpa proud. I think he was a born fisherman. But we're not here to talk about his reeling abilities, we're here to talk about his catching abilities......

Look at this size of this guy!!

Yes, if you picked Luke (which non of you actually said him) then you picked the winner. Grandpa said that it was probably at 12 pounder!! I don't know how long is was but you can tell from the picture above that it came up to his chest. It's in our freezer right now waiting to be eaten. I will BBQ it soon. I just have to figure out a good way to cook it, I'm open to suggestions from all you cooks out there.

OK, so I figured that I could tell you the story behind the "big catch" but it's never as good coming from someone who wasn't even there. So here, from the fisherman himself....

After a long afternoon on the boat you have to go throw some rocks to finish off the day.



They had so much fun that day!!

Thanks Grandpa for taking us fishing on your new boat!

Love the video. Can't wait to take Avery fishing, oh wait, we already have lol. Can't wait until she can fish herself though. So much fun to be had there! I bet Grandpa is really proud.

My parents were here when we looked at these and my dad can't wait to post pictures of his grandaughter when she can fish too...he wishes she was big enough already! He is working on my mom right now to get a bigger boat, for Sage. He was wondering what kind of boat Uncle Mike got...he looks skinny!! Love you guys

Hey, you forgot Grandma. I caught one too.  I'm just not in the pictures because I was taking all the pictures.  Mine wasn't as big as Lukes though--or it wasn't first like Ben's.
