Hi Guys,
Good to see you all doing well and catching fish!
I thought I'd share a few pics of this weekend's outing with my boys.  We went to a small local lake and spent the day fishing off the dock.  We had a blast!  The older boys are pretty self sufficient now and have more patience for targeting the larger fish.  The little boys just love dropping a piece of worm down and watching the little panfish fight over it.

We kept the two trout and cooked them on the grill.  Delicious!

I don't take a rod when I'm fishing with the little guys, too much action helping them to do any fishing, so I got the lone skunk.
Watching them have a blast and seeing their smiles more than makes up for it though!

Shout out to Wayne, Henry, and Sheridan!  Most of those fish were caught with gear you donated, thank you!

Tight lines!

Thanks, Chad —-

That is what it is all about.

Impressive in many levels.

Chad, it looks like that country fresh air really suits those growing boys. They sure look happy.      Rudy


Good looking bunch Chad, looks like life is agreeing with you up there. Doesn't get better than that!

 Hey Chad, good to hear from you. Great pics and nothing but smiles all around. Lots of good memories fishing the worm strait down to watch them minnows go after it.

 I have been burning candle at both ends and still have a box of tackle for you. Fishing will end in a few weeks and I'll get it shipped.

 Hope to pay you a visit someday.

Thanks guys, I do love being on a dock with my kids!
I miss shark fishing, so I'm going to do some research and start targeting pike in the spring.  Need to catch something with real teeth!

Our first hint of fall weather rolled in last night, so it's time to focus on hunting and hopefully get some meat in the freezer this year. 

We are really loving it up here and it's so great to see the kids thriving in this environment!

Ted, no worries and no rush!  Glad you're getting out on the boat and catching fish!  Would be great to see you up here one of these days!  No albacore, but we do have salmon!  Hope you connect with Wayne on his next trip here too!

Good times with the kids.    I can't wait till my Grandkids come for a visit again and will do the same.


I think I'm grinning just as much as they are.  Touches my heart! Thank you!!!!
