Gone Fishin'

So, I've been a bit negligent when it comes to updating my blog. I was doing so good, and now I'm all behind. Oh well...life happens, and when it does...we just roll with it! :) So, without further ado...let me play catch-up.

Caleb, Brian, and my dad (Granddaddy) all got up early on Saturday, the 20th, to go fishing. Caleb has been bugging Granddaddy to take him fishing for some time now, so this was the day. They had to get up at 5am in order to get ready and be at my parent's house at 6am. You see...my dad wanted to go in the afternoon. But smart in the arse sweet little Caleb informed Granddaddy that the best time to go fishing is first thing in the morning when the fish are hungry. So, off they went!

Well, lo and behold...they were super sucessful. Caleb caught the first fish...a catfish. It happened to also be the biggest catch of the day. In total they caught 12 fish...1 catfish and a bunch of brim. But -- considering they were only out there 2-2.5 hours they did GREAT! Granddaddy was impressed with both Caleb and Brian. You see...city slicker Brian actually got his hands dirty and handled the chicken liver (bait) and the fish. This impressed my dad...LOL!

Once they were done, they took the fish back to my parent's house. Caleb wanted to keep them, but my dad convinced him that he'd just plant them as fertilizer. Since Caleb was a tad bit upset that he couldn't eat his catfish, Granddaddy was nice enough to bring us all a nice lunch of catfish, fries, and hushpuppies from a Captain Jack's Crab Shack. This excited Caleb to no end, and he LOVED the catfish. Brian enjoyed it, too. Me...not so much...not much of a fish eater.

Here are some pics from the fishing trip. Caleb is eager to go again!

Sorry this is blurry...Caleb busy eating breakfast.

See the time...5:24am

He is so proud...he caught a catfish.

Glad he had such a great time! I, too, caught a catfish the first time I went fishing. Unfortunately, no one told me how ugly catfish were before I went fishing. Once the fish was reeled in enough to see, I screamed and threw the fish and my pole back in the water and ran away from the pond! It wouldn't have been so bad if I hadn't been 20 when this happened!
