We went on our annual fishing trip Friday - this time bringing along Stepson #2. It was a beautiful day out on the water, sunny, 20 degrees so not too hot and the fish were biting. The Chinook fishery only opened 4 days prior for keeping 1 per person - but at the same time, the fishery department limited the maximum size for keeper fish at 80 cm. I managed to catch one that was 17 pounds and 79.5 cm :) It is the largest fish I've ever caught. It took 20 minutes to reel it in and my arms were numb afterwards. All three of us caught fish. For the privacy of my stepson I am not showing the family picture and only shots from the back of him and his dad.
We had hoped to catch some Coho, Rock Cod and Ling Cod but no luck - there is always next year. I happen to love this annual trip. While not inexpensive, it is worth it in enjoyment for my family plus I take the funds out of the "fun money" pot that comes from returned deposits on bottles, rebates, and selling household stuff we no longer need or reselling stuff.
It has turned hot here again, 26 degrees Celcius today and since I've been in the sun the last couple of days I am staying home today with Buddy. Hubby and Stepson#2 are going hiking up the mountain. I need a day of R&R as have a headache that keeps returning, maybe too much sun.
I am not sure when I will next post, thinking of taking a few weeks off blogging to just relax a bit. In the mean time enjoy your summer!
