Fish and Chips for Dinner!
Sitting in the rain, which at some points was driving horizontal, eating chips, waiting for the fish to bite. To top it off, all the clouds were in the way of the great views of the mountains. Everything was just gray.
Ok, we've had enough of this. No fish + rain = unsuccessful fishing trip. Let's go home.
As Murphy's Law would predict, as soon as we were back in the car driving down the road the clouds parted, the sun came out and we could see the mountains in the rearview mirror.
Ice fishing - Take 2. Following Sunday (aka today).
Actually this fish was caught the second time Mark put a line in this hole. First he drilled a hole right into the sand, there was no water. So he drilled this second hole with damaged blades, and it took a lot longer than normal. But stubborn Mark was determined to finish this hole. Then he put a line in (also a stick with line and hook and shrimp bait). A few minutes later Mark asked if I had moved his pole. I hadn't, but it was gone. All that was left was a snow print. So there is a fish swimming around under the ice, dragging a pole with jingle bells.
But now I must go because our fish and chips are cooked and dinner is to be served.
