Saturday and Sunday, Bulldog Man and I headed out early to catch some trout to place in our freezer. The wind picked up a bit on Saturday. so we only stayed out at the pond a couple of hours and caught only 2 trout.
On the way home, we stopped off at Bass Pro Shop in Oklahoma City and found a couple of really light fishing rods with reels at a great price. These rods will be great rods for fishing trout, bass, and crappie. Bulldog Man and I decided to try the new rods at the pond on Sunday.
Sunday morning at 5:30 AM, we arrived at the pond and setup our gear. Dropping our fishing lines in the water, we sat back in our comfy camping chairs, enjoying a nice hot cup of coffee, while watching the moon disappear through the clouds, and the sun appear over the horizon, waiting for a fish to bite. As the sun blessed us with her shine, a pair of beavers swims across in front of us, heading toward the other side of the pond. Geese fly in, landing in the water, while ducks float along the shoreline looking for food, and a medium-sized turtle swims under our fishing lines, and occasionally pops his head up to let us know he’s there.
Sunday afternoon we brought home 5 more trout to add to our freezer stash for meals later on. Okay ………. Bulldog Man wants me to note he caught the fish. I’ll let him take the credit, he earned it :-)
Besides, the best part about fishing, is spending time relaxing together, and enjoying the great outdoors.
