We took the family to a fish fry this weekend and we had a great time. Gavin was determined to catch a large mouth bass. He fished all afternoon with no luck. Mikayla caught a small Blue Gill and Jana caught a small frog (in a cup). It was getting close to dinner and our hosts had started cleaning the fish. I took Jana and a fishing rod to the other side of the lake and just thru out a cast. I reeled in my line and just as my lure got to the edge my hook caught on something. It made my pole bent in half and then it started wiggling all over the place. I pulled in a 2.5 pound large mouth bass. It was the largest catch of the day. After showing it off I turned it over to be cleaned and tried again. After my second cast I caught another but smaller Large mouth bass, still worthy of eating. 15 min. Later, still in the same lucky fishing spot, I caught my 3rd fish. It was too small to eat but I was up on Gavin 3-0. After dinner Gavin finally caught a tiny fish that he released and then caught this one. (it is about the same size as my 2nd fish, the smaller one). It really was a fun day of fishing for the whole family.
