fishing with kids

took some of the kids fishing this morning. the kids all drove the boat, we caught a few bass but the fun really started after mason copped an attitude and i had to throw him in the lake. from there on out it was all about jumping off the poling platform. connor didnt make it in any of the pics because he fished out of vinces boat. best two fish of the day were caught by father and son (vince and henry), a nice pair of 5 pounders.

kissimmee prefish

vince and i went to kissimmee this morning to do a bit of prefishing. we found fish and we found good fish. the problem is that we found them everywhere we went and caught them on everything we threw. just one of those days. so much for narrowing down a pattern.

fishing and poker

fishing and poker. can there be a better combination? went out with walt to the same brush piles as yesterday. the first two fish came on both of our second casts. walt a 7 lb 11 ounce and mine a 5 pounder. we went on to catch about 25 bass most in the 3 to 5 pound range. what an awesome lake! afterwards we got a call from scotty with an invite to play a little poker with he and the lane boys.

big bass on brush

went fishing this evening with vince and lyle. caught some really nice bass including an 8, a 6.5, a 5, and a 4.5. it was nice having a scale on board to keep vince honest. lyle was kind enough to catch bait for us as pictured. then dinner at vinces house where monica made some awesome pasta. Thanks monica for taking pity on a couple of guys whos wives are out of town.
