We went fishing yesterday. It was a really nice day. A beautiful 70 degrees and a light breeze. We got over to the pond about 3:30 pm. It was a pretty slow day as far as fishing went, so I had time to work on a beanie I am crocheting. David and I both had some pretty good bites on our big game fish poles baited with bluegill or perch for the catfish. David had one really good bite it bent his pole. I got up and was getting the net, when I turned around he had on a sad face. 😦 The fish had gotten off. We called it a day around 8:30 pm.
We did manage to catch some other fish. David caught a nice perch and I caught a nice bluegill both of which were brought home and cleaned. We are slowly getting enough to make a meal of fish, these will go with the catfish and trout David caught last trip.
As I sat fishing I noticed something black and white at the water’s edge across the pond from me. I thought it might be some sort of water fowl. I used full zoom on my camera, but I still couldn’t tell what it was. I did realize that it was not an animal as it never moved.
I did get a couple of nice shots of the sunset.
The first is a wide view behind my fishing pole.
The second is a close up of the cool pink and blue clouds.
And here is a lovely shot of the bluegill I caught and the perch David caught.
