One of my favourite pass times! Fall is my favourite time of year!
And there is no way to beat fresh pickerel esp when its cooked in the boat right after being caught!
With a hard to resist weather forecast, Erik decided to take a day off work so we could go fishing.
Megan decided to take the day off too and join us. The fishing wasn’t too great but the weather and scenery was beautiful and if was fun to have one of our girls with us for a whole day!!
We had a little friend greet us when we putting the boat into the lake. People must have been feeding him this summer because he sure wasn’t shy about coming close to us.
Moose Hunting season opens tomorrow morning, this hunting shack had been set up and left waiting for the weekend. I have a feeling that’s why the fox was hanging out. When we returned with the boat the door to the shack had been opened just enough for someone the size of a fox to get in.
I love my Birthday, I consider it a celebration of life……years ago I decided that one day just wasn’t enough. So Although my Birthday is at the end of June I always say it’s not over until Erik and I have gone fishing and camping in September and he has to grill a smokie for me on the campfire.
Well my birthday is officially over…..I guess
We enjoyed a spectacular weekend of perfect weather. Two nights with campfires both nights were warm with a clear sky.
Three days of fishing
We caught our limit of Lake Trout……..Yumm!
and then while Bass fishing I caught this (thankfully after 15 minutes of fighting with it Erik brought it in!) For those who don’t know it was a Pike (39” long and 14 lbs)
I love September fishing especially when we get great weather, I was also able to take a couple of swims……the weather has changed and we may only get a few warm days here and there before the cold air starts to settle in for the next several months.
Thank you Erik for another awesome Birthday Weekend!!!
