Saturday night the girls went to spend the night with my mom so Adam and Doug went fishing. It was a great chance for them to hang out and be guys together and for Adam to try out the rods he got for his birthday. Here they are casting and waiting for a bite. Adam did get bored at first and went swimming in the pool in between bites.But then this really big fish took a worm and almost pulled the rod off the pier.
a huge channel catfish, Adam caught, this was a pretty good sized fish, Adam could not pull him out of the water by himself, he was very excited and had to let it go himself- we catch and release here,most of the time-.
after rebaiting they threw the lines back in to see what else might be biting this evening.
baby rock fish, or small-mouth bass as they are called as well. Adam and Doug actually caught several of these, there must have been a small school of them swimming by us.
