We got Ron a fishing license for Father’s Day. We spent the afternoon (on Father’s Day…yeah…I’m a little behind in my posting once again), fishing in a little spill off area of the Wapsipinicon River about a half an hour or so from home.
It was hot. We were expecting to catch some little bullheads. Which we did. But not before Ethan pulled in a 17-18 inch northern pike! As he was reeling it in, he said “Well! THAT’S not a little fish!
He was getting ready to try to touch it, to take it off the hook, when Ron said “Be careful! It has teeth!” That was the end of him trying to touch it!
LOVE the dimples on that kid! (Well…love the KID, too!)
It was a beautiful spot for fishing!
Kind of woody and weedy so things got tangled quite often. But it was still a good day of fishing!
This might be my favorite picture of the day
Although I kind of like this one, too
We did catch a few bullhead. Ethan thinks that, with their whiskers, they look like little Frenchmen!
What an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon!
