Fishin' trip on a 100F degree day

Discussion in 'Family Life - Stories, Pictures & Updates' started by Yard full o' rocks, Jul 26, 2010.

  1. Well.....we booked a trip with a guide for this past weekend to do a little striper fishin'. My entire bunch loves to fish!! In spite of the terribly hot weather, we did pretty well.

    Here is my wife Jennifer, with one of her fish



    Here is my youngest, Colby, and his first striper ever!



    And here is my oldest, Landon, with one of the fihe he caught


    I was "manning the camera" so the ones I caught weren't photo'd, but I did catch a fish tale!!

    Holy moses, look at the size of those fish! You won't have to tell any fish tales when you tell those stories.

    Beautiful family!

    We all survived the heat. I guess all that ice and changes of water did well for the hens and roo. The young ones seem to be taking it in stride.
    I caught a rat last night. It seems they leave after you catch one for awhile and then return. I have a long run attached to the coop with a covered area where I keep the feed. The rats come in through the run to the food. I can not prevent that without a couple of hundred dollars that won't happen for awhile. So for now the traps seem to be my only defense except poison outside.
    My vanilla trees's seem to help with coop smell and some with the fly problem here. It is terribly dry and humid right now. When will this heat ever break.
    Cyn. please be careful with the roof of your coop. We just got through redoing the top of one with tin. We had so many leaks on that area. Now no leaks yeah.
    Take care everyone. Oh, Scott the Dellies are really growing. I have on pullet rock and one male rock too. Thanks Gloria Jean

    Are those land-locked stripers?
  10. Quote:Sourland, yes, those are freshwater stripers, in one of the only lakes in the US in which they naturally reproduce
