Why are these little girls smiling? Could it be because reeling in a fish, and actually landing him, will do that to you? No doubt about it! Ava and Addisyn had a blast catching some perch and rock bass this past weekend at the cabin.
The girls cousin Kyle was out in a boat with his mom and dad, but the girls caught more fish from the bank. Addy got the “biggest” fish award with her 9″ perch, and Ava caught 5 rock bass.
The weather was great, and the scenery was awesome. We were hoping to hear, and see, the Loons again, but the activity on the lake had them hiding. My wife was disappointed, but just as we were getting ready to leave the true call of the northwoods drifted across the calm waters. The serenade of the elusive Loon reminded us that we were just visitors to this remote part of Northern Michigan.
I tried to get the girls to “kiss” and release their first fish, but they had to see me do it first. Well knucklehead “Papa” put a “smooch” on a perch, but the girls refused to follow. In fact later that evening they wouldn’t kiss me good night, because my lips had touched a fishes lips! How yucky is that?
