Fishing for fun and Outdoor Wednesday!!

A Wednesday full of beautiful outdoor spaces, hosted by Susan from http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/ .
This past weekend brought unexpected guests. Naturally, with the weather being letter perfect we headed down to the lake. You can see our Murphy dog found it a bit cooler underneath the shelter house. He certainly wasn't going to miss out on the fun.
Mr. P's nephew and son get started by putting some lures and live bait on their lines.
Our grandson Bailey is studying the tackle box deciding which lure he should use.
His eyes are telling me he thinks he likes the looks of this one.. lol
Trenton comes over to make a change of lures.
After dumping the water out of the paddle boat, the 3 of them load up and venture onto the water. I believe the weight is all on one side..lol
Off they go..
Bailey is studying the water so intently, almost willing the fish to jump onto his line..

My little guys smile is priceless. He is having a great time hanging out with the guys.
Mr. P. brought Miss Scooter down as well. She wanted out of the truck so badly. But was a good girl and sat still long enough for me to take a few shots of her.
It's almost like she is saying, "sure looks like they are having fun out there. "
"Oh Mom, can I please go?"

Even though the temperatures were great, the sun did get a bit on the hot side. The guys come into shore to grab some bottled water.

Trenton climbs a shore..
Bailey decides to stay ashore with me, and Doug and Trenton venture back out once again.

After many hours of fishing, late evening finally proved to be the best time. Trenton caught this beauty of a catfish.

I hope you enjoyed your day out with us. We enjoyed having you stop by. Be sure to treat yourselves by swinging by Susan's for a full list of participant's. Susan thanks again for hosting another fun filled Wednesday... hugs ~lynne~

Lynne, that looks like a whole lot of fun! I wish I had been with you... I love to fish! However, I like to fish with a worm and a cane pole. That's about my speed.

Loved your collie (or is that a sheltie?) under cover! Smart dog!

Love to you and Happy OW...
