Dad and I went fishing today! It was really fun. We were gonna leave early this morning, but it started raining late last night and when I wok up at 6:30am was still going. We gave it till 8am, and then decided to just go later in the day/evening. We left for the lake (we ended up on Eagle Lake I think) around 2-ish, got fishing liscences, and went a fishing! We don't have a boat, we have a canoe, and it took me all of 30 seconds to remember that canoes scare me. Especially when it's windy and the water is more choppy, like it was today. But we didn't tip over. Mainly stuck to the shoreline around lily pads and reeds that broke the waves nicely. I caught like 7 or 8 fish total. A sunny or two, two bass, a blue gill, and a few of something else I can't remember right now.
I got over my irrational fear of the canoe, and had a great time. Dad caught a lot more fish than I did, but it's all good. He's got that whole jig lure thing down a lot better than I do.
