My In-laws have a beautiful pond on their property full of fish, so we try to take advantage of it several times a year. Not that we eat fish (yuck!) but fishing is a great family activity. We mostly catch the little ones (blue gills and other assorted pan fish) but there are some larger bass that we will occasionally get lucky and catch. No luck with the bass on Sunday. We did have one tip-up flag and from what I've been told by our guide (my brother) it was a fish that was taking out line, but got away. Cue the game show loser music.
This was the last ice fishing day of the year for us, as the warm weather gods are shining upon us again, but on Sunday there was still 17 inches of ice on the pond. I fished and took pictures all day. It was beautiful and nobody complained about being cold!

Now here are some photos of what Binny was doing when she wasn't waiting for the fish to bite, which seems like an eternity to a 4 year old.
Shadow maybe should have found a better place to sit...
That's all I'm going to say about that.
Smallest fish of the day
Today is supposed to be gorgeous with a high of 67, so hopefully I can get some yard work done. Maybe even find the grill that's buried in my garage and make dinner outside tonight.
