Fishing trip

Two weekends ago, we went to our church's youth conference and one of the activities planned is fishing. Mitch got his license and we got the kids their own poles. Everyone was excited about fishing. Unfortunately, the kids and Mitch weren't lucky to catch anything. 

Because it was kind of a sad experience,we decided to have a 'redo' of this activity in hopes that we will be more successful the second time around. Last Saturday, after I came home from an early morning photo shoot, we packed up our fishing tools/supplies, a packed lunch and some excited kids and headed to the mountains. Here are some photos of our excursion...

We went to a spot that our neighbor went to. When they visited this place earlier in the Summer they were very lucky and got a good amount of fish. We thought we'd give this a try since our neighbor has good luck here. It was a beautiful spot. The only thing that we didn't expect was how cold it was up there. We were dressed for warmer weather since the forecast down in the Springs was in the high 80s and early 90s. Note to self, weather up in the mountains is not the same as the one in the city.

For the first hour, we were not lucky. We were getting disappointed. Marcus was getting impatient and was asking me what time lunch would be, every two minutes. Plus it was getting cold and the kids and I were huddling together to warm up.

Thankfully after lunch time, the cloud moved away and the sun came out and Marcus got the first fish...

Maddie followed after that, getting the one and only rainbow trout of the day.

Mitch got some too.

After about an hour and a half, we caught 8...Marcus got 4, Mitch got 3 and Maddie caught one.

I had to be in photos so Mitch got this on our way back to our car. We carried our camp chairs in our back to and from the lake.

When we got home, Mitch cleaned the fishes and fried them outside. He has his own favorite recipe in cooking trout so I let him handle that.

and this was our dinner...fried trout with cornmeal crust, spanish rice, a little bit of refried beans and steamed veggies. It was definitely delicious. 
and since we caught 8, we can have this meal again this week. I love leftovers :)

Till next time,
