Fishing

Not too bad a day, eh?

Hello everyone! Travis here. I like to take over the blog from time to time an post various things that don't involve adorable kids. Last weekend, 3 friends and myself took our 3rd annual fishing trip down to the thriving metropolis of Seadrift, TX. We went down on Saturday and fished through Monday. We got down late afternoon on Saturday and did some pond fishing at Grandpa's pond in Port Lavaca. We caught a lot of fish, but nothing too big. A cold front blew through Saturday night and we thought it was going to be rough fishing on Sunday as winds were forecasted at 15-20 mph. We woke up Sunday to beautiful skies and low winds. We took Grandpa Johnson's old boat "The Folly 5" that he gave to Ross and I and took it out to the bay. We were either lucky or good, but the first place we stopped we fished and caught fish all day there. We caught about 30 keepers.This is the first time we actually had a good trip when we guided ourselves so we were pretty happy about that.

Sunday night we went to Bayflats Lodge in Seadrift. They run a really nice operation and it is always fun to go there. We had a dinner of duck, baked potato, and salad with a dessert of cheesecake. Not exactly roughing it. We fished from 6 until 4:30 and caught our limit of reds and then some along with 23 keeper trout and a flounder. It was a lot of fun hanging with the guys. Thanks to Sarah for letting me go :)

How about a shout out for Gram and Pa Pa for keeping the kids!(It's such hard work!)

And a shout out for poor Uncle Ross who got to help get the boat cleaned up and was lucky enough to stay at home with a sick baby all weekend.
