Today was gorgeous. It was 50° and sunny. Not your typical weather for the end of December in Cleveland Ohio. We of course decided we needed to spend the day outside. After our morning workout we headed to Huron. The public boat launch looked like a summer afternoon! We fished on the pier with our friend, Gene. I was super excited to use my brand new wagon that john got me for Christmas! My dad was doing important year end stuff for work, but during his break they brought Abby for a walk and joined us!!! I was able to take photos while the boys tended to the rods in the lake. I also made lots of four legged friends. We ended up with 2 perch just over 11” each. While John was bleeding out the fish, he also bled himself out 🙄. Thank goodness he married a nanny whose mother is a nurse. We cleaned with some water, put a bandaid on it and then wrapped it with a clean sock! He was good as new, at least enough to get us home. Overall excellent day spent with friends and family.
Another day fishing with my guys! We set out for walleye but the catfish like me more. We caught white bass, baby walleyes and catfish. We had one keeper walleye but we had a lot of activity. Not once but twice we had a Folino fire drill. John was netting a fish for my dad and boom i hooked a fish. We were both reeling in and John had to double net us. It was fun and we laughed a lot. Of course this would have been more exciting if we were doubling up on walleye but catfish put up an exciting fight!
This morning we woke up before the roosters to get in some fishing before the hot sun arrived. It was absolutely beautiful and peaceful. We had a lot of action and some good fights. We also caught some extremely small fish which gave us all a good laugh. Fishing with my dad and my husband is always enjoyable.
The virus is in full swing again and the world can sometimes seems scary. We now have family and a friend with the Covid virus. The adults have been vaccinated but the children have not. This virus does not care. It’s been a year and we are back where we started.
But this time we have a boat and I’m so grateful for that. The three of us our vaccinated. We can be care free for a few hours and that is priceless.
Stay safe and healthy everyone. Pray for those fighting the virus.
There is nothing better then small lake towns. Well ok there might be some better things, but to me this is my happiness. I love having Lake Erie right in my backyard. I love the calmness and uniqueness of these small towns that line the coast. In the summer the streets are lined with tourist and locals enjoying restaurants, bars, festivals and of course the lake. In the winter it is quiet and peaceful. Small town America is my happiness. I am and always be just a small town girl and i finally met my small town guy! Today we enjoyed Huron, Ohio from the water!
John and i both had a day off from work and we took full advantage of the gorgeous weather. We picked up my father in law and headed to the boat. We spent a few hours trolling for walleye. The baby walleye sure came out to play but the keepers were hiding. We did manage to catch a few to bring home for dinner. A day on the boat is always the best day no matter how many fish we catch!
The lake brings a sense of calm to my life. Whether I’m on land, on a boat, swimming or laying on the beach, i am at peace!
These first few photos i took from my parents house in Huron. I am so blessed to have access to this gorgeous area!
The next few photos i took while on the boat fishing. There was a poker run passing through Huron and heading to Put-In-Bay. It was really neat to see all the fancy and colorful cigarette boats. It was also very exciting to see the film crew in the helicopter chasing and hovering over them!
Saturday was absolutely gorgeous out on Lake Erie. My dad, husband and i set out to fish for perch. They were not biting so we decided to troll for walleye. We were much more successful with that.
We’ve made it a tradition that the boys need to eat a Payday when fishing. Actually we believe the fish don’t start biting until the payday has been bit into!
In the Huron river they are dredging out near the pier. Kind of fun and interesting to watch!
Today my husband, father and i set out to catch some walleye. Mission completed! I w caught 8 and kept 4! The weather was absolutely perfect. I could sit on the water all day. It’s so peaceful and stress free.
Today i also brought my cameras and captured some photos on our ride out. The Huron river is so beautiful and surrounded by cute bars and restaurants. We saw all kinds of water craft vessels from kayaks to large yachts. It’s a good mix of local people and vacationers.
