The Catfish Queen and King

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!

I drove the boat!

Good morning fishies!

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.

My healthy snack and breakfast on the boat!

Day Date at the Islands

We started the day with a boat ride down the Huron river. Lake Erie was really rough but the weather was amazing. We decided to go have lunch and shop in Port Clinton and Marblehead. After we were finished we returned to the boat. The lake was still kind of rough. John would have fished but it made me nervous so we returned to the dock. He of course still fished from the parked boat 😂 and of course caught a fish! Overall it was an amazing day!!!!

Love my dirty hooker fishing clothes!
Obviously this should be my boat
My lunch date is gorgeous
Ok who is buying me this????
Always anchor your bike!
Love antiques

Days off on the water are the best!

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!

Fishing with the boys!

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!

A day at the lake restores the soul!

The boys set off early this morning to go walleye fishing. The river was still rolling like the ocean and it was cluttered with trees. At one point under the bridge, the river became somewhat of a whirlpool. But never fear, the boys made it through and fished for hours on Lake Erie!

My mom and i stayed back at the house. I wasn’t feeling 100% and a day of relaxation sounded wonderful. My mom spent the morning baking cookies for my nieces birthday. Abby spent the day laying around and watching tv!

After i ate some toast i went for a walk to the beach. I brought my camera and attempted to find the boys on the water. I was unsuccessful but i did capture some beautiful photos.

Cedar Point
Huron, Ohio lighthouse

At this point in the morning i was starting to feel more human. I walked back to the house and decided to go for a morning walk. It was exactly what i needed. It was also getting really hot out but the scenery was so beautiful that i just wanted to keep walking. I passed several other women walking down lake road. I passed several bicyclist who looked like they were training for the Olympics. Seriously they always look so graceful riding at such a fast speed! I walked through some small lake communities and surprisingly they were pretty quiet. The marina parking lot was full of trucks and trailers, but the marina itself was pretty quiet also. I did see a family of Amish sitting outside by a fire enjoying some lunch together. We exchanged hellos and i was on my way back to the house.

Fish Fest

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.

Sunset/Sunrise Fishing

My niece, Cally, wanted to fish before the fireworks! My husband and brother set her rod up and she fished off the pier in Mitiwanga. It was a beautiful sunset and they were the perfect silhouettes in my photos! She didn’t catch anything but wow is she getting so good at casting. Super proud of her!

Did i really wake up at 4:45am to fish!? You bet i did because it was with my 3 favorite guys! It was a beautiful sunrise but i was focused on fishing. I caught a baby walleye and my dad caught a monster catfish. Man did that thing not want to get in the boat but my dad fought hard and won! I couldn’t believe how many fish were jumping at the top of the water. I felt like the boat was surrounded by dolphins!

We had lots of fun!!!!!
