It was really humid this week, but the weather broke in time for Grandpa's visit and gave us a perfect summer day for fishing. There's a little pond in our subdivision, a few lots down from us, where we often see people (including our GC) fish. He says there are some big bass in there and we really should take the kids. I finally called the owner today to see if he would mind. "Have fun", he said... and did we ever!
The pond is a beautiful spot, and Shimmer and Shine each caught and released at least five really nice bluegills a piece. Grandpa spied a 14-15 inch bass in the pond and tried his luck before we left. He snagged it, BUT it broke his line! Fixed the line and then caught and released a smaller large-mouth bass before we packed it in for the day.
Days like this I'm in awe of the beauty God surrounds us with... I love our new hometown.
