Yahoo! My fishing adventure was a success!
Honestly, I mostly just enjoyed hanging out with my brother. We had 2 1/2 hours to troll Lake Wallula in the quiet-mucky-yucky-rainy-wet-grey day-weather. We had no bites all morning & were heading back in. Until.....my prize showed up.
It's funny 'cause I had just been talking to Andrew about how we should try some different bait. Particularly some ham-n-cheese sandwiches in the cooler. He just thought I was weird, but I was seriously gonna pull my pole in & loop some hammy goodness on that hook of mine.
I reeled & squealed & was as giddy as any fishing girl could be.
Oh, & I had to laugh at this: In my brother's wallet he showed me a pic with him & an 18 pound steelhead he caught last week---right next to the picture of his daughter. Isn't that hilarious?! I loved it.
So, here's my smelly catch! It's a 10 lb Chinook Salmon.
My brother said he was rather proud to see his sister catch a fish. (Awww....)
Ok. One more.
I loved fishing. I think I'm hooked. (har har har!)
