A Fathers Day for Fishin’ & Relaxifyin’

Sunday was ‘Fathers Day’ and Fred & Gloria had plans to take us to their ‘Little Piece of Heaven. We were going to be fishin’, grillin’ & relaxifyin’. The property is owned by Fred’s ex-brother-in-law and he spends his summers here, winterin’ in South Carolina. We will be fishin’ in a 7 acre pond with bass, crappie, bluegill, sunfish &  carp. The great thing, Private Property, No License Required!

We arrived around noon and commenced to relaxifyin’, some of faster than others.


It wasn’t too long and we were plying the depths of the water searchin’ fer out targeted prey for the day, ‘The Crappie’! Fred was the first to land a fish, seemed like seconds after he casted.


Followed by yours truly with my Lunker Bass fer’ the day.


Shortly after the Crappie started to hit, everyone was gettin’ in on the action and had a turn catchin’ fish. All in all we caught 3 bass, two bluegill and twenty five crappie, that yours truly spent the better part of two hours filletin’. 


All the fish were returned to the pond with the exception of the yummy, tasty crappie. Those will be dinner tomorrow night as these folks have never et these! At one point I thought I’d never get ahead on the cleanin’ of fish cause Linda was catchin’ much faster than I could clean. The fish would bite good while the sun was out bright, then shut down when it got cloudy. So much fer’ relaxifyin’, but I had a great time fishin’ and spendin’ the day with the family.

In amongst the action  my youngins’ and grand youngins’ had all called to wish me a “Happy Fathers Day’. That was very nice of them.

We had some grilled hot dogs & hamburgers to round out the day and when I looked at my watch it was almost 7 PM. I was tired and ready to call it a day along with everyone else. So we packed up and were off, back to our 8x14 rollin’ home fer’ the next 4 months. At times we both wish we had the 5ver here with us but we’ve existed in this box fer’ month’s before and we’ll survive.

That’s about all the news I can squeeze out fer’ this post. We’ll be here till Thursday mornin’ if all goes accordin’ to plans, but you know how that can change when you don’t have schedules & deadlines.

Hope to see ya down the road as we’re;

Dancin’ on the Wind.
