City girl fishin'

Sunday, June 24, 2012

You wouldn't think this city girl loves the outdoors, but growing up in Michigan, I spent a lot of time fishing with my dad, camping, building forts in the woods in my backyard, and climbing the dunes on Lake Michigan.

I had a great evening fishing with my sister and Papa Chicago Prepster. He lives next to a small lake in Rockford, Michigan filled with bass, pike, and catfish. After a few impatient hours, I finally managed to snag a bass (I was very proud of myself, I thought I'd lost my fishing skills)! We were even treated to some fireworks being set off at the next lake over. Felt like the Fourth of July!

There's still a nature lover left in this city girl. Here are some photos from our relaxing night!

Happy Sunday!


Impatiently waiting for a bite!

Here's my trophy. He was too slippery and squirmy to hold (Papa Chicago Prepster to the rescue)!

Managed to snap a good photo before we set him free!
