This is how my weekend started... Friday night @mrsbozz and I went out to eat with my best friend and his wife. We picked our favorite place that is just down the road from our house so we could come back and have some beverages on our deck.

It was the first chance we have really gotten to try out our lights and I have to say, I am really happy with the way they turned out. It provided the perfect ambiance for a nice evening hanging out with friends. My friend mentioned he was going fishing on Saturday morning and the next thing I know, @mrsbozz was begging for him to take me along!

My friends uncle has a cabin on this lake. We have tried to ice fish on it a couple of times with pretty miserable success.

It is a relatively small lake compared to many of the other ones in the state of Michigan. Much of the lake is also very shallow with the occasional big hole here and there. It was around and hour drive to the lake and then we had to get the pontoon ready. That was a pretty quick process and before I knew it, we were on the lake.

As you can see, I got so much done on Saturday morning! :)

We actually had a lot of success fishing catching many small fish that we just threw back. In the end, we caught about five "keepers". It really wasn't enough to take the time to clean them, so we just let them go when we pulled back into the dock.

Here is Mike holding up the haul! To be fair I only caught one of the five keepers, the other four were snagged by him while I was trying to get the attention of a pike.

Our success was limited to two species of fish, one of them being a pumpkinseed sunfish like this.

The second species was the ever feisty bluegill:

It really was a great morning. I was even home in time to spend the afternoon with @mrsbozz. In a couple of weeks we are going to go fishing again. That will probably be a whole day affair. We are heading to a bigger lake so we will hopefully get a much bigger haul!

It was very peaceful even though someone was mowing their lawn and someone else was working in their deck.

That lake looks really nice! I'm glad you caught a couple keepers at least, even if you threw them back :)

Thanks! It actually is one of the "ickier" lakes I have been on, but it is close and we have free access to it. Plus there was no one else on it!

It really doesn't show on those pictures :D

Is like the making for a great weekend, glad you got a few that you could have kept even if you didnt, just being out on the lake must have been quite relaxing

Thanks for this great post and being an active member of @steemusa !tip

It really was! This was my first fishing trip of the Summer and it reminded me of how much I enjoy it!

Thats greta I hope the next full day one is even better :)

The water looks so still and calm. What a nice day! And when you say the fish was THIS BIG, you've got photographic evidence on the blockchain. :-)

That's true! I was going to photoshop an image of the Statue of Liberty next to the fish to make it look huge! :)

Fish have lovely colours, well done on the catch and release loads of fun. Perhaps the next run will find some keepers for dinner going on bigger water.

Sundeck next to the lake must be a magical place to entertain, sounds like you chuffed with your efforts, another job completed with success to enjoy for years to come.

Thank you! Yes, I hope we get a ton of keepers on our next trip. I would be over the moon!

Looks like a great place. I used to go fishing when I was young, but not been in a long while. Would you normally eat those fish? Are they tasty?

Yes, if we had caught a couple more we probably would have fileted and fried them.
