Cure All!

Fresh air....beautiful scenery....catching fish....just what the Dr. ordered...



Oh so relaxing. I think we fished around every tree.



Look at the size of this beauty. I wish I knew how old it is.




The cypress knees are everywhere and the fish love them.




We caught several around this stump, and hubby didn't fail to catch a big one out of the hollow trees (I just lost my bait in them) ha




We got home in time to clean these and heat the fish cooker before a small shower started....small, I said, but better than nothing.



My daddy always said "A day spent fishing, is an extra day added to your life". I think I have to agree with him. I love it!

My Daddy used to love to fish ---but he seldom caught anything. He would go on weekends with his buddies down on the Cherokee Lake. When he did come home with some trout, they were delicious --although the basement STUNK for days.... ha ha

Glad you had a good day... Where did you go to see marshy country like this??? Looks like Louisiana to me.
Hugs,

Beautiful scenery, much like ours! I grew up fishing, too, with my Dad and brother and still love it. Glad you had a great day and a little shower!

These great lakes are about 15 - 20 miles from our house....Henry Gray Hurricane Lake WMA. Famous for duck, deer hunting and fishing.

Glad you had a fun excursion...and that a sprinkle or two fell in your neck of the woods. =)

Beautiful scenery, Nanny!

My Daddy also loved to fish and he loved when "the blues were running" in the ocean. My husband caught 4 big blue fish last week and we've been eating fish since..lol..thank goodness the boat crew cleaned them for us.
