    Family Tiger Trip

    Saturday was a really nice day, so my family and I got out of town. We went to a spot that ended up requiring a bit of a hike to access and it was really good to bend the legs. My 3 year old girl did a great job of keeping up with us and my boy insisted on leading the way, like usual.

    It wasn't until we'd reached a secluded spot on the far side of the lake before I realized that I'd forgotten my camera in the truck, but luckily Sonia brought our old one along.

    The fish weren't too cooperative, but they rarely are at that lake. My wife and I both ended up with only a couple of fish each, plus a couple that didn't quite make it to shore.

    I scored first with a new lure that I'm trying out, a Live Target swim bait.



    A lot of fish followed it, only to turn at the last moment. That happens a lot out there though.

    Sonia was throwing a rainbow Vibrax for awhile, but couldn't get anything to do more than investigate. Then I tied on a black marabou for her and she nailed a 21" tiger within a few casts.



    After that, I missed a really good one, then brought in a nicely colored male of 21" on the fly rod.







    Great bronze on that one, especially for this time of year.

    So it wasn't super fast action, but it was worth the hike and drive time to get it done. The kids liked running wild and we enjoyed our catches.

    Happy Fishing, Humans.
