My World # 43

This is my posting for the My World Meme. It is hosted by Klaus, Ivar, Sandy, Wren, Louise and myself. Won't you join in, I want to see where you live and thrive.

I took a trip to Lake Hodgson with the grandson. I took my better camera to see what we could capture while fishing. This Cormorant posed on a log.
Soccer Boy brought in this nice catfish but was afraid to hold it for the photo. He said he would take the photo. It was into the sun.
The sky was really neat over the lake.
There were not many people fishing but while shooting the gull I found another boat.
We had a neat time even without the fish biting.

Mmm... catfish fillets. Our new Fish & Game head is from Ohio--taking a lot of crap from the hook & bullet guys, stuff like, "Yeah, he considers rabbits and squirrels game animals." They'll get over it.

A wonderful bird in that first one. I see you live up to your username.

How wonderful to go fishing with your grandson. That catfish looks good enough to eat.

A nice day fishing at Lake Hodgson for sure. A good catch of the catfish.
Fishing is slow, very slow as temperatures are extremely hot here in British Columbia. Hottest we have seen in long time.
They are urging folks to stay out of the back country as much as possible as it as timber dry for fear of accidental fires starting or perhaps folks being caught in a wildfire. Forest fires here in BC are not good right now... sigh.
Take care.

Hi Tom;) I love all the wildlife captures. Do catfish bite? Just asking. I have six in my large pond but have not seen them since the beginning of winter (2 months now) They are very shy; my husband has a way of enticing them out so will wait until he returns to see them. Thanks for sharing this post. (((Hugs))) Jo (South Africa)

Obviously I have a thing for the top shot , the lovely reflection.

Pam said...

Well it looks like soccer boy did catch one at least. I guess that's why they call it fishing instead of catching... your just not gona get one every time you cast.
But you sure did capture some wonderful photos and great memories too :D

It's nice to be a part of another world, albeit virtually.

That was nice of the cormorant to give you a handsome, profile for the snapshot. Soccer boy doesn't practice fish-slapping, does he?

SandyCarlson said...

Love that shot of the cormorant. That's a gorgeous lake. Glad you had some luck!

Craver Vii said...

Fish slapping. It's from Monte Python's Flying Circus. (whack)

Looks like a great day on the water. I wouldn't have wanted to hold that big catfish either!
