Fishing at 6 Mile

While at my Papa Ted's house last month, we (the fam) decided to make our way down to Taledo Bend Lake for some good ole' fishing. We made sure to stop on the way to get Sophie-girl her very own fishing pole, which came with this cute-Disney Princess tackle box! And because Sophie is hard core, she let me fill it with fishing worms.
We drove down to 6 Mile, not to be confused with Eminem's 8 Mile, for our fishing fun. My grandma and grandpa own a Lake House at Toledo Bend, and were in town for the weekend, so they happily joined our fishing party.

DSC03128The fishing area we choose was beautiful, people free, and gave us great views.

And got our hooks (okay, just mine) caught in plant life. And waited. DSC03142DSC03143He's super happy and always optimistic. And seems to enjoy the waiting.

Fishing's a little discouraging when you catch nothing, huh? But we had a fun time together! And that's what matters, yes? Also, Sophie-girl mastered casting her Princess Rod. She's a natural. :) So, that was good! Do you like fishing?

Fishing is lots of sitting and waiting. :) What kind of underwater camera do you have? The photo of the fish was so neat!
