First Boat Trip Of The Year
The family and I got to go to Chatfield State Park for about seven hours today. We packed a lunch and the fishing poles. It was our first chance to try out the new pontoon boat. The day started out in the low 40s with a slight wind. As the day went on, it warmed up and the wind died down. My wife caught the first two fish of the day and I caught the only other one, all while trolling lead core. It wasn't the most productive fishing day we've had, but it was nice to get out and enjoy the outdoors and be on the water for a few hours. As with most fishing trips with little kids, I spent a lot of time trying to fix tangled messes. Hopefullywe can get back out before too long. I'm already looking forward to catching more fish!
