Fishin’ on the Dock

Have you ever heard the song Fishin’ In The Dark by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band?  It is a family favorite!  Love it.

We have our own version here at our house.  It’s Fishin’ On The Dock.  Get it?  Clever, right?  I know, I’m lame, but that’s nothing new.

We’ve made a bit of an aquarium right off our dock by sinking some things.  We feed them leftover food and fruit and vegetables.  Fishing in the aquarium is kind of a joke around here.  Sometimes you can pull up fish after fish, but sometimes you get nothing.   

This wasn’t one of those days.  Jackson managed to hook 2 fish that don’t live in the aquarium.  You’ll never guess what they used for bait?

The first one was a croaker.  Hank was there to inspect it.

Miller had to inspect as well.  He blocked my shot!

Seconds after this picture was taken, that fish flipped right out of his hand and into the water.

This was a big ‘un!  Some kind of Jack is what we found out.

  1. So glad the fishing pole is getting good use and who doesn't like Wendy's french fries.

  2. The boys are getting SO BIG! The "boy on dock with a rod and his dog" is very Norman Rockwell. :)
    I hope we can be in Waynesville or thereabouts sometime soon at the same time -- take the boys fly fishing!
