"THEY ARE BACK ....

.... we got to go outside. Whoop-de-doo." - Lucky"Aww - we missed you all immensely Clucker! We also had a good time. BL got the biggest fish! A 5# 20 inch small-mouth bass. On a No. 8 hook and worm - which is REAL small! We measured it and let it go - the lake NEEDS it!"
"We caught 135 fish (mostly small blue gills - 5 of us fishing off and on) and ate them ALL!"
"My Dad is 92 + and here he is getting snuggled by BL while driving his pontoon boat "The Kermudgeon" - which was our fishing platform!"
"Us on the Lake Michigan beach at Empire - a favorite place."
"We had a fun time and are glad to be back home. Maybe some more pix on a later post. Will catch up on all the blogs soon." (@Karen - we saw the Schooners but spent most of our time a bit south of TC on Silver Lake in my brother's place and fishing from The Kermudgeon. Another brother lives near Interlochen, Big Sis lives across the street from Bryant Park, and little Sis lives near the Bay a bit north of Elk Rapids. Dad lives in what I think is called Bay Meadows just off Silver Lake Rd. Wonderful weather.)
(PS - A HUGE Thanks to FOTA (RenoRabbits) for wonderful bunny care.)
