Fishing and Camping Trips This Summer

By Selina Hoit
I can't believe summer is winding down!  (uggh - that makes me sad!)
Sometimes we plan "big" summer trips but most of the time we just pick fun spots to go camping.  
So, here is a re-cap of some of the fun things we did!

This summer we fished a LOT! Although my husband doesn't fish much, my brother is a fish biologist and joined us on one of the trips. He taught me and my son how to tie a true fisherman's knot and get our poles all set up.  Fishing and Camping Trips This Summer
And then my awesome brother went on to teach my daughter how to clean the fish!

And I just sat in the hammock and relaxed - hee,hee.  OK until it was time to cook them. :-)

This was the boating/beach area of one of the places we stayed - it was so beautiful!

We had a blast renting paddle boards one day.  Just to let you know, you do NOT stand on it like a wakeboard, snowboard or skateboard - hahaha - you will fall head first.  Yes, I learned the hard way, just stand on it straight on, foot on each side.  ;-)

On any GREAT camping trip you have to have a good fish story - right?  
So here is mine :-)

I thought I was super cool because I caught this huge fish right in front of these guys that had been fishing all day and caught nothing.  
My fish biologist brother had already left the trip so I texted him telling him about my great catch (I'm in blue)

My "awesome" catch was a stinky uneatable SQUAWFISH! All my coolness immediately left - hahahahaha!  
All to say, we had a GREAT time and we were all EXHAUSTED at the end.
