Thanks a lot for a great weekend with the kids, Coloradomrg! I am rarely the "camper," but we really had a good time this past weekend. In fact, the kids were having so much fun back at the campsite, we didn't even chase the cats into the night. For probably the first time in my life, I stopped to breathe and let my little man enjoy some time with another creative and passionate little guy and we had fun. So much fun in fact, we stayed 2 more nights and just returned.
Aside from a few short runs on the "big baits" that I like to throw (tiger, cats or pike), that was about it. A real big bass broke me off at the inlet area to Martin. I threw a worm out and when we checked the slack line it was wrapped around 3 logs. I got it free from 2 of them and saw it stuck to the third. I ran to get the net but it snapped before I could return. Oh, well... What an awesome park!
Last night, we threw our total of 3 trout in the fish basket and cooked trout, corn and some yams in foil on the fire. I cuddled with my kids under the stars of southern Colorado and they told me they had a "good time with daddy." Sometimes, I really have to pull my head out my a$$ and put the kids first. Too many long windy days at the Mile... As usual, my daughter took the biggest trout... :).
Thanks Coloradomrg! I will email you to figure out how to drop off the few items of yours that we still have. That was a heck of pike your son landed!
