Mr. RedneckHillbillies and the Little Kidlet have gone for a few years now and always do well between the ticket draws and catch prizes.
This was the first year that I tagged along for the experience. Let me start off by saying that I have not fished since I was about kneehigh to a grasshopper. Ten, to be exact. So I was just happy to be out on the boat on the water, and learn how to cast the stupid fishing rod without tangling it all up. Once I got the hang of it, I got some much needed practice tying and retying and untying multiple different types of spoons and lures, bobbers and floats, and skewering wiggly worms on the end of a rusty hook.
The Mr. caught a beautiful trout which wriggled free before I could snap a photo. Sad, since that was the very first catch on the boat. Anyhow, with that first fish, the boat has been christened now, and the skunked curse has been lifted! :D
I snapped a few photos while there, some for our own photo CDs, and others for Zazzle.
Here's a couple items I put together this past week.

a bunch of smelly fish
and I still might try to work with a couple shots of boats and anchors later this week.
(oh, and btw - we didn't catch a single pike minnow which was the target fish. BUT the kids tickets both won us prizes. We ended up with two rods and reels, two salmon society reusuable shopping bags, a t-shirt, a pack of hockey cards, and a 10$ gift certificate to a steakhouse restaurant!)
