 It was a great weekend....
the weather was good....
the company was good...
 Saturday morning Hubby and I got to the lake early...
we found a good spot....unloaded...set up...
unloaded the boat...put it in the water...
it was a little windy...but not too bad....
 went out in the boat...
we fished...tried several spots...not biting...
my Mom called to say she was headed our way...
we started heading back to our spot...
troll fishing as we went...Hubby caught a Crappie...
we thought we would turn around and do the run...
one more time...about that time...
the wind started blowing...I felt like I was in the ocean...
we headed in...by the time we got to shore...
the wind had doubled....
it was too windy to even fish on the shore....
so we packed everything back up...
boat included...which had to be carried up a steep hill...
then put into the back of the truck...
we decided to find another spot for our day...
we headed to the perch pond...ran into Mom on the way....
we found a picnic table...a good fishing spot...
we caught fish after fish...nothing really big...
I caught 3 catfish....
Mom caught a crawdad...Hubby caught 3 of them...
in the pond on worms...didn't know you could do that...
 
 It was an awesome day....
Sunday we got up bright and early.....headed to the lake...
this time Rooster got to come with us....
we found a good spot...Our daughter showed up first...
she brought Hatari with her...
 
 it wasn't windy....yeah...we were so happy....
we had a nice day....Hotrod had a blast...
he loved the water...it sure was cold....
but it didn't stop him at all...
I was the fishing Queen...I caught 4 fish...
no one else caught any....
 
Hatari found this snake...
a cotton mouth...very poisonous...
it was in some tall weeds by these rocks...
she was sniffing...I went over and looked...
didn't see anything...my daughter looked...
she saw the tail...Hubby got a stick...pulled it out...
that is when we found out what it was...
Hatari...my daughter and Me were very lucky...
the snake had already eaten something and it was still
trying to digest...or we could have been bitten...
Thank goodness all this happened before Hotrod came...
Hubby through it into the lake and it finally swam off...
besides that we had a great day....
Next post I will show you the Mother's Day gift from my daughter...
hint- fishing....bling....

Nice time, but scary there too. Snake! Yikes!

I'd never make it, in the great outdoors. -grin-

Sounds like you had a fun time, apart from the scary snake. Difficult to imagine what I would do (living in the UK) although we do have lots around our home in Italy. Do they swim in the water? - that would be really scary to think about!
Lovey shots of the wild life, fishing and fun for the family would make up for snakes, I guess.

Only right that you should have been the fishing queen on Mother's Day, Deb!! Yikes! Glad that snake was busy digesting his breakfast! blessings ~ tanna

This post reminded my of my younger days when we camped out on the river every weekend. You all had some fun and what better fun to have with family. Congrats sweet fishing lady! Sure glad you all found that snake and got it on its way and no one was bitten. Your pictures are amazing sweet Deb as always. Hugs

Debbie, I've missed so many posts, sounds like you've been busy, fishing, exploring and avoiding snakes. I love the pictures of your Mom!

I hate snakes and I'm glad your all okay. Other than that it sounds like a lovely day.
