Here on Lake Champlain Father's Day Weekend means FISHING!
Each year there is a fishing derby on the lake. Mr Nook has been fishing this derby for about 15 years now. Looking to earn 1st place in the lake trout category.
Sunday we headed out late in the morning, Saturday was to rough to fish.
The little fish pin on Mr. Nook's hat is his father's day gift. Figgy and I found this pin at the Mother's Day antique and craft show we went to (you can see that post here.)
The pin is carved from a deer antler and hand painted, it is a salmon (he loved it!)
This is a new toy, shows many different things, if there are fish down there, the water temperature, the speed of the boat for trolling purposes and much more. All these things are considered while trying to win the competition. Mr. Nook is a hoarder of things, too. His hoarding costs a little more than my hoarding though.... This is just a very small sampling of lures, eye candy for a fisherman I guess. I don't get it, only one lure is going to catch that one winning fish.
The Plattsburgh Ferry boat.
See this pole bent over? Well, we wait for this pole to stand up straight, that means FISH ON!!!
This is Mr. Nook.
He sure does love to fish.
Some other fathers out trying to win the #1 fish.
This is what the cutty looks like. We could sleep down here but as you can see this would not happen while out fishing, no room for that.
