Kid's Ice Fishing Tournament

Saturday, January 29, 2011

Today was the annual kid's ice fishing tournament at Pottery Pond. We took the kids down and met up with Dan & Jacob. It was actually pretty decent out. Turner was crying before we even left the house, so this should have been a clue as to how much he was going to enjoy himself. But we got down there, Ben drilled us a bunch of holes, the kids got lucky lures, and we set up camp, literally. Ben borrowed his buddy's huge portable ice shack and put the kid's camp chairs and a heater in there for them. The horn blew and it was time to start fishing. We were hoping for the first fish..........well that didn't happen.......we never caught any! haha! Oh well, what can you do? The kids didn't care, they were too busy eating cookies, skating around on the ice, killing our minnows and filling our holes with snow balls. Ahhh, the joy of kids! We all had a good time, well maybe not the Big Turnski. I think he's used to his daddy's heated ice shack where they actually catch fish! But they walked away with a new bobber and a coupon for a free cheeseburger at McDonalds and they were happy with that. Until next year.......
