Steelhead fishing

This last Saturday I went with my Father-in-Law, Chuck, fishing on the Clearwater. Chuck’s Twin Brothers and one of their kids also came. Instead of going on the boat we fished off the bank. Which actually wasn’t too bad. I didn’t have any luck, but the Chuck and his Brother Jerry did. They each caught 1. I didn’t even have a bite!! So Frustrating, but I had a good time. It’s really relaxing for me. Listening to Chuck’s twin Brothers bicker really makes me laugh too.

On a good note, I was able to wear my new bib-overalls that B.Maree got me for Christmas, they worked really nice, kept me nice and warm!

Here are the pictures.

Beautiful Morning on the Clearwater

Me, catching….well, nothing…


Bait shrimp, Beer, and Cigars

Camping 7/15-7/18

Well, some friends from the hospital wanted to go camping, so I invited them up to the hideout for a few days.

The trip actually started the day before when Britt and I went out to mow the grass and check on the hammock stands we built during the last trip up there. Well, The posts were loose. so I repacked dirt in while Britt worked her butt off mowing the ever expanding plot of grass. Well, even after, we were a little unsure of whether the posts would hold our weight. so we decided to anchor them.

So before Zac, Conner, and I went out on Monday, I went hunting for parts. I got some cable from my grandpa Dennis. some old water pipe for the anchor, and some more eye-bolts and clamps to hold the wire. and it worked like a dream!

and with that, the hammock project was a complete success!

I even slept in it after a crazy thunder storm that my grandma later said was the worst she’d seen in some years…and I stayed dry!

Then after a long and HOT hike, I made some fish from my previous post.

I actually think I prefer sleeping in a hammock over a tent, it’s a little weird to get used to at first, but man is it a good sleep. Probably the best camping sleep I’ve had. go buy one!

Until next time.

Beers, Cigars, and Fish.

So, this may sound crazy, but Ive never fished off of a boat before. So when B.Maree’s dad invited me along for a day of fishing, I jumped at the chance to go.

Our morning was to start pretty early, so Chuck wanted me to just come stay the night at his house, so I cooked them some dinner.

MMMMMMmmmmm Teriyaki Chicken!

After a beautiful dinner of Teriyaki chicken, my coleslaw (a fusion of my dad’s and grandma’s) and some rice, I went to bed nice and full. Chuck and I were up and out of the house by 4am.

The drive to Dent Bridge was a lot longer than I expected, but we had the boat in the water by 5:30am. And No kidding, within 30 seconds of having his line in the water, Chuck caught one. It took me a few hours to get my first of the day, but ended with an OK count of 6, while Chuck caught his limit (25), I obviously have a long ways to go!

Here are some pictures from the trip!

Kokanee Beverage, and Kokanee Fish… 🙂 great pairing.
