First day of school usually means fishing for Mom!

The kids went back to school today, and I try to make this a day that I get to start my fall fishing. So I went to Godfrey's Pond and was not disappointed.
The first hour was spent with me rowing the boat and casting, and casting, and casting. I finally decided to take a picture because at this point with no bites, I needed to do something productive on my day out.
I took one pictures, as it's quite overcast today.
I decided to do some more casting and retrieving, and it paid off nicely!!!
I landed this 17 inch Largemouth bass. A fat and healthy looking fish, at that!
And then, on the next cast... I caught a chunky little Northern Pike. Can't tell in the picture... but it wasn't starving, by any means.
And finally, I landed another, smaller Bass.
And this was how I spent my kid's first day back at school. :)
