Here Fishie Fishie Fishie!

While we were in New York, we went on a fishing trip to Black Lake for a week. Me contemplating the wonders of the universe.

Black Lake is about 20 minutes from Canada near Odgensburg. It is beautiful country, known for good fishing. We stayed in a cute little cabin:

Here we are on the cabin's porch. Michael (Matt's brother) is on the left, and his mom is on the right.

And down below is Matt and Amelia outside with a spectacular view.

The weather in New York was beautiful. Very humid, but much cooler than back home.

Heading out to the boat to fish.


Here we are on the Party Barge! WooEEE! So fun. Take note of Matt's signature Bill Dance polarized fishing shades. Watch out fish!
Our captain.

And a few of our catches:Amelia caught this fish all by herself! She reeled it in and everything before anyone noticed. "Help! Look! I caught a big, spiky fish!"
She caught quite a few. What a cute little angler.

Mike caught a 20" Northern Pike! He caught dozens more fish than any of us, hands down. Here he is with 2 fish on 1 line. A sunny and a perch. He put us all to shame.

And here below (cough) is my (ahem) fish:

Marion also came with us. She's a friend of the family that used to go to the same branch. Here she is with Amelia.
She told us that this is her "dream home":
Where would you park?

We saw lots of cool things. Like this:

What the heck is this thing? We saw it frequently circling the lake.

Here's Amelia with another fish:

What a fun, fun trip. Thanks Mom and Mike!
