We have this little retention pond behind our house... the locals like to call it a lake. Anyway... it is fully stocked and fishing is allowed from the shore... catch and release only. Andrew has a fishing pole and loves to fish. He is not however, very fond of touching them. Well this is what he caught today and he is so very proud...he reeled in this Bass all by himself. And just so that I don't get a ton so spam on animal cruelty ... no fish were harmed the the creating of this blog. You will be happy to know that the fish was released back into the pond and swam away unscathed.
