Catch of a Lifetime


Yesterday, Shane got done with work a little early, so we decided to take our boat out and do a little fishing. We weren't out there too long, when I got a bite and started reeling it in. Right after I got my bite, Shane said he had one too. I grabbed the net to pull mine in the boat, and the whole time, Shane was yelling that his was HUGE! Once I got mine in the boat, I gave him the net to pull his in.........
He was right......it was HUGE!
It made mine, which was a little over a foot long, look like a wee little guy.
Shane was tinkling down both legs. He kept saying, "I need to call someone". So, after a few calls, we had to bring the boat in because both his dad and brother came to check out the fish.
After we went back out, Kennedi even got one.
.
Shane had a really hard time gutting his fish....he wanted to mount it, he said it was a catch of a lifetime, something you only see at Cabelas :-) It measured at 21 inches long. The rest of the night, he was sending a picture of it to everyone he knows.

Shanell,
I just found your blog from Bridget and Dustin's blog! I am so excited for you to be having a little boy. My boys (Gage & Gunner) are getting so big. They are almost 8 months and are already into everything. It looks like you guys are doing well. I'll have to tell Bryce about your blog. I have a link on my blog to their's.
Love, Morgan
