Nilla Wafers and Carp

Ben was determined to catch THE "big one" when we went to the marina tonight to fish. We fished with minnows with only a few nibbles and nothing to show.

What started as feeding the ducks every available snack that we brought with us, turned into a quest to catch the big carp that follow the web-feet to catch a snack, as well.

We were down to Nilla Wafers, heavy line on a treble, and a few moments til it was time to go home. Well my determined boy (for those of you who know him, he is very determined) wanted to catch one of those stinky ole, bottom-feeders. And he did !

With a Nilla Wafer !

We couldn't send him on his way without a name. Chloe wanted to take him home, but Mr. B put an end to that. What did we named him? You guessed it......his name is "Mike" !

Ben wish I could have been there to see you catch that fish. You are so patient with your fishing.
