The plan was to meet at the new church at 9:45am. The guys, hauling the boat, took off together in the truck to put gas in the boat, while the girls rode together to Walmart to buy snacks for the day. I won't mention how us girls shop... yes, even if its in a Walmart Supercenter. We took a little too long and had our husbands calling us asking where we were. The first time we told them we were checking out (we were). The next time they called we said we were leaving the parking lot (... and we were). We even got one of our husbands to ask us, "can you see me? I'm waving." He thought we were at the grocery store across from the boarding ramp. We were dying laughing because we were still in another town altogether. Since we were supposed to be there, we simply avoided direct answers and strayed toward the vague yet true ones. LOL Whew! It was too funny when they found out later on.
Oh well. Sis Holly did manage to get a striped bass later on that day. Those were the only two fish we caught. According to Bro.Jeff's monitor, the fish were staying about 18 feet down due to the choppy surface.
HAHAHAHA!!! They wore denim and their skirts and his jeans had a really hard time drying out. They also stayed cold for a good while. It was pathetically funny!!! I'm sorry girls... I had to tell it!!
lol jk. No really, when the ramp was within view, we saw that it was swarming with boats and people for the competition and decided to drop off Bro.Ken on one of the banks and have him meet us at the other ramp with the truck. Us and our boat finally made it to the other ramp. Here's Jeremy walking up the dock.
What a great way to spend a maiden fishing voyage... with friends, sunshine and some good food to top it off (and a good camera to save the memories. =) )
