The girl can fish..

As some of you know my oldest daughter Kadie spends the summer working at a fishing resort in Ketchikan.
Well naturally or not She spends her free time fishing. After all she is at one of the best fishing resorts in the world..Why not take advantage of the situation.
The other day she went out with some of the guys she works with, they hadn't had much luck getting anything worth keeping, then Kadie got a bite and she started hauling in her catch. The boys were calling her a sissy because she was struggling with the fish but once she got that sucker on the boat they changed there toon. when the relised she had out fished them all by pulling in the biggest Halibut.


It was just a mere 44lbs  and nearly as big as her..
She also caught a ling cod weighing 38 lbs...
I am not a fisher women but I do have to say I am pretty impressed with my daughters catch..
I know my Grandpa Cole is smiling down on her from heaven saying with pride thats my great grand daughter! Then in his next breath he would be telling someone the story of when I was 12 and went fishing with him and I almost stepped on a rattle snake, I had never seen my skinny old grandpa move so fast. he must have throne down his pole aimed the pistol as to not shoot me and shot it right befor it could strike my leg and bite me.
He loved telling that story..
Yet he would never share just how scared he was when he heard that snake and realised I was about to step on it..
I think he was a little scared to tell my Mom and Dad what had happened when we got home..
I rember him saying Bonnie(my mom) would never forgive me if I let something happened to you.
I am so glad he was watching over his silly prissy city  girl granddaughter.
So i know he cant help but be proud of his great granddaughter who loves to hunt and fish..

wow those are some big fish!

and that story of your grandpa brought tears to my eyes! ( I never knew my grandfathers - one died when I was 3 and the other died when I was 10, but had been mentally deteriorating for many year prior to his death.)
