Free Fishing Weekend

This past weekend was Free Fishing Weekend here in Colorado. So my family decided to head up to Manitou Lake for a day full of fun, lots of laughs, sunburns, great company, some food, and lots of fishing!

Now this post is going to be a little different then my normal post. I'm going to do this post in an awards style fashion. Here goes!

Award for the most fish caught:
My big brother Brent. At the end of the day with all of the ones that he kept and threw back, he probably caught about 12.

Award for Biggest Fish of the Day:
ME!!! That's right! I have bragging rights for the next year!

Award for Best Temper Tantrum:
My little sister Rachelle! She was having such a hard time getting her fish on to the shore. The first five fish she caught all jumped off the line before she was able to get them on the shore. She was getting so pissed off. It was quite funny. She finally got one towards the end of the day!

Award for Best Freak Out Moment:
The besty, Lacey! When she caught her fish, she didn't want to touch it. It was hilarious and cute at the same time. 

Award for the Cutest Nieces Ever:
Well, duh!! MaKenzi and Kelsi! 

The Award for Best Sunburn:
My brother Brent hands down!! When he took off his shirt, it looked like he still had it on, haha!

Award for the Best Aha Moment:
This one goes to me! My brother was so busy setting up everyone else's poles that when he got the chance he just got his pole in the water. Well, he was using a lure while the rest of us were using power bait. Well, he was the only one catching fish and so I finally said screw it and switched to a lure and within the first three or four casts, I had my first fish! I'm a genius, haha! Not really, just made an observation.

I'm sure that I could come up with more, but right now I am suffering from writers block. We had such a great time though and I hope that we can do it again soon. The best part of the whole day was when we got to go home and clean the fish and then grill them. I cleaned my own fish for the first time ever and it actually wasn't that bad. Then we grilled them and they were DELICIOUS!! It was an awesome day with awesome family and friends and I can't wait to do it again!!
