Happy Independence Day Everyone!!!
Today we got up at 5 a.m. and went fishing at Utah Lake. Why does the best fishing usually have to be right when the sun comes up? ;) It was such a fun day and we caught tons of fish. At least 3 or 4 each, more for some. Everyone had a great time.
When we got there we saw this big spider. I've never seen one like this before...anyone know what it is? It looks like it has little eggs all over it, or balls. Very different.
 I got a bite first but missed it. Then Levi got a bite and got in the first cat fish of the day.
 There it is in the water.
 He's so happy he caught the first one.
 Skylar was very excited to hold it.
 Kadin's turn.
 Reeling it in.
 He's more interested in the carp he sees rolling in the water.
 Kerby's turn, too bad I didn't get a picture of his poll weighed down.
 In fact I didn't get a picture of that fish at all and this is Fisher's first catch of the day, a bullhead cat fish.
 This is MY first catch. Wahoo!
 Fun times.
 Fisher and Kadin caught these at the same time.
 My crew.
 Fisher had just given the fish a kiss. GROSS!
 Fisher told Skylar to kiss the fish and she did. YUCK!
 My 3rd fish.
 Kerby's again.
 Ewe, that even splashed water in my face when it flopped around.
 The mighty fisherman!
 And....drum roll please. The biggest fish of the day goes! It was so big I had to brace the pole under my arm so I wouldn't drop the pole.
 Levi's netting the monster (OK so it's not a monster, they've all caught bigger other days).
 27 inches long
 7 lbs 10 oz.
 Man it's heavy!
As you can tell by my face!
 Fun times! Can I put it down now? My arms are tired.
 Fisher caught a white bass.

 I love this, it's flopping out of his hand.
 Very fun fishing trip. I really should go with them more often.
