Early this morning we headed to Cold Springs Trout Farm to have a fun spring day! Yes, it was cold and we had our winter gear on to keep us nice and warm!
First catch of the day…and no fear from him at all!
Mommy helping hold the pole!
I got this guys….I can do it myself!
See I got him right in the bucket…first try!
Let’s try it again…….
Look at all those fish…let’s stay here all day!
We made some very good memories today. And I’m sure we made our Grandpa Great very proud.
Cold Springs Trout Farm offers a chance to come and fish WITHOUT having to buy a license, bring our own gear, or bait our hooks. They charge you per the size of fish that you catch with the average price being about $4.50 per fish. That includes gutting, cleaning and filleting the fish for you!!! We brought home 6 very nice fish all filleted and ready for Grandma to cook!
Of course, after dinner we had to fly the helicopter (our latest obsession)!
