Anyway, Will got to the lake later in the afternoon and barely had time to change clothes before McIver was on the dock with all of his fishing gear. Even though it was late in the day, it was still too hot to be sitting on the dock, so we all ended up in the water. Will rigged the fishing rod in the pontoon boat, just in case. You see where this is going, right!?
About 15 minutes later (plenty of time that I had forgotten all about the fishing), we were still hanging out in the water when we heard a strange scraping noise. Something had gotten McIver's hook and was just about to pull the rod off the boat and into the water. Will got out of the water faster than I've ever seen and caught the rod before it either broke or was dragged into the water. After fighting the fish for a while, he finally got a glimpse and said I might want to go get my camera.
I don't think Mac could have reeled it in on his own.
He was huge ... Will said maybe 25 lbs.
Mac and his catch of the day.
And, finally, another sunset cruise.
