Fishing is not Catching

Today started early when we left home about 6:00 AM to go fishing. Jacob and Eric got out of bed and were dressed on time. We were headed to Jenks Lake in the San Bernardino Forest. The sky was clear and the fragrance of the pine trees was sitting in the air was a nice change from the city. It was a nice day and I was lucky enough to catch a fish. The boys were patient. They also tried what they thought would work. However there was not a lot of action so there was a lot of fishing and not much catching. On the way back down the hill, we grabbed a couple of geocahches. One was at the Ranger Station on the way out of the forest and it was called Ranger Smith. The other was at the A&W where we stopped for lunch and was called Rootbeer Float.

Total cost for the one fish in the refrigerator is, $41.20 for the fishing license, $16.00 for breakfast on the way to the lake, $21.00 for lunch on the way from the lake, and a few gallons gas to get there and back. It got the kids out of the house and away from electronic distractions. It was fun and I would do it again, priceless.
