Headed out on our lake after dinner to do some fishing - first time this year. The bass were biting and Dylan and Jody both hauled in some big ones. Catch and release on the lake so that they will be there for the next fisherman. We came across a Hooded Merganser with her 7 little babies on the far side of the lake - we did steer clear of her because she was a little protective of her brood. And we saw the loon as well. And no sign of the beaver - which is a very good thing!!
