Saturday Afternoon Fishin'

We've had some really pretty weather lately.  Sunny and mid-60s.  Plus my father-in-law is down from Washington State so what better reason to go fishin' on a Saturday afternoon.  (Well, that's what the husband says!)  We headed out to the tank.

The guys got all set up ready to catch the big one!

I let the dogs come.  And Diesel was intrigued with the bobbers.

Most of his toys are balls so why wouldn't he want the bobbers, right!?  Well, he managed to get the husband's and get all tangled in the line.

Before the husband went ballistic, I took Diesel back to the house.  He had had loads of fun running around the tank full blast, splashin' in the water and tormenting the fisherman.

When I got back, the husband had caught the big one!

And Harley took his position in front of FIL waiting for the next fish.  Harley LOVES to fish.

Pepper, on the other hand, could care less.  She just wanted me to throw her ball.

I think we all had a good time.

A nice sunshiny day - shirt weather! It does look a bit relaxing and those dogs -- don't they have such character!

Now 'thats' the way to spend a Saturday afternoon! Except the bobber chasing and line-tangling of course...
Awww- the best days are sometimes the simplest ones, aren't they?
And that photo of Harley waitin'on the FIL to catch a fish is absolutely precious!

Splashing dog - fish biting the hook - not something that really goes together.
BTW, how was hubby's fish - did ya'll split that 3 ways ;-)?

This must be inlaws week! I was trying to convince mine to go fishing this morning, then I read this post right after. Love the "big one" lol, y'all fish like we do :)
I'm jealous of your weather. It's pouring rain here today, not so good for fishing...

My idea of fishing is laying out on the boat while someone else does all the work! Looks like your crew had a good time. Your dogs crack me up!
