A fisherman is born!

After dragging BB from the arms of MelanieWelanie, We headed off to Highlandtown Lake. Highlandtown Lake is where MW, and myself spent quite a bit of our time growing up. Grandparents would scoop us up take us fishing for the evening and top the night off, a trip to the Valley Drive In. The Drive In, has the best Ice Cream in the area. There was no such thing as alcohol based hand sanitizer, nor was there a place to wash your hands between the lake and the drive in. How did we ever survive, HAHA!

This day was a memory in reverse. Sportsman for years have been running an ad campaign for years "Take A Kid Fishing". It was a great time, I believe BB had a good time as well. There is nothing like a stringer of fish to make your day.

At the end of our fishing trip, I did skip the tradition of the Valley Drive In. I do have good reason though, the wife and kids weren't with me. Maybe we will all just meet up out there one night for ice cream.

FYI: No fish were harmed on this outing, catch and release fishing method was utilized.

It was better than saying catching him as she shoved him out the door.
