Dinner Cruise, Country Style


This evening my wife & I went for one of our summer evening Dinner Cruises.

Our dinner cruises begin with latching the boat trailer on behind the truck, stocking the cooler with sodas, water and ice. A stop along the way to pick up a pair of subs (know as hoagies around these parts) at Harr’s Grocery & Flea Market completes the preparations.

As we motor across the lake I typically wolf down my sub so I can begin fishing upon reaching the western shore but my sweet wife eats in a much more relaxed fashion relishing every bite of her tasty $3.50 12” sandwich.





A nice bass like this is reason enough for me to hurry my dinner

Thank you all for your wonderful comments on my red dragonfly. I do believe you all pegged it. The male Calico Pennant looks to be a good match.

God. You made me laugh outloud and it is way too early to do that. My wife shouted, "Are you OK?"

The way you wrote this post is magic. Your wife about to bite the hoagie and you with the biggest bass I have seen for a long time. It is just a magical post for me.

Salty: Nice bass, it's so much fun to make a nice catch.

Salty: Thought these were two posts, the wife looks like she is enjoying the sub and that is a great price. What a fun dinner trip and someone to take pictures.

Are there mosquistos? I they are not plentiful, I can't think of anything more fun than a dinner cruise with my spouse. As for the sandwiches? To each his own!

While that's a fine looking bass, Salty, I'd much rather eat my hoagie like your wife....slow and easy. And leave the fishing to you.

What a beautiful catch. That's a real keeper.
Love your dinner cruise and hogies for 3.50 is the best deal around. Nice post and nice pictures of both of you.

Very cool post.

That $3.50 sub is better than Subway's "$5.00 foot longs"!

$3.50 is how much a foot long should always be.

Great pictures... What a great way to spend an evening now and then.. You sure got a good catch there Salty..... and the fish is not bad as well ;O)

Carletta said...

Ah, what a lovely idea!

I'm not much into fishing but even I know that was a great catch!

Nice catch!!

Misty Dawn said...

Great catch! I'm female, yet I'd be the one rushing through my dinner so I could be fishing! In fact, I'd probably be fishing WHILE I ate my dinner ;-)
