Went Fishin’

Today, the Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend 2013, members of the Wagner Family who were available to go fishing – went. We sure had a great time! We fished the waters of  the Elkhorn River as well as an Elkhorn River oxbow pond in western Sarpy County, NE that a buddy of mine owns. Thanks Mark! The oxbow pond looked like a picturesque postcard this afternoon.

The river was beautiful as well.

One of my objectives was to take my owns kids out for some fun to wet lines. There’s my Son Zach age 25 and my Daughter Emma who is 19.

They had a great time! My kids are attracted to water like a magnet and prove that you are never too old to get your feet wet and explore any aquatic environment!

Another one of my objectives was to include my buddy Andre’s young daughter Isabelle in our fishing outing and to continue the process of  helping her to make memories and get hooked on the tradition of fishing! I think we are succeeding, don’t you?

I challenge you take some time out of your busy schedules and go fishing with family and friends this summer! After all, it’s never just about fishin’ now, is it? Just ask Isabelle. To get all the information you need to know to go fishing in Nebraska, click this link:

My Daughter Emma says that you’ll be glad you did!

Zach, time to go home. I see the smirk. I know, I know, just one more cast, right?
