Water Skiing 45:00 [3]

Visiting my grandpa in Massachusetts who lives on Lake Monomonac. I had a early start. Soon, we went out in our motor boat for a ski in with my whole family the main lake. I had a couple of simple runs with two skiis. My first one I just popped out right away I was surprised that I didn't forget how to ski, I hadn't been skiing here since July.
I had a couple of long runs speeding across the wake. It really tires out your arms since you've been up so long. Surprisingly this was a busy weekend, the lake was VERY crowdeed today LOTS of boats and kayaks were out on the water which made it hard to get up with all the extra wake pushing you around. So my mom and I decided not to try slalom skiing today.Maybe tomorrow, we'll see.

Fishing (water) 25:00 [0]

I had a early start, and surprisingly grandpa was up . So, after breakfast, we decided to go down on the dock to fish. Luckly, it was early, so the fish had some room in their bellies. We used stale hot dog buns which seemed to work fairly well. Everything was non-stop, I didn't even give grandpa a 15 seconds to spare. Either it was a fish, or a tangled line,
or something else. I caught about 5 STUPID fish that came right away. After that, the fish got a little smarter and it took a couple of minutes each to catch the next two. All and all I caught seven HUGE fish. I felt this was a succesful fishing day. I dumped them back. to maybe try another day to see if I could catch even MORE!
