SO after work the other day, Matt and i decided to go float down the Sacramento River for fun. So we grabbed our tubes and fishing poles and took off towards the river. We made it to the Sac in no time and 'launched'..Here's my cute hubby!
...and heres me right after we got in.
So ive decided that tubing while fishing is my new favorite thing! Floating down the river is so fun and relaxing and when you add fishing to the mix it equals perfection! As we were gliding along i heard loud splashing so i look over to see what it was and i saw 6 little heads poking out of the water! I thought they were beavers at first and was kinda uneasy because I heard they were vicious and didnt want to get attacked, but they turned out to be river otters! It was so cool to see those guys swimmin along and doing a little fishing themselves..those guys were too quick for me to take a pic tho..sorry! However i DO have a pic of one of the fish that i caught!
..its called a 'Shad'.
It was my first time catching a shad fish and it was exciting! Heres Matt lookin studly in his tube..
It took about an hour or so to float down to Scotty's..its a little BBQ place on the river where we ate some yummy burgers for dinner and i sang some kareoke in my fishing vest...a perfect ending to a perfect day on the river with my best friend!
