Went For a Boat Ride
« on: April 24, 2012, 09:31:43 PM »
Or at least thats what Dale calls it.  He convinced me that going fishing was more important than cleaning the house this weekend, so off we went.  On Saturday, we went to Cavan where i got off to a great start, and at one point was ahead by a 7-3 count.  By the time we had to get back to town, the fish had really turned on and Dale ended up edging me 11 fish to 10.  The wind was calm and the day was beautiful, warm and sunny.  I didn't want to leave, but we had to go watch the kids play ball hockey.

Sunday was cool with a strong breeze blowing, but I wanted to go try our luck at Bullshead.  This time I showed Dale how it's done by outfishing him 9-4.  That did not include the 15 or so that we lost and didnt get anywhere near the boat.  We didn't manage to catch any of the big fish that make that lake so much fun, but it was ok.  We only stayed for an hour and a half or so as the weather was just poor and I had lots of work to do at home anyway.

Now I don't know what happened with these pictures.  I am blaming Dale for this.  You know how men are with technology.  ;D  Sorry they aren't the best.

Very nice fish!  My wife would be jealous.  So far she's only caught pan-fry sized rainbows.  Although she got a nice bully at Lundbreck in the Fall.

I cleaned up the photos a little bit.  Love to see the colours on the bows.

  Your camera's ISO was set at 3200.  Way to high for outdoor pictures.  Even at the 1/1000 shutter speed, it was too sensitive.   Should always use the lowest ISO according to lighting conditions.  For sunny outdoors you can go right down to ISO 80.  Or to make it easier, you can set it to "auto".

Hope this helps.

thanks for the help dave.  i just got that camera last year and have never really learned about all the settings on it.  i should do that someday.  robin toyed with it some and helped me to get pics of some beauty whitetails last year on the edge of darkness.  i was getting nothing until she started fiddling with it. 

when we are on the water i always just turn it on and snap a pic.  ive never had one turn out poor like these in good daylight.  i kinda thought it was on auto, unless i bumped something.  oh well, we will catch lots more over the summer im sure.
