Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame, Hayward, Wisconsin

"Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame", Hayward, Wisconsin. i am not a fisherwoman, but i have always been amazed by folks who do fish. all the hard work you do to make those stats. i must say i would prefer to see all these fish in the sea. not on the wall like this ...but what can you do? have you ever seen any of these fish alive before? this salmon above is so cool!!

did i mention that the hubby had a speed boat when we 1st started dating. it was awesome. but i always thought it needed to go FASTER. i love a fast boat. then the goober sold the thing. i miss it big time. he got rid of it because we didn't use it enough. kind of hard when you don't live near any BIG bodys of water. guess we need to move. he loved all the boat motors at this place. i now own a huge SD card of boat motors, what??! yep, i do. any one else in the world who can say that, can YOU say the same thing???!!!??!!!!

do you love to fish? Beth ( :

nope can't same the same thing :-)...I grew up with fishermen, spent a lot of time hating that I did, wish I hadn't cuz now I find those reels cool.

my hubby has always been and avid fisherman, he prefers deep sea fishing but not on the big head boats, he likes going with just 3 or 4 people... i have had several talks with him about catch and release fishing and about i know it hurts those big fish.. fish for food if you need it is my motto... not for fun. hubby would love this museum and has caught many of the fish on the wall. i was NOT with him

Just had some sockeye on the dinner plate a few days ago. Probably couldn't have caught it myself if I had tried. :-)

Hi Beth, I have never enjoyed fishing --but my Daddy loved it. He and his buddies would take a weekend trip on occasion to fish. I also have 2 sons who enjoy fishing. My youngest especially (and his wife) love to go fishing... SO--the love for fishing is definitely "in" the family.

I'm not a fisherman, but this does look like an interesting museum. I can honestly say that I don't have an SD card full of boat motors, but don't ask about waterfalls.

You hit an museum of fishing related items that must have been very exciting to you. A display of reels and especially all those motors would be very interesting to me.

That is an entirely different place to get a view from! Terrific shots.

I'm not into fishing myself- or eating seafood- but I wouldn't mind paying a visit here.

Are you still love fishing. We used to have a motorboat. When I was very little I used to fish off the side of the dock.squid, and a hook on the end of the string. I caught lots of interesting things. The men used to take the fish off for me.
Ruth Hiebert said…
Those outdoor fish are quite interesting and HUGE.
Missy George said…
That was supposed to be..."I used to love fishing"..I dictate my comments and forget to check them sometimes..It's amazing sometimes what they think I say..
Gail Dixon said…
You visit the most interesting places. I have never seen a sockeye salmon before. Very cool!

I have a brother-in-law that would enjoy seeing this place. He lives on the mighty Miramichi River here in NB - one of the best salmon fishing rivers in the world.

Point Lookout State Park, Maryland & area lighthouses

Where we stayed: Point Lookout State Park, Maryland

Fort Lincoln, located within Point Lookout State Park. The only original part that is still at the location is the white barrier wall, all buildings are new, I guess the weather and winds are rough on fort. 

Here is a vlog from that day of the sunset view from the state park & a coastline view from Fort Lincoln. I can so see why the fort was so in needs of repair, the winds there are so violent.

I will say that Maryland has pretty tough lighthouses to get to up close, usually you can get better shots, instead of through fences and all that jazz, but at least you can sort of see them? RIGHT??! Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Enjoy these views. Plan a trip soon, such a gorgeous area of Maryland. Beth  ( :

Grayson Highlands State Park & VA Creep Trail, Virginia

I was going to do 2 separate posts for this camping trip but it was only very quick weekend trip back in July of this year. Enjoy the vlogs from that day. We had a ball, such a great trip!!
1st part was our hike on Wilburn Ridge. 2nd day was our bike trip on the VA Creeper Trail. I think one of the most uncomfortable parts of the trip is riding in a huge van with people you have not a clue who they are... you just know that you are going to all be riding the trail. They van you up the mtn & you bike back to Damascus, VA. It is a 17 mile bike trip. Very easy. Not too much work at all.
One of our favorite state parks to camp at in VA is "Grayson Highlands State Park". We love this area 'cause you have the opportunity to bike the "Virginia Creeper Trail". Yes, we did make another hike adventure to "Wilburn Ridge". If you click each those names it will take you to our previous trip back in 2015. We took this trip in July of this year. What we love ab…
