Fishing at Piney Run Park

Yesterday, our dad took Dink and me fishing at a park a ways from us called Piney Run Park, in Carroll County, Maryland. We borrowed a canoe from a friend and paddled out to various places, using lures of varying descriptions, baited hooks, and a special kind of artificial trout bait that my dad had.

We caught a few things… some seaweed, a few leaves, and a 3 inch bluegill.

We also saw a beaver. We got close to it to try to get a picture, but it slapped its tail against the water and went under.

So we didn’t catch anything, but it was still nice being in a boat. We hope to go fishing at other locations and hopefully have better luck. We’re also looking to get a trolling motor so that we won’t have to row so much.

Anyway, it was fun, and the area looked pretty nice so we took some pictures.

As we were leaving, we saw a few guys fishing on a pier, not even on a boat. They caught about 5 fish in just a few minutes while we were watching. A lady told us they were using chicken livers.

To see them catching those fish was slightly discouraging, but we did learn that using chicken livers might be a good idea for our next trip!
