Since it wont be long till the fishing winds down Dad and I decided to slip over to Smith Mountain Lake for a day of fishing. When we arrived it was beautiful. Big fluffy white clouds and warm weather.

We made our way down to the dam which is about 8 miles from the dock.

We fished for about 1 ½ hours before I noticed the sky getting dark back towards the dock. It wasn’t long before the thunder started to rumble and we started seeing a few flashes of lighting.

I convinced Dad that we ought to start heading back up the lake and it ended up being a smart decision. We just did make it back to the dock when all hell let loose. We had rain, sleet and a terrible lighting storm that went on for over an hour.

After all that we were treated to a nice double rainbow and then a beautiful sunset

The fishing wasn’t much good after the storm but we got up at the crack of dawn on Wednesday and had a great morning fishing. Caught 16 between us with 4 nice eating size keepers (limit of 2 per person per day) . When we went to load up the boat we discovered that the rain had washed so much sand and gravel into the loading ramp that we couldn’t load the boat. We ended up having to take the boat about two miles up the lake to another loading ramp to get it loaded. All in all another good trip with Dad and looks like we’re heading back again Sunday 
