This book is full of exciting twists and turns that will keep you reading!"
Tina gives an overview of the book:
“Preparing to catch the big one!” As Chris ran down the old wobbly wooden dock to look for a container, he felt himself swaying as if he were on a boat. He stood still, closed his eyes and imagined that he was out in the middle of the lake standing on his very own boat!
“What on earth are you doing?” Robin asked as he tried to pass Chris on the dock.
“Shh…you’re going to rock the boat!”
“Oh, you’re crazy Chris -we’re not on a boat! You wish!”
“Yeah, I sure do wish we had a boat. We could be right out there in the middle- catching all those fish that keep jumping up.”
“I’m just glad we’re here. This place is the best,” Colin said as he walked across to the end of the old wooden dock. The afternoon sun was hot and the boys were ready for a challenge. A fishing experience that they would always remember- friends, good fishing and the challenge of catching the biggest catfish ever seen in their favorite vacation spot. The Poconos in Pennsylvania is where they would see mountains, explore caves, and fish in the fish filled lakes.
Chris wanted to explore the cliff over the lake before dawn.
“Come -on, let’s go up to the cave before it gets too dark to see.” He carried his tackle box up with him. Inside the box was his secret fishing bait. No-way was he going to leave it lying around unattended.
Robin threw down his pole and grabbed his fishing knife. “I’m ready for anything. Come on,” he said as he hurried up the hill. Colin followed behind as Chris stood at the top of the hill, motioning them to hurry. The view was amazing and as the three of them stood over the lake they pointed out the possible spots along the lake that they could catch “The big one.”
