Another dinner in the freezer!

OK - Update on the "homemade" minnow trap.....


Fried some fish the other night that Rich and Nick had caught about a week ago in my new deep fryer that I got for Xmas.  It was very very good.  But we liked the coating that Al and Barb used much better, so Barb is ordering a case for us to share.  Now we just need to fill the freezer!

Yesterday was a beautiful day. In the 70's, low humidity and just a light breeze. Absolutely perfect for fishing!

We headed out about 1:30 and fished for close to 3 1/2 hours.

OK - No BIG one to brag about, or to claim that 'got away'!

We caught a total of 14 fish (3 crappie, 2 bluegill and 9 shell crackers).  Two were pretty small so Rich put them back.  But it was definitely enough to replenish our supply for at least one more meal.   Rich rigs the poles with two hooks, and for the second time I caught two fish at the same time on the same pole!  I know, where's the picture to prove it.

But it was a beautiful, fun day and Rich got to use his new fish station and above demonstrates his skills at perfectly filleting our catch.
