CATCH OF THE DAY

Our family always schedules a fishing trip during the days after Thanksgiving. Two of the young men who went along this year have birthdays during the last week of November so they received poles and tackle boxes in anticipation of the event.

They all usually go to a big icy lake north of here.

This year the fishing was superb.

Everyone in the group caught fish


and they came home with their limit early in the afternoon.



The fish they caught were rainbow trout ...



and brown trout.



The fillets from these big fish are pink in color and have a flavor near to cod and lighter than salmon.





I did not go along but stayed home with some of the ladies and babies. Thanks goes to Hubby and the dads for taking some of these photos and giving their time to share skills and make great memories.

Oh man, what a catch! Sure sad to have missed it. I feel like there is much that we have/will miss, but life goes on.

How great! We love fishing when we are at our cabin. Your photos and tales makes me want to go there again as soon as possible. We don't go often during winter though.
