We went fishing yesterday, looking for some decent smallmouth and got in front of some.  This was his first smallmouth of the year, and his personal best.  He was very happy. 

I have a rule on the boat of "landing nets not allowed" which spices things up, and after several drag pulling runs at the boat, with 6 lb line, he said he had to close his eyes and look away when I reached out to lip the fish for him.

It was a lot of fun for both of us and you can tell by his smile he was a happy camper.

If it wont roll, its not a log; its still a piece of tree.  Sawmills cut logs, not pieces of trees.

My Dad will push walleye to the side and take the northern pike. They are tasty, especially out of cold water.

Not me, I'm not much of a freshwater fish eater, except crappie, the odd catfish and sauger.  I pretty much let everything go its merry way.  

We stock our freezer up with saltwater fish, such as snapper and grouper.

Bass season doesn't open in NY until June 15th!

No law against catching them early, just can't keep them!

My Son In Law spent his youth on the lake with his father.  They're still at it every chance they get.   They came in 9th in a tournament that qualified them for something coming up in Missouri.

This time of year is fresh brook trout and fiddle heads. But haven't fished in years, still eating fiddle heads though. :D

It was time to empty out the overwintered cold compost to till into a new garden bed and start hot composting, so i set out rescuing what seems like 80 or 100 crawlers.  Boy comes home and starts naming them.  All bob.  Bob jr.  Bob the 3rd.  Bob the 8th.   ;D


Yeah a few of em are gonna bob alright.  On a number 6 lazer sharp.

I know most of us like big fish but I caught this Northern Studfish today at the peak of his mating colors and wanted to share what can be found swimming around in a neighborhood stream if you stop and look closely.

Daughter petting her Catfish, which is a daily activity.  They seem to understand each other.
