As far as my usual Monday post goes today ? ....I Don't Give a Shit!
But me and the boy DID go up to Au Gres this week-end to do a little
Angling. It was oppressively hot, but we did do OK. The fish in the first
pic is what the locals call a Sheepshead. They are also known as a Freashwater
Drum (Aplodinotus Grunniens) You can eat them, and they put up a terrific
fight, but they are boney and have a lot of guts, so we usually just toss them back.
Now the Cats? That's a different story! They put up a GREAT fight, and they are
delicious. They are ugly, and they will horn you with one of three sharp barbs if
you don't handle them properly. We also caught 9 Walleye that were of legal size.
They say that God adds a day to your life for every day fishing, so the rest of this
Summer me and Reese will be fishing as much as we can.....
