Summertime.....





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.....

I miss fishing with my father, gone nearly two and a half years now.
As usual, I don't give a shit about anything Kardashian.

My husband spent many a day out fishing with his father. Now my son can't wait to fish with Grandpa - and I can't wait to photograph the three of them together on the boat! :) Enjoy your fine son and the beauty that is Michigan!
