Fishy fishy in the lake....

Decided that he liked my bait!

My fishy that I caught Sunday afternoon....

Didn't even realize I had something on the line... well I did, but I thought it was a weed... until it tried to escape under the boat. Then he started fighting. Fun fish to catch. My arthritis took my fun away and just as he was under the surface I couldn't reel anymore so the hubster had to grab the net and pull him in the rest of the way.

I love fishing. What kind was it and how long was it? I can't tell.

You are a brave soul. He might be good fried up in a pan with cornmeal and onions. Hmmmm?

My grandma used to roll fish in beer batter. It was delicious.

Thanks :)

Peach... it was 20 inches and the scale said 3 1/2 pounds, but we are thinking it was more than that (it was an old scale that hadn't been used in years). Hubby said it was probably closer to 5lbs.
