Fished WED, FRI, SUN

The trout were biting well on monnows and waxies. was wet and muddy all days but for putting in a few hours at the hunt club pond I was successful in some right each day. Last day got a small walleye and a nice 15 inch trout let them both go to appease the fishing gods and build Karma for Ice season.

Day 1
Kayak day. solo run.
Image

the haul: Biggest was 15 inches. smallest was 13. Lost a 17....
Image

Day 2: Shore fishing same spot
14in and 13 in
phone took a poor pic in light conditions.
Image

Day 3: light snow and wind shore fishing boat launch. Both released.
walleye was about 13 inches.
Image

trout was 14 inches
Image

The reward:

Lemon and sage trout. Pan fried in butter and then splashed with white wine to finish.

Image

Orange and almond trout: pan fry almonds in butter and then add to inside of trout with orange slices. pan fry fish in butter and finish with a splash of white wine.
Image

Prep: Make it look good for the folks at home shopping on Monday

If the kids don't want to go fishing....................bring a Dog :

Thanks. Sounds like I’ll have to get some next time I do a spotted cow run.
Ralphie and Herbie will both be spending the holidays at home.
