Filling the Freezer back up...

Popular demand calls for more fish frys. We started back down that road yesterday and got some help from friends Suzi and Charlie to load the boat with 42 fat cats. Fair to average size they made 9 pounds 7 ounces of fillets. We put 6 pounds in the freezer and ate 3 pounds last night. 

This is what a fishing trip looks like through Cathy's eyes. 

This is what Suzi looks like on a fishing trip. 

Charlie, who has begun a new phase of life called retirement makes a new friend while Cathy helps the friend's friend look on. 

Suzi wins the prize for the largest wad of trot line string snagged on this trip. 

Cathy proves that the fish bit at the back of the boat just as well. 

There's a nice one! 

Charlie and Cathy double again. Charlie took one for the team with a catfish fin to the hand. Painful for sure but the fish met his end in a hot frying pan. 

After this photo of a wash tub full of fish they swam in our belly. Menu was fried catfish, hushpuppies, carrot salad and cajun potato salad. 

I figured there would be a good bite before the weather change that is predicted this weekend. This morning looks like a foggy blue cat kind of day. Cooler weather patterns should change things from a deep water to a shallow water pattern pretty soon but there are fish everywhere in the lake. The spot we fished yesterday has produced in the hottest part of the summer and last year we caught a bunch of fish same place on Christmas Day.
