Here fishy fishy fishy...

Kelly & I went up to Chad's grandparents' house in Brainerd this weekend. The weather was unbelievable and we caught lots of fish. Wendy got to sleep in while us stooges hit the water. She joined us on Saturday afternoon for some pan fishing where Chad caught the only keepers. Kelly kept 2 bass and so he got a lesson on filleting bass and sunnies. I observed - I'm sure with a grimace but with equal fascination. Sunday we got up at 5:30 and found a hot spot. Chad caught several bass, Kelly about 4 northern (1 keeper) and 2 snakes (baby northern) plus about a 1.5 lb bass. I was the lucky one on Sunday (making up for a dry Saturday). I probably pulled in 7 or 8 northern and a 2 lb bass. Kept a 3 lb northern and of course the bass! Chad's uncle Dennis gave us some pointers on filleting northern and Kelly & I went home with a bucket full of fillets! Can't wait for the fish fry!
