Father-daughter fishing day.

Yesterday was the last day of my holidays, and I hadn’t done any shooting or fishing in 2 1/2 weeks, so I headed up to Marv’s place at Shell Lake, accompanied by Fiona. After shooting off two boxes of shells with my new pump-action shotgun (while powdering too few clays, and getting a purple shoulder), Marv, Rachel, Fiona and I spent a few hours fishing on Little Shell Lake. A very nice afternoon. We didn’t get the violent thunderstorm that hit Prince Albert. The small northern pike (better known as jackfish) were biting well, and Fiona and I each caught a walleye (pickerel). Supper at Marv and Sarah’s, followed by filetting, and we made it back to P.A. safely after almost hitting a deer (sorry for hitting the brakes so hard Fiona).

    We had a good feed of pike, and they were tasty.
    The walleye are still in the freezer, and I expect them to be even yummier.

    I’ve been fishing this summer too, first time in probably 35years. Went to Lake Lenore and caught our limit of pickerel and a jack. Had a great time but I think that if I wasn’t catching anything I’d get a bit board, may need to hide a book somewhere just in case.
