Gone Fishin'


Jerry and I went fishing today at Patagonia Lake State Park. What a beautiful place! It is our favorite fishing spot. It gets to be quite noisy and congested on the weekends and holidays but early on a Thursday morning, it was very peaceful and lovely. :)
We only caught two bluegill but it was still worth the drive of a little over an hour just to get away. I hate to admit it but I had never cleaned a fish before. When we got home, I found a wonderful YouTube video on how to clean and fillet small panfish here. I highly recommend checking it out! We had a few worms left over and some very happy chickens when we got home!


In addition to the peace and quiet and fishing, there were ducks looking for a bite to eat amongst the reeds.



A VERY cheeky squirrel with a broken tail. Jerry couldn't resist the little guy and gave him a piece of bread.



And it wouldn't be a proper fishing spot without the ever popular Bobber Berry Tree! We counted at least six. ;-)


I'm happy to report that we did NOT add to the decorations, at least this time!
Linking up with the Rural Thursday Blog Hop, stop by and check out what everyone is up to! :)

You got a fish! We're going tomorrow I think. I'm not a big fish eater but I do like blue gill and crappie plus the church fish frys during Lent, which is cod. Happy Fishing!

What a pretty little spot you found! We haven't had a lot of luck fishing this past year.

Oh I would truly love to be fishing in this beautiful little spot. Alas the hay and other things await my attention:) B

My dad taught me how to clean fish. :o)
And my hubby knows how to fillet. I am bad at that.
I love to eat fish. I think because we ate so much when I was little.

Thanks for all the great pictures. Glad you had a good time!

Nice. I'm not much for fishing but the rest of the family likes it. The time to get away is always worth the drive

I love bluegill. I haven't had it for years and years though. My brothers used to catch dozens of them and we'd bread them and fry them up with onions until crispy. My husband fishes (I don't), but he says bluegill are too small to be worth while, so he doesn't keep them.
