Nothing marks the arrival of spring like opening weekend of trout fishing in southeastern MN! It was probably one of the nicest opening weekends we can recall, weather-wise! So we headed to our favorite creek near the farm to cast our lines...
Brandon caught the first fish of the season... but Mike was close on his heels with the second one!
Brandon (with a little help from me) caught the whopper of the day!
Later Mike hit an area we used to fish a lot prior to it getting so thick & overgrown after the floods... & caught a few more nice ones!
It was a great opening day... quite the pan of fish getting ready to be baked!
We feasted on trout cakes (like a crab cake)... they are one of our favorite ways to eat them!
we're a family of 4 who love the outdoors...
camping, hiking, geocaching, biking, snowshoeing, hunting & fishing. Our kids have been taken along on our adventures from pretty much day one! This blog is our new attempt (instead of our old website) to help keep our family & friends (many of whom live far away) a little more up to date on our life & our growing kiddos.
