David has been fishing over at the ponds several times now. He has been getting up to do early morning fishing. He tries to be at the ponds by 6:00. This has been proving to be a good time to go. He has finally been able to catch some bigger sized catfish. He has now brought home two that weighed 2 lbs. and were 18 inches long, also a couple that were 1 1/2 pounds and just under 18 inches. The rest have been just nice pan sized. He continues to bring home the blue gill, and perch. He has also brought 3 trout home now. Neither of us have caught trout for some time and now he is bringing at least one home each trip.
I am not fishing this year, but I do give David a “Kiss for Luck” before he leaves for each fishing trip. I think it is working, because the one time I forgot to give it to him, he only brought home 2 bait fish to stick in the stock tank. Every other time he has brought home his limit of catfish and a couple of others be they a mixture of perch, bluegill or trout.
The photo below is a typical catch for the day. He had already removed a perch and a bluegill to clean them.
