AFTERNOON

Angel and I  on this big chair outside a rest stop
Greetings Prim Folk,  Happy Saturday to you all, it is a fine day here, warm and sunny with a gentle breeze blowing, perfect summer day............We came in from our trip to Ontario  a couple hours ago,  nice to be home once again but had a wonderful time visiting friends.  Beautiful scenery, love being out on the blue lakes, smell of pine trees, so  relaxing.   Yesterday we went fishing in the boat on a lake called Ord, quiet and so tranquil, we really had a great afternoon catching fish, we all caught fish, the other couple,  Cam and I , does not happen very often.   The first fish I caught on my brand new rod was a big Northern Pike, yippee!!! did he put up a fight, wow,  but I finally reeled him to the boat, always wanted to catch a big Northern, and alas I did. But the poor guy was really  scarred up, not to sure what happened to him but   he was 34 inches of game fish,  I thanked him and with a smack of the tail, he was gone, of coarse I let him go.  Then the Walleye started biting and they were all catching them but me,  I  just was catching smaller Pikes, but at least catching fish.... With enough Walleye for a good feast, 7 in total, but still not at the limit.  We went in closer to the shore for a last cast, well,  I felt a tug, reeled in my catch and it was a Walleye, oh ya, now we all caught supper......Went back to the friends home and  she cooked up those  yummy fish, so so tasty, always enjoy a good feed of Walleye........had a wonderful time visiting them but  now back at home till Monday, going to spend my last 3 days of my holidays at the trailer before I go back to work........ Wishing you all a wonderful weekend, Blessings Francine.

  1. Nothing like fresh caught - pan fried - fish. We don't normally eat fish, but if caught, then immediately fried up, we like it. Glad you had a great time!

  3. Good for you and hubby. It is nice to get away. And what a bunch of good eating you caught!!Going Monday to our daughter and son-in-law's cottage on Keuka Lake ( here in the Finger Lakes of NY). My hubby will be fishing then. The neighbors have been getting many lake trout and some big bass on Keuka all summer. I'm allergic to fish ...any kind with out a shell.....so no fish for me to eat!

  11. Francine...your pictures are simply beautiful and it sounds like you had a marvelous holiday! I love the picture of you...always wondered what you looked like! Very pretty! :)

    We catch Northern and walleye as well as small and large mouth bass on our lake...the occasional perch. We mostly throw them back in but when we have a large group fishing, we sometimes keep them for a meal. How do prepare and cook your walleye? I'd love to know!

    XO,
    Jane

  12. Hello Francine!!! I've so enjoyed catching up on your blog this evening! It has been so long since I've been fishing and enjoyed Walleye and you've made me remember some of the times, thank-you for that! :-)

    I do hope you enjoy the last 3 days of your holiday and continue to enjoy the fabulous weather--We are having it too, and I'm also remembering why I love September! Take care!!!
