Sick and Twisted...but you'll LOVE it!

I know, it's pathetic, but I laughed so hard I could hardly stand it!  Bill, of course, thought I was crazy!!! (those who know me, know that's a given,)

Anyway, a slight explanation here.

We use wax worms, or bugs. And minnows.  I had been loading the hook up with 2 bugs AND a minnow with great success! And I brought in a nice Blue Gill.

After I took it off the hook......the bugs were in tact, but MOST of the minnow was gone.

ALL EXCEPT HIS 2 EYES!!! They were on the very end of the bug!!!!

HYSTERICAL....OK, I've been away from civilization for a week, and besides, I'm always easily amused.

I had to take this picture to share with my equally easily amused and twisted family and friends! YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!

That's a hard act to follow!

So I'll leave you with this gorgeous shot of the area we fish around. This setting on my camera is amazing. No adjustment here at all....Minnesota was breathtaking today!

And the sunsets are beautiful. This was the peaceful setting last night after we, and I mean WE, cleaned the fish. I helped fillet the little guys. Could not do the worst part, but I can skin the fillet.

We didn't get our limit, but then again we ate a lot of the product!

That's allowed.

Be well and be good to each other.

Miss everyone at home.

Linda aka MOM and NANA
