Buford Hatchery

Saturday was Fake Mother's Day. Real Mother's Day was on Sunday but via some complex logic that I can't remember now we decided it would be better to do stuff together as a family on Saturday. We did various things, but one of them was catch fish at our favorite little fishing hole.

Man, did we catch fish.


Again, Kathryn and Iz caught so many that they eventually got bored. For the first time in her life, Isabel got brave enough to take the fish off of the hook too and took most of them off herself.

Kathryn managed to catch an angry turtle...

...and what I guess is a Pumpkinseed.


I caught what seemed like a much bigger catfish at the time...


I guess that's how so many fish stories start.

Iz caught the biggest bluegill that we've yet caught in this pond.

 Biggest Bluegill Yet

It looked a lot bigger in real life too. It didn't look too healthy though, and she didn't want to hold it either way.

We had a good time.

The pond closes at 4:30 and we usually set an alarm and get going at about 4:20. Nobody else ever seems to be in such a hurry though and again Saturday, people were still arriving at 4:00 with tons of gear. I've seen this over and over. I wonder if they know something we don't know.
