Ben (12) and his friend Ryan caught enough fish for a couple of meals or snacks per day. (Mainly pan fish and a couple of northern-pike from the fishing dock.)

The weekend worked out pretty nicely. The weather was cool and windy but we largely missed the rain over the weekend once we got through Friday evening. The kids caught multiple stringer-fulls of pan fish and a few northern-pike. We had fish for many of the meals through the weekend.
