As we all know, Saturday April 12th was the opening of trout season in the Northcentral part of the state. Normally that means you're going to be picking ice out of the eyes of your fishing rod. The beautiful weather this year was a welcome surprise. Several ECO families were out in full force and really enjoyed sharing the day with our friends at Mosquito Creek Sportsman Club. We had seven kids out that day fishing and all of them went home with sore arms from fighting all those fish. Every year it surprises me that the kids are so interested, not just in the fishing, but in cleaning, cooking, and eating the trout. Thanks to the guys at Mosquito Creek we actually had fish fillets instead of fish nuggets, they stocked beautiful fish, keep up the great work and what a great organization. The day started at 3:00 AM when my daughter and niece came downstairs and said they couldn't sleep. They wanted to "watch tv and have potato chips", we compromised and they had a bowl of cereal and went back to bed. What a great weekend, fishing, fort building, campfires, and time spent at camp. Enjoy the pictures.
