For as long as I can remember , our little family has spent Memorial Day fishing. We pack a picnic lunch and head to the lake. We fish for a while and stop for lunch before we head to another lake fishing. We have included various people in our tradition throughout the years but we have never wavered from it. This year we hit three different bodies of water with my brother-in-law and 2 of my nephews. It was a beautiful, sunny (although a little windy) day.
Usually at the end of the day we head home to clean our catch and have a big ol’ fish fry. I can only remember there being one year where we actually had to buy fish because we did not have enough for friends and relatives. This year we did really well and the weather was so beautiful we didn’t want to come home. We left at 9:30am and didn’t get home until 9:20pm! Needless to say, the fish fry was put on hold. Fish tastes better fresh but we knew we’d be too busy this week to eat them so they were moved to the freezer where we will enjoy them this weekend.
