We get a huge sucker run in a tributary of the Hudson behind my house early May.
As a kid I'd go there just mainly to watch them ( and some shenanigans).
Some folks would come with buckets and a net. They'd net them in mid air as they tried to jump the dam and leave with buckets full.
Well, tonight was an incredible dinner of stuffed striper with diced clams and perch.
We also broiled a backstrap chunk ( didn't make the picture)
Nothing like eating foods that came by our own hands.
I gotta take next weekend off from the hardwater to do some family obligation.
After then, I'll be on some big waters after Lakers. So far I've been out every weekend just before the new year.
I'm booked for the SR again opening trout day. I got some irons in the fire up there and as always on that time, I'll visit Jack's secret spot.
