Watery Wednesday



This guy was throwing his cast net out near one of the boat landings at Lake Jackson. It brought back childhood memories of my grandfather throwing his cast net into the surf at the beach where I grew up. He always came out of the water with a net full of fresh mullet which we would take home and fry for supper. To see more wonderful watery pictures, visit Watery Wednesday.

Used to do something like this to catch minnows to use for bait at the lake...

Now I can't twist around like that...

It looks like an olympic sport! I wonder if he caught any fish? Great shot, Lois!

I'm always amazed how many fish are caught this way.

Nice picture and nice memories. It is great when you can do net fishing, so must more fiendly than with a hook.

I don't think I've ever seen someone fish like that before. It looks so warm and green there! Every time I think it's spring, we get more snow. It's snowing again now!

I wonder if this guy is trying to catch fish to eat or fish for bait. You actually ate mullet? I've never tried them, but I've heard they are mushy. No?
