They're hooked!

I'm taking the girls home to California at the end of next month. My sister and I are taking our collective offspring camping to Lake Solano for a couple of days where we'll party, make S'mores, tell ghost stories and fish. My sister has scored an awesome campsite.

Since my kids have never fished before Jim decided to teach them in plenty of time to catch The Big One. They practiced casting into a plastic pool in the back yard for two days and seemed to have nailed the technique because yesterday the girls caught their very first fish!

I was terribly excited for them but I suddenly had a very nasty thought about our upcoming camping trip:

Who's supposed to clean the fish? *barf*

Could you just throw them back?

Wow Lake Solano looks beautiful. Peacocks thrive there, the website says.

Fish? Throw them back and eat hot dogs instead.

OOH!! THE FIRST FISH THAT I HAD CLEAN WAS SOME YEARS AGO AT THE "COOK'S COURSE" ( I DO IT ONLY FOR ONE MONTH..NOW MY SPECIALITY IS TO COOK "THE EGGS WITH THE EGGSWITHE TRANSFORMED IN MILK"(IT'S FALSE THAT IS MILK,IT SEEMS LIKE MILK!) : VERY EASY,PUT THE WATER IN A LITTLE POT,WHEN THE WATER IS BOILING,PUT INSIDE THE EGGS,HOLD FOR 3 MINUTES,NOT MORE ,AND VOILA':THE EGGS ARE READY!;) THE REAL NAME OF THIS "MAIN DISH" IS FRANCE' AND IT SOUNDS SO GOOD "OEUFS A LA COQUE")

WELL, I WAS SAY THAT WHEN I CLEANED MY FIRST FISH I CLOSED MY EYES, A GRIMACE WAS ON MY FACE, AND ..WHEN I .."SEPARATE" THE HEAD BY THE "BODY" OF THE FISH MY FACE ,EARS INCLUDED, WAS ON FIRE!!I STOPPED IN THE IMMEDIATELY WHAT I WAS DOING!(THERE IS A SPECIAL MOVEMENT TO DO TAKING BY THE FINGERS THE BACKBONE OF THE FISH..PLEASE ELIZ DON'T DO ANY GRIMACE , I DO IT FOR YOU: YOU MUST TO LEARN HOW TO DO IT !!)

Ooh, I agree, that's what boys are for...blech. If no boys are coming, then practice catch & release, and eat hot dogs instead!

I hope you have a great time!
