Fishing on the Guadalupe River

Where we are camped is backed onto the Guadalupe River and since it is so close and handy, the Leader of the Pack decided to take advantage of the situation.  He caught a couple small perch on tiny hooks then used them to bait a line with larger hooks which he then tied to a small branch down by the water’s edge.  Then Friday morning before we left to go to the vet, he checked his line.  Lo and Behold he had 2 fish on the hooks.  So now we are fixed for some good fried catfish dinners.  Of course we had to buy a small Fry Daddy at Gibson’s and pick up some fresh Louanna’s Canola Oil and corn meal and flour.  Two sites down from us there was the neatest young family with 2 small boys who were on their first outing in a new rig.  The boys were itching to catch a fish so some time was spent on Saturday helping them bait their hooks and catch the perch then rig the line to catch a big catfish.  Cute kids and makes us realize this is a great way for parents to spend some quality time with their kids. We call it “Building Memories”.
