Chepner Returns!



This will be a brief post...I am still doing laundry and unpacking from the trip.

It was a wonderful visit - 6 days of peace, quiet and great fishing.

I will write more a little later when I have more time.



One thing before I go - Mr. Chep wanted me to inform you that the glove is for the protection of the fish.

Good to see you back. Glad you had a great time. Nice fish. Do you eat them, or throw them back? Protect the fish from what??

Happy Birthday? Happy Birthday, Chep!

You guys looks so happy, blissed out over those lunker fish and the peace of nature. What do you have there, a rock bass? A crappie? And what's that monster Mr. Chep caught? That must be the biggest muskie I've ever seen! WooooHOOOO! Babe Winkleman's got nothin' on you two!

Carol: The fish Mr. Chep is holding (Z: Walleye) was tossed back because we had already caught our limit. The one I have (Z: Black Crappie) we kept and it's in our freezer. I have some other photos of the Northern Pike that we caught, but we never keep those (Mr. Chep says they are hard to clean) As for the glove - fish have a natural "slime" on them in the water. If you use your hands or a towel this can remove that protective slime, the glove prevents that.

Zilla: Yes - Sunday was my 32nd birthday - so thanks! Oh and I have to admit that I posted a photo of Mr. Chep with a small fish to make mine look bigger!

I'm sooooo sorry about missing your day.
We haven't had DSL for almost a week. Bad modem.
Stress, etc. Family drama going on.
But, now it's fixed, and we all send hugs and kisses.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

32 has been good to me so far.

*Mr Chep is right. Pike do suck to clean.
