Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center in E. TX

On the tram tour

Pretty fall foliage, right here in TX
Up close with local wildlife

We came across this wood cabin,
cool since we're studying the Prairie Primer
this year! We also saw a small waterfall,
the week we read about Pa making his
"fish trap" to catch fish coming over
a waterfall on Plum Creek!

The exquisite prairie outfit
G'ma made for COS!
Feeding catfish...
My Aunt Jo has a catfish pond
and I grew up with her feeding
her catfish. I always thought it was
so cool to watch - and she didn't
have the see-through glass, either!
Yep, it's real. It's just behind very clean glass.
Make the picture below enlarged -
it's a cool wire sculpture of an angler
catching a fish. Very cool.
Our favorite part - FISHING!
JSS caught the most with 6!

Getting some expert angler edjumacation
from this lady, who gladly taught us
several times how to remove a catfish
from our line without getting hurt.
(By "us" I really mean JSS.)

He became quite the expert
and the hero of us ladies.

Aquatic cannibalism

the nerve to remove her catfish
from her line...

...in the end, it was big bro
to the rescue (again).

G'ma caught the biggest catch of
the day, beating COS by 1/100th
of an ounce!

Fun times!
