Between rain storms we are able to get in a little hornpout fishing. After spending about $130 for two, out of state, fishing license, we would like to fish more but it rains almost every day!
One of the locals told us that hornpout love chicken livers. They were right! We catch 20-30 in a couple of hours. Some of them are quite small, but still fun to catch.
We experimented with other bait such as cheese - we didn’t even get a nibble; Rubbery fake worms - Mark caught a few; Real worms - the hornpout like the real worms almost as much as chicken livers!
Fishing is a wonderful way to spend a couple of hours in the evening. Echo Lake, here in the park, is really beautiful. We see Canada Geese, Mallard ducks, and every once in a while a Loon.
