Manitoulin Island, Canada

 We spent 1week on this Island the Largest freshwater island in the world. It is in Lake Huron.This is a 17 inch bass my son Clark got in front of our cottage.

   This is a 24 inch trout or salmon we are not sure what kind of fish. The flesh was pink. We had bass and this fish for dinner it was great. Donna his girl friend fried them with egg and corn meal only with a lid on skillet and it tasted wonderful. I guess it was the fresh water of South Bay Lake. We also enjoyed 2 perch dinners from fish he caught.
