SkyWatch Friday - Sunset after wrestling with fish.

Just got back from a sturgeon fishing trip with the sun setting on a beauful and memorable day.   Here the sun is setting over the Snake River below the JC Strike Reservoir near Mountain Home.


It was the end of a wonderful day when I caught the largest fish of my life.

Wow! That's a great one (and the fish is really something too ;>)...Not being a fisherman (fisherwoman?) I don't usually go to your other blog, but this one is going to send me there.

Oh Yum, sturgeon! The best freshwater fish I've ever eaten. And it looks to be a keeper size. How exciting. Plus that golden sunset. I've been to Mt Home ID but didn't get a gorgeous sky like this.

Those are some really cool prehistoric looking fish. I've seen them caught before and even tried for them myself a couple times. Congratulations! I have a brother in Mountain Home and that's only an hour away from where I live. Next time we'll have to meet up for breakfast and some birding...or fishing.

Hi Bill, great sturgeon catch. Hope we can conserve & enhance the populations of these dinosaurs so our grandkids can know them, too.

Great sunset photo, too.
