~You and Me Going Fishing In the Dark~

That is our Host, Alan Ferber who loves taking people out on the lake!! You must bait your own hook and remove the fish of course!!!!

Lynda is always in a happy mood even while having been confined to a wheel chair for many years!! She’s a joy to be around! She makes it a point not to let life pass her by! For richer or poorer in sickness and in health…..an inspirational couple!

The view from my side of the boat! Good for the soul…….

Well, we would have been fishing in the dark had we not needed to get home for chores!  Here is a short photo post on our fishing trip a few weeks ago.  Time flies when you are having fun.  We came home with 67 mostly Perch and several Blue Gills and Crappies……. Two days later, Fred, Mario and I went fishing again and brought home about the same amount as the above.  We should be good now for awhile for Friday fish meals!!

It was slow In the beginning for Bella, Silvana and our hostess, Lynda Ferber! Lynda caught the most fish using her one working arm and her teeth! She is amazing and always as cheerful as you can see in this photo.


Bella pulls them in silently and she did catch probably the second most fish that day!


Pure joy on Marisa’s face and a very relaxing day on this Minnesota/South Dakota lake!


I caught the least fish but I’d argue that I had the BEST time ever!!!


Big Stone Lake, South Dakota side!


On the road again………..


All smiles after a wonderful day on the lake!   That’s a lot of fish to clean!!!!  Alan and the girls did that job while I helped Lynda prepare supper.


Alan and Bella cleaning fish.


Alan in his butcher shop cleaning the fish. He is also the same man who has been teaching us how to make sausage and process meat the correct way.


Who’s hungry now?


Bless us Oh Lord for these thy gifts which we are about to receive from thy bounty through Christ our Lord, amen! Dig in…..

Life is good……….don’t miss it!


About Callens Honey Farm

We live on a small family farm located in S.W. Minnesota, near the South Dakota border. The source of our honey is from white and red clover. The honey appears as liquid gold in color. Our honey is extracted using a hand cranked centrifugal force extractor. Then the honey is screened once into a holding container from which we later fill the small honey bottles. We do not heat treat the honey nor add any other ingredients. Pure and natural is our Minnesota honey! What could taste better?

    awesome! was this an all girls trip fishing? looks like it. fun fun memories made! Bet you miss your whole family not being around, but growing up and spreading out to make their own lives and choices. hard to accept though. I know it is for me esp. with my younger twin, trying to do so well as the others siblings are. thx for constant updates. so interesting. syl


    • Thanks Syl! This was an all girl outing but Fred, Mario and I went two days later again and brought home almost as many. We usually have to break it up due to too many fisherman and the very heavy wheel chair. I did go see Jessi in Ohio last week and had a great visit and they are doing very well. Take care!

    Wow! I can’t believe this! It’s too good to be true. All of it —good people, God’s beauty every where in nature and his abundance, delicious food ( yes, I want some of that golden fried fish!)

    Sandra, you are right: it’s a good life there. Lot’s of hard work comes with the packet. I know . We city people look pretty “tame” by comparison.

    Good wishes to all your great family. And love. r r JMJ PS. bye the bye, did you ever get my email asking for more of your honey? Let me know. Thanks.


  3. Thank you Ruth for the sweet note. I am so sorry that I did not stop in and visit you last week. I really wanted to but not only did I not have my own wheels, I couldn’t help but want to stay in the nest with my grandchildren. I barely made it next door to Beth’s for a cup of coffee and later a quick good bye hug. I did not see a honey order but will email you later. Love from Minnesota!
