"We ought to get some berries and I ought to get a partridge or some partridges. We've always got trout. But I don't want you to get tired."
"Were you ever tired of trout?"
"No. But they say people get tired of them."
I wouldn't get tired of them," Littless said. "You get tired of pike right away. But you never get tired of trout nor perch. I know Nickie. True."
"You don't get tired of walleyed pike either," Nick said. "Only of shovelnose. Boy, you sure get tired of them."
"I don't like the pitchfork bones," his sister said. "It's a fish that surfeits you."
- Ernest Hemingway - Nick Adams Stories
We are catching a lot of undersized shovelnose. They are even hitting Papa's poppers.
Hopefully we'll get a keeper eventually.
