Memorial Day Weekend Roundup

The Memorial Day weekend crew
 The Lake House at Big Shag Lake was at capacity over the holiday weekend. Harlan, Wendy, Kristy, Zach, Brian, Roy, Jonah, Dad, Bowser and Maverick all enjoyed the beautiful weather.

I'm running behind on the blog, so we'll just post a selection of pics the encompass the three primary activities over the three day weekend - fishing, eating, drinking.  Not necessarily in that order.

FISHING:


Lots and lots of fishing going on over the holiday weekend.


Even including some "born again" Ott fisherpeople.


Yep, lots of fishing...


... just not much catching.


A  nephew/niece fishing expedition heads out filled with all the optimism and high expectations of a newly elected Obama Administration...


... only to have their hopes dashed when they are ignominiously towed back to the dock under cover of darkness. An EPIC FAIL.. Just like... well... you know.


Apparently the speedboat requires a supply of gasoline. Who knew? 


EATING AND DRINKING:

Shockingly - we ate and drank too well over the extended holiday weekend.

 A half slab of Up North Ribs for the birthday boy was the weekend warm-up.


Roy demonstrates his grilling chops with perfectly seared potato sausage and steaks grilled to taste.



Our short order fry chef served up his breakfast specialties, including matzo eggs, 
potato pancakes, and eggs cooked to order.

 BLAT sandwiches and corn on the cob.

Roy's racist white bean chili served with Two Brother's racist white beer followed by equally racist New Glarus white Belgium beer. 

Yooperkranian Pickles

 Locally harvested Bambi Jalapeno sausage and locally farmed beef bratwurst 
with locally brewed Vierling porter.

 Wendy served as dessert chef...

 ... preparing grilled fruit skewers and blueberry rasberry coffee cake.


 Zach manned the bar and served up Mohitos.

The fishing was not good enough for a full blown fish fry with this crew. But by Monday dinnertime everyone had left except Dad and me. The only reliable fisherman in the group hd caught enough bluegills for an intimate dinner for two.

Papa has the trophy catch thus far.

 Blugs prepared "Lou's North Beach" style. 


 A fine finish to the weekend.
