Our homeschool group had a blast seining at Beczak! The kids had fun, and so did the parents, many of whom donned hip waders and tried their hand with the net. (And yes, that's me in the second photo-- the big goofy one in the black "Lead me not into temptation... especially bookstores!" T-shirt.) This is the first time I tried it, and it was an ideal day-- it was great to cool off in the river after baking in the summer sun. Walking in waders feels like what I imagine moonwalking does. Well, that, or having had a few drinks! It's a very odd feeling. But fun!
Checking out what's in the net:
Our catch gets transferred into bubbler buckets, and the kids get to wet their hands and touch the critters.
Here's what we caught:
10 Atlantic Silversides
2 Striped Bass
1 Blue Crab
