This is an old photo that was marked by Far Guy’s Grandma Tracie, she most likely took the photo also.
The year is 1923 and it looks like it is in the spring of the year. As far as I can tell it was taken at the farm.
Grandpa looks like he might have been in the river out back. The fish are most likely Suckers and we think maybe there is a Northern Pike in the front.
The boys are little in 1923. Far Guy’s Dad Marvin is 8 1/2 according to Gram. That would make Uncle Ronald on the left 5 years old and Uncle Jimmy near the fish not yet 2 years old.
It used to be a big deal to go sucker spearing, the season didn’t open until May 1st…but in a warm spring the suckers ran earlier…and what are you supposed to do?
Some fishermen might have taken a gunny sack or two and a spear and visited the river late at night. Maybe…
I might have been with them a time or two…maybe.
