The spawn of the bass

Sounds like a horror movie, right? (Is there a word more evil sounding than spawn?) Regardless, the Provo bass have been spawning all week, so Ryan's been out in the river snatching them up.

I met up with him after work one day and caught a couple fish of my own (on my very first cast, no less). Those fancy, schmancy fishing shades cut the glare off the water so you can see all the fish. I couldn't believe how many there were. Dozens of people were fishing on either side of us, lined up all along the bank by Utah Lake, and people were leaving with buckets and buckets full of fish. Apparently had several armies to feed. Or a sushi bar to stock.

We got a nice supply ourselves and whipped up our own little recipe for dinner that night. Behold, I present to you pita-crusted bass with an avocado lime sauce:

Recipe is forthcoming.
