scum sucking eels

by problembear

after sturgeon fishing on the columbia one day below bonneville dam, everyone was too tired from staying awake all weekend to properly clean out my brother’s live well in his sled before parking it behind the welding shop and forgetting about it during the hottest part of summer.

about six weeks later,  it was time to get ready to do some salmon fishing. while jim backed up the ford to the trailer hitch i noticed a smell and lifted up the live well hatch and found the eels we had used for bait about forty days ago.

that smell was preferable to the one emanating from this scum sucker.
