When You Go Fishing & You Get Skunked, You Can Always Count On Salmon Patty Sandwiches

Add one more time to the list where I couldn't catch enough fish for dinner.   It's actually happened to the same friend and I three times now.  We promised we will never plan on it again, as it's always been the worse fishing.  We went out to a lake where we have always walked away with fish, and this time we didn't walk away with any keepers.  But that's ok!  We planned a back up.  Salmon patties!
