Back on the River

Wednesday afternoon I asked my favorite first mate if she would assist me in checking out the boat to see that everything was working properly. Other than a light on the trailer everything checked out. We took a ride down river by the airport and anchored up in 11-12 ft. of water. It was mid-afternoon, sunny and about sixty degrees; a nice afternoon. We must have stopped in the right spot because we had a good bite. In less than two hours we had our eight walleyes; all very nice. With the strong current, Diane was using a hammered gold spinner with 1-1/2 oz. sinker and she needed that much weight to stay near bottom. I was using the largest Swedish pimple that I had in my box. It was a toss-up; we each caught four, but I think she may have had a little more action than I did. It was good to be back on the river.
