One for the wall

Diane’s sister, Kathy, and her husband, Dustin, took a West Texas whitetail deer  hunt over the Thanksgiving weekend. Kathy got the best of the guys; a nice buck that measured 156-5/8″ that I understand is very nice for a West Texas whitetail. This is Kathy’s first whitetail and one for the wall.

Ice fishing is close to being in full swing. Cold weather is making ice and the fish bite is good. Reports have about 10″ of ice on the Lake and the bite on the north side of Pine Island is terrific. Ice conditions on the Rainy River are spotty; some places have up to 8″ of ice, but there are still open holes up and down the river. I have found fishing to be a little spotty. The other morning I caught six walleyes in a little over an hour with three to big to keep; 20″-25″. Then yesterday afternoon I fished for an hour and never had a bite. I’ll blame it on the numerous weather changes we’ve been having lately.
