Fishing with Julie

Daughter Julie took a break from work and all those daily family activities to go with Diane to a 8oth birthday party for Diane’s mother in ND. They have returned to Baudette and Julie will be here for a couple of days before flying back home.  It gave Julie and I a chance to go fishing together. We both tried to recall the last time that just the two of us went fishing and came to the conclusion that it was a long, long time ago.

Thursday, after lunch, we put the boat in and went up river and anchored in about 15′ of water. There was a cold front coming in and the weather was changing, but it was nice for the two hours or so that we fished. For the middle of the afternoon the fishing was quite good. We were using spinners with shiners; hammered gold seemed to be the color that worked best. We caught about 15 walleyes; kept a limit of nice eaters and released the others. Julie kept track and claims that she caught eight. That’s the story of my life; the women in my family always catch more fish than I do.
