The Hot Hand

Jodi, Steve & Scott are in Minnesota on vacation; getting away from the heat of the southwest for a few weeks and we are happy to have them with us for some of that time.

Fishing is good and we have been out to the lake to take advantage of  it.  On Monday, Steve, Scott & I fished the outside of Pine Island during the middle of the day; caught a limit of nice eaters and released that many or more. We were drifting in eight to fifteen feet of water using a spinner with a shiner. Pink and hammered gold seemed to be the best colors. Wednesday evening after the Take-a-Kid Fishing event; Jodi, Steve and I went to the lake and fished from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in the same general area using spinners, shiners and some crawlers. We kept nine nice walleyes, three saugers and released several small ones. Jodi, however, had the hot hand. She caught and released walleyes of 19″, 21″, 23-1/2″ and 31″. I’ve had that old boat a long time and that’s the largest walleye that’s ever been in the boat.
