MEA Weekend

Many of us are waiting for the weather to shape up and the fish to move in the river and start a good bite; both have been slow in coming.

Jonathan and his two girls are home for the MEA weekend. We made the best of a cold, dreary Thursday by getting a couple odd jobs done around the house and then Jonathan took Rachel skating at the arena. Friday, the weather began to change and Jonathan, Rachel and I fished the river for a couple hours in the afternoon. We caught two walleyes and a perch. Both walleyes were too big to keep. Rachel caught one 21-1/2″ and I caught one 25″. After an early supper Jonathan and I fished the river that last hour before dark and caught five walleyes. Jonathan caught one to big; 22″, one to small and a nice one 17″. I caught one 20″ and an eater. We both lost a fish that we maybe could have kept, so for the short time we fished it wasn’t too bad.
