Missed that one

We have settled into a pattern of typical early May weather; wet and cool. What was supposed to be a partly sunny, high near fifty, turned into a day with  snow showers and a temp in the low forties. The weather service missed that one.

Topper invited Martin and I to a day with him on Crow Lake. He’s a great guy, taking a couple of old farts like us along and he knows Crow Lake well. I’ve been a little hesitant to mention anything about his guiding ability for fear that he’d end up in such demand that he might not have much time for us. Well, yesterday proved to be a challenge. The water temperature was colder than when Topper and I were there two weeks ago. We spent over four hours on two different rocks without a run and trolled for over an hour with Martin getting the only strike and a nice lake trout. In spite of the weather and slow fishing it was a good day.
