Winding Down

The Bosch winter test season is winding down. The are only a half-dozen employees here getting vehicles and equipment shipped back to Michigan and  putting others away for the summer. The end of winter is not far off.

Friday, I took one of the Bosch employees to the International Falls airport. I took a time out and had lunch with Julie, a classmate who has lived in International Falls for about as long and we have lived in Baudette. We grew up a block apart in Wadena and went through twelve years of school together. Over all the years, the only times that we’ve seen each other have been at ten-year class reunions. We had a nice visit over lunch.

Thursday evening, Jeff, one of the Bosch Boys, caught a 28-1/2″ walleye and took over first place for the winter test big fish contest. He gave some thought to putting it on the wall, but decided that there may be another one sometime and released it.  There are three guys left here to get a bigger one and they only have about a week to get it done.

I fished with Ken and Earl on Friday evening. Earl and I each caught a nice walleye; they were the only two bites we had. Friday, I fished pike by the bridge for a couple of hours during the day and then fished with Tom in one shanty, while Ken and Earl were in another. Earl caught a pike and Ken a nice walleye. Tom and I caught two walleyes and a sauger. I had caught two pike earlier so Tom had a mess of fish to clean.
