Annual Trout Trip

We have just finished our annual trout trip. Three of the Bosch Boys, Jim, Tom & Steve came from Michigan. Jonathan came up and brought Britta to stay with Grandma Diane. George, Terry and I made up the seven that went to Whitefish Bay for three days. Jim’s dad, Bill, had some health issues and couldn’t make this years trip. We went up Sunday and fished that afternoon, Monday and Tuesday. Jonathan needed to go home on Wednesday, so we came back to Baudette Tuesday afternoon. The weather all three days was great; not a drop of rain and just a nice breeze most of the time. There was a major hatch of black flies that didn’t bite, but were a nuisance. The fishing was ok. The group caught 18 trout; had a meal of fish each day and were just one short of a limit for each to bring home. Steve caught the big fish; a nice 34″ trout, but I wasn’t with him to get a picture. All the fish were caught rock fishing. We tried trolling different times, but nothing; not even a pike. It was another great trip.

After the rest of the group returned on Wednesday, Jim, Tom, Steve and I went to the golf course and played in a men’s night evening scramble. The four of us played as a team and it was a good time. The golf score was not good; something about not having your own clubs.
