Tie Breaker

Jeff and I have fished the river three or four times this past month for a couple of hours before dark. River fishing is generally slow this time of the year, but we’ve managed to catch something each time out. The first time he bested me, the next time I got him. Wednesday evening, I mentioned something about a tie-breaker and it didn’t take Jeff long to settle that. He promptly caught a nice 24″ walleye and for good measure, two more to take home. I had one bite.

As we were leaving the dock that evening, we noticed a Loon close by. We don’t see them very often on this end of the lake; sometimes in the spring as they are moving through, but not at this time of the year. We were able to get close and it didn’t seem to mind. Later, it was out in the middle of the river and made a couple of their familiar calls. It was nice to see.
