Canada...? HELL NO!!!....This Is Walleye Heaven!!!
WOW...What a Trip!
Friday night I buggied out of work about 4 PM.
Went home, finished packing, waited for Alex to pick up me and Reese .
We then drove over to our friend Jim's place, and he drove the 110 miles up to his cabin in Au Gres.
The first pick is his magnificent fishing boat, a 22 foot Grady White.
We built a little bonfire, drank a few Labatt's Blues, and turned in early.
The next day was PRISTINE on Saginaw Bay.
As the day wore on...HUNDREDS of boats were trolling for Wall-Eye.
By 1 pm we had 11 in the box, and decided to go in for lunch.
We almost hosed-out and didn't go back out that afternoon, but we heard that there might be 25 mph winds on Sunday, and we went out for a second run.
I'm glad we did because we landed 6 more keepers.
17 in all for a terrific day of angling.
Reese is holding up about a 5# Sheepshead.
Shep is holding up a nice Wall-Eye.
I lucked out and landed the catch of the day..A 23 1/2 inch Hog!
We feasted today on Fried Wall-Eye, Taters, and Home-Made Jalapeno Poppers.
Of course those pics will be posted tomorrow...
I want to thank Jim for hosting one of our greatest fishing trips EVER.
And thats saying something because we have fished together DOZENS of times over the last 40 years.
Reese had the time of his life with his old Pop.
Grab the fun while you can, cause life is way too fleeting...
Food Pics tomorrow.
