Minnesota Run! (Got My Fishin Boots On)

Last sunday I got a call from one of my buddies I served with in Vietnam. Doug says,"the fish are bitin'". So off I went tuesday morning. Arrived in Rogers Minnesota about three got my liscense and we were off to the lake. Spent the next two days catchin' mostly sunfish. It was in the 40's those two days so the fishin' had slowed a little, but we still had a good time. Ice on the lakes up there was 24" to 30" thick, so we were able to drive out onto the lake. Also went to a local highschool hockey game. That was a new experience for me. Almost enjoyed it as much as catchin' fish. Doug and I had a good visit talking about old times. That's Doug in the pictures with some of our fish and riggin up a tip up.
Called GiGi thursday and she said it had been in the 60's while I was gone, so when I got home yesterday the snow was all gone. What a difference a few days can make. Hoped it would stay warm but the forecast is calling for more seasonal weather, so it will be back in the 30's and 40's this next week. X.


  1. I can't believe you missed our warm weather!! But it sounds as though you had a good time (and besides, the warm weather will be back).

  2. My goodness, so many fish. I used to love fishing, but never went ice fishing. Looks like fun.
