Last week we endured rain almost every day. The new battery powered bilge pumps came in handy since the boats were filling up with water about as fast as we could pump it out. The rain cooled the water off significantly. We saw surface water temps drop from the mid-60s to about 59-60 degrees and the water level came up almost a foot. The guests (which included several family members) enjoyed an excellent week of fishing.
The big fish bar was pushed higher thanks to their efforts and all of the fish mentioned and pictured were released! My uncle Terry tied Brenda Holiski with a big 42″ Northern Pike. My sister Whitney came in just behind with a healthy 41.5″ fish seen below.
My dad Tracy landed a nice 28″ Walleye seen below.
My brother Carson caught another lunker Musky – this one measuring 42″ seen below.
Carrie celebrated her 26th birthday with a key lime pie (her favorite, and no – she didn’t have to make it). Also, I handled breakfast duties to allow Carrie to sleep in for a change. She says thanks for all the birthday wishes!
