Kiwanis Weekend 2011
I was up late on Friday night (until about 11:30 p.m.) getting gear as ready as possible so I could wake up at 4:15 a.m., hop in the shower, get dressed and hit the road to be on the water by 6. I fished with my friend Erik Luzak again this year. We met at the Deseronto boat launch and set out from there. Although lots of anglers were loading boats, the Kiwanis organizers did a great job of keeping things running smoothly.
It didn’t take long for us to begin hooking into walleye! Nothing like hooking that first walleye of the season on open water, such a great feeling! Much like last year, we used bottom bouncers and worm harnesses and the ‘eyes just slammed them! The schools of walleye we got into were bigger than last year. I always seem forget one thing when I go fishing, and this time it was my camera battery (left in the charger). On such a gorgeous day, it was a big disappointment, but to my surprise my new iPhone takes great photos! So all the photos in this blog post are from my iPhone. Some of the photos were a bit funny, hard to hold a fish and take a photo at the same time!
