After a bad day up at Lake of the Woods Sunday we were looking to rebound on Monday. Chris Wallace, Pete Brook, Jeff, and I put the house out in 18 feet of water. The area had been producing jumbos and eater Walleyes through the daytime hours. So hopes were high.
Not more than 10 minutes after drilling holes, Chris Wallace caught a nice eye. We thought that it was going to be a fantastic day. The bite turned out to be steady, but not hot. We ended up keeping 37 perch and 4 walleyes for a nice fish fry.
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
