Pelican Rapids, Minnesota
August 29 - September 5, 2009
Well, it was a quiet week at Lake Lida this year. Nothing to complain about. Good weather, good fishing, good food, cold beer. Even the company was congenial. The merry crewe consisted of Gary Clark, Ron Sidener, Larry Self, Jim Mendenhall, Jim Lee, Lee Koepping and Jeff Thomas.
The fishing was slightly different this year in that smallmouth bass abounded in the 2½ to 3½ pound range. This made for not only good fishing but also good eating. Jim Mendenhall took the big fish pot (again) with a 4 pound Northern, so Gary was happy with that addition to our fish dinner on Tuesday night.
