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 (standing: L-R) Jim Mendenhall, Jim Lee, Ron Sidener, Jeff Thomas, Gary Clark; (front: L-R) Lee Koepping and Larry Self.
The fishing was slightly different this year in that smallmouth bass abounded in the 2 to 4 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.
