Life means never having a dull moment, huh?
Don’t worry, be happy.
Okay, you guessed it. The fish have been biting, of late.
Landed a bunch of nice walleyes: Where? At a place called Smoothrock Camp on Ontario’s Smoothrock Lake (west of Armstrong, Ont.).
Just as important: landed a good story.
It’s about a entrepreneur named David Dill. The name might ring a bell. David is a Minnesota Legislator who lives in Crane Lake and who once owned an aviation business.
Now---David is running a Canadian fishing camp and a fly-in outpost business known as Thunderhook Fly-ins. He’s also still wearing his political hat and running for re-election in Minnesota’s November election.
Please don’t think I’m David’s campaign manager, but I find it interesting that one of our lawmakers is also in the fishing business. I mean, that’s good…good to have someone making our fishing laws who also knows what it’s like to hold a fishing rod.
Okay, enough politics.
The walleye bite was awesome on Smoothrock. A jig and minnow in 20 feet of water produced in some places a walleye every 20 seconds. With fishing action like that we all could have our own fishing television show, huh?
Alas, the fish don’t always bite like that. I went bass fishing the other day and couldn’t catch a cold.
My mood turned to sugarless lemonade. And that ain’t good.
