going to try to chronicle our fishing adventures this year.

This one is a little late but the weekend of April 25-26 (our 3rd anniversary) we went to the casino at New Town, won enough for supper then went down behind the casino fishing overnight, caught 2 channel cats 8 lbs and almost 3 lbs and my first burbot almost 3 lbs. caught them all on smelt during the night time.

Today our adventure was going to Skermo up in the nw corner of the state, wife caught 7 northerns and I caught 1, we kept 4. Hers were all caught on the bottom using smelt and mine was caught on a floating jig with a small nightcrawler.

Wife and I went to Sak yesterday and fished overnight. Yesterday evening the wife caught a bunch of 18 to 22 inch northern pike while I caught nothing. She was using smelt.

A bit before the storms hit I had a bite on my turkey liver and was reeling it in to see if my bait was stolen and a 38 inch or so northern hit it. After dark I had a hit on my crawler trying to catch a sucker for cut bait. it was not a sucker but rather an 9 lb channel cat. The wife caught a smaller channel cat about 2 lbs on smelt. then all we had was bait stealers.

when I cleaned the larger cat its stomach had something hard in it and I found a piece of a back bone from an animal about 2 inches long and a bit over 1 inch in diameter and I have no idea what kind of animal it came from and there was a chunk of liver in its stomach as well. got one of the dang bait stealers anyway.
