It’s going to be a very hot day here in Northern Utah.  So, the Weasel, Bob and I are heading out for a walleye adventure early.  Will post up results when we get back!

Home by 10:30 a.m. and man is it HOT outside!  COOKIN!

The three of us fished with nearly identical lures today.  We tried trolling with an electric motor which worked fine for about 10 minutes and then the battery died.  So, we cranked up the 8 hp and trolled too fast for most walleye fishermen.  It was all we could do however.

The bite was pretty good until the sun hit the water and then things slowed wayyyy down.  I think there was only one bite after about 8:30 a.m.

As  what seems to be a usual occurrence Bob paid out 4 quarters.  Two to me and two to the Weasel.  So, what does that mean?  Weasel and I each caught two fish.  One cat and one walleye each.

The picture does not do justice to the size of the fish.  I think they each weighed about two pounds.  We missed several bites (Weasel and I that is).  Bob was determined to catch a fish on what I called a chandelier in a cat house.  He finally traded for something that looked more like a fish lure on our last pass, but by then the bite was completely dead.

All in all it was a great day on the lake.
