An Adventurous Weekend

I traveled home for the weekend for our family Christmas party and was able to catch one heck of a time. No, really, I was able to get out on Mille Lacs Lake, only a few minutes from where I live, and get some prime time ice fishing in. When I began walking out to my early season spot, I was a bit skeptical in my strides because I knew the ice wasn’t great yet. It turns out there was about five inches of ice across the bay. After getting my portable fish house set up, it was no more than a minute before I had the first tug on my line as I pulled up a fat, 28 inch walleye. As the morning rolled on I kept reeling in more and more action. By eleven o’clock I had caught three walleye in the slot, six jumbo perch, and a monster 39 inch northern. I was able to get out and enjoy one of my favorite activities and was also able to catch a heck of a morning. Then we were off to Coon Rapids for our family Christmas celebration, which never fails to excite. It was really nice to be able to see my family for the first time since I left for Scholastica.

After our strung out, strenuous goodbye, we left Grandma’s house for home and the weather began to kick in, making driving a small hassle. Despite the snow, I was able to enjoy myself driving because of the thoughts of riding my snowmobile when we arrived home. There is not many things more entertaining than jumping on the sled and blazing around the back fields for a half our before heading back to Duluth. But my fun didn’t want to end just yet, as I stopped and helped a couple get out of the ditch/road before leavig my home town as people began to forget how to drive with the first snow, as they do every single year. But it is always nice to stop and aid someone who needs your help. As for me, I had an adventurous weekedend back home and have returned to the piles of homework as the swing of finals becomes full blast!
