It’s Memorial Day weekend, the official kickoff of the summer season.

It’s also time to remember the men and women who are serving and who have ever served in the U.S. military. The older I get the more I appreciate all of you and I thank you for keeping guard and putting your lives on the line for us. I now realize we have to protect what we have, and without the willingness of those in the service, we would be in a lot worse shape.


So let’s enjoy this holiday weekend and thank God for what we have and who we have.

As for the fishing, it has been pretty good, and to date, a 26.5-inch walleye has been our big fish — it was caught on a Northland Fireball jig (perch color) and a minnow.

Bass season opens Saturday and there should be some real hogs caught as some are still with eggs, I would guess.

A spinner bait is going to catch you some bass, northern and maybe a walleye. The times they are a changing.
