Week ending September 5th:
We have a group of guests in this week who have traveled all the way from China to be here. They are preparing some of their traditional dishes as an appetizer. Here is Lan and Yan preparing a spicy fish dish. It was spicy, but also very flavorful and delicious!
The weather this week is in the low 80's during the daytime, and in the 60's overnight. A hint of fall is in the air, and there is definitely color changes in the landscape, with lots of golden leaves beginning to appear.
The fishing has been active with many eating-size walleye, crappie, northern and bass being caught. Walleyes are currently in 12 - 18 feet of water on rock and reef. Northerns are in 8 - 10 feet of water; red and white spinnerbaits are effective. Muskies are in pencil reed and on rock reefs, sitting in 2 - 3 feet of water.
