Last Friday my wife Eileen and I pulled the Kingfisher over to Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho. Here we were met by her sister Diane and her husband Tom Verschueren, who live in Dryden, and her other sister Karen Heim and her daughter Jessica who live in Montana. We had rented a house with a dock and were excited to be back on this beautiful lake. Once settled in we took the boat to the spot where we caught a bunch of big kokanee last year. Turns out we were late for the kokanee fishing. We got lots of bites and saw lots of fish on the surface, but they were really small. Just in case we were too late for the kokanee, I had brought along my bass boxes and a few spinning rods, so the next couple of days were spent casting next to the docks in some of the bays. Turns out there are lots of smallmouth bass in the lake. We didn’t catch anything big, but we had enough action to make it fun. I was glad I brought the gear along. We all enjoyed the fishing and had so many great meals we will very likely do this again next year.
I am posing with “Puddles”, a specially trained dog that can sniff out invasive zebra mussels at the Washington check point near Spokane.
