Earlier in the week Taylor had asked me if I wanted to go fishing with him in southern Minnesota on Sunday. He picked me up at my place around 6am and along with Foxy we were on our way.
There is a Mcdonald's restaurant just off 52 near Zumbrota. It has become tradition for us to stop here on our way down.
I was surprised to still see some traces from the last Ice Age including the Saber Toothed Jack Russell on the bottom left.
The next spot we came to I caught my first tout of the day on the streamer using Ryan's techniques. I think my usual jerk-strip retrieve is probably a little too aggressive for lethargic trout. I am happy to have a new weapon in my arsenal.
I was so happy. Today was also the first day I got to try out the Filson wading jacket that my parents got me for Christmas. I was so warm and dry throughout the day. Thanks Mom and Dad for the jacket and the superior genetics. Look at that smile. :)
