Saturday forecast was perfect so my wife and I decided it was finally a good chance to take her 79 year old parents out for a day of perching. We left Vermilion and headed East to the 1st pack of boats in front of the condos. Spent about an hour there with only a 5 lb catfish to show for it. The good news was it was my 79 year old mother in law that had boated the biggest fish of her life. I can tell you she was way more excited about it than i was. The lake was dead flat so we decided to run to Lorain where we had done very well on Wednesday evening. We set the anchor and i did my duty for the next 3 hours baiting, unhooking, untangling and boxing up a nice cooler of about fifty 8-10 inch perch. It was getting pretty hot about 1:30 and I could see it was taking a bit of a toll on my senior crew. I suggested we call it a day on perching and start trolling our way back. The crew agreed, so they reeled in and I packed up the gear. I knew I would be handling the set up so I just pulled out 4 rods with boards and a handfull of cranks. I did not even have the 2nd rod in when we hooked up with a giant sheep. I got rid of him and started over. Finally got all 4 rods in and 5 minutes later the same rod that had grabbed the sheep went off. Pam, the boss, grabbed the rod and the board went under. She was really struggling so I suggested she take the wheel and I sat my Father In Law down and handed him the rod. Slow and steady with no pumping was all I kept telling him. After 10 minutes this 33 inch, 10.56 pound super model was in the net. It was his 1st walleye ever! I suggested he take up golf now cause it doesn't get any better. It was a day I know I'll never forget.
