Fall Camp Out: Banks Lake - 9/7-11

The smoke cleared for our weekend at Coulee Playland. Thursday was still pretty grey, but the visibility got a little better on Friday and a whole lot better on Saturday. The winds on Saturday held off long enough for our annual fishing contest. Doug S took our cash pot while Sharon V took the trophy. In general fishing was slow over the weekend. Ken V and Stan J had the most productive day on Sunday catching 6 walleyes and a 12 inch perch between the two of them. The tackle shop at Coulee Playland confirmed our experience saying that fishing has been slow the last few weeks. The big weather change over the weekend probably didn't help matters, but it was nice to get rid of the smoke.

Ken V shows us his catch from Sunday at Banks Lake. 4 walleyes and a fat 12 inch perch.
