2000 Menu For Nineteenth Annual
Woman Lake Spring Trip

This years planning meeting was very well attended at the Page Sports Bar, in Bloomington. Only Morrice, Sikora, and Boettcher did not attend. It was generally decided that due to the early spring and ice out in Minnesota, we would go "up north" the week of the opener.

Juris and I decided to go up on Sunday the 14th instead of the opener, Saturday May 13th, to avoid the "up north" traffic jams. (As it turned out, the opener was very cold and extremely windy and those that ventured out, soon returned cold, wet, windblown and fishless). The rest of the group would wander in and out as their schedules would permit, whereas Juris and I schedule fishing first, then everything else.

The menu this year will favor robust and hearty meals, high in protein and taste, not necessarily low in fat (but reasonable amounts) and lower in carbohydrates, than in past years, which stressed very low fat. In addition to the meal ground-rules for personal use items, each fisherperson will have to provide for their own breakfast, snacks and lunch. Bottom line, only evening meals are being provided as a group cost.

Juris and Andrew wanted to leave early and agreed to clean up the cabin while Bruce and I went fishing. As it turned out it was the best catching of the trip, with Bruce catching the largest walleye (26 1/2-inches) and I caught the largest northern (30-inches). See our new feature: Woman Lake Chronicles for the details. Bruce and I finished cleaning (which took another two hours), closed the cabin and left for home.
