Dug some worms and after dinner Geo drove me over to rnest Johnis and I took the canoe and fished in the river and caught five large yellow perch and three small ones, when he came I paddled around a couple of times trolling for pickerels and didn’t get a strike.
Saw a large bass jump twice and some other larger fish once.
Ski went up on the hill to take care of Hank tonight.
Geo and Eleanor went out tonight.
