Bill Watkin’s Family Trip July 19-26, 2013

I have been conversing with Bill for a good part of the winter about him bringing his daughter’s, their husbands, and grand kids to Rainy Lake Houseboats for a week. In the past I have fished with Bill during the month of  May.

Kevin Erickson and I met them at the Idle Hour Bay mooring site at 8:00 Am Sunday morning. Kevin took Bill, his daughter Tiffen and 5 year old grandson Willum. I took Tom, Matt and Margaret and granddaughter Sophi. We were blessed with another beautiful Rainy Lake day.  I went east of the houseboat and  Kevin went north. Fishing was good with the same baits and patterns intact as the day before.

We met Kevin out on the water about noon and oh boy was Willum ever excited. He and Kevin had hit it off really well. Everyone had caught a lot of fish and you could just feel the excitement.

The afternoon was every bit as good as the morning. Fishing was incredible, we even got Tom to put on a leech.

I always enjoy my time with Bill, it was absolutely wonderful to meet his family.
