Alex and I headed for Baudette on Sunday, March 3, 2013 leaving about 8:30 am. We arrived at Sportsmen's Lodge about 2 pm, loaded our stuff into the snow cat and headed out 10 miles onto the big lake. We arrived at our happy home for the next 3 days, Otter House. Alex not only caught many nice sized walleyes, but a bourbot, 3 ciscos, and 3 keeper saugers. Last year was a bust with 40-50 degree temps and melting snow leaving deep puddles everywhere on the lake. This year was more seasonable and in fact, we were treated to a nice 8" snowstorm on our last day. Driving home was a chore, with heavy snow on the highway, but thank the Lord, we made it home safely about 5:15 pm. The trip festivities ended with a fish cleaning marathon in grandpa's basement.
