WTS Spring Fall 97 - Week2


Fall 1997 - Week2
October 11-12


Mike Goodrich  John Meyers   Dave Borchelt  Larry Clark  Scott Borchelt  Garland Hutto

 I can't remember how many fish were caught this time but it was a great year.  Jim Perrine had come up the weekend before and could not come this weekend.  It seems he told most everyone that the Official Whisting Tout Society (WTS) was on 10/12.  However, he ended up switching the dates without much notice.  Therefore, a WTS members came up on both weekends for good fishing and good fun.  Only Scott Borchelt was able to attend both weekends to record the events.   In addition, Bear Lakes most recent rookie, Garland Hutto, decided he had so much fun in Canada that he had to extend the summer and join us in Kaleva for salmon fishing.   This is quite a feat considering he came all the way from Southern Alabama!   But perhpas the most important event of this weekend happened when Charter Member Larry Clark landed his FIRST salmon.  Thats 19 years of fishing for the elusive salmon.  I guess that's why we call it FISHING and not CATCHING.  Good Job Larry!  If anyone has a picture of the this most important salmon, please send me a copy so I can add it to this page.  Enjoy the pictures and please submit your stories of this weekend for me to add.
