Cold, snow mark end of fishing season

By Bill Bartusek

The cold in October continued through the weekend. As we pulled off of Highway 169 North at Aitkin, we were greeted by big white snowflakes. We had come to do some fishing and pull the docks out for the year.

Brenda and I were joined by neighbor Steve Fisher and friends Tom & Kerry Ohnstad. It was chilly in the cabin so we started the woodstove and drove to town for a bite to eat. We also planned to celebrate Brenda, Steve and Tom's birthdays, which are all this week. It was still cold when I started the coffee the next morning.
