Hey Mr. Ernst, I Guess They Do Bite Without A Twister Tail

Travis Frank

travis fishin winter 06 031.jpg2 Ernsts, and a Dawn Juan, and you have the recipe for a great night on the water.  It seems like i've been telling the same story over and over the last few trips out, but the bite continues to be great.  We hit the water a little later this evening assuming the bite would start towards sunset, but to our amazement the fish were going crazy as soon as we pulled up.  I don't like admitting to it but for the first time that I can remember the Ernsts, (yes Mike and Doug) actually put the whoopin to me.  It isn't something i'm proud of, however I will get over it and I will fish another day.  There was definitely a curse for the front of the boat, because out of the 11 walleyes boated, only 2 were caught by Dawn and myself.  Great job Ernsts, and thanks to all 3 of you for the fun night on the water.  I can't wait to do it again.
