Fishing on Lake Calhoun, late fall

Thanksgiving Day in Minneapolis started off nice and balmy. But the break in the weather didn’t last. By mid-afternoon, the wind had kicked into a blustery gear and the temperature was falling fast. Still, two guys stuck it out on their fishing boat in Lake Calhoun. Were they having any luck? Hard to tell from this picture. One thing for sure, there was no competition from other fishermen.

Snow started falling not long afterwards. By then, I was at my parents’ house in the distant suburbs, settling in for the Thanksgiving feast. The snow fell harder as the day wore on into the evening. When I went out to my car, along about 10 p.m., it was coated with ice and snow. Out came the ice scraper. Driving was not bad, however. Very little actual snow accumulation.

On the way home, I thought about those two guys out pressing their luck for a last-minute fishing excursion on Calhoun. I thought about fishing in late November in Minnesota. I thought about all the fish not yet caught. I thought it was probably a fine idea, to go fishing one last time for the season on Thanksgiving Day 2012 on a city lake in Minneapolis.
