The day started looking pretty good as the sun rose and the fog burned off the river. Gords fishing party arrived as the wind was beginning to pick up and after loading the gear and launching the boat we picked up a beaver cutting that jambed the impellor from producing power. Then we had to remove the boat from the river drop the quick clean and remove the cutting and launch again. The wind velocity had increased to unfishable conditions to read a rod in most of the river. Options had been reduced to Gords fishing party to a secluded area out of the wind that can produce Lake Sturgeon under these conditions. Gord's party boated a couple Lake Sturgeon and several Walleye by-catch.
