There's hundreds of stories I could tell, but I'm just going to share some of the pictures and let them speak for the trip.

All the smallies in these pictures were 18.5+" with some that are truly monsters!

The trip was nothing short of awesome!! The weather was great and as you can see the fish cooperated as well. We went in through the Mudro Lake access and made it as far as Thursday Bay on Crooked Lake, which lies on the Canadian Border. Waterfalls, cliff jumping, loons, deer, Indian pictographs, and acrobatic pike and smallmouth bass all made the trip great. I can't wait to go back next year!!

Wow...that is all I have to say. I am extremely jealous. I am ashamed to say that I have never been on a BWCA fishing trip. I would LOVE to go next year. Give me a shout if you want to get a few more guys on next years trip.

PS...How were the biting flies?

Great pictures guys...those are the best trips..especially when shared by good buddies.

This coming ice fishing season i'm taking 6 buddies on a late ice fishin trip to LOTW for northerns. 5 of the 6 have never stepped foot on a frozen lake smile.gif They are in for a real treat.

The fishing looked awesome for you guys...but as i'm sure you can attest to...it's the camping/cooking and joking around that makes trips so memorable. It certainly helps when the fish cooperate.

Your right about that. We all suffered through a lot of hard work with canoeing and portages, bugs, bags, gear, weather, only to reap the rewards of spending invaluable time together in some of the most pristine wilderness in the United States/Canada. Most of the pictures I share deal with fish and fishing, but most of the memories I have could never be told with pictures and usually have nothing to do with fishing.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
