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.

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
