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.

      What's your fish of choice to pursue? A weekday fish you could find after work are crappies, the basin bite on your local lake/lakes could make for a fun night bite. Panfish in general are fun to chase anytime, northerns are fun to target too but that's more of a weekend thing until we start gaining more daylight. Walleyes are punks to me and I've never been patient enough to target them unless I'm on LOW or Upper Red lol.

      How do you even get on this lake to ice fish?  Seems to be surrounded by Private land.

      Well Friday was a little slow picked up some nice gills here and there no crappies. Sat morning picked up a couple 10 inch gills and a couple more for the bucket here and there. Sat night 930 the crappies came through I caught 17 biggest was 12. Sunday picked a few more gills up for the bucket before heading off to a different lake for walleye. again fish wanted nothing to do with minnows only caught one with them. All other fish caught on a tungsten orange and green glow tipped with only a wax worm.   we were in 12 fow the sunfish were 2 off the bottom crappie cruising 4 off bottom Side note tried walleye tonight missed 3 of them! Now I remember why I don't walleye fish much stupid things

      I had the showdown as a hole hopping sonar but found I used my LX5 a lot more.  I went to the 7 and did not like it because it was bulky and hard to get used to both hopping holes and room inside one man Frabile.  Sold the 7 and bought another LX5 and do not see me going back to any other.  I have a wheel house and found is the only time I used the 7.  If you do a lot of fishing outside and like to move around.  I would stick with the 5, I now own two of them and don't see me using anything else.
