Hope you had a good one Jim. Getting a year (or a decade) older is mostly a state of mind with an ache and a pain thrown in once in a while - no big deal. This summer I interviewed a couple in their mid-80's who'd been fishing Rainy in their 14' boat/15 hp motor with nobody else in the boat. They caught a couple walleyes and a half dozen pike. That image is permanently stuck in the cranium. So now you know you have more than half of your fishing life ahead of you!!

Hey Mr. DNR! How ya doing up there? Cold?

I'd be more than grateful to reach the wonderful age of 80.

I definitely do not get enough people in the restaurant that like to talk fishing. If I can't fish, might as well talk about it. As of late Rugbyguy has been it.

So come in sometime and ask for Jim!

Keep the rods bendin'!!!

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      This bass likes 50F weather and a Senkos

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.
