Great shot you got of the black wolf on the cover of the Outdoor News. Not very often you have a moment like that!

Thanks, Chris! grin.gif

Threeball, it ether took 4 1/2 years or five seconds, depending on how you look at the time investment. I've been up here for 4 1/2 years trying to get pictures of wild wolves (have managed it one other time over a deer kill but not from close up). But I only spent a total of five seconds with my finger depressing the shutter for blackie here. grin.gif

Were you set up in a spot for hours or were you just lucky that day?

Oh, it was totally luck. I was parked just off the Fernberg. Pulled over to photograph an interesting segment of bark and the wolf came trotting along. Saw me the whole way. Posed at 20 yards, then as my first burst of images was writing to the CF card, she took a few steps forward, dropped her head and gave me that classic stare. There are a couple more images from that encounter, as well as a more full account of the happening, over on the FM photo sharing board under the title: Black wolf of the Fernberg.

But I'll tell you, even if I was set up in that spot for hours on end, it'd still be luck that a wolf decided not only to visit, but to make itself visible for the time it takes to get clear photos. I've seen lots of wolves since moving up here, but they never hang around. Unwilling models, I guess. grin.gif

Some people are so lucky, just being in the right place at the right time? Or are you out everyday making your own luck? Just saw the picture today. Nice

Took a look at the photos on the photo sharing forum. Awesome shots there Catfish. Gotta take a lot of time in the woods to get that close to a wolf.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      On our way up for the weekend.  Live or frozen shiners?   Best place to get them?  thanks

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.
