We like to take a little trip into the Boundary Waters every June. We tried the lottery to get an overnight motor permit up into Jackfish, but we didn't get one. Instead, we're headed to Snowbank. Because we don't have to portage, we're taking the big boat.
We hiked about a mile through the woods to this lake. Here is Steve setting up the first tip-up.
We took a weekend camping trip to chill out before my last big show of the season (which is Harvest Moon Festival in Ely).
There are a couple of ways to make "shore lunch" when you're out fishing for the day. The most common and traditional method is to fry the fish in a batter.
You'd think that we're already "away from it all" by living here. But you know, there are always those things to keep you busy when you are home. Including all of that stuff in your head.
I'm not saying you should catch a fish like this, but you really should get out fishing and catch something, catch anything.
