Few weeks ago, I had a last minute opportunity to do whatever I wanted, so, I decided to quickly pack my car, load my kayak, and head to the Northwoods. The weekend forecast called for clear sunny skies, and 90 degree weather. I was hoping to arrive with time to spare on a Friday night, so, I was racing the sun. Fall and Winter are on their way, because, the sun is starting to set at 8 PM and rise shortly after 6 AM. Need to take advantage of what strange summer we have left.

There were a few strong storms that passed through the area throughout the day, and I'm sure this tree fell casualty of the high winds. Luckily it left just enough space on one side of the dirt for me to pass. There would have been no way I would have been able to remove it. I do carry an SOG tomahawk in my trunk, but I would have been chopping away at that tree for quite a long time, if it came to that.

The smallies were en fuego, and still loving the brown fly I had so much success on them my last trip back in June. So enjoy some fish porn!
This place is special to me, and I pick up any trash I find along the way, I only found 1 can of Old Style this trip, but 1 piece of trash is usually all I find. Another good reason for the kayak. As I reached the end of what should be a 2 day wade, I hopped in my kayak and floated all the way back to where I launched....BRILLIANT.
|I really cannot get enough of these fish.|
