    I used to do a lot too. I could start in a boat at sunrise and drop the quitters off at the dock in the afternoon (and resupply the cooler and bait bucket) and then go out for the evening fishing till after dark.

    Those were the days.
    Bought a canoe and a jon boat this spring. Bass watchout.

    all over kansas city are small ponds and lakes, I used to keep a rod and tackle box onmy van for those coupla hours here and there waiting on call, and lunch time.
    Have a great time and remember,
    If ya caught fish every time it would be called catching not fishing.

    Ok, here we go.

    We left Saturday morning from Bemidji, Mn. After a long delay at the border, and another 3 hours up in Canada, we arrived at the Moosehorn Lodge. THIS PLACE IS THE BEST! great people.

    I fished off the dock that night and caught 5 Walleyes right there, biggest was 17".



    Sunday morning we headed out to the Frog Rapids area, caught a couple including a 25" by Lon in the other boat. They headed in but Myself and Cory stayed out till dark. Caught about 15, alot in the slot though (18-21)

    So Monday morning came around, we ran into a guide who had an opening cause of a last minute cancel, thanks whoever you are. The Guides name is Collin, he works for Moosehorn. It was POURING and near 35 mph winds, but I was ready. After 2 stops, he had us on Eyes. During the day both boats had maybe 50 Eyes, biggest was my 23"

    . So after a tough wet morning we set up for shore lunch. There was a interesting looking bay with alot of logs in it, so I tossed a Long cast Rapala into the area, first cast BANG. 36 1/2" Pike

    Slot is 28-36 but I let er go. Went back, maybe 2 casts later BANG another which I never seen, was taking drag like the first. Got wound up in that log jam . Tried but couldnt get at it.
    Here is another nice pike caught earlier.

    After lunch, the fun began. Going for Eyes We all seen this 42" Pike come up to the boat and NAIL the jig Cory was reeling in. Very cool! After a long fight we got it, and of course released it.


    An Hour later the 43 came on a spoon, had a huge cut on the back from a prop ot another fish?! Here is Lons big fish.


    Awesome time, I went out looking for a Laker that night, was marking tons of fish in 50' of water, Im thinking cool. WALLEYE! The darkest ones Ive seen. Anyways, awesome trip .
