Boundary Waters Fishing Fun
This past week we’ve had some gorgeous weather for being out in the Boundary Waters. My son Josh has been taking advantage of the sunny skies and has been spending as much time as possible fishing in the BWCA. He no longer needs me to accompany him in the boat but I received a token invite to go onto Saganaga with him the other day. It was the 90+ degree day and the water was as flat and calm as I’ve ever seen in it. In spite of the heat and ripple free water we were able to land two fish. He caught a small lake trout and a big northern pike.
The rest of the week Josh has had a friend or a Voyageur Crew member to fish with so I’ve lost my spot in the boat. It’s great to see him enjoying fishing so much as I’d much rather him be outside in the boat than inside on an electronic gadget. The smallmouth bass have really started to bite this week, I guess the water is finally warm enough. Some spots on Saganaga my depth finder was recording water surface temperatures of 74 degrees! That’s hot for the big lake.
I have an opportunity to go fishing with Josh and his friend today, so I better get off of the computer and grab my pole. I have to take advantage of the invitations while they last.
