Fishing and Photography
Yesterday was a beautiful blue sky day on the Gunflint Trail. I had a list of work to get done that needed to be done sooner rather than later because the kids had a double header in town beginning at 4:30pm. I had barely started on my list when Josh started begging to go fishing.
Mike wasn’t in a position to be able to take Josh fishing so I was his second choice. Grandma Darlene was an option but she was at her cabin and had taken him on Saturday night. He started the gathering process since nothing is put together or stays put together. Poles, needle nose, lures, leeches, stringer, sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, life vests and of course the camera.
We slowly made our way down to the dock with a million interruptions before we actually got from the lodge into the canoe. Then it still took us awhile before we actually paddled away from the dock. The water was dead calm and the temperature warm and gorgeous.
We trolled then set up with slip bobbers. We caught a nice smallmouh bass and then got distracted by an airshow in the distance. Seagulls and eagles were swarming down in a bay and we went from being anglers to photographers.
You’ll have to check out facebook later to see the photos and video of the private airshow.
