Awesome pics Ken. Love the supper pic, looks like a good way to eat. Where are the pics of the pan fried shorelunch? I haven't drooled yet today.

Hey, '81!

I had planned to take some pix of the fryin' fish, but it started to sprinkle just as the fish were going into the pan and had to keep my attention on that. Fifteen minutes of good fishing provided plenty for a big meal - biggest a 4# 'eye! Can see a little of the catch alongside the canoe.

Yeah, I saw em over there, but I wasn't gonna mention anything. wink Last time I cooked fish in the cast iron was on opener and just as I got the oil hot enough it started pouring rain. If someone were to have shot a photo, they would have seen the golf umbrella over me while I was cooking the fish. Worst part was the rain turned to snow. shocked

Nice Finn, Good to see your daughter share the stern seat with her BF!

I leave on a Canadian Agnes trip Friday & just finnished the packing... Can't sleep now so I thought I may add some Dissapointment Sunrise Images to this thread... Ma Nature did all the work here, mind you.

Will check in in 10 days with the trip in BWCA/ Duluth Forum.

PS. I see you took the Island that faces Diss. Mountain, these are taken from the other small island site.

Casaloma,

Some great shots! I was hoping for a little fog while I was up there, but it didn't happen. Makes for super composition!

    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one. 
    • Great pictures by all that have shared thus far!    Three of my best or my favorites anyway...        
    • I was out and about wetland areas this weekend and saw lots of waterfowl.  Many trumpeter swans, high flying tundra swans, gadwalls, shovelers, a few wood ducks, ring necks, hooded mergansers, , a pair of goldeneyes, and a loon.  I also saw many sandhill cranes.
