Spent the last week on one of the finest fishing lakes in Minnesota, Rainy Lake. Here are just a few images from the week. We were catching fish so I didn't have all that much time for photos smile

Looks like a great time Dan. That shot of you with the fish looks a little like Wilson from "Home Improvement".

LOL, that was my intent Mike! Got to keep my identity secret! I should have photo shopped that hood so it covered a bit more!

Nice fish, Wilson. grin Nice shots to boot. It must be tough for fishing to be so good that you don't have much time to pick up the camera. smile

Awesome shots Dan. My favorites are #1 and #8. Love the way the light reflects through the fishing line in #8.

Those look great! Really liked the 6th one. Love how the light bounce of the lower clouds as the sun sets.

I love rainy lake, fished it alot this summer and the middle of july was my first time ever fishing it! I vote for Rainy Lake as one of the best places on earth. I wish it was next July right now.

Did you fly over our wing spot in Savage last night? You missed a good time Mr. Selleck! Swartzy was in rare form!

    • Moved my fan today  cut heat up time in half very noticeable improvement 
    • Well, she's still right, you know..
    • Went out pheasant hunting today and ran into a trapper setting 330s along a creek for beaver .  I'm not much into trapping but know how these things work, and after having a civilized conversation with him his were all in the water and he let know where they were located so at least the pooch wouldn't get his leg caught in it. don't feel bad, he hasn't caught much either . 
    • That may be, but it sounds a lot like "I didn't get a job" butthurt.  That grifter would be singing the praises of Trump's genius if she was on the payroll.   Eh, why not?  When they aren't taking credit for things they had nothing to do with, they are taking blame for things they had nothing to do with. Pence is still the governor of Indiana
    • sounds like from animals that eat meat. 
    • Huh?  Sorry,  I should have known better.
    • Great idea, have you looked into what it would take? 
    • I think what fish meant was it might not hurt to allow more than 60 days for a season in states like MN.   When the birds are late we can still have a chance at the northern birds.  If freeze up and the flights are early, the longer season won't matter.  There won't be much if anything to shoot.   I get what you're saying about lengthening the gap, but that's a roll of the dice since we have little chance of knowing when freeze up will get those late birds moving.  How long do you make the gap?   After a year in my new area of the state I can adjust my expectations and chase more wisely next year.  This year I was anticipating much better.  I think that's the worst part - the big push being the big let down.
    • Wool socks are a must, they insulate even if wet. Cotton socks in any warm boot will make your feet cold. The warmth of the boot while you are active make your feet sweat. I have the LaCross Iceman from a couple decades ago, still no need to go buy something different.
    • Some wild meat can have trichinosis.  Domestic pork no longer has it. I'm pretty sure that venison doesn't have a parasite issue.
