Trip Introduction:
Went from Crab to Little Crab, then Lunetta, then Schlamm, then Glenmore, then back to Little Crab and EP4. 6 days - 5 nights. Fishing was awesome for largemouth, smallies, pike. On Glenmore, the walleye were really too big - tried to catch smaller ones for dinner (not a bad problem to have!). Schlamm not too good for fishing - lake is mostly choked with lily pads. All campsites were very nice. Hi to Karen! Sorry you got bit by a deer fly ... Ouch! Hope your trip was fun and safe.
