I enjoyed reading your trip report. I made so many personal connections during the read. I could picture all the places you were on your trip because that is where we have traveled through the past few years. I also loved all the fishing details. But the biggest connection was the mention of being totally closed off from the real world. As we exited the Q this past year, we were told of the death of our son's 1/2 brother (a drowning victim) and the death of the older gentleman in the Q. I always loved the fact that when you are in the wilderness you are truly shut off from the real world. However, when the real world slaps you in the face upon return, it is quite harsh. I prefer the gentle slide back into reality. We all remember where we were that morning. I wish my memory was as sweet as yours...being alone in the Q with nature. Thanks for the report.

Great report Mike, I like how you write. I would like to ask a couple of questions, Did you use a leader with the Lucky 13? I would think you would be afraid to loose it if you did not use a leader. One more question, How did you fish the lucky 13, slow retrieve, fast retrieve, pop the lure, thanks for your help.

Thanks for the report, Mike. It must have been a surreal end to your first solo.

I use a thin titanium leader with the lure. 6 inches I think it is. You fish the lure just like a Pop-R. Pop....Pop....Pause.
