Very nice video once again Tony, thanks for taking us along on the journey. Guess the secret is out on Stuart since your original trip a few years back, almost every permit is gone for the Summer.


I definitely need to learn your walleye fishing techniques as well!!

Stuart might be my new favorite walleye lake. They are everywhere! I basically paddled around and dropped a line in a “fishy” looking spot and 9 times out of 10 I was pulling up a fish. It’ll be a few years before I head back that way though. I’ve spend a lot of time up in the crooked/iron/LLC area and it’s time to check out some newer waters. If my dad had it his way, we’d be going in Moose River North every year. I think next year we might go in the number chain towards Insula and Alice. By the way, congrats on the move and best of luck.

Great report!!!.. Stew is one of my favorites. And a great route to Iron if you wanna smell the roses....

The two loudest sounds known to man: a gun that goes bang when it is supposed to go click and a gun that goes click when it is supposed to go bang.

What a nice video. I am always sad when I leave the boundary waters. I found myself being sad when you guys had to leave! Maybe it was the music. Thanks for sharing. Pete

Without the bad times, the good times wouldn't seem so good.

I enjoyed all the fishing footage. :-)


I also noticed your tumblehome sticker.


Thanks for making and sharing the video.
