Nice report! Sounds like you had a lot of great fishing. I'd love to see the video of the fish inhaling the bait. Did I miss the link?



Never criticize someone until you walk a mile in their shoes....by then you'll be a mile away and they will be shoeless!

Outstanding! Heartening to see two generations spending that much time together and still smiling at the end! Great photos, too...

Loved the part about "looks like my wife is smiling but she wasn't that happy" or something like that... Got a kick out of that one.
Anyway, great report, and awesome that you and your folks went.
We did all our own food also for five day trip and well worth the time preparing. Great Report.

Glad you posted your report mark. The background in this picture matches one of yours. Look familiar?

That sunset picture of yours from day 5 is WOW!

Enjoyed this fine report. Losing that monster was tough. You'll always wonder what it was. But your Mom looks like she had a thrill with that big pike. I'm envious of you because your family seems to really enjoy these trips. Hope there's many more for you guys.
