29 inch Walleye! That's respectable in anybody's book. Thanks for the report, good reading.

Great Trip report. Took my 75 year old dad for his inaugural BWCA trip on the that route reversed. It was a short trip too but one I will never forget. He has been able to get out twice more with me and hopefully he will be up for another one this spring.

I took my Dad when he was 66. Looks like your Dad had a real good time. It's a shame he didn't get a pic with that big northern. The same thing happened to me when I took my Dad. We couldn't boat a huge northern. Those orange lip grabbers from Cabelas would of helped both of us in that situation.


Hopefully you guys can do it again. Thanks for posting.

Looks like you had a great time. And made great memories.

Thanks for the nice comments. I'm thinking next year will be going the other way and taking the boys for their first trip, they're 9 and 6. We'll have to get out and do some practice paddling to see if they could handle it.
