Loved the report and the pics! It's so cool that your little guys go with you! And seeing them paddle and help out is awesome!

I'm bringing my 9yo daughter with in a few weeks for her first trip. Can't wait!

Great to see that everyone got on some fish. I bet the kids are "hooked"

Nice report. Thanks. I got caught out in those conditions too. Had to be a bit hairy with the munchkins in the boat.

Great report! Sure wish I would have known about the BW when our kids were small. Looks like you guys had a good time.

Nice trip report. I was there during the same period and we were also caught in the wind and rain on Knife. It was pretty scary for a while glad all turned out OK. Thanks for sharing.

I loved this trip report and the pictures of Dalen and Landon. The pictures are so precious. I, too, didn't know about the BW when our boys were young so we won't be able to give them that experience. Your boys look like two kids on Christmas morning, all week long. No better gift to give your kids!

Thanks for the replies everyone. If you have the chance to do it I would strongly encourage introducing a kid to the BW. The smiles they put on our faces far and away outweighs the fact that tripping with them changes the way we would usually do a few things. I would also like to share one more pic that got left out while typing up my report. It is a pic that Pat took of Scott as they were laker fishing the first night on Knife Lake.

Thanks for the report. A great adventure for your young boys that they'll remember for the rest of their lives.

Great report. My daughter's youngest son turns 3 in February and they're thinking its time for his first trip next year, so it was fun reading your report.
I've made two trips into Knife and both were great.
