Sometimes a good old base camp is just best. The BWCA is so beautiful that it doesn't even matter if the fish bite or not...I need to visit the Bearskin Lake area at some point in the near future, clearly the timber is mature and beautiful over there. Wow.

Sounds like fun and you got to see some nice spots. A bad day fishing is still better than a good day at the office.

You're a lucky guy - two trips in two weeks! Nice report - enjoyed following along.

Thank you!


It did make packing rather easy but, still, it was a little hectic too. Not being in contact with my trip mates (while on previous trip) until a few days before we headed up. In the final analysis both trips were enjoyable and, indeed, I am thankful & grateful for being blessed with the opportunity to do both.
