Trip Introduction:
Entry point easy to get into - parking good, weather nice. Day two high water got to skip a 10 rod portage, 60 and 70 rod portages tough going, happy to find a good camp Day Three good day of fishing on Jack Mok Bay lot of bass, nice keepers, and a Northern. Bass were good eats. Day Four over to Lake Brule - high winds, canoeing was challenge but fun. Found some walleye's, but have difficulty landing them. More wind on way back made it even more of a challenge but we were up for it Day five - paddle out leaving from entry point 41 - more wind, and rain. Worse weather of the week, great experience! will go back again
