Trip Introduction:
Easier trip for my wife's first time...although, could've been a long/hard trip if 1 of only 2 campsites not available on Vern Lake. Weather mid 70s during day and low 60s at night (great to sleep). Only 30-40mins of bugs during twilight time. Fishing was poor, but my wife caught biggest small mouth ever...5 pounds!!
