Day 2 we were up early with the rain and wind. Crawled back in until it subsided a little. Then it was off for some more fishing. Hit the same island, but ont he east side as the wind had shifted from the previous day. Same results. We got caught in some drizzle, and then saw the wall of rain coming. We got close to shore and anchored and sat in the down pour which continued on and off for a while. Headed in to dry off in the tent for a while before going back out for the evening fishing run. Fished the island again and the rocks to the west of it. Caught one 20" smallie and a lot of 9-15" eyes. Saw a loon on the way in and were able to get within 15 feet of it. Unfortunately our cameras were tucked away because of the rain. Headed in for the night and were treated to some stars as the clouds broke up a little as dark set in.
