Little Gabbro Fishing Loop
Unfortunately, we get a late start due to travel arrangements. My brother arrives in Minneapolis/St.Paul airport at 0415 after an all-nighter. We compare gear, toss out duplicates and head out to Ely. The folks at Voyager North are very knowledgeable and point out good fishing spots. We pick up our canoe and head out to Little Gabbro entry. The weather is beautiful and our first(195 rod) of eight portages goes without a hitch.
We catch a few Northern while trolling silver/black rapalas through Little Gabbro and Gabbro. Like an idiot, I try to remove a treble hook bare-handed and get a hook buried deep in my right index finger. A few tylenol and some slicing and dicing get it out and we're on our way. We make camp in Bald Eagle and feast on steak fajitas and enjoy a wonderful sunset. Tequila for dessert.
