Day 2 started off a little slow but we did put 3 more walleye on the stringer. As the week went on it was apparent that Rob and myself were really the only two that were here to fish. Everyone else was happy fishing a little, hiking around camp, and just relaxing in a hammock or around the campfire. That was fine with me since everyone else has different reasons for tripping I suppose. The other guys did manage a few smaller pike and one nice smallmouth so there was going to be plenty that evening for dinner. I love fried fish but there is something magical about fresh walleye while camping in the BWCA. It went down so smooth with sides of ramen noodles and corn. A little Cajun spice was added to the noodles for a little extra kick. Fishing after dinner was slow and it was easy to see that we really weren’t in tune with the walleyes just yet.
