Trip Introduction:
My trip is with my friend because my brother is fishing up on leech lake so we had to try and beat him in catching more fish.
We just got out and it was really windy. In trout lake we passed about 5 miles in 1 hour because the waves were 2-3 feet high. My brother on leech lake did not catch any walleye and we caught over ten on pine lake. That means we won. My friend's didn’t catch a walleye but he caught a sunfish that was smaller than the lure he was using. My friend’s dad was with us and he broke a pole, but he caught his first walleye. We had a good time and it wasn’t that bad portaging the mile into pine lake.
