Trip Introduction:
We had a lot of fun. We had a lot of paddling and alot of hiking, but it was well worth it.
Day 1 of 8
Friday, May 18, 2007-We were up by 5:15 this morning and eating in the restaurant. We went to the outfitters got changed, got 1 lb. of leeches and we were on out way to Oyster Lake. We had a 3 long portages and a couple of shorter ones. The camp we originally wanted was already taken so we went across the lake to the peninsula and stayed there. We set up camp at around 6:00. I loved our campsite, we had water on both sides of us. On the north side of the peninsula we caught a 40" pike, a 5 lb. 3 oz. smallmouth and many other smaller fish. On the south side we never caught anything huge but we caught a lot of them. We kept about 9 smallmouth and had a good dinner. We went to bed early knowing we had a big day of fishing ahead of us.
