This is our second trip to the BWCA. Last year we looked like a couple of Paris Hilton's with all the junk we brought. :) We learned our lesson though and this year was alot better. We arrived Friday night, June 29th at about 8:00pm via my friend’s private plane. It’s the only way to travel! We grabbed some chow at the Ely Steakhouse and bunked at Voyageur North Outfitters.
Day 2 of 5
Sunday, July 01, 2007 - Our plan was to get up at 5am on Sunday and get fishing right away, but we decided to sleep in after a long hard day traveling in. After a little breakfast we were on the water fishing. We started catching smallies on crankbaits – infrequently. Back to the campsite for late lunch and with slightly darkening skies we were back on the water. More smallmouth on crank baits and it rained on us for about an hour. That killed any desire for a fish fry so we cooked up one of our freeze dried dinners. Another fire with vodka and fruit drink finished off the night.
