The Big One

Saturday August 15th 2009 Big Balsam Camp and Resort

P1040414

Mike was fishing with Mike Schilling on Saturday, and Mike snagged a nice northern.  There was a time Mike would not fish for, clean or eat a northern, but now he is a big game fisherman.  He will even eat them if fixed right.  I would rather fish for crappies and sunfish. 

It is still very hot and humid.  I’m not doing to well in this weather, melting a little everyday.  The kids are loving it perfect for swimming. 

We will be leaving on Sunday morning to head back to the cities for my shoulder surgery on Monday.  I want this over with, it will be nice to have 2 working arms again.

Oh yes, Mike’s Saturday evening sunset picture.

So where's the picture of this "nice northern"? That thing Mike is holding up looks like bait. You folks need to come north and we'll take you fishing but be warned - we don't let those slimy slough snakes in the boat.

Actual Bob,that fish had to get put back. It was 26 inches,sorry I dont know the metic conversation, there is a slot of 24 to 36 must be released. Ive heard those north of the border fish "storys".Was great to see you two at the rally,play safe and drive careful.
