We left early Tuesday afternoon for a four day trip to one of our favorite lakes. This is a small, isolated lake. Arrived about 4:00 PM Tuesday and stayed until Friday morning. There were no other people camping. Two fishermen came in for a couple of hours on Wednesday. That was it. We had the lake to ourselves all week. Fished Tuesday evening. There was rain and thunderstorms on Wednesday, but still got out fishing three times for almost eight hours. Took my new Jon boat. Caught and released most of the fish, but also cooked over the open fire. We saw lots of animals, a deer near the campsite, a beaver splashing it tail, an osprey, loons, a blue heron and on the last day a moose swam the full length of the lake. I cooked up a fish on the campfire Thursday night. It was a great fishing and camping trip.
