Well we got the invite from Dirty Bert to go do some fishing in the interior. I found it odd that he wouldn't divulge the true name of the lake or it's location, but odder still was the black sacks we had to wear over our head so we'd never find our way back there! :D

I can now understand the secrecy surrounding this awesome place

The lake is like glass at times.

We did a quick set up of camp in a really nice spot. Tammy and I had waterfront property![36]

We chilled for a little while at camp before we hit the water.

We fished for about 2 or three hours and landed about 5 nice trout around 4 - 6 pounds. Tammy even caught her first fish ever and it was beauty.

We had to call it a night as it was starting to get dark and Tammy was back at camp cooking dinner for us.

This morning when we got up, it was a perfect day. The sun was shining the lake was calling

Riley waited patiently for us to return

and waited.....

and waited.......

The reason we were gone so long was Bert caught a beauty of a rainbow that was just shy of 2 feet and weighed at least 10 pounds

The beast stripped off about 30 feet of his line 3 separate times and gave one hell of a fight, but after what seemed like eternity, Bert was able to land it!

He was so moved by it that it brought a tear to his eye

The tears were soon replaced with a happy happy joy joy dance

I was really happy for Bert and congratulated him on such a fine catch!

Riley was even impressed

Now the sad part of this story is the camera that I had in the boat with us had all the best shots of the fish we caught. (well Bert and Tammy caught) but when I downloaded them, they were all corrupted. I'm really sorry about that Bert & Tammy, we'll just have to go back and catch more![36]
