Opening update

Just a quick photo update on opening week.  Early season big trout action was “on” for most of the week…..some good walleye and pike as well.  Bill and Andryea did the Clearwater portage and had the lake to themselves (the advantage of low water!).   Ed Sutfin scored three big trout in one day on VBay…..36 inches being the biggest.  Cabin 4 is looking good with just some finishing touches needed in the porch.

Here’s what I’m talking about!…

First trout of the season….Mary L. and a 32 inch chilly release on opening day!


Bill looking good!
