    That was an awesome trip Thomas, we need to get back up there and do that again.

    Just looking at those pictures brings back so many great memories of that trip.

    I think I caught more fish on that trip then I had in my whole life before that. /forum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

    Hey Thomas, remember the night we decided to put a dent in the 6 cases of beer that we packed in??

    Remember the headache you had the next morning?? haha /forum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

    Man id love to go to a lake that is hidden out in the middle of no where that you have to travel through the wilderness to get to. Doesn't matter if it took half a day to get there. It would be well worth it IMO

    I have been to Ontario several times. I wish I had more pics, here is just a few.
    My family goes to North Eastern Ontarion to a fly-in resort. You can ride a wheeler in with your gear, but its 6miles in, and the trail is not really maintained.

    The flight in... you see nothing but small trees, lakes, moose and bears.
    [​IMG]

    The plane that usually hauls us and our gear. The Norseman.

    This is what gates of heaven look like, Im pretty sure.

    [​IMG]
    The only traffic you hear is float planes bringing people or bait into camp. Otherwise you might spot a boat or two from one of the other two resorts on the lake.

    We usually fly in around 5pm and it gets dark around 10. By the time we get our gear stowed in the cabin, and get our fishing gear put together we have just enough time to run just outside of camp to one of the close bays and snag a few for dinner.

    [​IMG] {Some these were kept so we could bring home.}

    Next few days are filled with fishing and some relaxation the way it was ment to be done.
    [​IMG] The limit is 4per person and only 1 over 18in. Although you only have to leave a 1in square piece of skin on and they cant tell how long a fish is once its cleaned.

    Other than that, one of my trips we were jiggin for eyes in about 6feet of water and I snagged this guy over the edge of the boat on a 12in walleye. Never had a hook in him, he just wouldnt let go of my fish, so I pulled both of them up and took them both in the boat.
    [​IMG]

    Im hoping to sneak back up there in early august this year, I have missed last 2 years in a row /forum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/mad.gif

    I'm working on getting some more pics. I have a ton on film but i think i'm missing some digital ones. I'll have to do some serious digging later. The pics are great guys, the weather here today started to give me the itch to get out on open water!!

    This is exactly what our group did in the Boundary Waters - Not necessarily North of the Border but darn close /forum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif.

    A great trip but our portage and paddle back to civilization was brutal. Three mile portage in ankle deep mud and black flies that I swear could literally pick you up they were so big. Not to mention the three mile paddle back to base camp bucking a 20 mph head wind.

    When we got back to camp and cleaned up we headed into Ely for a sandwich at a bar called Cranberries. First time I've ever walked into a bar to eat lunch and ended up eating supper there too - 12 hrs of eatin, playing pool and drinking made for a long trip back to Iowa the next day /forum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/sick.gif.

    All in all though, it was a great trip with excellent fishing and awesome views. Would recommend a BWCA trip to anyone who hasn't done one.

    Too far from where I hunt...
    I'm booking my annual Quetico canoe trip this week. We've done Boundary Waters in the past, but go into Ontario (Quetico) now to get away from other people. We'll spend about a week in, definately no bars nearby though, so we have to pack our whiskey;) Nothing better than the solitude, no people, no motors, AMAZING fishing. Some of the portages will make you question calling it a vacation, but once back on the water they're soon forgotten. Those flies do suck though, huh Willie? They've drawn blood from me several times.

    If you head up north in June you can ussually beat the black fly hatch. When i go to the BWCA/Quetico we usually shoot for June for this reason.
