Headed out to wickiup to meet up with TT friday after work. got a late start but made it in time to get set up before dark. started raining not to long after i got there. Did some serious campfireing(you can decide what that consist of) and made it on the water saturday morning with 2 hours of sleep and had a line in before just before 5 am. trolled rapalas until noon is without anything. hit every spot i knew to produce with nothing. after doing a full recon around the entire lake we started to head for camp. switched up to a fender and worm and hit a few spots on the way in. had a fw kokes on but they ripped the hooks out showing us how acrobatic they can be. Did some firewood rounding up and set up a shooting range. shot my 40 and broke in my new kimber ultra carry II 45. tryed to work on TT's motor but had a lack of tools to fix it so we left him on the bank and did an evening rapala troll and decided to see how close i coukld get to craine. made it about halfway to the dam. Decided to try a fender and worm in the shallows and we picked up a few small browns. lost a few at the boat and had several hits. managed to keep a 13 incher and a 2 1/2 lber for my self. trolled down the arm until to dark to fish and had bfishing drive the boat back to camp in the blackness while i surveyed for collisions. Did some more campfireing and over slept so got a late start in the morning. trolled from 8 until noon and managd to pick up a 2 1/4 lber right away. after we packed up we set up another shooting ranged and blasted off the rest of the ammo before heading home. dont think i had a sober momemt from friday afternoon until monday morning. Was a great trip among friends. Here are some pics. the date and time is a bit off though. fisrt pic was around 2 in the afternoon on the 22nd so you do the math.
