Shared a camping spot at Wickiup with Thuggin, BFishin, Jigs, some of Thuggins friends, and some of my friends this weekend. I showed up Thursday to get a good spot big enough for all of us.:) Loaded my boat in the water, pumped up my pontoon, set up camp, and cracked open a cold one before seeking out some fire wood. After returning with a load of wood I threw some bait on the bottom from the bank with no hits Thursday.:( Didn't fish again 'til about 10:00 Friday morning. Somewhere around 10:45 I c&r'd my smallest Wickiup brown to date, somewhere around 13 inches.:) Sorry no pic. I wanted to get it back in the drink as soon as possible. Caught another brown about 11:15 on the same bait and spot.:D Gotta pic of this one, not the greatest pic but I was alone.

Missed a strike a little while afterward and that was it until Saturday morning when I caught a pretty good size brown bullhead, probably 13 inches or so.
Oh yeah, I took my boat out for about a minute before it started cutting out and then died right when I got back to the bank like I meant it to.lol I figured the gas was bad or something so I filled the tank with more gas and couldn't get her to fire. I thought maybe it was flooded so I let her sit and went and listened to some tunes before anyone showed up. Jigs showed up first, a little while later my friends, and then Andy and company. On Saturday while Jigs, Thuggin, Bfishin, & andy's friends were out trolling I told my buddy's kids they could take my boat out and troll around where we can still see them. We couldn't get that sucker to fire so my buddy pops open the top and figured out the reason right away. It seems I have a mouse problem where I store my boat motor. It was full of bird seed and fiber glass insulation.
Anyway, I had a really good time drinking beers and hanging out with everybody. I'm looking forward to doing it again.
Here's a couple more pics to 100 4118

The weather was great. It rained one night but I don't think it was enough to soak anything.

Oh man it was a great weekend. Very good times! I hooked a couple browns just before dark in the deschutes arm on my Dora the explorer rod. Thats right. Woulda ate them but the spit the hook hole trying to net them. Ever try getting a fish into a host with a two foot rod when you have like a 40 inch flasher and a three foot leader? Yeah...it was fun as hell though. I proved you don't need serious gear to get into some nice browns. (Andy of course said I couldn't bring the rod in his boat, but I took it anyways) was a fun trip back to the Davis arm in the dark lol. Great times around the campfire, great food, great beer, and I can finally hear out of my left ear again after shooting that .45. Only crappy thing about the whole weekend was waking up after sleep walking on the highway, with no idea how to get back to camp, frost on the ground, with no shoes or socks. Next time I think I should afix some kind of tracking device to myself before going to sleep in the woods. Thanks Andy for inviting me and convincing me to go, was a blasty blast. For reals. You guys wouldn't know about bacon on a stick if I wasn't there. That right there is a wonderful life lesson.

This is from a previous bacon on a stick session at lava lake last year, but it will have to do.

I never made it out to the main lake but where we were camped it wasn't a zoo at all.
