We brought our fishing rods along on our day trip yesterday and fished for the first time this season. Our friend John, Tank, Amy, and I piled into our 19 foot Wenonah Itasca and paddled and portaged across Brule, Juno, Vern, Whack, Homer, the Vern River, and East Pipe to Pipe Lake. John relaxed and fished in one of our @helinox chairs in the center of the canoe as we paddled. It was a beautiful, sunny day and we all had fun catching fish and exploring new lakes.
In the evening we returned to camp and made a feast of fresh walleye, steaks that Amy’s dad brought in, and a homemade batch of macaroni and cheese, topped off with hot cocoa and a few squares of chocolate. After watching a full moon rise over the glassy lake, we crawled into our sleeping bags at dusk.
