Well, if you say so...

This morning's catch. 13.5, 14, 1nd 15 inch bass, with a 23.75 inch walleye. All caught with the same lure, on my old reliable 331 outfit.

This is our last full day here this year. We get to fish for 2-3 hours in the morning, then have to get packed up and out.

Some of you may have heard about high water and flooding conditions along the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River. I can tell you, it's true.

The first photo is of the dock we use, last year, when the water was low. The next one shows the same dock this year, or what's left of it. And the third shows the temporary dock we get to use this year. It's had one section fastened on top of another to get it above water. (Rats. Messed that up. The photos are in the reverse order.)

And this is after the water level has gone down about 8 inches from its peak, back in June.

TJ, thanks very much for sharing.  I gather you are ending your vacation there.   What a beautiful spot, and fish aplenty!

You may have created a monster...

Both of the boats tied to the above docks are mine. These photos (older) show a closer look of the one I usually use, all set up to go. This boat originally belonged to my mother. She bought it in 1963, using money she had made working part-time as a waitress. She and I spent many, many hours fishing together in that boat.  I took it as part of my inheritance when she passed away 10 years ago. I didn't get the big Johnson until that same year. We had used a 9.5hp Johnson on it for years.

That should provide a wonderfully pleasant ride with it's chine & bow lines. Much better than the utility Jon Boats so prevalent now days... Jeff
