    Those native Brookies are quite possibly the most beautiful fish while in spawning colors. And you won't find another fish that tastes the same. Yummy is right, lol. I caught this 19" Coaster Brook Trout on Lake Superior this spring. My first Coaster (which is a Brookie that comes out of tributaries and stays out in lake). c8329a4b68f0857402db60705b7f6c2e.jpg

    When I was a kid limit was 10 per day. Now it is 5. Still lots of places up here to get them but nothing like when I was young. Beavers screwed up all feeder Creeks, warmed up water in many of rivers in last 30+ yrs.
    If I take two limits/year that's lots for me. Usually bring some to Mom since pops died.

    Out again yesterday an some of the best fishing I ever had . some walleye every trip now fishing the west shoreline in the shade ,then to the west shore for smallies ,never had smallie fishing like this with so many big fish coming on my rig. yesterday 4 doubles in a row an one of them most times a big fish . I had to go to my Shimano high gear ratio T14 bait casters to get them in from the strong current.

    Can,t wait for the water to cool some as it,s still in the mid 70s up north in the fast water an around 80 south in the reservoir,90 at the warm water discharge that warmed up from 85 a week ago .great fishing ahead as the fall temps get here an the fish go on the feed. heading back today for another round in the heat :oops::p

    Might better go fishing than archery hunting for the next month until it cools off.

    You guys are getting some great fishing in! Supposed to be cooler by Saturday's opener, so I'll be out for at least a couple hours in the morning, looking over all the cut timber;).

    Finn, that's a heck of a brookie. I figured I'd never catch one that big, so I made a wood carving of one many years ago. Same size.

    Been in the 90's all week here an I caught a nasty cold, been miserable all week. I did manage to shoot three arrows yesterday just before dark. I think I've finally settled on my setup and plan to tweak it today, got my hunting clothes out yesterday, got to setup up a blind a today an trim some brush out. Nothing like waiting to the last minute but hey I do have my license's, I have a arms length of permits folded up ready to go! I even remember where I put them :rolleyes:

    Heat's been brutal, but this AM is nicer. We had 4 "Tater days" with a lot of volunteers and got about 180 bins so far (bins average about 900#) Only about 1.75 acres to go! 'Course we have a bunch of carrots to get too, and not enough volunteers signed up so far. Had the last sweet corn pick yesterday. Fishing sounds really good, but no time.

    That's a lot of tatters, I don't care who you are :).
    We spent today making tomato sauce, around 8 qts. We've already canned 14 qts of tomato's, 6 pints of salsa. Garden did very well this yr. Apple sauce is next and maybe put a deer in the pressure canner.:)

    Hit the Big Lake again today, beautiful weather and Lakers were cracking. Me and my Friend had a great day, and filled the cooler. 52ad4a9da9d3478ad0f1c513075ccba9.jpg ae1d2e364e54d3f00cb6d2862b4e3f7c.jpg

    Hopefully be out on the big Gitche Gumee, on Thursday. My two uncle's who are both Vets, haven't been fishing on Lake Superior ever. They are both up so hopefully get them out.
    Smoker is going to be rolling all day tomorrow as the fish from Sat are in the Brine.
