Monday was a holiday in my part of the world so after a weekend of doing chores I decided to take it easy and see if I couldn't try out the new Zodiac. I left the cabin at dark thirty figuring I would drag the new Zodiac into a back lake. This particular lake is only accessible via 5 miles of old un-maintained logging road (or float plane). I bear hunt the shores of this lake and in the past have only ever gone in with the canoe on the roof of the truck.

This gives a small idea of what the road is like. This was on my way in for the spring bear hunt this year:






Pulling the trailer 5 miles on this road ended up taking me 2 hours each way (normally takes me 1 hour without the boat trailer). The trailer and boat (Zodiac) are light and the trailer is a tilt affair much like a snowmobile trailer that is very versatile in the absence of a launch.

My coon hound had as much fun as i did:



Couldn't let the hound have all the fun so managed a few small walleye for lunch but really had a lot more fun pulling in 7 or 8 like this one (3-4 lbs) and countless 1-2 lb'ers that were a mixed bag of smallies and largemouth plus a handful of northern pike. That's the only pic that halfway turned out as trying to set up the camera and use the timer on the boat proved to be a challenge.



Pulled up on shore for lunch:



Great little lake that has about 30 miles of shoreline, lots of underwater structure, lots of islands and little bays and virtually no pressure - not a single building on this lake and did not see anybody all day.


Never violate a woman, nor harm a child. Do not lie, cheat or steal. These things are for lesser men. Protect the weak against the evil strong. And never allow thoughts of gain to lead you into the pursuit of evil.
