It's a beautiful day in the Northwoods- perfect for fishing. The bugs are pretty bad, so I wore a bug jacket until we got out on the lake. But the fishing was great! I love blue gills.

What great fun! For those few who are coming for a fish fry soon, dinner is almost collected.

The fishing was great. I didn't keep any bass, as we were just fishing for blue gills but the bass were jumping out of the water, apparently at dragonflies. The bass looked like small dolphins, all over the lake, leaping out of the water about 2 feet into the air. I've never seen anything like it, and it was so amazing.
There was only one loon on the lake today, and you can see it in this photo (very tiny):

The clearing on the left is where my truck is, and where my friend has a rustic cabin. He owns about 1000 acres, which includes this lake, so there is no public access and of course no people in this area. He comes for two weeks out of the year, and he'll be coming in a week or two. Otherwise, it's just us and the loon.

Awesome. At the moment it is too hot around here to go. But heading to Tahoe next weekend so maybe I'll hit the Truckee.

That looks like a great fishing lake. I pulled a lot of blue gills, sunfish, perch, and bass out of MI lakes as a kid. A LOT of them. I miss that a lot.

That's a pretty meaty gill there.

Went fishing this weekend and brought home several 24" trout. Had a good morning on the intracoastal, in the shallows behind Caladesi Island. Ate them off the grill for lunch.

In the intracoastal, do you get mostly speckled trout? I've never fished in that area at all, and wondered about that.

We eat fish pretty often, of various types. While it's always fun getting bigger fish like northern pike, my first love has always been panfish. I think the best meals are fried bluegills with the fixin's.

Nothing touches panfish. Battered, fried in butter, salted. And yes, the trout are speckled.

I used to go for pike, but it took live bait (minnows) and that was a pain. We got worms for free in the huge leaf piles that the city made near the river.
