We're back from Canada and I just finished running between a few other trips before I could get my photos organized. Thanks so much for asking, you guys! I wish we could beam you all up there to join us!

We're always watching for the first few fall colors. We saw a little bit of color this year.
[Linked Image]

Everything I love. Rock, lichens, moss and trees. Walleyes and northern. Endless water and shoreline.
[Linked Image]

We saw a little bit of uncomfortably warm but beautiful weather.
[Linked Image]

Lots of fish. Plenty of slot fish and a few above the slot, but no monsters. Just lots of great healthy fun fish! Kerry doesn't usually pause for a photo unless he has a wall-hanger, so I had to move fast to get this one.
[Linked Image]

You can tell it's fairly warm out. We're not even suited up for winter!

Fighting crowds like we always do. Some choice shore lunch spots.

Snakes on boat! That little guy was too funny. We were a long way from any land and he showed up and hitched a ride for a few minutes before we sent him on his way. Cute little guy.
[Linked Image]


Plenty of wonderful shore lunches. Always fresh fish and garden tomatoes. We take a variety of canned stuff with us all the time and when it gets to be lunchtime, we can decide if we want cool fruit or hot veggies or potatoes and beans. All good!

We had been evading storm clouds all week without getting soaked. Some beautiful clouds went by us.
[Linked Image]
[Linked Image]

I love this weather!
[Linked Image]

On this particular day, we decided to stop right by home where we often pick up a few dozen more walleyes to top off the day.
[Linked Image]

It was at about this moment when Kerry said, "We're gonna get wet."
[Linked Image]

He suggested that as long as we're going to get wet, we might as well get suited up and go back out for a while... so we did. We got into our rain gear and went out. This doesn't look like much, but we headed west towards a nearby island and this photo is looking at the sun through a wall of water. We got dumped on. laugh
[Linked Image]

Halfway to that island in the downpour, we stopped and turned around and saw the most amazing rainbow - and a doubler to boot! (Pardon the less-than-amazing photos.) We usually don't see a rainbow from end to end like this one.
[Linked Image]
[Linked Image]
[Linked Image]

I tried to line up two of the photos to show you. (The blob at the top is my hand over the top of the camera to keep water off the lens. The tiny island in the middle with the small white spot on it is home - that's Lost Island.
[Linked Image]

It was amazing. We could certainly see where the pots of gold were located!
[Linked Image]

I've never seen trees lit up like they were there. The rainbows lasted abut 35 minutes and I took over 100 photos.
[Linked Image]

Every gull in the area was packed onto this one rock pile watching the rainbows just like we were. They kept saying they had never seen anything like it. They just stared at the rainbows, wishing they had cameras.
[Linked Image]

And looking west again, here is the sun coming out the other end of that little storm.
[Linked Image]

We fished out at that nearby spot and ended the day with this sunset. Just beautiful.
[Linked Image]

And a little shore lunch at suppertime. Note the wood table and lamplight.
[Linked Image]

We had a wonderful week and fished many of our favorite spots from throughout the years. Here was a nice day at Albert's Bay.
[Linked Image]

And this year's Smiley photo! I was thinking out loud about what sort of backdrop to choose for Smiley. I have photographed him on rocks, lichens, moss, pine needles, branches, trees, mushrooms, stumps, wood docks ... and Kerry suggested the side of a fish. Perfect! Here, Smiley is enjoying being tickled by a pectoral fin. grin
[Linked Image]
(In order to achieve the best color, the walleye was alive during the photo shoot, which added to the challenge. He became lunch soon after!)

This was our 19th trip there in 17 years. The totals for this year: 408 walleyes, 28 northern, 4 smallmouth, 1 perch and 1 rock bass for a total of 442 fish. An average year, which is great by any standards!

Thanks for following our little adventure, guys! We sure live for it every year.

Great shots … As much as I love to fish … I would liked to have been there for the shore lunches... sure beats my TV diners.

I enjoyed that. Thanks.

I was going to ask what those other fish were too. 'Walleyes', eh? Cool.
