What y'all been doing/planning to do?

..alas, my cottage on the georgian bay is closed, and the boat in storage..

..but I got quite a bit of fishing in, mostly smallies and northern.. best story involved a friend of my son, who was up visiting for a week..

..he just loves to fish, although at thirteen he's got a lot to learn....anyway, all he wants to do is catch a pike, and he's just pestering me, over and over, where are the pike, when can we go, what about here, or over there, what type of bait, what time of day, and on, and on, and on.. one day I say, "you know, I hear there's a clay bottom behind that island, there should be some pike there".. we head off, and I'm thinking the likelihood of a pike being caught is, well zero..

..first cast, this kid's on a northern, unbelievable..

..I'm sure it made his summer, I know it made mine..
