Sunday Morning September 26th, as we got close there was the mist cloud hanging over the harbor ..
We arrive at the Soldier Creek launch ramp at around 8:30.
Air was around 38° and water was glass smooth with no breeze.
Saw good friends Zach and Brianna already getting into the swing:
I loaded up and grabbed my Navigator ("B" dog) and we hit the open waters.
Fishing began slow but soon "caught" on..
Of course "B" dog had to inspect every fish caught and give a little MOUTH TO MOUTH...
For the majority of the trip I was using a TYPE II sinking line and a Chub Pattern by Jason Haslem and also my LEECH
A stomach pump revealed some great Chironomids as in the picture with my imitations
A day fishing with my best friends (hubby and dog) and two new found friends was perfect enough, but to add to that, the last fish of the day for me turned out to be a double.
First fish a nice 20"ish Rainbow on the Chub pattern ....
.... and a 25" Cutt on the Leech, which I was unable to fit into my net, so Zach saved the day
All were safely released back into the water ….

The yearly week trip up north has come and gone. But the memories will live on. Loaded up the NEW trailer and headed to a good friend (Bob) cabin.
He invited us to set up camp on his property with hook-ups. What a guy. Did I mention Bob has his own way of catching fish?
Now on to the details. This was what the fish were eating:
Well it worked, "Game On"....
And the trophy at 26"
All were safely released:
Weather was do-able but it still had it's moments:
