The past two weekends have been a bust due to trailer issues and weather, so I was really looking forward to getting out again.

It started out ok with a nice 38” on a 13” Buford....

Shitty photo, but the red and white one worked.

The girl was having a tough time, and it didn’t help that I was getting fish....

But I really didn’t care....

The fish would follow, but not commit. I switched flies, lines, retrieves, everything. Of the dozen or so follows, they would only look at one fly, so I kept putting it back on....finally, one ate at sunset.

We may have one more trip to the lake before she is all iced over. This past weekend was tough, to say the least. Three fish in my boat, two fish in Todds. I don't know what's happening, but it isn't good. One more weekend of torture until Spring. I will spend all winter tying up flies, leaders, getting new lines, and probably a rod or two. I have wasted more time and money chasing these stupid toothy idea why. I live where people come to vacation. They pay big money to catch trout. Me? Well...........anyone can catch a trout.

I tried to take a few more photos this time......

These cabins are $40/night. It is nice to have when it gets cold out. There is a boat ramp right there, and if you get cabin #1, you can leave it in overnight and plug in to the cabin. I like #4 because it is out of the way, private outhouse, and it has the biggest deck.
