A Good Week

Week 2 was really good!  The weather was less volatile so the fish were more predictable.  I believe it is safe to say everyone was pretty happy this week.  Reese’s 18″ smallie, Pete’s 39″ northern, Dave’s 24.5″ walleye and Doug’s 32″ walleye were all added to our Conservation Awards page (www.tallpinescamp.com). All species were SHALLOW (8′ or less was what I was hearing).  One guest was “sick of catching fish” by about Wednesday!Kenny released this beautiful 23″ walleye Kens 23 W

I don’t know how big this bass was, but Frank let it go and sent me a nice picture:

Matt was back this year.  Here he is with his dad Doug and, yes, a crappie!

Not only did they see a crappie or two, they saw a bear out for a swim

John and Marie are back for their annual visit.  It is always so good to see them!  They brought Marie’s sister Beth who is quite the angler.  Here she is with a perfect 27″ northern (she and Marie look A LOT alike): Beths N

John makes beautiful things.  I have many of his creations.  This year I received a gorgeous trivet with what I consider to be his signature leaf motif

rose and trivet Thank you, kind sir. This week promises to be filled with good fishing and lots of fun.  We have many used guests as well as a sprinkling of new ones.  Yesterday was downright windy and chilly; today is sunny, still a bit cool, but less windy.  Everyone has ventured out and I fully expect good reports.  Potlucks kick in this week:  I think I’ll start with Carolina pulled pork–always a hit. Frank sent some beautiful sunset pics along with his massive bass pic.  Let’s close with those:

This one is my favorite.  It will probably show up at a sports show;)
