CATCH and COOK Recent Caught Trout!
All right so met up with john he's behind me driving right now we got about seven clicks down this dirt road before we're at the put in from the meet-up squad so i've been here a few times but never really explored too much staying on a couple different islands once 12 years ago with will a few times last year and john's never.
Been here i have a map i have my gps we both heard about these rapids in in the lake so we'll probably head that way see if we can fish the bottom of them but we can troll and cast as well i would like to see these rapids personally so we have all day here it's only seven.
Like i said spend the whole day so we got lots of time we'll stop for lunch and everything so i think that's what we'll do head down to the rapids oh it's bright it's bright we're eating my friend maybe maybe shouldn't jinx it well what if it's a sucker.
It's a trout nice can't tell if it's a laker or brookie yet oh if it's a brookie i'll be super happy oh i think it's a laker can't tell it's pretty dark water come here buddy oh he's rookies he's a brookie he's got some size.
There we go good fish buddy pretty chunky actually it looks like it from here you want to look i want to look all right get those hands nice and wet set up my own camera life of a youtuber 15 minutes late oh man look at the colors john oh the colors man.
Beauty good job buddy very nice good job i'm not jealous at all all right fish on let's see i got my deep diver the one i was talking about on on john's camera oh it's a little baby laker i think what's that it does i got a net too this time yeah buddy.
It's a decent size for eating that's that's real nice for eating it's still are you hungry at all no all right oh he wants to go alrighty goodbye i'm on the board mr no competition over here at the beginning so says we're not anyway all right we.
We found a little spring what do you think this is stream coming in so we're gonna take a cast at the same time and see who gets the fish one two one three oh please oh dude there we go there you go where is it it's nothing oh man i must have had a bite or something.
Go again can you see where the stream is oh man it's a nice day we're having a blast this is exactly both just talking about this is exactly what we wanted like i feel like i'm camping this is a day out on the water uh i don't even feel like.
I don't even know where we are we've come around so many corners already we're out in the middle of the middle of nowhere now so there had there was a few cars that to put in but we haven't seen anyone so bonus two fish john saw a moose on the way in he caught two brookies.
No yeah john saw a bear on the way in he got two brookies i saw the moose and caught a laker so yeah man i feel good i feel good about today i can't even i can't get it what's your zoom or not yeah they just straight disappear in my camera.
Oh there it is it looks like one mass that's a flying v well we're coming into some rain here it started sprinkling a little while back but it's getting heavier so it's time to put the camera away i think you can see a wall of it up there this is such a lake superior park day.
Every time i'm in this park it's like a gloomy dreary day it's been hot hot hot for the past week we're gonna get off the water for a minute it's raining pretty decent now so get out and stretch our bones a little bit it seems to be a nice take out right here see what this is all about.
I don't know if it's a campsite or if it's anything but it's land oh my bones what's that good spot yeah yeah yeah there's i probably can't oh yeah it's a campsite actually this is a really nice campsite wow.
What an awesome day oh this is a pretty cool campsite got a fire pit out here oh look a little little stone sitter sitter a little stone seat good view actually that's a pretty nice view man it's a red rock over there slate cherry blossoms go check out the camp spot.
Yeah this is ideal another fire pit that's good actually because that one could be pretty windy yeah well the breeze is coming through here right now too eh yeah and you've got a uh sitter another center up there sitter sign oh my goodness oh that was a nice little spot to stop for a snack we.
Didn't end up lighting a fire the um the rain stopped it got a little bit warmer john let me borrow one of his sweaters so we're back on the water and we are going to really put our uh our energy and our efforts into getting some lunch we're going to uh.
Cook up a shore lunch so i haven't even had my line in the water half the time just putting around talking it's always like that when you meet someone new for the first time right you it's weird to not talk right so anyways get the line in the water get a fishy or two and find a nice spot.
For shore lunch man this is a nice bay here very calm we're at the very north end of the north arm of midge and uh we can literally see the end here say oh jono do you hear that we stopped talking for a minute and i.
Got the nod of approval so there's a river over here we can hear the inflow or the outflow probably the inflow sounds like it maybe not but one of the two we'll go fish it i'm saying it's flowing out of here it looks like it first maybe a beaver dam.
Oh i wonder but even so for that campsite to be there in this bay like that's sick that's really nice that's a beauty real isolated and quiet yeah calm yeah calm i'm so glad we're in this bay where it's calm yeah all day it's not an enjoyable thing though no oh.
This might be cool over here it looks like some flat ground and everything next to it we might be able to get out and do a little exploring i'm much warmer than i was before we stopped yeah oh nice little falls here no fish left at.
The top no luck with the fish at the top i kind of want to hike down there and see what it doesn't seem like there's any way down really i'm surprised i think i'm gonna hit the shore for a minute it's picking up pretty good um.
At least a minute if it'll be that quick that's what it seems to be like today the weather is coming in bursts sunny for a bit windy for a bit rainy for a bit haley for a bit haley for a bit i went to school with her i got a fish on.
I don't know what it is we shall see i'd like to use the good camera the big camera for this but it's hard to set it all up and play the fish so we're gonna fight the fish and here's the action cam for the action shots i'm not gonna use the net because i'm not used to using a net and i don't like to use one.
And that net that i used sucked this guy's fighting he's got to be a laker the way he's fighting oh yeah wow i got a monster on he's fighting good no that's not a monster oh he spit it he spit it right there far for the cars that that's when.
That's when the net comes in handy we've got a little bit of a hail situation going on the uh uh it's not kind of going into rain now but it's picking up so that's what we're doing i always found with my stick stove if the wood wasn't bone dry it was such a smoky frustrating mess.
Right yeah if i get this one going with some pretty bone dry stuff and get a little bit of cherry in there a little bit of coals it does all right well you're right it's the same type of thing you know what's the best is when you you can cut little limbs short and quarter them you get.
Super dry stuff absolutely like cut wood in a wood stove exactly yup mini version yep so as you can see just getting some twigs ready here i got the full bush buddy quick so it's probably too much to light a big fire right now for the time we want to.
Spend here we just pulled off the water to really dry off and get all the hail and rain in the boats so we'll sit here for a little while collect some birch bark get this guy going and then uh try and go get ourselves a fishy there was that spot where.
John hooked into those two brookies so that to us is a like in the bank you know i mean we can go there and get that if we need to type thing so but again this this leak is very big of course you know the trick was seeing a rainbow no you have to look away from the sun.
Okay if you look at the sun you won't see a rainbow because it's reflecting i don't know like yeah the way light passes through the mist in the air yeah you have to look away i wish i could describe it more scientifically just look away joe look away.
Swing away meryl nothing ah there we go that's what i like to see some smoke in there john's got one no fight not anymore anyway the rain's let up birds are singing fish on we gonna have a lunch are we keeping this one's a laker is he.
A good size for keeping nice size let's do it might as well okay i've come to another campsite here we're gonna cook up john's lake trout i lost my i lost mine so i have nothing to contribute it's all right it's just gonna be a little snack we already had another little snack so this will be.
Plenty i'm gonna get some firewood john cleans up the fish you'll get much more fresh than this beauty so what a gorgeous day man i can't believe.
What we've seen today crisp them fish up never skimp on this eh no no that's a bad call especially for people who don't really like fish that much if you do this if you get the oil good and hot or your lard good and hot and there's plenty of batter almost.
Anyone will enjoy it that's right it's like a kfc type thing exactly yeah do you want me to turn your camera off please oh yeah bonus sprinkles oh thanks for catching that food for us i am super interested in eating this.
Prepared in the wilderness oh my goodness that smells good holy smokes all right folks first bite oh my goodness i don't taste fish at all good i really don't good oh that's super good man hold on nummy nums get some more.
Well everything's been working out really really well for us today almost near perfect it uh it slowed down or sorry it warmed right up while we stopped to have our lunch here our little fish snack and we're appreciating the nicer weather because of the hail and the rain.
But we are done and the weather is starting to look a little gloomy again so we're going to get out of here we're still going to fish but we're done our food we're at the top end of the lake we have to make our way down anyways a big old lake so took us half the day to get here won't.
Take us that long to get back but we do want to fish still we've got some time it's uh how do you know what time it is it's 4 53 or 2 53. my watch is an hour wrong one way but i don't remember which way let me help you out 453 oh wow wow that's surprising that is maybe we just kind of fish our way out yeah yeah okay.
We both have a three hour drive ahead of us but i'm definitely uh i definitely want to hook into at least a brook trout before we get out of here so have a nice that's what we should do it's hot this is a nice spot we uh we're both exclaiming oh how this site doesn't look.
That that used at all like even the fire pit had grass growing in it we think it's because it's kind of little dead end here bay where it will be pretty buggy um in most situations i imagine but firewood no problem yeah i like this place we may do a trip next weekend back to.
This to this lake depending we'll see see what the weather's like nothing bad right but if we can come do an overnight here or whatever get maybe get into the next lake catch some brookies in there it's a nice central location for us so oh pretzels.
