...mud motor is going to rule here i think as there are a lot of inaccessible regions to outboards that are bound to have fishing holes in addition to waterfowl...watched a family of river otters...

hi willie

your videos show that you have access to many species of fish there...up here not so much...mostly i fish for pike which are very common almost everywhere...most others fish for walleye...and i like going for lake trout in deep water but you have to go farther north for lakes that hold them here and those lakes are pretty big...hypothermia is the biggest risk for capsizing up here in those big lakes, that and that no one else is around

Nice fish C. David!
Do you guys have any grayling in your streams?
They are fun to catch on a fly rod.

...no, no grayling...but there are a ton of trout, but nobody fishes for them...bush here is so dense that it takes a hardy soul to wade through it with a fly rod and if you are fishing for meat then there's all the pike and walleye you could ever want a whole lot easier...on these recent trips we had to have caught between 30 and 40 pike in a couple of hours, most of them being small...but they are fun...next trip there (maybe tonight) i think i can take the longtail up a creek to about a 10 acre lake that's inaccessible any other way but by canoe and try the fishing there...we'll see how that goes, but i know that an outboard would never get up there
