I had a less than stellar afternoon last Sunday. I got to the lake and every red flag in the book was out and waving, but I had made the trip so I floated the lake, and made many fruitless cast. Unfortunately my camera and probably my photographic skills do not match Len's well. I did notice the bobber tree had a good crop this year and it even yielded me a very new brown trout pattern Rapala. I was able to save a young spinning fisherman from having to wade out and retrieve the trip section of his rod and I also saved his lure (he and his friends were having little good luck either.) All in all it was a pleasant low impact exercise trip around the lake in my Fishcat for the first time in a long time. It was the first time I had fished that lake this year, so I may go back this afternoon, not as many flags flying today.
