on saturday morning, my dad, sister and i headed out to fish in the superior salmon classic. we got out on the lake at about 520am. just as the sun was coming up over the horizon. beautiful. it was a bit brisk when we headed out, but nothing too bad. we trolled down towards split rock lighthouse, hoping to catch a prize winner. this was our view of the lighthouse from the lake (the tourists could eat this place up with a spoon i tell ya)...
the water was cold and it was a looooong way down to the bottom.
i ended up catching a 2.02 pound lake trout (don't mind the CRAPPY shot of me - i had on two shirts, a sweatshirt, a jacket, a lifejacket, and a rain jacket - um, i guess i can't blame my double chin on that though. damn camera - adds 30 pounds.).
natalie was the one who looked like the diva on this trip.
after we caught this fish, the weather started really turning on us. the fog rolled in and if you didn't have radar or a gps, you probably would have ended up in wisconsin because shore could have been a hundred yards away and you wouldn't have seen it. this was a shot of the marina when we came back into the harbor.
i had a great time out on the lake with my dad and sister. even though we didn't get skunked, the weather didn't really cooperate. today, tucker and i ended up going out to watch matt play in the finland softball tourney. my dad, sister, brother and sister-in-law did go out on the lake though. the weather was awesome for them...but they got skunked. :)
