Northern Exposure















Myself, pat, scott and jake ventured to the northland for a little non-spawning rainbow action. the drive took exceptionally long due to shitty weather and roads but pat finally got us to our destination. the weather was freezing and the wind was cooking, luckily the snow wasn't to deep, which made for easy walking. when we got to the area we were going to fish i jumped in first and on my 3rd cast i was streamer deep into a fat hen. pat stepped in next and second cast....fish. after a few shots no one else was quite ready saw pat threw his streamer out again and quickly latched into another fish. 6 total casts and three fish and then nothing for quite awhile. it seemed like we wore out our welcome real quick but we stuck it out and all of us ended up getting more fish, including a slab of a 26 incher. both fish that i caught were the biggest i have ever caught out of that lake. today wasn't a big numbers day but it was a killer day none the less.
