Kay Catches 6th Trophy Fish , Quetico Wilderness PP, Day 5

Today marks our last full day and evening in the wilderness.  We awoke to a beautiful sunrise each morning except one on this trip.  We both slept okay last night, but the night temperatures are still too warm to be really comfortable.  Kay fished with Harry in the morning and is on a roll this trip, catching another “board” fish today—her 6th—and largest of the trip and the largest of the year, over 6 1/2 pounds.

Not to be outdone, Harry caught an even larger fish just a few minutes later. 6.8 pounds.

Harry and I fished together in the afternoon, paddling to near Hidden Bay on the backside of White Island, and had some pretty awesome fishing though no trophy fish.  The foam fly is still working, and I also fished a “drop shot” rigged worm for a time.  The fish are tending to school in the weed beds and catching them is easy once, and IF, you can find them.
