Canít get too many anywhere I go lately. Been trying several lakes for brookies and splake too...just havenít been able to get the timing right I guess.

Made it out Friday after work. First cast, 2 seconds after hitting water...fish on! ...little 12 or 13Ē speck...kept for the frying pan, second cast bite..bite... miss. Third, same. The next million casts....nothing.

Still nice to be out I guess (I think thatís what you say when youíre catching nothing...not used to this lingo)

Under the bridge, about 17 000 mosquitoes! Like trolls, lying in wait for victims. Thick and hungry
Guess Iíll try again tomorrow.

Iíll give you directions like the old guys at my hunt camp do...

Once you get in there, past the big stump...keep going a bit, but veer a little left. Once you get past the Oak...youíll know it...itís a great big Oak...biggest tree around...so you go past that and then about 200 yards youíll come to a clearing. Well itís where they used to log. Used to be a clearing there. I guess by now itís probably all grown up with pines. Havenít been there in must be 30 years now. But anyway, ya go east from that clearing, and down past the stove. (What stove?). Well, old Rick, you know him? ...no?...well, he had this old cook stove...and it rusted through...so he put it out there, and it was by that field where we used to pick blueberries...
At the stove you go up on the ridge to your left, right up top, and you follow the ridge for quite some time. Youíll see a an old ammo box there, itís where jimmy shot the moose that time...but you wouldnít know jimmy, youíre too young for that...of course the box could be covered in leaves and stuff now...anyway, once you find that ammo box, thereíll be a pond a bit to your north. Go in there and at the far side of that pond is the lake youíre after. Used to be good speckles in there.
