Reliving A Dream...

Travis Frank


I recently received more pictures of a trip that Steve, Adam and myself took up to Mille Lacs a couple of weeks back.  I just thought I would kinda relive the dream so to speak and post more pictures of our catches that I didn't already show.  Once again, our main catch during our trip was the fabulous Smallies, and I hope to be having similar results when I head back up there today. 

mille_lacs_steve_bass1.jpgOriginally we planned to be fishing today, but since we left room in our schedules to play the weather and the wind, we chose to pick Thursday as our day of attacking.  I will be up there with Guru and Bob on what hopes to provide several walleyes and smallies, and as I talk to Guru more, it sounds like we may be spending some time chasing my beloved friends (ol' Snaggle Tooth).  I will report back when my time on Mille Lacs is through, so until then, we'll just have to look back and relive the past experience up there.mille_lacs_travis.jpg 

I especially like the shot of the sun almost rising, and the two guys that look like they are trying to pick a fight with the camera man (heehee).  That's the attitude I love to see, Look out fish these guys are coming for you!  Also included is a shot of a giant walleye that Steve landed on his recent trip to Canada.  He said that they weren't all that small, and they landed some whoppers in the 28 inch area while they were up there.  Sometimes you have to weed through the large ones to get to the small ones, or something like that!canada_small_walleye_3.jpg

The Canadien Whopper!

Keep on Livin the Dream Fellas!
