Summer lovin' 2014 - Part 1

Travis Frank

July 4th has come and gone, yikes!  It's a good time to look back over the past few months and see what has happened on our rain soaked lakes.  First off, the high water of 2014 will likely go down in the history books as the highest water of all time.  It needs to be mentioned as priority #1.  "No Wake" on almost all metro lakes has made guiding interesting.  Instead of flying from spot to spot in search of the most active fish, it's been a slower, methodical grind-it-out approach.  But, it's still been dynamite!  I think I'm witnessing the best metro walleye fishing of my life this year.  Through July 4th, the action is still going strong.  Throw in a few bass outings and only one (yes, only 1) muskie trip to date, and I have a spring to remember!  Of course, I can't forget about my lil fishin' partner in training that is nearing his 3rd month of fishing mentorship.  My how time flies!  Here are a few photos to remember the beginning of this summer season.  Thanks for all that have made it so memorable!
