Lake Superior Blue...

Travis Frank

I'm terrible.  I can't even keep my blog going for 30 days.  Ughh...  Oh well, I am now going to relieve myself of the every single day pressure for the time being, and just throw up what I happen to think are sweet photo's.  This one is from my nearly life ending disaster of a trip on lake Superior.  What a memorable trip it was.  While we were fishing I happened to take the camera out for a few shots while battling the fish.  With the water being so darn clear and blue, it gave a great opportunity to show the huge fish we caught while still in the water.  An opportunity that doesn't usually present itself in most other circumstances.  This picture was of the largest Lake Trout we landed and was caught by Mr. Tengwall.  To give you some scale on what you are looking at, the ice is only about 6 inches thick and the hole is a 10 inch diameter.  The fish looked like a shark cruising through.  Pretty neat...
