A Quick Trip In The SIB

Got away from work yesterday afternoon and had to be back this evening. Not much time, but I managed to get a nice quick fishing photograpy trip in with a buddy. The round trip with the boat was about 175 kilometers, which consumed approximately 65 litres of gas and about 1 litre of 2 stroke oil. Weather varied from very warm and sunny to partly cloudy to torrential downpours. Caught a few fish (all northern pike which we released) and had a good time. Here are some (untouched) photos I took;

Actually we both had alot of leg room. The amount of kit (which was about quadruple what we needed - other than fuel) was due to a couple of factors. I had some extra experimental gear that I wanted to try. The friend I brought is still pretty new to overnight camping he brought pretty much his whole apartment wit him (there probably was a kitchen sink in there). I didn't have the time to sort through his stuff before leaving (I had to work earlier in the day, and since we had the space, I just told him to throw it in & we'll sort through it once were out there.

Pics make me wonder about heading out to Manatoba for holidays

Great pics. Dream trip was to go to James Bay for holidays next year. Your pics gave me a second choice. Not only that can visit my cousin there.

So an A-frame with a gun rack isn't such a bad idea then ?
