Fishing was still strong this week with those going out getting into lots of keeper Northern, walleye, perch, and smallmouth especially. Ryan encouraged guests to try some new spots he pointed out based on some windy conditions a couple of times. The tackle from our store also proved successful. With the July month comes a common theme of family. While we had lots of guys groups in June, we now see more families.
Jamie brought his grown son Cody up for some father son bonding. They took advantage of fishing long days and brought in some nice catches (all different species) for Earl to fillet. These two are good people (from the same small town my parents were from!) and we sure hope they can come back.
Greg and Jeanine brought their two boys to Tall Pine for the first time and Greg got into some nice fish. We also had some campers- Song and his family- that made Tall Pines a stop on their RV road trip for a couple days.
Tyler shared some quality pics from his trip earlier this season:
And, my parents joined us, driving all the way from Florida, to see Tall Pines for the first time and make a 2-week vacation out of it. It sure is nice to have family up here:
And while they enjoyed catching some dinner, my Mom also gave the nicest housewarming gifts (all hand-made with love and with perfect lodgy-warmth)
Some of us this week went to the local Whiskey Jack for some live entertainment. What a fun vibe it is there- Laura and Graham sure go out of their way to be such friendly restaurant hosts:
Dar sent this one of Janet and this nice smallmouth she reeled in:
Enjoyed some stromboli and reuben sandwiches for Potluck this week with some card playing after- perfect weather this week to have outdoors!
The guys took advantage of a lighter week by tackling some camp projects. From splitting wood, to laying brick, powerwashing, installing some railings, cleaning up the beach area, and landscaping, camp is looking pretty darn good.
This is also Earl’s Inspriational Pic of the Week- Ryan standing there while Earl seems to be the only one being productive 🙂
Relaxing Friday night- boats were in, guests checked out a little early, and another great sunset with a bottle or two of wine…Life is Good
