This is a friend of mine Micky Anderson.

This flathead catfish was caught on rod and reel in the Mississippi river about ten miles north of Burlington Iowa in lock and dam pool no.18.

He was using shad and a wide gap hook and fishing for big catfish. They had to pull the boat anchor and chase the big flat head up river till he wore out.He weighed 43 lbs.

I went to the park up the road from my house today and took these pictures.  It was so peaceful!  I went by myself and had time to ponder the mysteries of life uninterrupted!  It was really cool.

Nice pics, Swede!  I love the changing of the colors.  Were those bass typical of what you were catching?

Ontario is the small bass capitol of north America but a noreaster blew through plus a 60 mph wind storm just before we got there (we actually saw some snow flakes) put the fishin really slow.

I was up there a couple years ago for walleye and northerns and the first fish in the boat was a smallie.  The outfitter said they were invading the lakes along English River system.

I went moose hunting around that English river years back. I have always wanted to put a boat in that river. It was very intregueing to me. It made me want to see what lies beyond the next bend.It was in that region that I had my first and last encounter with a wolf.

I would have loved to have seen a wolf up there (or anywhere for that matter).  All we saw were some bald eagles and loons that shared the lakes with us and more beaver than you can shake a stick at.  It was easy to imagine all the fur trappers in that area given all the beaver we encountered.  We even had one protect his lodge as we trolled past it.  :)

 

We did see some bear scat when portaging though...
