Paradise and Beyond
The biggest northern pike, biggest smallmouth bass, biggest walleye and yes, the biggest lake trout ever caught in his life. To say the least, Lundy was more than satisfied with the fishing we experienced on our fall trip into the Quetico. For Lundy this wilderness canoe trip was an unforgettable fishing experience and not to mention an enduring physical challenge. As for me, it was an opportunity to return to an area that has a special place in my heart, rejuvenate after a long season and to develop a friendship with my new canoe partner.
Bring your shorts, tee shirts, sunglasses and oh yeah, do not forget your winter clothes and sunscreen. This was the last conversation I had with Lundy before he made his way from Tennessee to the great Northwoods to join me on a fall canoe trip adventure. I warned him that he needed to be prepared for what ever Mother Nature threw at us. Blowing snow, finger chilling rain, arm tiring wind, and if we were lucky some shorts and tee-shirt weather can be expected on an October canoe trip.
