    I went out to a secret lake that I scouted on google maps to see if fish lived there.

    Brought some actual breakfast just in case no fish came through.

    I saw something jumping at flies in the water. Must have either been tiny tiny fish or....... Frogs? Either way none ever bit my flies I tried.

    Wild blueberries need another month or so.

    Bacon and eggs it is then.

    There were black flies everywhere so I was trying this.... But maybe it was too big? Never got a bite but there has to be something in there.

    I am going to come back at a later time with a buddy and my canoe to really check the place out. Thanks for coming along this time.

    Nice spot brother. Even if the fish are not bitting.There's nothing better than breakfast at the lake.

    Nice scout! When in doubt dig for some bait and toss it out!

    Looked like a great day even though you didn’t catch any fish.

    I did and I don't want to talk about it! LOL.

    I found a little baby salamander and threw him out there and got him stuck on a log first cast. It was like I plucked the little guy from his home, speared him with a hook, and then threw him under a water log to drown slowly. Not dealing with it well, but I keep telling myself that if it was a worm I wouldn't feel bad at all, why do I feel so bad about the salamander? He was cute that's why. Seems irrational.

    Now when you die - you will be reincarnated as a salamander.

    Nice way to spend some time @Teeps even if you killed a salamander. ;)

    Curious to see what you find when you guys get out in the canoe. :)
