Default 8-27 North Point

What a great day it turned out to be. Was worried about the weather forcast all week. We finished 15 for 22 or so but the size of the fish was great. All except for mine anyway. 3 of us had our wives up to show them why we like to come up and hit the lake a time or two a year. Laura, my wife, end up catching the 2 biggest fish she has ever caught. Her first fish was a 16lb. king and her second was an 18lb. lake trout. Same goes for my sister, she had a 14 lb. lake trout and an 11 lb. king and the other lady on the boat took a 14 lb lake trout as well. My 2 buddies also got a nice 4yr old king as well. Me on the other hand, each time it was my turn to take a rod it was bait on the other end. Did have a 4lb king the first time but after that it was 2 very small cohos. It was worth the entire trip though to see the look on the ladies faces. They already want to make this "couple" trip a yearly thing. We ventured clear out into 280fow and the big fish came between 230 and 260. The lead core was the hottest rod with a green alewife spoon. Every pole but one took fish though and at all depths. Had a great time the night before and enjoyed some great pizza from a local place. The only bad part of the day came when we got home. Derek, our oldest son got hurt in his football game. Ended up just getting out of the hospital last night. He had a bruised spinal cord and some torn cartilage around one of his vertebrae. He had no feeling in his hands for the first day but once the swelling went down he got it back and is now back on his feet. It will just take some time for him to get back to normal. A little scarry for a while but he will pull through it fine. Really enjoy coming up to the big pond and hope to return many times. What a great fishery you guys have up there. I know 3 ladies who won't ever forget the trip. Mike
