A Sawbill friend and lake trout aficionado

6/6/09 – A Sawbill customer and lake trout aficionado sent us these pictures from a recent trip. Mike and his son Orion caught a few nice lunkers on an undisclosed lake. They also went bushwhacking and found a small glacier-like ice formation. It’s holding on thanks to a sheltered location on the shady side of an embankment and a cool start to spring, as mud season (or when the snow melts) began more than a month ago. That’s endurance, but it can’t last forever. Summer temps are just around the corner. Thanks for sharing your trip with us, Mike! – Lee
With some attentive camera work, Mike captures Orion in the act of retrieving a lake trout.
A grin to fit the catch. Nice work, Mike.
With the young fisherman posing next to the ice, we get a nice sense of its scale.
