    I really like the cot set-up in the boat. You don't have to worry about bears that way. Nice. Is that a homemade "sleeping room?"

    Default pike

    I would really like to tell you where we were fishing but the guy that took the picture gets really violent when I do that.
    The boat is a 24 X 48 Alweld with a 35 hp GoDevil for power. I average 6.5 mpg with a load; (better downstream, worse up). I built the cabin 2 years ago out of aluminum and Lexan. It's bug proof and rain proof and the beds are made out of surplus litters. They are very comfortable when you put a foam pad on them.

    Great pic, Stu. I just got a laugh seeing the gps coordinates. I haven't looked them up yet to see if they are in the middle of the tundra <grin>. More than likely, you guys will find out you need a godevil to get there!

    I like that cabin, Stu...boat gets more uptown every year. Those pike sure are good eating.
    Best, Mark

    Mark,
    You haven't told me how you and Laurie did upriver. I hit 6 Chums with the prop while running upstream. You should get plenty of dog food this year.

    Default Nothing yet here

    Stu, nothing here yet. We're still waiting for the first King this far upriver. Sometimes they don't make it this far due to water levels. Just back a bit ago with the kids, canoed out and checked the net. We're having whitefish for dinner, so we're happy. Our daily question of "What's for dinner?" has been answered <Grin>.

    Best, Mark

    Default Innoko

    I'd say that came out of the Innoko or there abouts. All of the tributaries around there are loaded with monster pike.
