These reports are so much fun to view.  And it seems the more detail it has and the more photos, the better.  TuscaroraBorealis: Good job, thank you!

Any luck finding some fish to cooperate in Missing Link Lake?

I had heard that some people had decent success last winter....

None of us are hardcore fishermen.  So, perhaps, the cold temps and constantly having to clean out the holes & lines wore down our resolve quicker than more dedicated anglers.   Needless to say, with our half hearted efforts, we came up with 0.

It gets really hard to fish at the low temps you had.  Baking pie's and stoking the fire are much better options! Thanks for sharing the great report.

Hello TuscaroraBorealis:  Nice report.  Great job on the toboggan. Those Connover bags sure come in handy.  Nice load of wood. 

Take care,
Cousin Pete
