Fishing and Canoeing Trip!
These bass are so heavy I can hardly hold them while waiting for the camera to take the picture! My dad taught me the trick of trying to hold them outward so they look bigger. These were about 4 lbs each.
We also caught some pike and pickerel and our bait was mostly frogs but sometimes worms. (And I'm a wuss and just let my husband bait my hook and take off the fish as you can see in the picture!)
I love this pure, clean river. The Dumoine flows into the Ottawa River and is quite fast-flowing. Many white water enthusiasts do canoe trips here. We saw many being flown upriver and then a few days later, we'd see them go by our place.
We have a Chestnut, cedar strip canoe and the model is called, "The Bob" from 1954. It is a beautiful wood craft with some fibreglass covering. I have such a great time canoeing! The rhythm is peaceful and soothing, especially when it is calm and quiet as it was up there.
Well, you can get the lay of the land so to speak and perhaps you can see why we love spending time there!
Mother of Invention, wishing I could instantly be there again! Thank goodness for pictures and your inner mind's camera!
