Dream Catch

Patrick Haley

Elk River Minnesota

Have always dreamed of having that Canadian fishing trip of a lifetime, and being able to share it with my Father. This year, we had that trip together after years of fishing together in the US and Canada. We have been going to Cedar Lake in NW Ontario for the past 5 years, and this year we absolutely hit the lottery. We caught 8 Muskies, between myself, my Father and my Brother-in-law...as well as 4 big Northern's. We had weather that would make anyone jeleous...5 of 6 days in the high 70's and low 80's in the first week in September. We caught a 32, 34, two 35's two 37's a 45 and a 51 (the picture sent). Along with that we caught a 34, two 35's and a 44 inch Northern. But the memory of sharing all of this with my Father was the pinnacle of the whole trip.
