Thanks: 2 times

Here's the video from Fall Lake to Newton to Basswood.  Caught lots of pike and smallmouth.  One 25" walleye on the way out under Newton Falls.  Rapala Glidin Rap worked in bue/chrome and hot olive colors.  Rattletrap worked.  Some soft plastics worked.  Found a rock pile and caught a bunch of smallmouth and perch on night crawlers.  Sebile swimbaits were great for a weedless presentation and the pike absolutely crushed them, bring a couple packs though as they get torn up.  Wish I would have brought a way to make a rock/net anchor so we could set up in one spot instead of fighting the wind.  Fish anything that narrows down and wind pushes through, or under falls.  My first fish was a personal best mid-30's pike, and my last fish was a personal best 25" walleye under Newton Falls.  Pretty happy with my first trip to BWCA.  My goal is to catch a fish in every state and province, but am thinking about heading back to BWCA.  Any other good fishing spots there to try?
