Awesome - I took my son several years when he was young (around that age) - then he hit the "I'm to busy teens" and now he WANTS to go back and is looking forward to it as much as I am. 
 
I might journey up to that end of the lake one day... hope to bump into you... Cheers!

Where are you staying Mike J (My friend Eric and my son and I will be at Alwaki from July 14 to 21)... and yes, all this discussion about ice out and opening weekend painful.. but I am glad our season here opens tomorrow!  I might try and get out the next 5 days with luck.

57 days... whoohooo...

All this talk of the ice being out and the opener are not helping!  I've been on the boat and fishing for a while now down here, but there is something special about spending a week on Kip!  Come on July 12th!!  Looking forward to the reports, as things get going.

Hard to believe mid-May this year... spring seemed to drag on forever!

HA... Rhybak just hit the nail on the head... I am the guiltiest of fishermen... "I'm just going to walk around the store, not going to by anythin.... oohhhh shinny lure - wait!!! THEY ARE ON SALE!!!".  ..and they end up "keeping the other lures company" when I use the "old faithful" lures most of the time.  Some of my friends have told me, on several occasions... "you have a problem you know".

I honestly buy most of my tackle when river and lakes are frozen and it is below zero degrees outside - I think this honestly keeps me from going insane.... just thinking about waiting that long to get back on the water drives me nuts and buying tackle is a great substitute/replacement. 

I am supposed to get my boat back tomorrow or early Friday - season opens on the Ottawa river here (Ottawa) on Friday and I have 4 new rods and at least two dozen new lures and options to try out...or at least put in the right tackle tray.  With luck, I hope to get some fishing in for all 4 days (Friday to Monday).... so anxious!!!

T-Bone
If your anything like me, you bring everything but the kitchen sink and it just sits in the cabin looking pretty and now , you are looking to spend money unnecessarily on more lures that will end up in the cabin all week keeping the other lure company.

Believe me, I know that scenario oh too well.
