Ned Lake

Paul Peterson, a local from Michigamme, offered to take Mr. Backes to a lake he had been dreaming of fishing.  The infamous Ned Lake was within our grasp.  Paul picked us up in his big dodge ram diesel.

After a rugged hour plus ride across swamps and boulders we made it to the lake and Mr. B had is first look.

Mr B. could hardly believe he had made it.  He stared out onto the lake completely content to just be on Ned Lake.

That lasted until we cruised around this small island near the middle of the lake and Mr. B manged to snag at least half a dozen fish

Releasing most of them back into the water, the reed spot next to the island produced good results.

A few people had setup camp on the island.
