When it comes to fishing, it doesn't matter whether it's Lake Superior or just a pond somewhere in the U.P., since any period spent engaged in that pastime is a slice of paradise. Guess that's why this shot from Barb Heinonen caught my attention right away. With the fog lightly skimming over the water it gives off that misty, other-worldly feeling - - the way it feels when I'm fishing. Looks like these anglers which Barb spotted might be in a paddle boat. Not having a motor to propel you can serve a dual purpose, giving you exercise while peddling your way to your favorite fishing spot. Or better yet, just imagine the workout for your circulation while trolling for the big one.

Lot's happening today and tomorrow in the U.P. Looks like great weather this weekend, a little on the cool side. Have a safe one.

A bunch of festivals in the UP; wish I could be there. Fog looks even welcoming.

Please tell me that there are three Life Jackets in that boat. I'd hate to see their names listed again on August 31st Pasty Cam messages. Can never be too safe. I have a vey personal reason for bringing this matter up.

Great picture Barb. It captures the whole scene of young boys, early morning adventure and the timelessness of fishing.

Wow, what a peaceful picture.
Gary, I thought the same thing...and just thought it was the old fuddy duddy LE kicking in with me. Jet ski vests are very light weight...and not cumbersome as they were years ago. In addition, they are very inexpensive.
Purchase a vest that has a collar on it...this flotation device will flip you face up in the water, in the event you are knocked unconscious.
When purchasing life vests for children, a common habit is to get something a child can grow into, in order to extend the years of useage. Wrong. A child can slip out of a life vest that is too large...or a too small life vest cannnot do its job.
When fitting a child for a life vest, make sure that it is snug but not too snug across the chest. When the vest is on the child, place your hands through the shoulders of the vest, and tug upwards. If your child is able to slip their hands or head through the vest...or if the vest comes off, the vest is too large, and will come off the child when they hit the water.
Thanks Gary. ;)

If anyone finds the letter "r" floating around in the pond, please return it to my above post. It seems to have fallen overboard from the word ve(r)y. Thanks for seconding my sentiments, Sur5er.

Hay Gary did the "r" have a life jacket on?
