It has been warm and sunny in the north.  Warmer the farther north you go.  The water temperature has jumped more than 10 degrees in the last week.  The fish have been going through many different depths but have come back into the shallows where they usually are this time of year.  The water temperature, according to the Carlson party that flew out of Vee this morning said that it was 67 degrees yesterday on the surface.  It is much colder below the surface as one of their party will attest.  The one who catches the smallest fish must dive off the dock!  He laughed because he also caught the biggest fish!

Here are some pictures from my travels throughout the last few days.

The mornings have been perfect for having my first cup of coffee, watching the sun come up from my office....the front seat of the Otter.

Lady Slippers are rare but not in the north country.

Like a mirror. The hardest surface to land on.

I will have some more fish pictures up in the next few days.
