Yeah I have pretty much no responsibilities right now so I'm trying to hit it hard. I don't know what I'm gonna do when I have to actually be an adult...Sad

Thanks to all.
Squatch, what do you prefer in terms of a Steelhead/Salmon stick? I'll replace my medium light stick but after this experience I'd like to go with something beefier for those lake run fish on speed.

...funny you should ask... my rod for the past few years is made up of 2 broken rods... the main part is a Gatorback? and the other pieces holding it together are from an uglystick...lot of spit really makes em stick together..the eyes arent even the same size or distance apart... a true one of a kind.LOL

but anything in the 6 foot range with a medium kind of backbone... i only use one rod so i like something that has at least a little flex and is able to feel tiny bites from browns and brookies in the summer, but has enuff balls to sink hooks into jaws in the fall..

Awesome report! I'm headed up north later this week(Wed-Fri), looks like favorable rains on Tuesday night so hopefully that helps. I won't quite be in Canada but not too far from it, these pictures have me all sorts of excited.

Pinks are probably about done but you should have an EXCELLENT shot at some migratory Brookies if you're a couple hours out of Duluth. Feel free to shoot me a PM if you're looking for a good spot to start.
