We had a great bunch of guys in from California for opening weekend.
Pat makes new headwear for somebody every year, and this year the lucky person was John! His hat is called "Viking SMACKS" which stands for "Save My Ass from Collisions with Knuckleheads & Other Shit", it matches his brother Jake's who has the "VB3" which is the "Viking Beaver Battle Bonnet". There is also very detailed instruction manuals that come with these hats!
They all had great fishing, with Danny catching a 27" trout with his hand carved fishing lures! They did a couple of the portage lakes but mostly stuck around Douglas.
