Took my annual trip up to Maine to fish lake Cobboseecontee. This year we stayed at Yukon Cottages and it was awesome. We didnt get many fish, but we did not get skunked. The cottage we stayed in was rustic, clean and peaceful, Exactly what a fisherman would want. The front porch gave you an awesome view of the lake, and at night with the full moon...You could not ask for anything more. The boat was no more than 8 feet from the cottage. The Loons would wake us up at the crack of dawn. I can not wait to go back next year. As for the fishing, the only 2 things we could get bites on were X-raps (goby and black/purple) and jdbaits 4 inch sticks (the pickerel and a bass). The bass were on beds and were easliy spooked. I would sneak into a cove and I could see the bass doing the nasty :LOL2: and swishing up dirt from the bottom. So next year I am thinking 1 week later.

Here is a link to the pictures from the trip: http://www.tinboats.net/Gallery/thumbna ... ?album=115

My friend taking the picture said I looked like an idiot. The Temperatures were mid 60's with wind. After a few hours it would get numbing. The frog togg suit was amazing in blocking the wind. I have never believed it was really like that.

X-rap was the xr-8 size? The smaller size.

Yes it was michelob. They were actually pretty good. We were mixing them with Sam Adams Summer Ale!
