Plus I was a little hesitant to try and get to them figuring all the water being pushed through may have changed the paths I thought were passable. So after some searching I found an alternate place to give it a try.
Since just a week ago I caught my first one of these, even the little ones really excite me. Next up was my first ever Sauger, Check one more off the bucket list! It took a minute to figure out what I had on the line. This pic is one of probably ten largemouth this size that I caught before the bigger stuff started hitting. I found a deeper spot judging by the time it took my jig to go slack, so decided to try and work it for a while. I thought I snagged a stump, but then it started pulling.
It took a while to get it up and I was clueless what it might be, until I got to see this bright silver carp that I foul hooked by the outside of its gill. There was a third one that was even bigger but it straightened my hook. Either that hole was the perfect spot for them or they travel and feed in schools like their redfish cousins in Florida.

The place is called the Crooked Bush, and the mutated trees that grow there are warped and twisted like they belong in a Salvador Dali painting.
They hook, curl and wrap around themselves and each other in bizarre ways, like nothing you’ll ever see any other place in Canada. The creepy-looking trees have inspired plenty of ghost stories in local folklore, but scientists say it’s not spirits or the strong Saskatchewan wind that warp the trees. It’s simply science, and a unique genetic mutation that causes the aspens to twist as they grow.

Winter Triad Patch I have my summer patch, but have never actually hiked any of the three triad mountains during the winter season. I invested in a pair of snowshoes early this winter, so now I have no reason not to go! Hiking during the winter months can be a totally different experience. The views can be different and even more breathtaking when everything is covered in a blanket of snow or ice. Hiking in the winter can also be more dangerous because of the temperature changes and amount of ice that you may slip on.
I am excited to get up Coney, Arab, and Goodman this winter and receive my triad patch as a well-earned token of my accomplishment. Snowmobile This is something I use to do as a kid all the time.
