Off to the cabin tomorrow with a side trip through Sioux Falls, there to pick up my son-in-law Ryan and his son, Jakob Dean. Another Dean. Like they're coming out of the woodwork.
Jake likes to fish. But being from the prairies he hasn't had a lot of luck. So we're heading to the great northwoods where the big fishes live. Also my chance to addict another southerner to the way of the rod.
It's also my chance to get the jonboat onto the water. Last time up I had the trolling motor up and running, cleaned the boat and leaned it up against a tree. It's not like being in a canoe. But a jonboat and electric motor isn't too far off, especially with the oars aboard to ease my conscience.
