So we had to do a 15 mile paddle down a overflowing river with no current for Brad to catch a fish. Brad says it was all worth it. We decided last night that we wanted to check out one of the rivers around here and put our canoe to good use. We called up a place that rents canoes on the Illinois Fox river and they shuttled us up the river, well when the guy was giving us the option of how far we wanted to go, 7,11, or 15 miles, of course we didn't want to wuss out so we said 15 of course. About 5 and 1/2 hours later we made it back to where we started. And it was about 100 yards from our pull out that Brad started catching fish. He kept the large mouth bass. Even I got a bite, but after some time of fighting mine got away. It was nice to be able to get out and see some of Wisconsin's back country though.
It's not Wisconsin without the cows
