September 27, 2006 - Mike K, Mike W, Harlan and Poppa converge on Shag Lake. We arrive in two cars and two routes - Harlan and Mike K arrive after dark by way of Boney Falls with three trout. Mike W and Poppa arrive by way of the Island Casino late afternoon with $185 more in their wallets than when they left Chicago. Both stoves were fired up and chili was cooking when the fishermen got there. Cold night outside, toasty in the camp. Awoke the next day to peaking color at Shag.
