My Uncle Bob and I had a great time fishing at Dog Gun Lake this Easter Sunday. The temperature was right around 30 degrees with 10-15 mph winds. It was quite chilly but the fish were biting. 🙂 Advertisements

Bull Trout Fishing Swan Lake, MT - Devon Morton

This ice fishing season seemed a lot shorter than previous seasons. Life is getting pretty busy I guess… Anyway, I was able to make it out a couple times this year with my Uncle Bob. Here are a few photos from our ice fishing trips on Swan Lake before the ice got bad.

Montana Northern Pike Fish Fry

Devon Morton, Montana Northern Pike

Caught a really nice female Northern Pike this past weekend.  Talk about good eating!  Little bit of beer battering and a little Cajun seasoning makes me happy. 🙂

Wind Rivers, Wyoming Pack Trip 2011


Here are a few photos from the Wind Rivers Range pack trip I went on with my father-in-law, George Bingham and two of his good friends, Dan Harper & Don Barth.  We took horses into the Bridger-Teton National Forest/Wilderness (Wyoming) about 15 miles and camped at Lost Lake for a few days.  We did a bunch of fishing and some hiking.
