Blackhawk Lake – 4th Of July Weekend 2016

Spending the weekend at Blackhawk Lake just outside of Highland Wisconsin camping and boating and fishing.


Caught some nice fish that I threw back the first morning and marveled at the beautiful early morning lake.



The second morning I sat on the end of the Linscheid’s boat in their slip and fished in the shallows. It was 5:30 in the morning and foggy and I decided to listen to music. The perfect selection for early morning fishing?  Grateful Dead’s “Working Man’s Dead”. It was exactly right for the moment. Earthy. It drew the fish in. Caught some small perch after I started playing them.

To be fair I broke my bobber and was too lazy to walk all the way to the parking lot to replace it. I’ll be back for you next year when you’re bigger!

Then later on the boat out on the lake I broke out the Mad City Music Exchange can coozie that I picked up on Record Store Day this year. I bet this was the first one in Blackhawk Lake.


Forgive the moleman glasses.

Rock Rock Rock!

Have a great 4th weekend everyone!
