Finally getting caught up with stuff after a week long family reunion trip to Indiana. No Bluegill report here, but thought I would share a few pics from trip. Weather was nice, but got tired of listening to all the complaining when it got in the high 80s. Last day it was 57 degrees when I got up...definitely sweater weather for this Texan. We stayed at the Potowamanie Inn in Pokagon State Park. The area is rich in Native American culture.
Many hiking trails in the forest areas. I got caught in a rainstorm 2 miles out...camera totaled, but saved the memory card.

Every morning around 7 am a pair of sandhill cranes would come up to feed on ear corn they put out. Stay still & they get pretty close.

I had never heard of a "Toboggan run" before...a snowy northern wintertime event for sledding.

Looking back at the Inn from the end of the Togoggan track.

The last night the Fort Wayne Philharmonic Orchestra performed a "Stars & Stripes" concert...cool to see the boats line up for the event.

coolphotos Awesome post. Looks like you had a very good trip!


Side Note: Yes Sir I am surprised you did not fish that spot on the nature trail. I would have found the closest Walmart and bought an $9.99 combo along with a carton of worms. That spot looked MIGHTY FINE ! hooked

Sounds like a good trip. My family has gone there several times during our winters living in Ohio to do the toboggan run. It’s really a lot of fun and draws big crowds especially on the weekends.
