upcoming camping and fishing trip 5/19-22

Monday I blast off to Glendalough State Park in Ottertail county (by Fergus Falls). My campsite is right on Annie Battle lake, which is a heritage fishery; they don't allow motors of any kind or any electronic devices on the lake. Consequently, there are some big panfish in there, as well as walleye, bass (too early for that though) and northerns. Me and my family have camped there the last two Memorial Day weekends. It's a pretty cool place. I'll be spending three nights there, fishing and camping. My primary means of fishing will be either by canoe or float tube. There is an inlet from another lake close by so I might shore fish that at night for walleyes. Right now the crappies are coming up into the shallows, but I don't know about the bluegills. I may have to fish a little deeper to get them. I also want to drag a lindy rig behind my float tube and see if I can pick up some walleyes that way. The weather outlook is looking favorable, so it should be a great time, enjoying the Lord and His creation in peace and solitude.
