Walleye fishing is a big reason why people visit Manitowish Waters. However, the origin of this piece came from a conversation with my Dad about his love for the North woods of Wisconsin. Over the last few months he's hinted at wanting to sell his convenience store and gas station so he could spend more time hunting and fishing. This piece is dedicated to him, his passion, and his love for the natural beauty he brought my brothers and I to as much as possible when growing up. This illustration is truly as best a representation of how it felt to visit Manitowish Waters and the lakes of the Northwoods.
