Hot weather and hotter fishing

July 14, 2018

Been awhile since we have posted.  The mayfly hatch came and went several weeks ago.  Lasted nearly a week and was lots of fun for all, especially our fly-fishermen.  Water temps have stabilized in the low 70s and should remain constant for the remainder of the summer. Bass fishing is excellent.  Big fishing holding to […]

June 6, 2018

Hey there fishermen!  We have been super busy the first few weeks of the season.  We have been bustling with guests since the open and are super excited for what June has to bring.  May had some of the strangest weather we have seen in some time.  A really late ice out suddenly changed and […]

The season is here

May 13, 2018

This is the first post this season while at the lodge.  We arrived a week ago, with ice on the lakes and the winter’s destruction in full display.  As I walked into a dark, cold lodge in the late hours of the night with two dogs nervously in tow I immediately had a feeling something […]

Greetings fellow anglers.  Been awhile since we have posted.  I don’t know about you but its been a long winter and I’m ready for spring.  Alas, in NW Ontario it is still very much winter.  The next 10 days or so see frigid temperatures, not good.  As such we are starting to lean towards a […]

Summer wrap-up

September 22, 2017

It seems like just yesterday we were pulling up to the lodge and getting her ready for the season.  Where did the time go?  What a wonderful season it was, our best ever!  August fishing did not disappoint that’s for sure.  Big fish hit our nets, very big fish. Our walleye count continues to grow […]

Hot, fat and a little sassy

August 2, 2017

That title explains the past few weeks.  Like clockwork we got our 3-4 days of HOT weather.  Well, hot for us.  Mid 90s, humid and sweltering.  A perfect time for a dip in the lake.   But hot weather can mean hotter fishing.  And hot it has been.  Bass are fat from eating all summer, […]

Raindrops keep falling on my head

July 15, 2017

The last 10 days or so have been dynamic.  Okay, I realize I say that a lot but last week was some of the worst rain I have ever seen in my 29 year of coming to Canada.  Driving, hard rain for 36 hours.  Nearly 6 inches.  So much that even many hardcore fishermen took […]
