Each year we meet lots of new people and every one has a different outlook after returning from the bush.  It takes a couple of days to unwind and completely relax.  No cell service, no Internet, no outside distractions.  Just you and your friends or family, a boat, your fishing rod and miles of open space around you.  Time to connect, time to think and for some people it is a time to heal.  I have always said that being alone in the bush is therapeutic and good for your soul.  Having a comfortable cabin with good beds to sleep on as well as great working equipment to enjoy the outdoors and be on a world class lake with lots of trophy fish also helps. 🙂

It feels great to be able to show people how special it is to be here.

Our guests continue to enjoy the warm weather and sunshine.  We are in need of some rain as water levels are going down and there is plenty of forest fires still burning.  Mostly west and southwest of Red Lake.  Just one pesky fire on the Cobham continues to survive but is not much of an issue at this time.  We just have to deal with some smoke on some days depending on the wind that day.  It is cooler with a few showers today which will help.

Fishing continues to be very good.  Numbers of fish have been exceptional with lots of 22-25 inch walleye being caught with a few 28 and 29 inch walleye.  There has been a few 40 plus inch Pike being caught and released as well.  The fish are in different depths on each lake, anywhere from 4 feet to 30 feet of water.  As usual, bigger fish have been in or very near some deeper water next to nice structure.

Here are some pictures from some of our guest who have been up fishing with us recently.

The Berry party made the annual return to the Cobham and were there during part of the fire in the area.  The fire didn’t get close at all but made for some great photos during the height of it.  Fishing was awesome and they had a great time as usual!

The MNR put sprinkler systems put on all of our camps in the area as a precaution, just in case.

The fire is almost right out as of today, we are delayed due to bad weather up north……Rain and crappy weather.  We needed it badly

“Rena,

Another awesome trip with Amik, this year to Vee lake and it didn’t take long to figure out where the fish were at! 10 year old Laurel really showed the boys how to put quality fish in the boat and she’s a pretty darned good cribbage player too! Laurel had the big northern on the trip but I managed to beat her out with this fat 40″ fish on the final day.

Joey had the big walleye with a nice 26″, lots of walleyes that were 20-24″ and several days where individual boats caught over 100 fish per day, not too shabby!

Thank you for the great time!”
