The days are getting shorter and we are into our last busy month of fishermen. We will be spending some time in the bush soon fixing docks and working around the camps. Perhaps a bit of fishing, card playing and maybe a beer or two…. After a busy summer of showing people great trips it is our turn to enjoy the North.
We continue to see guests showing up in their vehicles from some very far away places. It’s amazing how far they will come for awesome fishing. We really appreciate the effort and will always do our best to show you an amazing trip. We always have a lot of guests from the Midwest but it seems we have almost had people from all of the lower 48. Florida, New York, Texas, Montana, Oklahoma and even New Mexico.
The Alexander family has been fishing with us every other year since the the boys were very young. They have always driven from Colorado and for many years they had 5 people and all their gear in an SUV and trekked across the Continent to Red Lake. Their family has grown and now there is daughter in-laws and soon grandkids joining the group. They have all become great walleye and northern fishermen and seem to be catching bigger and bigger fish each year. This year was another awesome trip. This time they spent a week on Vee lake and caught some Big Fish. Here are a few of the Big Ones they caught this year
We headed to Shearstone this week to do some dock work. We only had a day and a half with no flying so we had to giver. We rebuilt the section of dock coming off the shore and also added a new crib under a long span running along the shore. A medium sized job and we got it done, caught some fish and had a good night in the bush. Of course Dustee was the happiest of all to be out in the bush as she has been sad because she has been wanting to go flying so badly. We had a couple of perfect working days, warm but not too hot. It felt good to be out there. 🙂
The dock turned out good and we shouldn’t have to touch it again for a few years.
