We are nearing the end! Only a week or 10 days that we are busy with fishermen and then it slows down and around the 10th of September we will be done with fishermen. We have started to do some dockwork and have a number of other projects to accomplish in the bush before moose hunting starts. My turn to be in the bush is almost here. The next 5-6 weeks are my favorite. 🙂
Fishing continues to be great! Our guests are all coming out of the bush with big smiles. All lakes are catching numerous walleyes up to the 25-26 inch mark with a few bigger ones caught on Cherrington up to 28 inches.
Pike are beginning to come out of the deeper water and feed in the bays near the deep water. Almost every camp I pick up has a story about a pike attacking either walleyes on their way to the boat or attacking walleyes attached to the stringer tied to the boat.
We tell people all the time, great fishing is the bonus. Being in the bush away from any outside distractions with family or friends is the best reason to be here.
The dock at Cherrington Bay is complete although I forgot to take a picture of the finished job. This one involved half a day of being in the lake to get it done. It was a nice hot day so it wasn’t too bad despite the sunburn.
Scott and I noticed that the lake west of Vee lake that feeds it was dammed up and holding water back from Vee. With the lower water levels our region is having this year we went and rectified the situation and freed up some water for vee lake as well as the Cobham system. It didn’t make much of a difference on the Cobham but Vee lake has a nice boost of water for awhile. It turned from a trickle to raging river in 45 minutes with me and Scotty excavating.
Seth and Don W. from Ohio love Shearstone Lake and have fished it many times now and have really found the big pike the last few years. This year they caught some really nice ones. Here is a fat 40 plus inch Pike from their trip in July to Shearstone.
The Hendricks family’s happy place. Vee Lake! Someone photo bombed them this year! We got a framed copy in the mail for our office. 🙂
