The Monsters are waking up!!

The most feared fish in the North has been quietly laying in the depths of the icy cold dark waters of the North all winter.  They can sense the longer days approaching and are beginning to stir.  The melt is slowly starting to trickle into the  lakes and the flow of the rivers will soon increase, filling the lakes with fresh water.  Waking up all of the fish from the slowness of winter for a summer of action!

These beasts are caught photographed and released back into the water to continue their life in this pristine environment.  We ask our guests to treat these trophies as such.  A great old fish that has been growing at a much slower rate then those of warmer climates, perhaps being caught more than once in its lifetime and surviving to exist and grow larger passing their genes onto many generations keeping the gene pool healthy and strong.

The Firnett family fished on the Cobham River this week in search of a 40 plus incher. They were successful! Here is a 42 incher!

 

It remains warm and sunny up here and as warm as it is, the walleyes are anywhere from 5 feet to 20 feet of water.  I spent the night at Cherrington last night and caught lots of fish in the evening.  Mostly in 8 feet on the edge of and right in the weed beds.  The Findlay fishermen were catching big ones in 30 feet, out in the middle of the lake.  The Cobham River fishermen came out saying how aggressive the walleye were, the 5 of diamonds was a great walleye lure!  The fish are where you find them.  The big pike are slowly becoming more active as we get closer to fall and the days get shorter.

 

The Ramel family made the decision to make the trek from California to Red Lake and then on to Shearstone Lake for a family vacation.  Urs had has hands full but they came out with huge smiles and big fish stories.  4 in a boat, lines and hooks everywhere, fish on, a good time that will never be forgotten.  Here are some of the nice fish they caught on Sheartone Lake.

Cherrington Lake

If you have a large group of family and friends that you would like to share an unforgettable experience with, Cherrington Lake is the perfect place to bring them all.  The Davis party was a group of 12 spanning 3 generations.  The fishing was superb, some of the new guys were reduced to giggles as the fish were on the line so fast.  Their jigs not even reaching the bottom at times before another one was on!  There was a few guys in the group that caught  100 fish per day almost everyday.  The really big ones were on hiatus like most of the lakes but they caught tons of walleye measuring up to 25 inches.  The biggest Walleye was caught by Todd measuring 25.5 inches.  Cole had the biggest Northern measuring 37 inches.  They estimated that there must be 20 million walleye in Walleye Alley.  The hands on these guys on the way out were cut and sore.

Twin 20 inchers, nice double.

These 3 eleven year olds play sports together and now going on fishing trips.  I am sure they will be bringing their boys on trips 20 years from now.

We have had more incidents this year than normal involving fish hooks in the hands.  None of these people had to be flown out, they dealt with it at camp and were prepared with a pair of good side cutters to cut the hook once it was pushed through the skin to expose the barb.  I had a guest ask if we could supply a good pair of side cutters at the cabin. After some thought, I don’t think you would want to use a pair of pliers that had someone elses blood on it previously.  Please make sure you bring this for yourself.  One per group, everyone does not need one.  This should be inside your small first aid kit.  The best way to make it easier to remove a hook is to pinch your barbs and remove extra hooks from your plugs and rappallas, leaving only the hook on the back.  Our guests usually catch LOTS of fish that fight like crazy and your odds go up because of it.

Another item a lot of people don’t think about is Travel Insurance.  If you have it through work or other plan it would be prudent to call them prior to your trip to find out if you are covered in Canada.  Even getting a short term plan for the duration of your trip is a good idea. A trip to the hospital or an emergency medivac flight is expensive.  We rarely have any problems in the bush but you have to remember that you are in a remote area and you should be prepared. 

Time with Dad.

Whether you are a grown adult fishing with your Dad who lives on the other side of the country or a father with a number of kids, spending time totally alone in the wilderness, fishing on your own private lake is time well spent.  Being totally out of reach from all the distractions of the world is where you can really connect.

If you are sick of running the rat race and can’t remember the last time you were not caught  in the web of the digital age, a trip to the bush is what you need.

And of course there are times when Grandpa gets to fish with his grandkids.  Out on the lake you are able to hand down knowledge and wisdom to the next generation when the only thing in their hand is a fishing rod, not a cell phone.   It feels great for us to see a new generation being exposed to the North.  There are not many places left in the world like it!

Eventually after showing your kids how to fish….  They will out fish you!
