Canada May 2016
First trip to our new camp on the same lake. Had to make some adjustments, but this will be our new home. Forest fires across Canada meant a fire ban to start the trip, but with all the rain we had, it was lifted by the end of our trip. It was an early spring, trees were full and flowers lined the lake. Found moose antlers – cool.

Still two+40″ Northerns and Mark C missed a monster. Walleye fishing was outstanding!

Mark, Ron and Peter Cunningham, Ron’s buddy Mark Jones was a welcomed addition. John Burkhartzmeyer made his second trip with us. With the regular group of Mark Wanous, Kendall Strawmatt, Jerome Spindler, Fred Bouwman and I, we had a solid group of guys.

The new camp area is narrow, but workable

Catching lots of Walleyes allowed us to keep fishing in the rain
