Ok like I said in the Saltwater Post, I'm no fisherman. But last spring got to do a combo bear hunt/ fishing trip.
Since I usually have the camera in my hands, most of the pictures are of the other guys. But here is how we did.
Have to admit it was a lot of fun :)

Mark with Walleye

Mark with Northern

One Days Keepers

Bruce with Northern

Bruce with another Northern

The place we went was Black Bear Island Lodge, with DJ & Dawn Enns, you can see what we thought of the trip in the outfitters review :)
top notch place :)

Thanks Bruce for your pics. Since I do not consider myself much of a fisherman either I was most surprized a number of times to be invited by a friend to go to Ontario and Quebec fishing with he and two other of his friends.

What is amazing is as I looked at your pictures several things flashed through my mind. On my first trip to Canada we used a boat virtually identical to the one in the picture. When I looked at the seats going across the boat I was reminded why I needed to buy a boat cushion as those seats became the hardest thing I ever sat on for hours a day and for 4 days. The other thing I immediately remembered after seeing the walleye was the evening meals of fresh caught walleye fillets we had most every night after fishing all day. MMMMMMMM good.

Shore Lunch

You mean a shore lunch like this?
I had to laugh at the fact that we paid for a trip and the cooks had to deal with breakfast, and usually late night supper, but lunch was what we caught, 5 straight days. At first I was thinking, 5 days of fish I don't know, and I think it actually took the 5th day to finaly say, I've had my fill.

As you can tell in the photos, the first couple of days were cold, rain, misty, and all we really cared about was getting a fire going to dry out and something hot in our bellys. the middle days the weather broke and it was nice out, tee shirts on the water, that was great.
The last 1 1/2 days, the rain came back in and we actually almost ended up staying an extra day because the float planes didn't have enough ceiling to fly.
We were suppose to leave camp at 10 am, we loaded the plane and took off around 5 pm, with 20 mins of daylight left.
Made for an interesting drive, since we didnt have hotels booked and actually missed a 3D archery shoot due to the delays.
But its a trip I will always remember. Specialy when the bear rug shows up later this month :)

Yes Bruce that is exactly what I meant. We never had a guide even on our fly in trip in Western Ontario the guys I went with except for the Fly in trip had been to those places before. We went to catch walleye but still caught the occassional pike. The guys I fished with are really avid fisherman so knew where to go and what to use and man we caught and ate fish every day.

I do have to say, for someone who doesn't know squat about fishing ( and that would be me ) we had a heck of a time, and its something I would surly do again ( the canada trip ) given the oppertunity.

Was almost as much fun as taking a bear :) ALMOST!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bruce that reminds me a little of one of our trips to shining tree Ontario. When the camp owner Barry found out I was a hunter he did everything to convince me to come up in the fall to hunt moose. But alas the wallet was not fat enough for the cost. :wacko:

In Canada fishing is like a fisherman dream come true, lots a fish and some biggins thrown into measure. It will spoil you for fishing in most of the lower 48. :lol:

Sir McBruce you have been baptised under the fight of hook and line into fishing - you now can say you are a fisherman. You did great catching those walleyes and pike in MHO.

You didn't try kissing the TOOTHY CRITTERS and you didn't stick your fingers in their mouths like a bass fisherman would - you are a fisherman. I would call you a guy who now knows how. Let's put this way - you wouldn't starve - shore lunch is an event in it self that no gourmet chief can match. ;)
