Ya just can't go to BBIL without taking a fishing pole with you. first of all shore lunch is fish...so if you dont take your pole you'll go hungry... but mid day when you are not hunting you are fishing. And some of that comes along with some little guys but there are also some monster fish up there. The record for the week was 2 northern pike coming in at 46 inches each. the record for the year was a monster northern at 51 inches.
There are slot limits on what you keep. anything smaller then 20 goes back anything bigger then 30 goes back. You can still bring home 3 fish ( pike ) 3 fish ( walleye ) for a total of 6 fish. just make sure they are in that slot limit ( for the pike ).

Anyway here are a few of the fishing photos I have from this years trip.
Oh by the way....I'm considering doing a fishing only trip late august up there.
Larry, Mel...heck of a way to wrap up your season...get away for canadian fishing trip.
Rowdy....what do ya say bud? ;) I know you'll be speed goat hunting.
but actually a couple of friends here in fairplay are talking of wanting to go. Would be sort of cool if we could put together a group and fill up the lodge for 4 or 5 days.


ok on to the photos.

Purty nice pike Bruce and I know how you feel about shorelunch --- it gets so old by the fourth lunch of it :)- :D You'll be there while I'll be in Colorado? Hmmm what's wrong here? :blink:

You know me - I'd go back for fishing anytime, simply world-class but I'd do some bear huntin there too. I'd have to buy a break down spinning rod but that's another story of stepping on and breaking one in the dark. :blush: :blush: I want to go but you know where I'll be - I'll be high and dry (hopefully) over some dirty water hole in S.E. CO waiting for mr. prong prong prong horn with bow in hand. :D

Honestly the fishing is easy stuff up there and the water is clear and clean and the land is beautiful. You will not get skunked at any hour of the day there. The big fish are cruising in some of the oddest waters but then in some ideal waters too. Heck they're everywhere. Your hands and wrists will have a great work out by lunch time by setting the hook, pulling and reeling in the mornings catch.

WARNING

This place will spoil you. Spoil you for fishing any place else because it's so much fun compared to any place else.

Aah that reminds me of several fishing trips I made to Northern Ontario and one to northern Quebec and even a fly in fishing trip to extreme northwestern Ontario, heavy on the North part. Everyone should experience a flight with a bush pilot at least once in their lives. NOTE TO SELF: Bring plenty of extra underwear for the flight.

Nice fish Bruce.

Northerns and walleye are two of my favorite fish to catch and eat.
