To plan and have an excellent trip to camp. Just ask Don Raveling (Minnesota) and his son Steve (Arkansas) who just booked a trip to camp in the two man cabin (all that was available) last week. Don had picked up a brochure of ours at the NW Sportshow in Minneapolis three years ago and decided after two very unsuccessful trips this summer to Canada to give us a try. So at the last minute he called up, booked the "highly economical" two man cabin--and proceeded to have an excellent trip commenting to me on Thursday that "we caught more fish today than we did all week on our last trip". We certainly enjoyed having Don and Steve in camp as we always do with our first timers.
Overall, the last several weeks in camp have been very busy with our wood cutting, bear baiting and of course taking care of a camp full of happy fishermen and women. Still a couple of "extra" projects to do around here the last three weeks of the season also, including getting the new siding on the last guest cabin #1.
Despite some continued warm weather for this time of year, we are starting to see more and more color along the shorelines which provides a constant reminder that fall is indeed not far away. Another cool down is forecast for the second half of this week, which should only help the fishing get even better.
Until next time, I will leave you with a picture of Keith Augustine grimacing to hold a fat 41" northern caught last week while fishing with his son Andy.
