No. Not really missing in action, just taking some time off from blogging and focusing on matters here at home. We trust that everyone's new year is off to a great start, and with February right around the corner, some of you no doubt, will start thinking about your upcoming trip to camp. (like us diehards aren't always thinking about the trip to camp!)
To be perfectly honest, there just isn't a whole lot to blog about when camp is not in season. It was nice to get out on the road to the Chicago and Madison All-Canada shows earlier this month. Thank you to all of our guests who stopped in at the shows for a visit, and to our new guests who booked at the shows. We look forward to having you join the "family" and are excited about having you experience our camp and the great fishing we enjoy on Wabaskang Lake. We have a local show here in South Bend, In coming up over Super Bowl weekend and then a trip to Rockford, Il and Minneapolis, Mn yet this month. If you are a local, and can make it out to the show at the Century Center in South Bend, please do so and try to revive what used to be the old boat show. Our good friends at the Michiana Walleye Association have worked hard in developing this "new" show and we think it will be a hit.
Still no ice fishing for me yet this winter as I got home from the show circuit and promptly managed to catch the mother of all head colds. Guess I should feel fortunate at least it's not the flu, but sure has made life miserable anyway. With some luck, may still find my way onto the ice before seasons end.
I was fortunate enough to get in some fall deer hunting and take a 6 pt. buck the second day of the season. Unfortunately, our fall Lake Michigan fishing, was a "non-event" as several days of extremely high winds pretty much destroyed any near shore fishing opportunities for the entire season.
In Perrault Falls, we hear that the area is receiving some much needed snow which should help maintain our spring lake levels some. Speaking of lake water levels, I did talk to some guys at one of the shows, (don't remember which one), who were telling me that they heard that Wabaskang became very hard to navigate when the water is low. Not sure where this MYTH came from, all I know is we operate a 21' transport boat with a 150 h.p. Yamaha all season long and 95% of the time can do so at full throttle across the 12 miles out to camp. Doesn't sound too tough to navigate to me!
Only 16 short weeks until opening day 2013! See you in camp soon!
