Rethinking last Blog title.....

Spring is almost here? Well the weather the last couple of weeks certainly has me rethinking that one! I guess you have to take the good with the bad. Although the crummy spring weather has significantly cut into some time on the water fishing salmon on Lake Michigan and chasing bluegills and crappies on local inland lakes, the good news is that this extra time at home has given me a jump start on some of the "move North" preparations.

Unfortunately, it appears that Spring is even slower arriving around Perrault Falls as local sources tell us that there is still A LOT of snow on the ground and ice on the lakes which already has me wondering/worrying about being able to get into camp this year hopefully around May 8. If my memory serves me correctly (feel free to insert joke here), it was our 2008 season that resulted in our flying out to camp and walking in the back way as a result of the late ice out. Here are a few pictures of that experience.
Looks like the "old" camp prior to new siding on all the cabins. Still way too much ice in 2008 to make it to camp by boat so...

We just hired a couple of planes to fly us out, land in Miller's Bay and hike the bush into camp the back way.
Regardless, we do what we have to and will certainly be in camp and ready to go come opening morning May 18th!

Despite the weather conditions, we have managed two trips onto Lake Michigan for a little spring salmon action. While much slower fishing than we are accustomed to during the Spring, primarily do to the water being "dirty" from all the wind we have had, it was still great to get some family members out on the water....
