August 25th…Fall Is In The Air…

Is fall around the corner?  With days getting shorter, water temperatures dipping (now below 70 degrees) it surely means some interesting fishing ahead of us.  Walleye fishing continues to be good with a very nice 29 1/2 incher caught and released this week.

Joe P. scores!

Some other good fish as well…

It wasn’t all about the walleye.  Andy had his sights set on some backwoods adventuring.  ***WARNING*** The following images may be disturbing for some viewers.

A chunky Clearwater trout.
Man with no pants.

Now, to be fair to Andy, he was actually in rescue mode retrieving my boat on McGregor which apparently drifted off possibly during the 7 1/2 inch deluge a few weeks back.  Unfortunately some water in the gas tank made fishing there impossible.  In the future I will be more diligent in making sure guests tie things back up and use the lock!  Stay tuned for photos of guests being flogged  for disobedience.

Perch Rodeo Update:  As the season winds down the tension mounts.  Here Stu basks in the glow of taking the lead with an 11 1/2 inch bull perch…

Unfortunately his lead was fleeting….

That’s right…”uber” competitor, and ex good friend Andy Lewis becomes the usurper with an 11 3/4″ lunker.

Possibly wearing no pants is the key?

….or is it the frame of mind you get when you bring your action toys along on your fishing trip?  Here “fisherman Dan” holds the lead perch.  Still a few weeks left to wrestle the title away from Andy…bring on the competition!

On the musky front here’s a nice photo from early in the week…

One could easily say this photo is of a 50 plus fish….but in reality 47 1/2″ Still a great photo…..and fish!

Not all fish have to be big to be fun!

Let us conclude with a bit of “beef cake” for the ladies.  Proof that lake temps are still pretty nice…  ***WARNING*** More photos that some may find disturbing…

Joe P. after a hard day of pounding walleyes…

In conclusion if you are still thinking a fall fishing trip might be fun you had better act soon.  Don’t be like these two…

The sleeping dog catches no fish! Confusious.

Thank you very much for making my get a way week so enjoyable. Dan and I had a great time. You and Susanne should be commended on how clean and well maintained your cabins and lodge are. I will recommend you to anyone that is looking to go to Canada fishing and I look forward to the time I can come back.
