Random Photos From My Latest Fishing Trip

Flying in and out of Kaby Lodge, this is what most of Northern Ontario looks like from the air:

a

Some days the weather was great:


a

Some days it wasn’t:

a

Lotsa beavers.

Here’s a photo of an adolsecent bald eagle (though not with the best of lighting).

Chipmunk falls.    Not only a great place to stop for lunch, but also a  good fishing spot.

a

The lake is teeming with walleye.   On a typical day, I’d catch 25 ?  30?  40?  (I dunno….literally DOZENS…I’d lose count!).

Most were in the 17-18 inch range.  But this was my biggest one, at 22 inches:

Here’s a typical stringer for our shore lunch.   We would eat shore lunch every day, and keep a few for the freezer for home.

Here is a typical shore lunch.   Which I love.

Half the fun of staying at the lodge was playing with the two dogs, Jasper and Riser, who are obsessed with retrieving sticks, especially Jasper.

I like how Jasper is fixated on the stick.

This is considered perfectly normal behaviour for Duck Tollers.

The younger pup (Riser) would keep stealing the stick from Jasper.  He was being a little shit, and he knew it.     Jasper would then yap incessantly at him to give it back.   This game went on and on…those dogs crack me up.

a

The lake has lots of pike too.  People catch them well over 40 inches.    I didn’t get any monsters like that this time.   But I did get two respectable-sized ones, 29 inches and 30 inches.

Both fish were caught within 30 minutes of each other.   It was one of my best afternoons.

a

This pike wasn’t huge, but I’ve never seen one with teeth as large as this, for a fish that size.

a

Not all of them were trophies, though.    But still fun to catch.

a

I had a lot of fun.   So did the Bear.

We will both be coming back.

    Sounds like a great vacation!

  2. Friar Says:

    @Dot It sure was. I’ve already planned the next trip.

    Pretty quiet in here, Friar. People must be lost for words. 😉 Perhaps some pictures of big bass will stir them up?


  4. Lucy would have been in heaven. She would have swum most of the day and been on her back in the grass or running for the rest of it. 🙂

    @Steph
    Plus, she would have had two playmates! This resort truly is doggie heaven.
