Canada Day – Brrr..

Posted by on Wednesday, July 2, 2014 at 7:01 am

Canada Day was July 1.  Normally we wear summer attire, battle mosquitos, host BBQs, view fireworks and sit around camp fires.  Yesterday we donned jackets, couldn’t find a mosquito, wished for a warm bowl of soup, cancelled fireworks and lit the wood stove in the house.  By supper time temperatures were a nasty 6 C (42 F) and dropping – more.

On June 5, I posted a picture of Tom’s northern from 2013 on Seseganaga Lake and his mission to catch another 50 incher.  He tried his best but came up a few inches short this year.  Tom had to settle for a 46 incher this year. 


A valiant effort and the best part is the fish went back to more.

Getting camps ready is always a lot of work.  When we get behind, we end up recruiting outside help.  Pete and Pam are no strangers to our camps since Pete worked for us many moons ago, and over the years, he has brought Pam with him on several camp cleaning trips. 

Of course, after the work, I guy has more.

Today is the opening of Walleye season.  This year, we have been “iced out” so our start is just a little late.  BUT… since it is walleye season… I just may be out walleye fishing anytime between now and October.   I may not get to fish often, but when I do it will be with Ignace outposts and I will not be more.

The snow is melting quickly now.  I finally figured out why I haven’t seen Randy for the last few months.

We are still hopeful for iceout soon.  Now that we’ve found Randy, and the walleye are hungry and the northern pike are well trained, we are ready for opener. more.

Last week I was in Toronto to attend a couple of days of meetings.  I sit on a volunteer advisory committee.  As I sat in an office building in downtown Toronto, I couldn’t help but notice the irony.  Our committee is focused on promoting tourism in Northern Ontario, yet here we were in Toronto. 

Compare the view from more.

Make time

Sometimes we have to just sit down and figure out why we are so busy.  If making a living becomes more important than having a life, I think we have to adjust some priorities.   I doubt that at the end of it all our last thoughts will be “I wish I had worked a few more days”. more.
