June 30th, 2018 Update

By | June 30th, 2018|2016|

So it's been a while since I've posted on my page as I've been doing fairly regular Facebook posts but for those who are not on Facebook, here's a big update on what we've been up to.  Last season we struggled with excessive rains which made our runway unusable on at least 6 days when we needed to bring in airplanes.  So I spent $150,000 on equipment and building a winter road to get some more [...]

July 2017

By | July 22nd, 2017|2017|

July has been a much nicer month for weather than June was!  The fishing has been great, we've had tons of really nice Walleye, some big Lake Trout and the Pike fishing has been good too!  The Pike have not been as easy to find compared to most years because of the excessive rains in June and subsequent lack of weed growth but they are still here and we're still finding them, but some in odd [...]

June 2017 Update

By | June 17th, 2017|2016|

Our season is well underway and it's been interesting!  We expected an early ice out, but in fact it was a bit late however just in time for our first guests!  We expected the water levels to start off quite high but they were just below average and now with all the rain we've had, the water level is quite high.  We have never seen so many days of rain and tough weather in such a [...]

January 2017 Update

I'm getting ready to hit the road with Tom to promote fishing and hunting at Bolton Lake and our Outpost Camps!  We will be in St. Charles, IL starting on Thursday at the All Canada Show with a ton of great exhibitors and displays!  The All Canada Shows promote only Canadian fishing and hunting destinations, they have great speakers, some nice boats and a pretty good shore lunch.  For tackle, Thorne Brothers set up a pretty [...]

Fall 2016 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

By | October 17th, 2016|2016|

October 17th, 2016: Our season has come to an end and we're back in Winnipeg until May 2017! It was a great season for fishing and bear hunting but we were disappointed with our moose hunting season. In that light, we will no longer be offering moose hunts. I have had great personal success both guiding and on my own with moose hunting but the pressure to produce when the moose and weather will not cooperate [...]

July 2016 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

By | July 13th, 2016|2016|

July 13th, 2016:  Well that time flew by!  It's been a great season with lots of big fish already, some pretty good weather for the most part and a great season for staff!  Our pilot Marc and his helper Isaac are doing an excellent job keeping the outposts clean and running smoothly.  They are both very hard working and they make sure the guests have everything they need for their trips.  Heather, Kelly, Deane and Jackie [...]

June 18, 2009 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

By | June 18th, 2016|2009|

June 18th, 2009: It's been a funny season for weather so far this year, we've seen snow more often than I've ever seen in late May and June and now we've had three 80 degree days in a row! It's a bit cooler today, but we're okay with that. These drastic changes in weather has made it tough to pattern the fish but we're still getting trophies every day. One of the best days this year [...]

June 2016 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

By | June 4th, 2016|2016|

June 4th, 2016: Wow, time flies when you're getting camp ready for the season!! We've been open a couple of weeks now and back in camp since early May. We started off with just a small crew of staff bringing in freight and getting things going. It wasn't the smoothest opening ever but the staff really pulled together and accomplished a lot in what felt like a short time! Barry and Willie took care of a [...]

February 2016 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

By | February 9th, 2016|2016|

February 9th, 2016: Well the All Canada Shows have come and gone and it was great to see many familiar faces at the shows! In Chicago, St. Charles to be more precise, the show was very busy and it was good that I brought a friend along to help answer questions and talk fishing! We were both busy talking most of the show and we celebrated with a Blackhawks game on Sunday night, compliments of a [...]

January 2016 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

By | January 5th, 2016|2016|

January 5, 2016:  Happy New Year!  It's been a very mild winter in Manitoba so far this year so I haven't been able to get out ice fishing very much and the winter roads may not be built at all this year!  Creeks are still open and lakes barely have enough ice for snowmobiles so it's very unlikely that they will build enough ice for the heavy trucks.  I was planning to bring in 4 new [...]
