The group who flew into Joint yesterday called in this morning to report that they've already landed a 42 inch Pike and a 38 and a 40 inch Pike! Yesterday at Bolton the [...]

July 24th, 2009: Again with the rain and wind! It's been a tough season for weather, every time we think it's settled in, another storm system comes through. The fishing has been pretty good with the weather we've been getting, the mornings and evenings have been the best. No matter what the fishing has been like, the shore lunches and meals at the lodge have been outstanding according to all of our guests this season!! Some [...]

July 11th, 2009: It's been windy for the past few days but we've got a great forecast for the next few days. Most guests didn't bother fishing yesterday because of the wind and rain but the guests at Joint Lake had no trouble getting out on the river system and had some great success! Today it's still windy but we've got clear skies so most of the guests have decided to get out there. Here are [...]

July 3rd, 2009: It's been a bit windy for a few days here but today the sun is out and the lake is like glass! The wind has made the fishing a bit tougher but we're still managing a few trophies every day. Over the past week we've had a few fly fishermen here testing the waters strictly with fly rods, they were pleasantly surprised by the number and size of the fish they caught on [...]

June 9th, 2009: It's been a very busy couple of weeks getting everything ready, doing our fuel haul and dealing with some rough weather. We've seen snow a few more times but pray that we've seen the last of the snow until October! The fishing has been pretty good considering the weather, especially the trophies! The Lake Trout are still shallow, the Walleye will be in the rivers for a while yet and the Pike are [...]

May 17th, 2009: A crew of us made it into camp today to get everything opened up for the season. We were happy to see that most of the lake is ice free and that there's only a large slab of ice on the main body of the lake that will not last long. We flew over Aswap and Joint Lake and Aswap is completely ice free but Joint Lake still has a large sheet of [...]

May 13th, 2009: I have not been back to the lodge in about 2 weeks but guides Tom and Winston have been giving me updates from Bolton daily. I was shocked a few days ago when they said they launched a boat into our back bay area, now they can get to hole number 1 and Mink Creek and the main lake has some open water and large cracks. With this information, I know that it's [...]
