January 3 2011 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

By | January 3rd, 2011|2011|

January 3rd, 2011:  With a hectic fall and early winter behind me, I'm excited to get started on the Sport Show Trail!  Later this week I'm heading down with Tom to St. Louis, then on to Indy, Chicago and Milwaukee.  After these shows, there's a bit of a break and then I do a few shorter trips to Omaha, Minneapolis and Phoenix.  We might try to take a trip into Bolton Lake in between shows by [...]

By | November 8th, 2010|2010|

November 8th, 2010:  We have moved into our new house and we're seeing deer almost daily in our backyard!  I've taken a couple of days for a bit of Whitetail hunting but have spent most of my time getting the old house ready to sell and setting up the new house with an office and work shop area for my outboard engines and other equipment.  I managed to get a doe last week and hope to [...]

September 28th, 2010:  The season is officially over at the lodge but Tom is still hanging around at the lodge looking for moose and getting a bit of work done.  The water continued coming up into September but has finally started to drop over the past 2 weeks.  Unfortunately the damage was done before the water dropped back down.  The top of our main dock was ripped off it's cribs by the wind and waves and [...]

August 25th, 2010:  Our season is almost over for another year, 2011 is shaping up very nicely already with commitments from the bulk of the staff and from most of the guests from this season rebooking for 2011!!  I'm spending the next 3 weeks at the lodge taking care of the flying for our guests at Aswap Lake and getting a lot of work done around camp.  It's been difficult over the past few days to [...]

August 13th, 2010:  Wow, we have had a lot of rain here over the past few weeks.  With just a few good down pours, the lake has risen 3 feet and it looks like it's going to come up again after this rain finally stops.  We think it might be over the main dock by the end of the season if it continues like this!  The higher water did not slow down the big Pike, but [...]

July 26th, 2010:  It's been hot up at the lodge lately!  Luckily in the evenings it's been cooling down to sleep and we've had some over night showers to keep us cool!  It's been a nice mix of trophy Pike, Walleye and Lake Trout lately, but we haven't been to the Brook Trout river much at all this month.  Can't wait to get back, they'll all be ready to hit again! Enjoy some more pictures!: [...]

July 13th, 2010:  Some more great fishing over the past week!  Dan and Bill who were part of my last update continued their streak of great Pike fishing and ended the week with 8 Pike 41 inches and bigger!!  Other guests in camp also had a great week finding big fish and the guys at Aswap had a great time with the big Pike!  They landed 14 Pike over 40 inches!!  This is followed by the [...]

July 5th, 2010: We still have not seen a lot of rain yet this season but the water has come up almost a foot on our lakes because of the rains all around us, especially from the south.  We've had a few really good days of fishing recently and some individual successes that should impress the most avid fishermen!  Just yesterday 2 fishermen, Bill and Dan arrived from Winnipeg along with another group who was going [...]

June 28th, 2010:  I've been updating our facebook page a bit more often, that's why I've updated this page less than usual. The weather is very cool, cloudy and windy today but it's not going to last!  We've had a good run of trophies as well, very consistent unlike many years where there's one lucky week when all the stars align and a dozen trophies per day are caught.  We're averaging 3-5 trophies per day which [...]

June 16th, 2010:  The weather has been very warm lately and the fishing has been hot!  More big Pike, Walleye and Lake Trout are being caught every day and the Brook Trout have been good every time we take the day trip over to the river!  The outposts are doing well, trophies from both Joint Lake and Aswap Lake are being caught weekly by the groups.
