December 19, 2003 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

December 19, 2003: Jodi and I just returned from our annual vacation to somewhere hot, this year it was Mexico. It was nice to relax and not worry about things for a while. The Sportshows are less than two weeks away! We're trying to contact those guests who have not confirmed their final numbers or do not have a deposit in yet. We will try to hold on to a spot as long as possible, but [...]

November 26, 2003 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

November 26, 2003: Happy Thanksgiving to all our American Guests!!! In Canada we celebrated our Thanksgiving back in October, so we're at work this week. Fell free to call or email, it's very rare for anyone calling to get an answering machine - even in the evening. We like to be available to take a call just about anytime so we forward our toll free number to our homes in the evening.

November 20, 2003 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

November 20th, 2003: Not too much new going on lately. We're getting ready for the Sportshows, click here for our schedule, and we received some very positive feedback on our Newsletter. Bookings for 2004 are looking great! We have a few outpost spots left spread throughout the season and the lodge is almost completely sold out of June dates. Unfortunately, we're not going to make as much when we go to trade in our U.S. dollars [...]

November 4, 2003 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

November 4th, 2003: It's been a very busy fall, sorry for the lack of updates. I've been to Vancouver to visit my sister, Montreal to fish for giant Musky and to Texas to buy a fishing boat. I've also been busy putting together next year's schedule, making the Newsletters and making a new brochure for Elk Island Lodge. We're driving down to Pembina, ND tomorrow to stamp and mail nearly 3800 newsletters. If you do not [...]

September 25, 2003 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

September 25th, 2003: We're back from closing up the camps. I have a few days to get my Newsletters started and then I'm going out East to catch my first Musky. If all goes well, we will be able to recommend a great spot for fall Muskies. We spent the last couple of weeks at our other lodge on God's Lake (Elk Island Lodge). The weather turned cold, windy and we had lots of rain in [...]

September 2, 2003 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

September 2nd, 2003: The season has just about come to an end at Bolton Lake. There are a couple more outpost groups to come, but the lodge is shut down for the season. Please use our Winnipeg email address ( info@boltonlake.com ) to send pictures or ask questions. We had a great ending to our best season ever. Even though Canada / U.S. relations were at an all time low, our bookings were actually up from [...]

August 6, 2003 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

August 6th: We're in the middle of another fantastic week of fishing here at Bolton Lake and we have one fisherman out to break some records. Bryan Robb has caught 5 master angler Pike (all 41 inches or better) in 2 days. He's not doing anything different than most other anglers except he's not missing anything! Usually, even for the professional fisherman, you only catch half the trophy fish you see, but Bryan is converting every [...]

July 29, 2003 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

July 29th: The weather has been so hot lately that staff and guests are swimming just about every night. High sun and no wind has slowed the fishing, but we're still pulling an average of 2 trophies a day. It's raining today, but the forecast is calling for more sunny hot weather towards the end of the week. Here are a couple more pictures that were just sent to me from a guest who was at [...]

It was an extra pleasant week because my family came [...]
