December 27, 2007 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

December 27, 2007: It's been a busy fall for Jodi and I! We built a new garage on our property at home near Winnipeg in order to store stuff for the lodge and to make room for some of my ice fishing gear! We made some time to take a vacation for a week in Cuba so we'll have some cigars available at the lodge this year. We had a great Christmas with a lot of [...]

October 16, 2007 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

October 16, 2007: The lodge is officially shut down for the season! The bear and moose hunt was very successful this year, and we're excited to show some great pictures! The hunt started off with Tom and I going to Aswap Lake to practice calling, see what the moose were doing and to see if we could take a nice bull or a calf for meat for the winter. We spent 4 days running around the [...]

September 5, 2007 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

September 5, 2007: The outposts and the lodge are just about done for the season. Tomorrow we take out the last group from Joint Lake and do the shut down, then on Sunday we take the last group out of Aswap and shut down that cabin. We took the boats and motors out of the Brook Trout River and here's a link of some of the fun we had that day: It's myself, T2 (Trevor the [...]

August 16, 2007 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

August 16th, 2007: Things are starting to wind down at the lodge now, we still have about a week left before the lodge is emptied out, then the outposts empty out by September 10th and then the moose and bear hunters come in for a couple of weeks at the end of September. The weather has been a bit cool and windy for the first half of August, but the weather is supposed to start improving [...]

August 9, 2007 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

August 9th, 2007: We've had another great run of trophy fish lately, but for early August the weather has been very unpredictable. Normally we can count on warm days with the occasional thunderstorm, but we've been weathered out for flying already twice this month and the forecast is calling for rain almost every day this week. Fortunately we were still able to move all our guests, but there were some delays and some missed flights departing [...]

July 30, 2007 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

July 30th, 2007: It's been a hot couple of weeks with the weather and the fishing!!! So many big Pike, so little time! Today alone there were 4 trophies and one 40 inch Pike, and the day isn't over yet! More great family stories to be told. Robin and her husband Bob along with her parents Ed and Leonora came up and landed a bunch of trophies. Robin had 2 trophy Brook Trout and a trophy [...]

July 16, 2007 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

July 16th, 2007: The weather has finally turned to summer here, it's about 75 degrees and sunny with just a little breeze! They're calling for nothing but sunshine all week, so everybody is happy, especially the guides who have been out in a lot of nasty weather this year. There have been a bunch of trophy Pike and a few trophy Walleye caught over the past week including 2 more 45 inch Pike. Last week I [...]

June 26, 2007 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

June 26th, 2007: Sorry for the lack of updates, it's been suggested that I call them bi-weekly updates! The weather and the fishing have been up and down lately. We seem to be getting rain every other day which I guess keeps the grass green and the forest fires away so we can't complain too hard. It's a bit cooler today with a north east wind and it's suppose to rain at some point in the [...]

June 12, 2007 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

June 12th, 2007: The fish are really starting to bite now. Last week we had huge success with Pike, Walleye, Lake Trout and Brook Trout! The big Pike were really feeding hard despite some rough weather and quite a bit of wind. One angler managed to land 4 trophy Pike himself using the big Bulldawgs! Normally I use smaller lures at this time of year but they were hitting the big stuff right away. The weather [...]
