December 20 2012 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

December 20, 2012:  Happy Holidays!!  It sure looks like Christmas up here in Winnipeg!  We have lots of snow and ice and it's been a much colder winter this year than last and we're less than a month into it!  Up North they're saying we have a record amount of snow, there's pretty good ice but with all that snow there's going to be a lot of slush as well.  Tom and I have been talking [...]

October 16 2012 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

October 16th, 2012:  Fall is such a great time of year!  The lodge is all closed up for the season and we're back home with family and friends.  We can now take some time to look back on the season and reflect upon our triumphs.  Everybody we run into at this time of year always asks how was the season?  With the incredible fishing and fantastic weather the season has to be considered a complete success.  [...]

September 10 2012 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

September 10th, 2012:  Things have wrapped up for the fishing season at Bolton Lake, what an amazing season for big Pike!!  The Lake Trout, Walleye and Brook Trout all cooperated very well too but the trophy Pike count was off the charts!  We finished off the season with a great group at Aswap Lake who caught 20 trophy Pike and had a bunch of other ones on.  The say that one in the 50 inch range [...]

August 8 2012 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

August 8th, 2012:  The fishing is still going strong here at Bolton Lake!!  We have run out of trophy cards so now we're cutting them out of the fishing guides, the fishing has just been outstanding this year and we're a long way ahead of our normal trophy count!  The weather has been much more comfortable, highs in the 60's and 70's for the most part and only a couple of days have been a bit [...]

July 26 2012 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

July 26th, 2012:  This season has probably been the best season for fishing that I have seen in over 20 years of being here on Bolton Lake!  There hasn't been a day without a trophy and there have been so many days with 6, 8 and even 12 trophies!  Almost every group has commented on how great the fishing has been this year, the best most of them have ever seen as well!  The weather has [...]

July 23 2012 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

June 23rd, 2012:  June is always such a busy month!  Actually since early May I think I've taken about 4 afternoons to relax and I've been fishing twice and we won't really get any kind of break until late July.  I'm excited that our daughter, Jordan will be here in about a week, it's been far too long since I've seen her but we've been talking with her regularly and she's doing well and having fun. [...]

July 16 2012 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

July 16th, 2012:  Record setting temperatures and record setting fishing!!  It's been really hot lately and I don't just mean the weather!  Just to put things into perspective, our last group of 20 guests had 30 trophies including a few 29 inch Walleye, a 22 inch Brook Trout, a 38 inch Lake Trout and a 46 inch Pike!!!   It's really makes my day when our guests have the fishing that I know is possible on our [...]

July 5 2012 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

July 5th, 2012:  I have a ton of pictures to load here, the fishing has been excellent over the past 10 days!!  The big Pike have just started to move into the weed patches and we've been catching them every day!  It's windy today and we've had a few showers but the temperatures have been very comfortable (in the 70's) and great for fishing.  The guides have all been commenting on the size and weight of [...]

June 11 2012 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

June 11th, 2012:  We started this morning with rain, low clouds and very cool temperatures.  The rain turned to sleet and then snow, and it continued to snow most of the morning.  The winds were howling from the North for most of the day, but they have dropped back now and we have some nice blue sky again.  Yesterday was a very busy day, we moved 68 guests, 19 of them were moved twice including the [...]
