November 2015 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

November 23rd, 2015:  Our season has been over for just over a month now and our Newsletters that we mail out every fall should be in your mailbox this week!  We drove down to Fergus Falls, MN this weekend to mail them out and to participate in our daughter's hockey tournament.  Jordan played well as well as the rest of our team and we ended up in 2nd place for the tournament.  I've really enjoyed being [...]

September 2015 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

September 3rd, 2015: Our season is just getting wrapped up here at Bolton Lake!  We have one group left at Aswap Lake and then a few hunters coming in later in the month to go after big Bull Moose and possibly a bear or two!  We will shutter the lodge for the winter in early October and we might make a trip in this winter to bring in a few supplies and do a bit of ice [...]

August 2015 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

August 2nd, 2015:  Sorry for the delay in posting, my computer was in Winnipeg getting the Hard Drive replaced.  We have had a really nice season with great weather, fishing, staff and guests!  It's a bit cooler today and we've had a couple of showers but I think I prefer this weather to 90 degrees and no wind!  We have not had much rain this year so the water levels have dropped steadily since mid June [...]

July 2, 2015:  The weather has turned pretty warm and the cabbage weeds are coming up!  The Walleye are biting all over the lake and the Lake Trout and Brook Trout have been pretty good too!!  We've already had a couple of 46 and 47 inch Pike, a 31 inch Walleye and a couple of 41 inch Lake Trout.  It's been pretty dry lately and there are forest fires in other areas of the Province so [...]

May 29 2015 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

May 29th, 2015:  In the first week of being open we've gone from 80+ degrees down to about 28 degrees this morning for a low with snow and freezing rain.  It's an unwelcome change but it's May and we've had it pretty good for most of the month and this weather will be gone tomorrow so we'll just keep on fishing!  The fishing has been really good with tons of Walleye, a bunch of trophy Pike [...]

May 2 2015 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

May 2, 2015:  Okay, now it's time to get real busy!  We did our aircraft recurrent training this week, I picked up our 7 new Yamaha 30 hp 4 stroke engines and about 100 other little things I should have been taking care of instead of ice fishing!  Tom has been collecting some real good bear bait, he has a 45 gallon drum of used oil from Fried Chicken restaurants and a couple hundred pounds of [...]

April 2015 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

April 6, 2015:  It's been an uneventful winter up here in Manitoba!  I have stayed busy with travelling through the U.S. to a few different fishing shows to promote the lodge and outpost camps and I've spent the rest of the time just taking care of emails and phone calls.  Our daughter Jordan has been playing hockey all winter and I've spent some time on the ice helping with practices and we just returned from a [...]
