June 1st, 2007: Less than 2 weeks into the season and we’re already settled into a nice routine! Our new chef is getting very high praise and we were very happy to hear more compliments from the 2 new groups we had in last week. Most of them couldn’t believe how friendly our staff was and how they had never had better shore lunches.
Our first ever spring bear hunter was landlocked with a nasty storm of snow and wind for nearly 3 days, but he was still able to shoot what he estimated to be a 300 pound bear. I won’t post the pictures of the snow because I don’t want to scare anybody off! We’re continuing to bait the sites to get the bears used to finding easy meals in the spring so that we can have a successful spring hunt again next year.
The fishing has picked up quite a bit since the snow storm and we’re averaging 4-5 trophies per day now. There have been some trophy Walleye, Pike, Brook Trout, Lake Trout, Whitefish and even a Sucker caught already this season! The guys at Joint Lake have 4 trophy Walleye and a trophy Whitefish so far. Between the 2 different groups at Aswap so far, they’ve landed 5 trophy Pike, one trophy Walleye and a trophy Sucker. Here are some pictures from the past couple of weeks:
