In July of this year I spent an unforgettable week on Eagle Lake with 32 fishermen during our traditional family and friends Canadian fishing trip. I’ve been going since I was 7 years old. This year was the first time it became my responsibility to coordinate the trip. Not a small task, but worth the effort. I’m working on a longer write-up of the trip to share, but I wanted to give everyone a heads-up. There were many more friends and family who couldn’t attend who I know will enjoy hearing more about the fishing, card playing, shenanigans, antics, accommodations, and fun.

We caught plenty of Northern Pike, Walleye and even some Musky. It really took some skill and knowledge to find the fish this year due to a few conditions I’ll explain in the next article about the trip. Thank goodness we had some skilled fishermen on the trip, and also, thank goodness for Peg and Bob at Temple Bay Lodge. They run a great outfit and are really wonderful people.
