  1. Thanks all. Heading out again this weekend. Need to find some places to atv in for fishing this summer, combine 2 passions! Andrew
  2. Thanks all! so far so good. My brother bought a newer 750 Grizzly in the fall and I was impressed. Just started watching kijiji and Facebook and found this one cheers Andrew
  3. It’s been a long time between posts. Life has been pretty busy and I haven’t had a ton of fun time I did however just purchase a new to me ATV. A 2011 Yamaha Grizzly 550. Had her out last weekend on the trails by my brothers cottage and I think I am hooked! Andrew
  4. Thanks for sharing. A lake and outfitter high on my list but we couldn’t make it work for our 2024 trip Overall just looks like a beautiful lake both in the fishing and the scenery side cheers Andrew
  5. On our fly in trips we use Helix 5 2 portables. Great units have the bells and whistles we like plus more we don’t really use We did upgrade to Dakota lithium 12 V batteries. Depending on how you fish may or may not be relevant but on a week long fly in w limited charging sources the longer run time is great Andrew
  6. It’s been a while since my last post. Life has been busy but sitting squarely in the shoulder season I finally go around to one Each trip I take I try to get up early, have a coffee and jot down notes about the previous day. Some of its useless ramblings (a lot of it) but on our recent trip I managed to capture a few key insights I thought I would share https://www.northernjacks.com/post/5-things-i-learned-on-miniss-lake Cheers Andrew
  7. Thanks for all the comments I have quite a few Victorinox pocket knives but have never looked at their larger blades. Will check them out Andrew
  8. Thanks. I think I fixed it. My brother bought the one you are talking about and is also happy with it. And you are right. Great value for a solid knife cheers Andrew
  9. Ever since I was a little kid I have loved knives Pocket knives, belt knives and multi tools, I love them all. I was recently in the market for a new one, something for our fly in and canoe trips. Here’s a review of the knife I chose https://www.northernjacks.com/post/product-review-morkniv-hd-companion Cheers Andrew
  10. Awesome. Glad it went/is going well those are some solid fish! Andrew
  11. One lure I used to loath was a hot n tot It seemed like every Ontario outfitter listed it as a must have for walleye but I never seemed to have any luck with them despite trying Fast forward to a trip w my FIL and he absolutely slayed fish on the tot all week. Fished w him for a day and got the hang of it (as short a line as possible to get it slamming the bottom) and it became a staple for me. Probably my number 1 trolling lure on fly ins Not a lure per se but I have had very little luck “frogging” for bass. Any fish I have caught have been pike lol. Not saying it’s not effective just hasn’t panned out for me to date Andrew
  12. As much as I like to think of myself as the star of my fishing trips, my newest post focuses on the real hero (or villain), the lake. So many factors to consider and with so many lakes to choose from it can be overwhelming Our first fly in was on a small lake which was perfect but over time we have shifted to preferring large complex lakes Anyway here is my take on things to consider https://www.northernjacks.com/post/how-to-choose-the-best-lake-for-your-fly-in-fishing-trip Cheers Andrew
  13. Thanks Doug. I enjoy it. Seems to extend the “high” of the trip a little longer Thanks!
