  1. So I have no experience with the lake or Air Cochrane it looks like Audrey is fairly shallow w a few deep holes. In August I would tend to start deep or focus on areas w current I had posted two articles a while back based on my groups trips https://www.northernjacks.com/post/top-5-walleye-lures-for-northern-ontario https://www.northernjacks.com/post/walleye-magnets The other tip would be to check satellite maps of the lake and look for irregularities re mid lake humps, main points, island and large weed beds Also push your outfitter for a map of spots to start Its in their best interest to ensure you catch fish best of luck sounds like an awesome outing Please share how you make out Andrew
  2. Sometimes when I can't sleep at night I count fish instead of sheep lol Specifically I revisit some of my favorite memories from trips I have taken For whatever reason it really works and I rarely get past 4 memories before I drift off Here's a few of my favorites https://www.northernjacks.com/post/counting-fish Cheers Andrew
  3. No problem Someone linked to Mike Borger’s site https://www.canadafishingguide.net. He has done a lot of trips w Air Dale and has trip reports up I did two trips w White River air and my reports are here https://www.northernjacks.com/post/50-mission-cap-our-first-fly-in and here https://www.northernjacks.com/post/looking-for-a-fish-to-happen Cheers Andrew
  4. I think most outfitters will have a lake or two where they will take a small group in the fall this year may be a little tougher with the late border opening I know White River Air has a few lakes where they will do two and I believe Air Dale out of Wawa does as well best of luck Andrew
  5. Looks like a great trip. Some really nice fish there. The colours on some of the smallies and that musky are incredible Thanks for sharing Andrew
  6. Looks like an awesome trip - thanks for sharing Andrew
  7. Glad to see this news - I know the outfitters that I have chatted with are thrilled Cheers Andrew
  8. I have been packing my gear this week as me and the guys get ready for a 3 night canoe trip in Algonquin I have been using this bag for a few years now - I take it on my fly in trips, boat ins or drive tos - it sometimes makes an appearance when we head to the boat access cottage Its been a great purchase so far - full review here https://www.northernjacks.com/post/product-review-eureka-75l-canoe-pack Cheers! Andrew
  9. My attention span is typically pretty bad - except for fishing Recently I spent an few hours in the rain at the cottage just casting - with only a small rock bass to show for it - yet I kept on going As I pondered why I came to the conclusion that its because I am waiting for the unexpected, the fluke or the monster sitting just off that one lily pad Its a fishing memory post about some of my favorites unexpected fish from a fly in, musky fishing in Hali and off the dock in Muskoka https://www.northernjacks.com/post/the-unexpected Cheers Andrew
  10. Enjoyed that read today = thanks for sharing - great start to your year Andrew
  11. I am a little late to this but I am a big fan of my BPS Pro Qualifier suit - for 2 years I just asked for BPS gift certs for any gift giving occasion and eventually had enough to buy the suit Only downfall is BPS doesn't seem to make that line anymore - price/insulation wise it was one step below the 100 MPH series When I bought mine the gentlemen who helped me pushed my towards the lighter of the two suits, and advised to buy 1 size up since I did most of my fishing from May until September - that was I could wear it when really hot with shorts and a t shirt and when colder layer underneath - must say it was great advice. I have had my suit for 7 years now and it still works as it should Cheers Andrew
  12. Another tales from post This time I had the pleasure of chatting with Glenn Matthews Glenn and his group have taken 14 trips out of Nakina with the same outfitter Was a great chat and I certainly have some new lakes added to the never ending “check it out” file https://www.northernjacks.com/post/tales-from-nakina Cheers and thanks for the look Andrew PS always on the lookout to chat w others. If interested feel free to PM me to figure out if there’s an opportunity
  13. I’ve never been to any of the lodges or camps in Quebec but I will say for a first time trip w kids Shag is into something about looking at smaller lakes or more remote lakes My groups first fly was to a small lake w White River and it was magical Small enough that we weren’t daunted by figuring it out and great fishing so we never got bored No experience with them but I do know that Air Tamarac in Clova has quite a following for their Lac Hebert and Lac Charlotte camps Pretty sure if you search this site there is a Lac Charlotte report somewhere if you google Kipawa there is a different community built by those who love the lake and the area as well cheers and best of luck. Sounds like a great adventure Andrew
  14. Wow. Great report thanks for sharing! Some nice looking fish and awesome scenery cheers Andrew

    Sadly there is no fly in trip planned for 2021. New jobs for a few in our group have us staying closer to home (we are meeting up this evening to pick our 2022 destination though). Bigger outing will be in Algonquin mainly paddling and camping but will definitely wet a line for trout (although I suck at trout fishing) Will also spend some time at the cottage and get out locally on the yak https://www.northernjacks.com/post/summer-2021-plans As always thanks for reading Andrew
