Camp Jiggy Jiggy Report

Recommended Posts

Well after the Lakair G2G, and a few days of work, it was time to take back off to camp for a few nites over the July long weekend. Camp is finally pretty much set up and except for some cleanup and organizing there's finally no work to do, except the mandatory wood cutting and trail cleaning. Things were pretty uneventful, a little rainy, and the skeeters were bad only on the first nite, so all in all it was a very relaxing trip with lots of decent fish being caught by everyone.. really I caught a few too?? We did Stop at the MacEwans Gas Station in Latchford and picked up some cheap Lucky Strike spoons which we drug around and did very well on. Fluorescent Orange works well on the Montreal River, as well as Brass/Red. The spoons were under $2 each so we picked up the whole card full!! The guy at that station really helped me out of a trailer bearing bind, so I try to stop in and gas up every chance I get!

 

The wildlife was out in full form.. didn't get any pictures though, but, this trip we saw 4 different species of ducks, a lynx walking along the shoreline 50 feet from the boat... that was AMAZING, 1 moose and 5 bears, two of them were very small cubs with their mothers.. very very cute!!! (for now)

 

Here's some pictures and a couple of videos form the trip!

 

 

 

This guy visited with us all week.. hes a bit fatter now than he was...

Excellent report as usual TJ. I kinda feel at home at Camp Jiggy Jiggy already!

 

BTW, that hold of Monique's is the famous "Cross Your Heart" hold. :thumbsup_anim:

 

Thanks for showing us the pics and telling the story. Also a tip of the ol' OFC hat for not giving away the GPS coordinates.

Another Awesome Jiggy Jiggy report. You guys are so lucky.

 

I think those are wood ducks, but I'm not positive.

looks nice as always, glad your getting to spend some time up their in heaven, we are heading that way on the 28th, going to tent camp the whole trip this year, for a rugged mans tour, if your in the area you guys should come on back, we are going to be going back the old rough road and stay on the island with the sand beach i think. cant wait to get there.

Great shots, nice trip. That's what it's all about. Hard to tell sometimes with young ducks that don't have adult plumage yet but I'm guessing a brood of young redheads.

Looks like a grand to me was had by all TJ. The game Sorry is very popular around our house also, Sydney and Amanda win most often though.

The ducks are young Goldeneyes, they usually nest in hollow tree cavities like old woodpecker holes
