Back Lake Camping With The Kids ~ Family Cottage Trip


Recommended Posts

One of your best reports Mike. Would have been even better with more pics of your wife. :thumbsup_anim:

 

I'm most happy this trip worked out for you. The kids seemingly managed to have perfect fun and you got some fish for yourself with friends.

 

Ya did a helluvalot better running those rapids than Billy did. :clapping: And the spot doesn't seem too fished out at all. You probably scared them into the deeps when ya jumped overboard to catch 'em. Haha.

 

Good stuff man, enjoyed this one.

Thanks bud, and yeah I did a little better than Billy. Wish someone would have filmed him spinning like a top crashing off the rocks LOL!

 

I didn't mention this in my report 'cause I had no pic's...but Dan's bro in law Richard stumbled onto a glory hole for walleye in his canoe.

You know the island with the marked campsite where I got out for a second? In and around there.

Just putzing around with worm harnesses he nailed over 30, all much larger than the ones sitting in the current.

 

Hope your search is going well and if you're game there's a pretty wicked brook trout trip on tap over labour day weekend. :)

Shooting for Nip myself. May see Bill on his way out. We'll fish again though... you've got an infectious sense for adventure I like.

 

Bought a house. Yep. Done deal. Moving this wednesday. Next stop... furniture shopping, followed by boat and ATV. Kept the Warcanoe... that oughtta turn some heads on the Ottawa River. lol.

She probably would, you done the right thing....LOL

Someday we'll get 'er done. :)

Another excellent report Mike I always enjoy your adventures and good on you for taking all the wee ones ,It is extra work but the smiles show how it was worth it .I itching to sell my 16ft fiberglass canoe and swap it for a sportspal.I already have the Honda 2hp but it is a long shaft I am sure I could adapt.What I like about your adventures is you are all alone out there nothing but peace and quiet.

Awesome report man!!!! Looks like the kids had a great time..

 

I'm sure shooting those rapids on the back lake the proper way is a lot more fun then going down them sideways :)

That might just be the best fishing report I've ever read online. Thanks for sharing it. Looks like the kids had an absolute blast, and I'll bet they remember the experience (and especially that sandpiper) for the rest of their lives.

Once again thanks for the comments everyone. :)

I had some cortisone based cream with my and it seemed to work. By lunchtime the swelling was mostly gone.

That's some pretty heady praise, thanks Craig. You're right about the sandpiper, that's all my daughter talks about.

She chases after all the birds in our backyard now trying to catch them. :)

Absoutetely amazing report. Poor kid , that bug bite looks awful, but she seems ok with it...lol...what a trooper!

 

What camera do you use....those shots are amazing...especially like the one with the kid on the water tube with the dark sky in the background.

 

Thanks for taking the time to post that.

 

Cheers.

Thanks Simon.

I'm definitely no photographer, it's just the law of averages with me that some pic's have to turn out good. :)

In any case it's an Olympus Stylus 790SW. Not a bad camera at all and the reason I bought it, it's Mike proof. (shock proof and waterproof so I can't break it)
