A Nunavut Nomad IV. Hudson Bay's Coral Char.

Recommended Posts

During July while contracted to work in Coral Harbour, Nunavut, I was treated to six days out on the tundra fishing arctic char.  With rather tempered expectations but high hopes, an unforgettable experience would quite exceed anything I could have imagined ahead of time. This is a heavy picture loaded story inspired from places atop Hudson Bay few will ever visit, written for the spirit of fishing adventure.  Read on if you like...

 Wicked and wild.  Is that the same Brody that used to take awesome pictures, and still does?

Might just be the same fella Chuck..? Brody hasn't been at it long but the CBC Nunavut Facebook page has surely posted a good number of his arctic photos. Would guess that happy kids, huskies and any other animals he can photograph as his favorites but, he certainly did an amazing job on the fish and rainbow shots in this post.

Thanks to those few who read and enjoyed.

Wow dude. incredible! I fished char in nunavut 10 years ago but Im dying to do it again they are such an awesome fish. 

10 years ago I fished char for the first time too. Since then, been back four more times and now basically plan each summer for it.  They are a fish that both ruins your life and makes ya incredibly happy. lol.

Thanks Bill. Plenty practice. The next one will be even better, that's always the goal anyways.

      Not writing nearly as many stories as in the past so this one was more of an undertaking than usual.  Rusty man, but trying to get back into it after some great trips this summer with family, friends and this here solo stint in Nunavut.  But anyhow, combined some play with work while in the Arctic this month and the whole experience unfolded into something different.  Not what I expected at all, though probably what I needed, some cool surprises this was surely one to remember.  Waaaay Up to Vic

      Just double checked with the journal to learn it has been over three months since last fishing.  Spent most of that time in Nunavut working... in plenty dark... and in plenty colder days than here at home, albeit I rarely ventured outside.  On shift and call 24/7 for a month on end, it's the quieter times some evenings and weekends that I gotta keep busy.  Creating some entries for the website was just one of those ways... This bit of a report takes four excerpts from previous trips with on

      Daylight is lasting nearly seven hours up here in Nunavut this month, but cold days dipping into the -40's with -50F windchills have been keeping me indoors a little more than I'd like. A bit stir crazy, the work and on-call hours have helped pass some time, as well as eight seasons of Entourage to watch.  My room-mate and I have been talking char now and again, as he lives full-time in this place atop of Hudson Bay on South Hampton Island.  Last summer he found fish, and plenty of them once he

    • A NUNAVUT NOMAD II. Taloyoak's Caribou, Char & Child.

      The short version or the long? To summarize here, I spent a few weeks in Nunavut this August working in an awesome little place named Taloyoak. This tundra town in the Kitikmeot region is Canada’s furthest north settlement on our mainland. Rugged and very remote, here Arctic life and culture rule. Lucky to have free time and a fishing pole, on some days off I was able to search and find char, lake trout, caribou and more while out on the beautiful barren lands. A full story with many outdoo
