Around the Campfire
with Steve and the staff
It was a very busy year at camp this year. Our first guests arrived around May 15th and the type of fishing became apparent with big fish being caught from the start. Ice out was in March and the bass were up and running early.
Well, for the first time at camp, we have a repeat winner of the "Big Fish of the Year"! Steve Craig caught a 21 1/4 inch Small mouth to claim another year. The fish weighing in at about 5 1/4 lbs. was a toughie to land due to numerous jumps and peeling of the drag. He eventually ended up in the net, but the most important fact is, the fish was released! Congratulations to Steve! He will receive a free day of guiding next year, and an engraved case guide knife, and his picture will be placed in the lodge. Last year we initiated a $2.00 entrance fee for the contest with the proceeds being donated to charity. The camp is gld to report that with a matching amount from the camp, we were able to donate $150.00 to the Ronald MacDonald House of Bangor. We thank everyone who participated.
Our guests caught a few landlocked salmon during June and July this year which was a good thing to see. We are currently working on having more Salmon stocked in Big Lake which will only increase this type of fishing in years to come. All guests are reminded that if salmon fishing is something you have wanted to try, we have guides that will take you to various lakes for a day to do this.
Now, it's time for our yearly wildlife quiz. It's easy to identify the above bird, but how many tail feathers does it have? First correct e-mail answer to us wins a prize from the tackle shop.
The staff and I got to make a lot of new friends this year and it was always nice to see our veterans return. Have a good and healthy winter and we hope to see all of you next year!! Fish on!!.......Steve and the staff.......................
