Gone Fishing!

Heading up to Canada for a week long fishing trip at Deer Horn Lodge in the Réserve faunique La Vérendrye, which is about 4 hours north of Montreal.  My father and I have been going to Deer Horn Lodge since I was 16 years old and I will never forget the first day we were there and we asked the owner where to fish and in his broken English he simply said "Out there" and pointed to the lake.  Maybe I should have asked where is the best place to fish.  So we went out there and came back with this:

A 44 inch, 28 lb Northern Pike

The last time we were up here (2008) we did OK with catching Walleye, caught very little pike, but did pretty well going for Lake Trout. This year, however, could prove to be really interesting give the fact that the Cabonga Reservoir is down 5 feet that many of the back coves that we like to fish are now inaccessible.  I have learned that it sounds like water is being let back into the reservoir and they are no longer letting it empty out. Not sure if that means what was inaccessible one or two weeks ago will be open now.  Never the less, it will be interesting!

I am going to post daily updates on yet another one of my blogs, Eatsleepfish if you want to follow how I am doing each day fishing.  Of course, if I come across any good cycling snacks along the way there I will be sure to post them here, too!
