2011 Ontario Fishing Opener
Well folks the 2011 Ontario Fishing Opener has arrived and passed us. We have been blessed with beautiful weather over the past few days. It has been in the Mid -70's already which seems a bit on the warm side for this time of year already. The water temp on the beach at our Shab Island Outpost's is already around 62 degrees. Wow!
We have flown in most of the new boats and all of the new motors already. Flying in the new boats takes some time as they have to be carefully tied to the airplane as to be sure it does not come off in flight.
Reports from our outpost camps are good with many guests catching a good number of fish. With the water warming up so quickly the fish have quickly moved from most usual spring hot spots. The guys at Shab North and Shab Island have had fun catching Brook Trout in the Shabuskwia River during the ice out run. Many guests come just for the Brook Trout... I think they taste better than Salmon!
I have added a picture of Dave and a picture of a Lake Trout he recently caught on Smoothrock Lake. Many of you remember Dave and Becky as they were the island attendents on Shab for several years.
