Well lets hope summer is here to stay now and let the fishing begin in earnest.
We have done very well on the lakes so far this year and the addition of Lac Ste Anne has been a real bonus for us with great catches of walleye and pike and very little boat traffic. Then there is Jackfish Lake which has been a little slower this year for some reason but we still catch a decent amount of nice walleye on this pretty little lake. Lake Wabamum has yielded some awesome pike for us this year with the largest being caught on a fly by Jorde Nathan. He had a great day of pike fishing on the fly by boating 20 decent fish but the icing on the cake was his 41 inch beauty. The fish put up a great fight for him and when we landed the fish in the cradle Jorde’s smile went from ear to ear. Check that off of his list of fish to catch on the fly.
Our second in command Randy Bertrand aka. Bubbles has now completed all his requirements for becoming our third guide to now have his Certified Freshwater Angling Guide certification. This makes Get Hooked the only company to not only have one guide certified but all three main guides. Our newest guide Brian Lindsay will get some more trips under his belt before he takes the course. He is going to be another great guide working with us, welcome aboard Brian.
The river is dropping finally and we should be on it very soon. I know there is a lot of you out there just waiting to get on it. We know we can’t wait. If you have a date in mind please let us know as the August, September and October dates fill up fast and we have several filled now.
Hope to see or hear from you soon.
Just on a side note myself and my girlfriend went on the IceField Heli Tour this past weekend down near the Cline River. All I can say is that was one of the most incredible things I have done and owner Ralph Sliger was a great pilot/guide on this incredible journey. If you ever get a chance do it you will never regret it.
