We're all super-busy doing things

Now that the ice is off we are just completing the things that we would normally have done two weeks before the fishing opener. I've had to make trips to town on successive days to get gasoline and diesel fuel plus groceries.
None of the infrastructure systems has worked correctly, requiring me to check, adjust, re-check and re-adjust things every few hours, day and night, until we can get these systems running correctly.
I just can't get up early enough, walk fast enough or carry enough tools to get everything going. Thankfully the weather has turned beautiful. It has been in the 70s and 80s F (20s and 30s C) all week.
And, thank goodness, the fishing has been spectacular, at least for northern pike and lake trout.
Just about everybody has caught many, many big pike and at least some big lake trout.
The same can't be said for walleyes. We've only caught a few, mostly big ones. The walleye bite should begin any day now with all the warm weather we have been having.

It's great to see that all the guests are catching very nice fish. Opening week was slow but we caught our share of big pike. I caught and released a 19 lb. 8 oz. pike on the last day in camp. You'll never guess where I caught it at? In the lake of course. Tell Joe I said nice fish and I know exactly where he caught it at too. I'll be watching the blog for all the great news about the fish being caught at Bow Narrows.
