of '02 we flew in to two Ontario lakes. We spent a
week at Sydney Lake in July and six days at Wasa Lake
in August. On our Wasa trip, my eldest and youngest girls found this
incredible 48" moose rack along the shore
of adjacent Marshalok Lake, which was accessible via
30 minutes of motoring through a beautiful winding
Wilderness Air pilot just shook his head when we told
him we wanted to pack it out with us. With a little
creative packing, it left the bush with us and it now
adorns the wall of my great room. What an incredible find! :-0
is "shore lunch" on Marshalok Lake. My
eldest daughter got complacent while unhooking a fish
on this trip. It flipped and buried a hook into the knuckle
of her thumb way past the shank. She knew medical
attention would be a long time coming and elected to
hook back out with pliers. It crunched all the way
out. It actually hurt to listen to it! She was back
fishing 10 minutes later. Dodged a bullet on that
one! :-0 We'll be heading back to Wasa in July/August of '03 for another 7 day trip.
Counting the days.....
is Wasa Lake in August '02. We had so much fun here it literally
hurt to come back to the States!
Lake is very large - about 20,000 acres versus
our past fly-in lakes of about 500-700 acres. GPS units were
standard equipment in both boats. We left our mark on
Sydney as evidenced above.
six-year-old gets the big fish of the Sydney trip.
24.5" walleye with full moon in the background.
Kinda tough to beat! :D
