[size=4][font=Verdana]First Time guests at Fireside Lodge were Mark Jones, and good friends father and son Timmy, and Josh McDaniel all from Pembroke, VA. Mark had been referred to us by a Fireside Lodge guest and has been reading our Fireside Lodge Fishing Reports for years finally deciding to make the trip for their first Canadian Wilderness Fishing Adventure. DOA day on the water was very windy which is tough on anyone especially if you’re new to a lake. They managed and all caught fish, a mix of Smallmouth Bass and Northern Pike. 1st day was tougher facing severe cold front conditions that came in during the evening before. It came with high winds and cold rain.  They still persevered catching some Pike and Smallmouth.

2nd day they did good catching Northern Pike by the Smallmouth Bass seemed to be difficult for them to make contact with so we discussed some new techniques and locations for them to try. Day 3 they did very good on Smallmouth Bass concentrating on the depth of 8-10 ft. and using a slow or do nothing approach with the excellent worms they make. 4th day these three had a fabulous day finding the Smallmouth Bass hitting well on the surface, having perfect overcast and calm conditions, catching many Smallmouth throughout they day. 5th day they had another very good day catching mostly Pike.

6th and final day was another very good day catching many Smallmouth Bass along with some Northern Pike. Before supper while checking out and giving me their fish pictures, as they intended to leave early in the morning before breakfast, saying they will only see me again if they caught a picture fish. Well at the end of the evening fish they came to see me with picture of a 17.5-inch Smallmouth and Josh caught an 18-inch Master Anglers Award Trophy Smallmouth Bass. What a GREAT way to end a special and memorable fishing trip. All said they will be back.

Jeff Wilson from the Burlington, ON here for his 4th time arrived with his brother Craig from Hubbard, Nova Scotia returning for his 5th trip. DOA these two did very well catching 7 Northern Pike a Muskie and seeing several other very Large Musky, plus landed 3 large Smallmouth Bass. 1st day they did great catching 50+ Smallmouth Bass, each landing a Master Anglers Award Smallmouth Bass over 18-inches and surprisingly a lot of action was on top-water despite the windy, wavy conditions.

2nd day was spent chasing Muskie having dozens of follows, landing two plus they caught a couple of HUGE Smallmouth Bass with Musky Bucktails, Craig’s having a very impressive girth. 3rd day they caught about 10 nice Pike before supper and had a planning session in the dinning room and caught a few more in the evening fish. Day four Jeff had some battery issues with his boat taking up a half day, but they made the most of it catching a nice mix of Smallmouth Bass and Northern Pike. 5th day was a very explosive literally getting a very active top-water bite catching large Smallmouth Bass and several large Muskie with a few Pike in the mix. They caught anything from Trophy Smallmouth Bass to Musky in the 38-inch range. They were so pumped and excited that they came in the lodge and to show me their very impressive pictures.

6th and final day they both said was unreal, catching 32 very large Smallmouth Bass and 20 were 18-19-inch Master Anglers Award Trophy Smallmouth Bass, 6 Northern Pike and a big Muskie, all while fishing surface lures. It was just the perfect day with calm winds and partly overcast skies for a top-water presentation. This was all done before suppertime and they had the whole evening left. The end total was 37 Smallmouth Bass with 22 being Trophy fish from 18-20-inches. They said the fishing was just unreal making memories between brothers that will last forever, and said they will definitely back for more.

Long time guest Charlie McDermid from Bozeman, MT arrived with excitement and anticipation glad to be back fishing at Fireside Lodge. With him for the first half of Charlie’s stay was a good friend Don Kauffman also from Bozeman, and he is an astute Fly-Fisher who has never done lake Fly-Fishing. The second half his daughter and her husband Jennie and Criag Klann also from Bozeman, MT will be joining him. Charlie’s love of chasing Muskie is what brings him to Fireside Lodge, but for Charlie I believe the real reason is fishing in the North, as he has done since he was a youngster, is engrained in his soul. During Don’s first half with Charlie they chased Muskie without much success however caught Northern Pike in the process and fished for Smallmouth Bass for a day. Don never caught Smallmouth Bass Fly-Fishing so he accomplished his goal by catching several, and he also caught his first Northern Pike on a Fly Rod. Don left having a great time and really enjoyed his first take on Lake Fly-Fishing.  Charlie had Jennie and Craig chasing Muskie on their first day fishing without much success, besides the follows that Musky are well know for. 2nd day Charlie and Craig were out fishing by 5:30 AM to catch the pre-thunderstorm activity and hopefully catch the big fish moving, and they did catch several nice Northern Pike in 1.5 hours before the thunder and lightening started. The rest of the day and on their 3rd day they spent a lot of time covering some new water looking for Charlie’s BIG Muskie catching Northern Pike along the way. 4th day had them making plenty of contact with Muskie getting many follows but could not get a strike. That’s Muskie fishing!! 5th day was fishing their way up to Twin Falls catching some Northern Pike. They all enjoyed the falls and a beautiful day. 6th and final day was they grand slam catching one Northern Pike after another with seemingly non-stop action for several hours. This had them all leaving on a high note full of anticipation until the next time.

Darling Group, Bill Darling who was with us with his wife before, came with his son Mike, and two long time fishing buddies Ed Hammer and Bob Foreman all from Centerville, Maryland. DOA Bill and Bob caught some Smallmouth bass to get started. First day all caught fish while learning the lower half of Little Vermillion Lake and they were all impressed after receiving Audrey’s signature huge full rack of fall of the bone ribs at suppertime.

2nd day they did well catching Northern Pike, Smallmouth Bass, and Muskie with Bob catching a few of the largest Smallmouth of the group, Ed with the largest Northern Pike, and Mike, never having caught a Muskie before in his life caught two and lost another all on a lure he purchased from my tackle shop that morning. That’s a good day fishing for all and the chatter and excitement in the dinning room was obvious. Also, both Ed and Bob purchased the lure that Mike had such great success with for the Muskie. 3rd and final day, after talking with Mike, Bob, and Ed, they had caught a lot of Smallmouth Bass and Northern Pike using a variety of lures. All left having loads of fun making many memories among family and long time fishing buddies.
