Report


So, started my daughters when they were 10 so this year was my sons first trip in. I went back to a favorite and relatively easy trip. Water taxi through Moose and Newfoundland, paddle through Splash and Ensign, portage into Vera and set up camp. Usually not a bad paddle or trip. The winds were up and right at us through Ensign, took double the time to get through the lake, a tough battle the whole way, and not a fish to be had the entire way. Weather was great the whole trip, probably too hot. Bugs were out early and fish I think down a little early as well. We worked Vera hard and some neighboring lakes. Enjoyed each and everyday and has a blast. My son discovered he hates bugs, well more specifically mosquitos. Your in the bush, learn to live with them. Fishing was slow on Vera, we picked up a few and had better luck on a few other lakes. Have already planned and booked this years trip, Birch, Carp, Knife, Vera. Next year we will hit the east side out of Grande Marais. We love it and will be back each year.
