Sounds like a good time. That 37 1/2 inch pike must have been aweful skinny, that usually is closer to 17 lbs. I fished a lake called little Brightsand, but that was just north of Lynn Lake Manitoba. Were you in Ontario yet? Thanks for your report.

Yes we were still in Ontario. About 3 1/2 hours west of Thunder Bay. And yes it was kinda thin

Thanks for the report and pictures. Glad you finally got to go on a trip and had a good time.

I like hearing reports of different places. Ontario has done a good job of providing a lot of opportunities. Thanks again.

Sounds like a fun trip. My dad caught a 38" pike on our trip a couple weeks ago but we don't haul a scale with us. Guessing it was a couple pounds more since it had some girth compared to the one in your pics. Nicely done!

Nice report and some nice fish! I would never have guessed they could "spot" the radiation from an old compass like that! Must have some pretty sensitive equipment to notice it.

Thanks for the report Bob. Looks like a nice area. Your camp site looked quite comfy once you cleaned it up.

Yeah bapabear it was a shock to us also but it is good to know that we have that kind of technology to pick something up that small.

Yeah Andy it was a pretty nice site. It was right by the rapids, it was really relaxing to hear the river at bed time.
