My first Arctic Grayling
Dead Lake, Saskatchewan
September 2010 – Back For a bit more:
Went back to Reindeer Lake last weekend to see nephew, caught a big water sow with the Python Darter from Thundermist. Thanks Ivo…
Back from Otter Lake and Reindeer Lake after a week of great fishing…
My first 40″ plus pike…
Reindeer Lake was a lot of fun, with Leon Bird as our guide out of Nordic Lodge. He knows where all the big fish are…
Dean Got the biggest one…
We couldn’t have done it without our guide Leon Bird…
He can do it all, find the fish, net the fish, clear the snags, and clean the fish.
Just back from our 2009 trip. We spent 4 days at Otter Lake and 3 days on a fly-in to Daly Lake.
Saturday 30 May 2009
Caught this pike on my 5th cast of the season with the Banjo 006 Minnow which I tested for the first time this year with mixed results. Estimated 10 pounds or so, didn’t bother with the scale, just tossed him back.
Then we went and found some walleyes and a sauger:

One night the lake is like glass
The next morning it snows
But we went fishing anyway
Nephew Vinnie on his exploratory trip to Southend:
First night out – and I am a little out of practice for this big fellow…
He took the hook deep but we got him fixed up and out to fight another day.

Just back from fishing for the week, and a great week it was. We had a shorter trip this year but had a good day on our flyout yesterday. Here is the money shot:
My biggest catch of the trip, now safely on file in my freezer. (15lb Lake Trout)
Our ride for the day was this little number:
Enough room for our gear and room to seat three, sort of. A twenty five minute ride to go forty miles to a place called Blair Lake. We were told that we will be the only people to fish that lake this year. Nothing but hard fighting lake trout. Most of them small but with major attitude.
After spending 9 hours catching somewhere around 100 fish we brought back our limit and left the rest to fight another day. So here is the brother, the nephew, and myself with the results.
Highlights From The Rest Of The Week:
Fishing to the bitter end of the day. The boat was supposed to be back at 9 pm. We are a little late to say the least.
A Northern Sunset
We did some casting for Walleye at the bottom of these falls and caught a few.
