So...who's going where this year and when?

01-22-2008, 01:24 PM
Doing my usual two trips.
1. June 28-July 4 This is the family trip to Lac Seul. Dad, uncles, cousins, Gramps, and even my father-in-law...This will be the 36th annual! I mostly fish for northerns and hope for a musky. The rest of the group fishes mostly walleye.

2. Middle of August, 3rd annual "Trip of a Lifetime" (at least that's what I keep telling my wife). My buddy and I are camping and fishing a few small "back" lakes for muskies. We usually do very well catching a lot of fish, but no size to them. Cliff Lake area.

My usual 2 week trip to Sabaskong June 28th to July 14th. We use to split 2 weeks up,but with the price of gas,do 2 weeks in one shot now. Will fish a bit in Iowa and Missouri before and after Canada. However, I have been given the responsibility to teach 3 grand kids how to fish this Summer,so it's going to be pan fishing mostly in Iowa.

I will be heading out with a great guide here on Lake St.Clair for some musky action http://www.can-amcharters.com/

Hitting the muskies Canada Can-Am the weekend of June 20th-22nd tis will be my third time out for this event it has always been a blast and keeps getting better

I will also be taking the family out for the Muskies Canada family weekend where the weekend is dedicated to the family its the 25th year this year for the event and will be great my kids love this weekend.

I will also be heading up to the west arm of nippising and the french river in Sept I know there are alot of other trips in between that will just pop us.

Now my only problem is I have these plans but the boat is in the shop with a blown motor I just hope I dont get raked over the coals for her repair.

4 weeks to go,and I'm already getting antsy. This is my 45th year Anniversary of fishing Sabaskong. It's like going home. My grandson was the 4th generation of catching their first Musky at Sabaskong last year. Makes it hard to go anywhere else with that kind of tradition,and memories.
