May 2010

For the 21st time in the last 16 years the "Reel Men" took a group of rugged outdoorsmen up to the wilds of northern Canada to do battle with big toothy northern pike and feisty walleye.  This year the trip was organized again by our outfitter and friend Glenn Dunning of "Tundratours" in Vermont.  Jean, Lac Berthelot's great bush pilot flew us in to Otter Lake in northern Quebec and we had a great week.  The weather was fantastic, the fishing excellent, & the meals delicious - especially the walleye fillets.  This year's group caught well over 700 fish during the week we were there.  Check out the pictures below!

yet to see on any of our trips - a 20 lb. monster!!

     Dick & Jamie hoist up their 13 lb. 2 oz. tournament bag.  Unfortunately they

      tied Jim and Doug's total weight exactly and since Jim and Doug had the

          big  walleye of the day, they were declared the tournament winners!

                   Jim and Doug won the first Otter Lake "Smokey Bear Classic"

                               walleye tournament with this great stringer of fish!

                            We're all looking forward to next year's trip already. 

                                       With sunsets like this who wouldn't??
