Quetico or other Canadian Park 2008

Merry Christmas to all! May you all be blessed with good health and many great fish stories to pass on to the young'uns!

I've been base camping BWCA now for several years and feel that my crew is ready for a more remote fishing/canoeing trip this year.

We (2-4) are typically out for 10 days- canoeing in 2 days and base camping for day trips. We're into the fishing as opposed to long distance braggin' rights.

Any tips would be much appreciated.

Along those same lines- has anyone just headed up north into Canada and camp/fished their way through or is that something that's frowned upon?

Thanks!

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.

      Thanks Cliff! I've been very closely monitoring Pike Bay the last few weeks I'm not far from you as the crow flies right on the bay. Still sitting at 4-5 inches of ALL refroze slush. No good ice. It's flooding over pretty good with 1-3 inches water with the couple inches snow still on top. Hopefully the cold penetrates that snow and gets things going so I can run the sled right up the bay to McKinley by next weekend.

      The ice on the small pond on the west side of the road heading into SJU was able to hold my weight (which is substantial, alas).  I didn't have a chisel, and I wasn't about to go any further out.  Still, very good sign.  I'm sure there'll be guys out by the end of the weekend, if not sooner.
