End of May update!

I know many of you know situation with my Parents health problems and I thought I would just clear the air and fill you in. My Mother passed away last Mon. and Gale and I and my two daughters are in Winnipeg taking care of the situation. If we are a bit late at answering our e-mails we do apologize but we will be back at the Lodge tomorrow, Sun. and carry on with the very good start we had in the last two weeks with respect to the fishing. My Father is not doing very well and we hope for the best for him. Enough about my problems, but many of you have asked about them and I thought I would just be open about it.
We had a great opening week and the fishing just carried on fantastically this past week with many beauties being caught and released. The weather has not been the most favorable but it looks like we may be in for a bit of a warming trend (not fast but warmer and sunny).
We will be posting all the pictures on our 2009 picture page as soon as we catch up with things after our arrival back at the Lodge. Gale and I look forward seeing you all this summer and can't wait to get back in the routine..
Take Care and see you soon!! Bob

Ice Out May 11th, 2009

Weather conditions were just right yesterday, and the ice cleared off of Perrault Lake by evening. Finally!! Cooler, damp weather moving back in for the next few days, and even a forecast for some of the white stuff Wed night to Thursday. Spring is sure having a hard time warming up this year!

Ice Situation!

Just going out the door but thought I should bring you up to speed on the ice!! It went out in the bay 2 days ago and there is quite a bit on the main lake but won't be a problem by the end of the week. The fishing should be awsome! Look forward to seeing everyone this coming weekend. BOB

Morning Mist on Perrault Lake

Just thought I'd share a couple of pictures we took this morning. There was a thick fog around the lake this morning, and just as it was lifting there a beautiful defined fog line on the lake. While down at the dock taking the pictures, we noticed our loons were back, and were swimming in the bay in front of the fish house.

We have been getting lots of phone calls and e-mails from everyone checking on the ice. Glad to hear that you're all anxious for opener. We sure are! Bob was even out yesterday with a blow torch trying to melt some ice & snow covering one of our frozen waterlines - Now that's what I call helping out mother nature! (should have gotten a picture of that site). Lots of wind yesterday - the bay in front of camp may clear out soon.
Keep that sunshine coming!

May 5th. ice update!!!!!

Well: This morning we are supposed to get a small amount of rain that will help the ice out situation! The temps. have been around the mid to upper 50's the last few days and the ice in the bay in front of the Lodge is looking real black. After watching the spring thaw on Perrault for the better part of thirty years we always notice that it is one of the last lakes to be completely free of ice. The bay out front will probably be clear in the next week or so and the main part will not be to far behind it. Gale will be attaching a couple of pictures to this Blog later today so if there are no images check back in a couple of hours. All of our projects are going according to plan and the new staff is going to start the Learning Curve this week. Will Blog again in a week or so with current conditions and feel free to comment to me on this Blog as we do enjoy the comments. Stay warm and remember- less than two weeks to opener!!!
