Baby it’s cold outside!
Been a busy few months here at Five Lakes Lodge! All our summer cabins are closed up and the boats are put away! The docks are pulled and the plows are on the truck and 4 wheeler! We are ready for the winter... ugh! We had a great fall here though! The weather was great and the fishing and hunting [...]
It’s been far to long!
So it has been a few weeks. A lot has been happening around here! Things are starting to wind down... there is that crispness in the air and fog on the lake in the mornings! My favorite season is upon us! So last weekend we had two groups from camp and Ian and his partner, fish the Red Lake Fall [...]
Well it has been a hot couple weeks around Five Lakes Lodge! It seems that summer has finally arrived... only a couple months too late! But we will take it! Fishing slowed down this week. With the hot calm days our guests were eating but weren't boating anything too big. Lots of over 18's and up to 23", and the [...]
Oh what do we have here!?
So it looks like the Mayfly are on their way out and some cooler weather has moved in... So have our new groups! After a long day on the road and a storm moving in.. Our groups got into camp and were eager to get some dinner before the storm hit. Ian guided one of our groups to a spot [...]
Happy Birthday Jo!
Sorry it has been too long since my last post! Things slowed down for a couple weeks and Ian and I even managed to get away for a few days! .... But we are gearing up for a few more busy weeks here at Five Lakes Lodge! The weather has been very strange so far this summer. We have even [...]
The Mayflies are here! The Mayflies are here!
SO we had our first hatch last week, but it didn't seem to affect the fishing at all. We have had a few new groups in with some big families and they seem to have found the fishing pretty good. It took them a couple days to find their way around the lake, but seem to have figured things out [...]
Oh Rain Rain Go Away!
So I can definitely say that this has not been the best weather we have ever seen here at Five Lakes Lodge! We get a few nice days... but then it is rain rain and more rain! I think that a lot of you are seeing that wherever you are from! What a crappy start to the summer! But with [...]
It’s all about the fishing!
So I haven't really talked about the fishing here at Five Lakes Lodge yet on the blog. So I thought I would update you all on all the LARGE Northern being pulled in in the last few weeks! We have had a lot of over 40's being boated! Some of our groups are happy to say they have crossed off [...]
Look Who’s Here!!
Yuck! Yuck! Yuck! Yep! Camp is full of these army worms! Hopefully the worst is almost over! However our trees are pretty bare! These crazy worms come once every 7 - 10 years and totally wreak havoc on our trees! So those of you coming up in the next few weeks... Beware... it's not too green right now! These [...]
Rain Rain Go Away
So week 5 begins with some very wet guests. Seems that our "summer" may have come and gone already! Two weeks ago we had guys jumping off the dock and today with the wind and rain... A hot shower is probably all the guests are thinking about when they come in off the lake. Looks like the weather is supposed [...]
Up and Running!!
So excited to let you all know the we have finally got the new site up and that you will be able to follow us now with the blog and updates in our "Brags"! We have been very excited about this! It has been a very busy few weeks here. We are in full swing now! Camp is full and [...]
Last fish of the season
So Ian packed us all up and got us out to one of the winter accessible lakes. What a great day. Quintin pulled in his fair share of walleye and I have to say… After stealing Ian’s hole… I out fished him by a mile!! LOL
Spring Bear Hunt
We found an interesting article in the lasted addition of Ontario Out of Doors magazine. It was saying how the government may reintroduce the spring bear hunt. This was very exciting for us as we are really trying to get the bear hunting going here at camp… however… Ian just received an email from NOTO saying that it is now [...]
So yes! It is only 3 weeks away from opener! Yes! We still have snow and ice! However…. It is melting fast!! Ian was out on the lake in front of the lodge yesterday and drilled a couple of holes… 23 inches was the most ice… but there was 3 inches of slush ice….And lots of water on top… We [...]
We are always teasing our guests in the winter months! So here we are (or Ian) enjoying some fresh walleye! Mmmmmm! Yummy! Don’t worry… it won’t be long until you are here shore lunching it up!
Can’t wait for another lodge summer
It has been a very LONG winter and we are so looking forward to spring and seeing everyone again! We are starting our cleanup of all the winter toys and are going to get ready to start landscaping…. As soon as the snow is gone…. We …well.. Ian.. will be shingling a roof or two and we want to redesign [...]
