We know you all miss Wabatongushi Lake, so we’re bringing it to you at home with a webcam!
We’re sending out a song and a story this weekend!
Some of you might remember John Legg, who worked with us back in 2012. John is from London (England, not Ontario!) originally and now lives in Toronto. He’s an amazing guitarist and would often entertain us on Loch Island. His chill vibe was contagious and we still miss him playing guitar on the deck at dinner time. Now John is teaching guitar in Toronto. He sent us a little sample with well wishes during these odd times. Enjoy! (After the video, continue with reading the story below…)
Hard to believe, but 2020 is here… Happy New Year to you all! Our spring opening is just around the corner, and the Sport Show Season is upon us starting next week. We look forward to seeing many of you this winter. Starting this Thursday, January 9th, we’ll be at our first show in Novi, MI! The Ultimate Fishing Show Detroit at the Suburban Showcase Collection in Novi and runs through the weekend. If you’re in the area, stop by and say hello! We’ll be in booth 1004. This is the grand daddy of fishing shows in the Detroit area. A huge facility, the Suburban Showcase Collection is jammed packed with all kinds of fishing gear. If you are anywhere near Detroit (Novi) it’s the fishing show to go to.
— Show runs January 9th – 12th and their website has more details: Ultimate Fishing Show Detroit
The following week, January 16th – 18th, we’ll be at the Northeast Ohio Sportsman Show in Mt Hope Ohio. For those of you who have never been to that show, it is way out in the country, quite different from the larger shows we do. Centered right in the heart of Amish country, the Mt Hope area (Holmes County) is a great spot to visit for one of a kind hand made products and home cooked Amish meals. The show itself is smaller, but has a good selection of outdoor products.

Sandy Bay News
News: 2020 Early Rates Announced (see below) — The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting colder. The lake is deserted with the exception of a few diehard fishermen staying at Camp Lochalsh. Much of the staff has gone south, back to school or family, and we are down to a skeleton crew at Camp Lochalsh. Our days are spent closing up around the lake and doing maintenance. Above photo is from a recent Shore Lunch in Kathleen Bay!
– While traveling up the lake yesterday from Camp Lochalsh to the Isle of Jordan, we all encountered a young bull moose swimming across the middle of the lake. Ryan got some good video of him swimming and then later going onshore:
