Happy New Year, Show Season Begins in Detroit Jan 9th, and a Moose Video!

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.

Fall is here, 2020 Early Rates, Young Moose Swimming

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:

Travel Update for Highway 17 Stops — and some Moose, Bear, Loon Calls and a Fly-In Landing!

See videos, photos and audio below, but first…

New Travel Info for returning and new guests:

Coming up Highway 17 in Ontario from the border, the Agawa Indian Crafts store and gas station is closed indefinitely. This had been a useful stop for restrooms and gas, as it was a mid-point.

For fuel coming North if you don’t stop in Sault Ste Marie, about 42 miles North (just before Agawa Indian Crafts) is The Voyageurs’ Lodge & Cookhouse, with a general store and gas station open until 8:00 pm.  The next gas stations are not for 100 miles until you reach Wawa (141 miles from Sault Ste Marie), with one Esso station along Highway 17 and a few more if you take the turn-off and head into Wawa. The Wawa stations all close at 9:00 pm.

For a midway rest stop with clean bathroom, Keurig coffee for purchase, and a very scenic short walk along the shore of Lake Superior — stop at Agawa Bay Visitor Center & Campground (at the 1105 kilometer marker).  Located pretty soon after you see the blue sign when entering Lake Superior Provincial Park, it’s 85 miles North of Sault Ste Marie.  When driving South, it’s 56 miles South of Wawa, just beyond the first bridge with the metal overhead structure.  Visitor Center is now open 9am – 8pm. Before Canada Day (July 1st, unless it falls on a Sunday) on weekdays the Visitor Center is only open until 5pm.)
