get ready for spring salmon!

Spring is here! All the ice shacks have been hauled off of the lake and are all put away until next year. It was a great year of ice fishing on Grand Lake by all accounts.The only down side was the cancellation of the tournament due to a lack of ice.This move was a bit premature,but better safe than sorry. We are now busy getting our boats and motors ready for the opener on April 15 and we are anticipating some fantastic fishing. There were about 6600 more fish in the system than the previous year and I can personnally attest to the fact there was a large amount of salmon in the SW Miramichi last fall. I hooked 12 and landed 10 the first day last year and I expect to do at least that well this year! We will be guiding from the 16th of April on ,so all of you fishermen had better get ready to hit the water,because you don't want to miss what will be the best season in recent memory! I'll see you there!

Fishing Burbot on Grand Lake

Now that's what we're talkin' about! Kenny with his nine lb. Burbot caught at Grand Lake off of Cox's Point. This fish was about thirty-two ins. long and Ken had his hands full getting him up the eight in. hole! Although this fish represents the upper limit in size for this species in Grand Lake,there are plenty of burbot in the three to five lb. range to be had.So get out there during those boring winter days and experience some of the great fishing to be had at Grand Lake

ice fishing on Grand Lake

Winter is nearing it 's end ,but not before the ice fishermen on Grand Lake have a chance to catch some more burbot and white fish. This has been a very good year for both of these species this year. Some white fish in the five lb. catagory have been caught, as well as some nice burbot up to ten lbs. The smelts have been a little scarce,but the one,s that have been caught have been pretty good size,right up to 12 ins. long. Some say the best fishing is yet to come,so get out there on Grand Lake and havre some fun!!

GOODBYE SUMMER......HELLO FALL!
