The Best Boy In New Brunswick!

We're having a great time down East in Chipman,New Brunswick so far this summer,and this past week-end was no exception! I'm very pleased to announce that Tyler Northrup,my grand-son and myself,Dale Bauer,won the 16th Annual Chipman fish and game Fishing Derby this past Saturday.This year I mentored Ty and a friend from Doaktown named Ameliea Vienneau,and we were lucky enough to win the catagory for most weight registered per team. There were some great prizes for the kids and adults alike.And don't forget the free hot-dogs and pop and chips! It was a beautiful day for the tournament and a good time was had by all!The Chipman Fish and Game is to be commended for their hard work and dedication to promoting the sporting life to the younger generation. We are done bear hunting and we were very suprised at the number of large boars that were hitting our baits.Kenney took a young bear that was causing some walkers and joggers some distress out of circulation,but other than that,we will be keeping tabs on some really nice one's for future hunts. The run of sea-run brook trout up the Cains River this year was nothing short of phenomonal! Many long-time fishermen like John S.,who took a 19 incher that weighed 4.25 lbs. and Leonard P.who took several over 16in. have all said the fishing is the best they have ever seen! The Cains River is living proof that conservation does indeed work! The bright salmon are just starting and the pickerel fishing is just starting to heat up,so get up off your duff and get out there in the Great Outdoors for some fun in the sun!
