For discussion purposes and planning only. Here is how I assign.
1) Veterans get first choice.
2) Keep groups together.
3) Freshest Bear Lakers assigned to 8.
Global climate change is altering the thermal structure and productivity of lakes recovering from acid rain, according to researchers studying lakes in the southern boreal forest of Ontario, Canada. Impacted by climate change and additional stressors, such as calcium depletion and invasive species, the lakes may not all return to their original biological condition, says Bill Keller, a limnologist with the Ontario Ministry of the Environment.
Bear Lake Fishermen & Friends
My fishing catalogs are filling the mailbox, so it must be time to start organizing our next adventure. I hope to have our commitments by the end of March; however, the first eighteen will have their spots guaranteed. Our group kept the same rate by promising Bill to bring eighteen fishermen. We will be able to offer everyone their own bedroom by taking advantage of the cottage on Cat Island . The cottage can comfortably sleep three in their own bedroom. Bob Taylor would probably appreciate the accommodations as well as Matt's company. This might also be a good location for Garland to hang out. This group will have lots of fun organizing the crossings at Lower Cranberry, High Lake , and Van Winkle before separating to fish the other lakes.
Hopefully this year we will once again enjoy the company of Jack Harding, Bob Taylor, Mark Kochis, and John Sealy, who were not able to make the trip in 04. We also hope Dave Morrison's sons will be able to join us. The group will meet at Dorothy's home and head North on Friday, July 22 nd and pick Mike up in Gaylord prior to making our traditional stop at the Antlers. We will be able to make arrangements for anyone who wants to be in the camp for part of the week.
I think Jack Harding should handle logistics for the keg and once again supervise the euchre tournament. Of course it will be Vaughn's job to test the keg and manage the distribution. Jim Perrine should be aware that I am considering buying a very unique but worthless piece of fishing equipment just to make certain I have something not in his tackle box. I also purchased a new net for Scott because he wore his out netting my fish. I think Mike will spend a little more time on the other end of Round Otter because the biggest large mouth and pike were caught within ten yards of each other.
I will be collecting a two hundred dollar deposit for the trip, if you need to cancel this would be refundable provided we have our maximum number of fishermen. Send me an email or simply put your check in the mail. This has and continues to be a great trip with some truly terrific companions; I am looking forward to our next adventure.
Wishing you tight lines and firm hook ups,
These lures should wet your appetite; if not, buy some more jig heads.
