Another great day of fishing for Craig Pickering of Barrie, Ontario. This beautiful golden Walleye was the prize catch of Craig's holiday! After a photo session and a kiss, this prime breeder was released back into the waters of Little Marten Lake. Looking on is Craig's nephew Jared Edwards, as Craig proudly holds his catch. It's through conservation-minded anglers like Craig that the fisheries are able to be sustained to keep the waters populated for the sport fishing enthusiast. Thanks Craig for sharing this with us!

Never a dull moment! Here granddaughter Rachel puts the finishing touches on the new picnic tables. Grampa Albert and Rachel spent 2 days making and painting about 14 of these tables to place around the camp. With the fantastic summer weather we have had, taking meals 'al fresco' has been a great pleasure for our guests.

Well what a day it was for Lance Default and his Dad, Tracy from Angus, Ontario. This stringer of Walleye and Smallies is proudly displayed and it wasn't long before these tasty fish were on the table! Lance's service dog, Otter, is always by his side, and the fishing trip was no exception. Way to go Lance and Tracy! Fish on!!

WOW ! May 24th weekend proved to be very successful for Tom Milne (L) and Michael February. Here they proudly display their catch of a fiesty Northern Pike and a beautiful Lake Trout.

Recently we have mushers from Oxford Station staying at the camp and running their sled dog teams on trails throughout the Nipissing Crown Game Preserve. Marilyn and Gary Holmes enjoy their annual trek to Beaverland. Pictured here is a team running by Wicksteed Creek on their way to the dam. The weather was great with bright sunny days and crisp nights.

The Pine Grosbeaks have been regular visitors at the feeder this winter. WE enjoy their beautiful dusty rose coloring and their gentle songs. We also have lots of Chickadees, Woodpeckers who love peanut butter, Redpolls, Blue Jays, Gray Jays and Pileated Woodpeckers in the cedar trees. IT won't be long before the birds of Spring will be arriving!

Happy Valentine's Day ! We are in the midst of a winter storm today. Snow is blowing in from the east and we are inside nice and cozy. Some ice fishermen are braving the elements and have ventured out to spend the day in the ice hut. -19C this morning, but heading to +4C in the afternoon. Not enough to melt any of our ice though! Think Spring!!
