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! Posted by Picasa

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.
