The Peper's

This was our first time fishing in Canada, and what a spectacular time it was!

We flew in to unseasonably cold weather.  The first day was mix of snow and rain.  After that, however, the weather warmed, and we had 5 straight days of sunshine.

The fishing was quite good, but made a bit trickier by the high water.  We caught an abundance of Northern Pikes, enough walley for a few fish fries, and even a Smallmouth Bass.

Above all, however, we were amazed and impressed by the hospitality and accommodation of our hosts. 

The cabin was immaculate, and had far more than we ever anticipated.  We could not have been more pleased with our stay!

We look forward to being back next year!

The Ibey's

Sunday woke up in Chapleau to snow!! Delayed our flight, thought maybe it wasn't going to happen.  Got the call from Rene....small window available...hurry to meet the plane. The Plane!!!!

The vintage! the reliability! the view! Wow!!! 

Weather wasn't great but we went fishing anyway but caught nothing worth keeping. 

Monday we went fishing in the morning...it was +3...a little chilly but we were dressed for it.  Caught 1 pike. 

Wednesday we finally caught enough perch for a meal. 

Friday looks like the weather might clear enough for us to go through the Portage. 

Thursday rained enough to keep us inside all day. 

Friday we did the Portage.  The walk was hard for my husband (70).  He has bad hips but though the fishing would be worth it.  Finally made it.....We trolled along the left shore.  We sat behind the island for 2 hours.  We trolled up to the mouth of the river and sat for 2 hours...Nothing...Changed lures, changed bait...all of a sudden..15 minutes we pulled 5 walleyes and then nothing!! LOL...Really.. if we didn't have bad luck we would have no luck at all! My husband decided 5 fish wasn't worth the pain of walking back in again. 

We spent Saturday around the camp. The weather was terrible, cold and rainy every day.  It obviously affected the fish bitting. 

The ultimate experience of the camp, the flight, our hosts Claire &  Rene were amazing!  We loved the peace, the comfort, the hospitality.  We will be back! Just earlier in the season.  We left very pleased with our vacation. 

Thank you Claire & Rene.  We look forward to our next visit.

Thanks for an awesome time/week! An awesome place to come & come again! We absolutely loved it. 

The plane ride in & out, the cabin and most of all the fishing.  Caught a few fish everyday but really got into the walleye at the Portage.  The Portage is a must.  Great walking the trail and truely the best fishing day ever.  We proudly caught 175 walleyes up there on Thursday. 

It was great and we will most definitely will be back ASAP!

Sad to see the end come to a very relaxing week.

Many thanks to Claire and Rene for patiently providing answers to our many questions before arriving and providing a well stocked facility when we arrived.

Spaghetti sauce was a special treat!

Caught a ton of fish at all times of the day, kind of a can't miss! 

Here with my brothers, we all plan on returning!

20th Wedding Anniversary

The place is beautiful, all the comforts of home. 

We arrived at the end of the heat wave, fishing was awesome, the company was great, the camp is awesome. 

The wildlife is great to see.  Woke up to loons talking to us every morning.  Seen the bald eagle a few times, a family of otters, some grey jays and a family of loons. 

Caught the biggest fish and bent the hook! Thank God my hubby doesn't mind taking the fish off and baiting my line with a leech sometimes.

Our 20th Wedding Anniversary being celebrated in this beautiful, serene and quiet place was the greatest!  Out fishing one last time, a couple bites and landed a couple small pikes. Admired the area for the last time before we head home. 

Thank you Claire & Rene - you are perfect hosts and the place is the best!

We felt like VIP's from the word "Go"!

Claire and Rene, thank you for being the absolute best when it comes to hosting! We've never encountered such care and service; from meeting us at the plane and your sweetness and thoughtfullness with our boys. 

Thank you for providing the means to an extra special and certainly memorable vacation for our family!  Y'all have thought of every possible need and provided everything.  We felt so cared for and thought of.

Thank you for the delicious wine and yummy spaghetti sauce; we enjoyed both the first night.

Your cabin is absolutely beautiful and so combortable.  We can't wait to share with our friends and to come back as our boys grow.

Thank you for being the ultimate host and hostess.

Martin's Bachelor Fishing Trip!

Pat, Robin, Rick, Eric, Serge, Pascal, Martin & Marc

What a day...around 20 fish in the afternoon. Very sunny and sun burned.  Amazing so far.

Day 1

In the evening, Martin caught some fish with his Dora Fishing Rod...LOL...Had a blast.  Caught some more fish.  Back to camp had awesome fish fry and good laughs.  Amazing place. Drank 10 cases of beer....LOL...Fun Time

Day 2

Everyone was hungover.  Great night last night.  After a mega breakfast, 8 of us went fishing - 9:30 until 4:00pm.  Caught so much fish in the afternoon.  Released a 26" walleye.  Everyone caught so many walleyes except on guy who had no fishing skills so far (P.P.).  Got more beer flown in...second round.  Caught lots of fish. Can't keep count.

Thanks to Claire & Rene for the great stay.  We had a blast here with the boys.

Here we are again at Henderson's Outposts, which is like no other.  Hoping the weather would be better, but guess what --NOT.  Rained everyday but the day we got here and the last day.  Dispite the low pressure & fishing in the rain we ate fish everyday.  Mark's only complaint was he fished 8hrs without a fish.  Left 1 walleye in waters by dock on stringer to go downriver and fish and came back to empty stringer, only to see 3 otters swimming away licking their chops thanking us. 

Thank you Claire & Rene once again for your hospitality. We love you! 

P.S. we drank 2 bottles of Apothic Wine tonigh and I'm BUZZED! Thanks

Day 1

Richard Landry and Mike Murphy settled in.  Went did evening fishing. Caught 8 walleyes.  Didn't keep any. Very beautiful day.  The flight was great.

Day 2

Very relaxing...Peace and quiet.  Can't ask for better.  Caught a bunch of fish.  Released them all.

Day 3

More of the same. This is a great place.

Day 4

Again, more of the same.  It is totally great out here.

Day 5

Went fishing again.  The fishing is great.  Came back early. 

Rene & Claire dropped in for a visit.  Nice of them to check up on us and bring in some supplies.  Very greatful for them to do that.  Filled ourselves with good spaghetti supper.

Day 6

Got caught in the rain but that's ok.  Only day of rain.  Can't ask for better.  Caught a few walleyes and released them.  We have our limits already.

Day 7

Got up early..had breakfast then got some packing done.  Split wood, clean up outside and filled up water tanks.  Got feeling pretty good to drown our sorrows cause we had to leave in the morning.  Sad to leave!

Last day is a very sad one.  Breakfast then pack up.  Did our chores.  Swept and wash floor. Very sad that we have to leave but I will tell you this is a very excellent ouptost.  I give it a 6 star and the hosts are the best you can ask for.  Great job.  We will see you's again.  Thank you very much!

Flew into Henderson's, wonderful camp.  Everything you need.  Poured rain, went out fishing, caught dinner, bugs bad.  Next day, couldn't get out till 1:30 because of the pouring rain.  Still caught dinner in the rain.  Tuesday, went to lower rapids, got caught in the pouring rain but still caught dinner.  Good thing this camp is so cozy as we spent so much tine drying out. "HEX" May Fly hatch just started. Wednesday, sunshine and good weather.  Pike were on the bite.  Thursday, went to where the rivers meet again, did better, limited walleye.  Very windy and more rain.  "Flight Check" and was gifted with some Live BAIT.  HEX hatch!  Friday, Live BAIT worked very well and got robbed often. Saturday, fished the bay at lower end to find new spots.  Ended up raining once again.  Ate fish every day.  Great camp, next time we hope we pick a better choice for the week.  P.S. The bugs liked the rain. 

Thank you for all Claire & Rene!

Day 1

15 walleyes, 3 pikes

Day 2

25 walleyes, 4 pikes, 1 bottle of Vodka, 4 steaks. Great day

Day 3

Fish fry.  Stopped counting at 40 walleyes.  Kept 6, threw the rest back.  Rained all morning.  Didn't even start to fish till 3pm.

P.S.  The beds are mint.

Day 4

Another 40 walleyes, 4 pikes and 1 white fish.  A couple of cases of beer and more Vodka.

Had a fantastic stay at Henderson's Outposts camp. You could not ask for better hosts than Claire & Rene.  They have put some great effort in establishing such a nice outpost with more then comfortable accomodations.  The extra little touchs around the camp make you certain that you will return again.  I know we certainly will.

We had a lovely 4 days of relaxing, peaceful and good fishing.  We ate fish every night, plus leaving with our limit of walleyes.  Oh...can't forget the extra pumping the new hand pump for fresh water. 

Claire & Rene....you's have a beautiful camp that you can runaway from the fuss & buss of city life.  We are so greatful for giving us the opportunity to have Mike's dream holiday of a fly-in fishing trip become a reality with me.

Thanks Claire & Rene

Luv you!
