 Fireside Fishing Flash 2


Stephen Thomas with son Gage returned for their 2nd time and brought for the 1st time Dave . DOA and in just 6 hours of fishing these three caught well over 100 Smallmouth Bass having 5 triples and over 10 doubles, and all the Smallmouth were 17 to 20 inches. Amazing fishing like Thomas and Gage had in 2019 but for Dave it was his best ever fishing for Smallmouth Bass. First full day they caught 71 before supper and were off the water for over two hours in the afternoon because of T-Storms. This Magnificent Smallmouth fishing just continued having a day they did not think possible catching 200 Smallmouth Bass before having supper in the Dinning Room. They knew the count was accurate as Dave was using a clicker counter. They all enjoyed a great meal of minestrone Soup, barbecue ribs, mashed potatoes, carrots with chocolate cake and ice cream, had good conversations in the lodge and retired to their cabin for the evening after a very satisfying day. This three generations trio continued to have fabulous Smallmouth fishing catching a total of 827 in the 6 days of fishing, not even counting the countless Northern Pike catches and bite offs and several Muskie they caught while focused on Smallmouth fishing. Upon departing Stephen secured his reservation for the same dates in 2023.



Jerry Amer, Bill Calhoon from Columbus, OH returning for their 19th year along with good friends Glenn Babka and Rob  from
As in the past they had another unreal fishing trip actually wearing themselves out catching fish they were a little slow in getting on the water their last day which is not normal. They caught countless Smallmouth Bass and Northern Pike and some great Muskie catches. As for Smallmouth they caught      trophy fish between 18-20-inches and Northern Pike up in the upper 30-inch range. As for Muskie Bill caught a very large 42.5-inch Tiger Muskie and in one day Jerry and Glenn caught 9 Muskie Glenn catching his largest ever measuring 43.5 inches while Bill and Rob caught 3 Muskie and Rob caught his largest ever at 42 inches. What a great Muskie Fishing day. The rest of their trip just got better and better catching countless Smallmouth Bass and Northern Pike and Jerry sent me a summary (below) of only their Trophy Smallmouth Bass each person caught, only the largest Northern Pike of each, and the total number of Muskie each landed and the approximate total of fish caught in 5 days. Before departure Jerry & Bill, as always, left their tackle for next years trip.

Jim Pim, brother Richard with son Doug and grandson Tyler, and good friends Steve and Nick from Shell Knob and Carthage, Mo and Frisco, TX. This is a group of good fishermen and as always caught large numbers of Smallmouth Bass and Northern Pike during their 4 days, with all catching 20 to 40 fish per day each along with many Trophy award Smallmouth Bass between 18-20 inches. They also caught some Muskie and Steve had a special experience doing so. As Steve was attempting to catch a Smallmouth he had sighted a Northern Pike came in a chase it off and in a blink of an eye a Muskie chased off the Pike before it hit Steve bait however he did end up hooking and catching the Muskie. 3rd day all did great with numbers and size on Smallmouth with Richard and Nick knocking it out of the park, Richard catching over 90 and Nick with at least 50 and all 90% were 17 to 19-inches. Last day they took their traditional group picture on the dock and all went home having another fabulous experience at their special fishing destination in Canada.

The Apt Brothers Doug and Chris from Crete, IL returned for their 3rd time. First day they did great catching Many large Smallmouth Bass each landing several trophy fish between 18-19.5 inches. Second day they had a good day fishing for Muskie making contact with fish and landing a few nice Muskie. 3rd day they also caught some great Smallmouth on day two but also contacted a good number of Muskie. They ended their four days of fishing with a terrific Smallmouth Bass day catching many BIG fish and lots of Pike. In a follow up email quoted from Chris when sending us a few pictures he said, “Thank you for a wonderful time last week Doug and I had a great time. I have attached the pictures that Alan wanted of the fish.”

Best of Friends Dan Skolza, Sugar Grove, IL and Don Landbo, S Elgin, IL returned for their 19th year and it was a phenomenal one not only in their record breaking fishing / catching but in them being able to socialize with long time Fireside Lodge friends they developed over the last 19 years after a two year pause. Don emailed me his and Dans total catches which you can view below  along with some great pictures.



Quoted from Dons Email:
Thanks so much for a great trip. I won't get too detailed on where we were and such each day.  Overall totals were:
3 muskie to 32"
61 smallmouth-6 master up to 19.5"
321 pike

4 muskie to 32"
71 smallmouth-5 master to 19"
420 pike

Grand total of 880. Mind blowing. 

Pleasure talking with you both in the evening.

Father & Son Paul and Tony Capecchi From Inver Grove Hgts and Woodbury, MN consecutive year guests since Tony was 17 years old now 39 returned for the 5th year with Tony's wife Jody and 7 year old Joe. Paul wrote me a very nice email, along with photos, describing their total family experience at Fireside so what better way to hear about this for our Fishing Report readers that straight from Paul so here is his exact letter to us:



Hello Audrey and Alan. 

Thanks again for making our Fireside vacation so wonderful.

Below is my usual summary of our time at Fireside.

Tony, Jodie, Joe (age 7) and Paul Capecchi always love their time at Fireside Lodge,  and with the Canadian border being closed for 2 years, they were especially happy to be back again this year.  Paul was more anxious than usual due to the flooding around International Falls and with the new Covid computer application required at the border.  But we made it through with no problems.  As we approached Fireside we had a fun nature experience as a black bear greeted us in middle of the road.  We stopped the car and the bear reared up on his back two legs and put his nose, mouth and front feet on each of the windows as it slowly walked around the car.  That was a really unique experience.    Upon arrival at the Lodge,  it was great to see Audrey and Alan in person.  We quickly moved into cabin 1 down by the lake and enjoyed it all week.  After a typically delicious dinner we went out fishing on the main lake catching a good number of bass, including a 18 inch master angler Smallmouth by Joe.   

Our 1st full day we all headed out to Muskie Lake and had fun with everyone catching many, many Northern Pike. 

On day 2,  Tony and Paul went to Closs Lake and had a great time on one of their favourite familiar lakes.  Tony caught 2 nice Muskie and 2 nice Pike.  Paul also caught 2 Muskie and a 19.5 inch Smallmouth Bass.  We had a great time on Closs while Jodie and Joe enjoyed their time in the cabin and lodge. 

The rest of the week we all went fishing each day on Muskie Lake with our typically great results.  The strong winds seemed to really trigger the Pike bite to be especially tenacious.  But this year,  we made a concerted effort to not just focus on the amazing fishing,  but to also appreciate every aspect of our Fireside vacation.  Just enjoying nature's beauty,  the companionship of friends and family,  and of course the delicious meals, all took on added value after being away from Fireside during the Covid Pandemic.     

Our last day included watching an Eagle swoop down and pick up a Pike just 15 feet from our boat.  We ended the fishing day with a triple as Jodie, Tony and Paul all caught Pike at the same time.  To be honest though, with the great fishing at Fireside Lodge, that is really not hard to do. 

We said our good-byes and made plans to return again next year.

Paul Capecchi

This week the weather settled into a fall like pattern with daytime highs from 58 to 64 degrees and nights falling as low as 39-degrees. This was a warning that winter weather is only 6-8 weeks away. As for the fishing it was fabulous for Muskie and Northern Pike for not only numbers, but also the big fish were showing up regularly.

DOA these two caught fish right away with Jeff catching 15+ Northern Pike and Smallmouth Bass alone and Ron’s totals were about the same. For Jeff this is his very first Canadian Fishing Adventure and he could not have a better person to show him around Little Vermilion Lake for the first time.

caught about a dozen Pike along with some Smallmouth Bass, and Ron landed a Muskie. 2nd day was a super fishing day catching 5 Muskie, with Jeff catching his first and second ever being a 35 in Muskie and a 36-inch Tiger Muskie. Ron caught two Muskie and 1 Tiger Muskie and had one break him off. Ron hooked up 3 Musky on 3 consecutive casts landing two of them. Jeff’s story was after he purchased a lure from my tackle shop he asked if it would catch a Muskie and kiddingly guaranteed it would. Well it not only caught a 36-inch Tiger Muskie but the next cast caught a 34-inch Northern Pike. They also caught several very large Smallmouth Bass in the 17-18 inch range.

Incredible Fishing for BIG Northern Pike at Fireside Lodge by Jeff

Northern Pike and at one point Jeff told Ron he would never say he did not want to catch another Pike period, however for today he had enough of catching Northern Pike. They also caught some Smallmouth Bass and they were dandy fish with Ron landing 3 Trophy Size Smallmouth over 18-inches and Jeff had 2 over 18-inches. 6th and final day they caught lots of fish, nothing giant but a lot of nice size Northern Pike.

Super Trophy Smallmouth Bass Fishing at Fireside Lodge in Northwest Ontario Canada by Jeff

Long time return guests Steve & Debra Johnson from Halltown, MO. were back to chase Little Vermilion Lake BIG Smallmouth Bass. 1st day by noon Steve caught some nice 15-17-inch Smallmouth Bass, and after the noon hour started catching pike landing about a half dozen 30-inches the biggest was 34-inches.

Fireside Lodge Monster Trophy Smallmouth Bass by Steve in Ontario Canada

2nd day had them getting into some Smallmouth bass 14 to 16.5-inches and Steve got a good one measuring 18.5-inches which is a Master Anglers Award Trophy qualifier. 3rd day was a really good day for Steve and Debra catching many Smallmouth Bass 14-17 inches; Steve landed two Master Anglers Award Trophy Smallmouth Bass 18-18.5-inches and had a special experience when trying to land a 17-18-inch Smallmouth Bass. As he was getting the Bass in position for Debra to net a GIANT Muskie muscled its way in by thrusting the net aside and snatching the Smallmouth Bass. The Muskie left with an explosive turn of its body splashing up water on both Debra and Steve. The fish paraded around with the Smallmouth Bass for a good amount of time before releasing it back to Steve. The fish had several large gashes in its sides and swam off, maybe back into the mouth of the Giant Musky? Steve said it was the largest fresh water fish he had ever seen and said it was at least the size of a 48-inch Mount we have above the entrance to our dinning room.

BIG Barred Trophy Smallmouth Bass Fishing by Steve in Ontario Canada

4th day started out rainy until about 1pm then turned nice. The fishing was not as active as the day before however they caught some Smallmouth Bass and Northern Pike. 5th day Steve and I discussed that the Smallmouth might be in transition from a late summer to an early fall pattern. In just 9 days the water temperatures dropped from 71 to 61.5 degrees so Steve was going to try some different locations. It helped as he had success catching Smallmouth Bass of all sizes however the larger 17-inch plus fish were in more typical early fall locations. 6th day had us into another cold front and this time the winds were from the Northeast. Steve, always searching for Smallmouth Bass, had a good day catching Northern Pike and did land a big 17.5-inch Smallmouth Bass.

7th day Debra caught Smallmouth Bass in the 14-16-inch range, and Steve had several larger fishing landing a 17.5-inch Smallmouth Bass and a 35-inch Northern Pike. 8th and final day was a cold, rainy, but calm day and Steve caught one of the largest Smallmouth Bass he has ever caught saying it had a very robust girth. No picture as Debra enjoyed her last day soaking up the wilderness that surrounds you at Fireside Lodge. They left saying the hope to return next year.

Chris with a Beauty Tiger Muskie Fishing at Fireside Lodge in Northwest Ontario Canada

Long Time Return guests Chris Grimes & Bob Fischer from Thurmount & Frederick, MD were back to chase anything that swims. They got started by catching a few fish on their day of arrival. 1st day after some tackle purchases they targeted Muskie each catching one in the Mid 30-inch range, and seeing a ton of follows. They had an unusual experience while fishing a structure as Muskie jumped clear out of the water behind them over 90-100 feet of water, so they casted to this area and Chris hooked up on something. First thinking he snagged up he realized that was impossible in 90 feet of water and the fight was on. He got the Muskie to the boat but it came unhooked just before Bob could get it netted.
