Fireside Lodge Fishing Report 6/8 to 6/15 2013
Trophy 22-inch Smallmouth Bass Fishing Fireside Lodge Canada
Except for having one heavy Thunderstorm the weather most of the week was very nice having cool nights and mornings with very pleasant days. Water temperatures are still staying cool for this time of year and weed growth is very slight. Water levels are really good and in fact high to the point we need to be careful of some floating logs when travelling down the lake.

Long time guests since 1993 Jack & Dorie Hires from Valparasio, IN were here for their first of two trips with us in 2013. This couple seems to make new friends every time they visit Fireside Lodge as they are very good conversationalists along with being engaging with others. Dorie became famous for her fishing feat last August as she caught two trophy Northern Pike 42 & 42.5-inches on consecutive days with help from her husband & guide Jack. This visit they caught some nice Pike & Smallmouth Bass, and to Jack’s surprise he caught 5 very sizable Lake Trout while fishing in less than 15ft of water. That along with the Smallmouth Bass still in their pre-spawn stage tells us everything about the water temps. Jack & Dorie left in tears saying goodbye to the special people they met and are looking very forward to their return visit this August.

Guest Since 1999 Dan Mosier & Son Nathan from Lincoln, NE arrived ready to make another set of memories fishing at Fireside Lodge. 1st day these two got right to it catching a bunch of Northern Pike & Smallmouth Bass & Nathan landed an 18.5” Master Anglers Award Smallmouth Bass. 2nd and 3rd days they caught well over 20 Smallmouth Bass along with some Northern Pike and a lot of the Smallmouth fell in the 16 to 17.5” range. It was exciting fishing as most were caught on top-water poppers. When this happens you miss as many as you catch but the missed fish are just as exciting as the ones you catch. 4th day was hard for anyone to comprehend as these two caught 195 fish total, 193 Northern Pike and 2 Big Smallmouth Bass with Dan catching a Master Anglers Award Trophy measuring 18”. WOW, what a GREAT day fishing and catching. Both were so exhausted at days end they went right to bed with Dan saying the next day he had Pike elbow from handling so many Northern Pike. Their final day was another terrific day fishing and in just 5.5 hours of fishing these two caught 11 Smallmouth Bass all 17 to 18”, with Dan catching another Trophy over 18”, and 51 Northern Pike. Both left having made another set of father and son memoires at Fireside Lodge and reserved their dates for 2014.
