Pssssss! We could hear the loud hissing noise just as we were about to pull off the highway and onto the roadway leading to the fishing resort. Our ominous arrival at Olive the Lake Resort may have begun with a blown tire but there’s no doubt it let folks at the resort know that the Wegman brothers have made arrived! Knowing time was of the essence, I scurried over to the resort's boat launch and parked my truck and Nitro bass boat ready to launch just as the tire went completely flat. Right away, Bruce MacDonald ... the owner and resort guests Scot Primo and his wife Cindy came out to welcome us and ...even better- help to change the flat. It was a strangely memorable and wonderful start to an even more wonderful fishing vacation at the end of September with my brother Marcel (aka Red).
For Immediate Release: October 4, 2014
Orillia, Ontario Canada: Organizers of the Bass Pro Shops Lake Simcoe Open bass tournament, hosted by the Aurora Bassmasters, are very happy to announce they have re-signed the legendary Big Jim McLaughlin to be MC of their tournament weigh-in ceremonies for the 2014 event out of Orillia Oct 18th.
Orillia Ontario: With less than a month left until Canada’s record setting bass tournament gets underway, Mustang Survival has provided a wonderful incentive for those wishing to compete. “Mustang will supply four MS185 Classic Floater Suits as an added incentive for anglers to register now for Canada’s premier one day bass tournament. That means the Mustang Early Bird Draw Prize will see two teams … all four anglers win one of our premier floater suits valued at almost $400 each,” said Al Thompson of Mustang Canada
To capitalize on this opportunity and to ensure they pay the same entry fee as last year, anglers must register on or before October 10th.
Once bass season rolls around here in southern Ontario (3rd or 4th Saturday in June depending on the area) there usually aren’t too many occasions when I go out and willingly target another species. That’s not to say I don’t appreciate or enjoy fishing for trout, big pike, muskie or even panfish – but day in and day out until bass closes at the end of November, I’d just as soon fish the best- and in my mind bass are it baby!
