Milt the Talking Musky - Helping Youngsters Read

For several decades I’ve loved musky fishing but it’s only been the last ten years that the mighty muskellunge has become such an integral part of my career as a resource management technician in Ontario. Every spring for 2-5 weeks I’m trapnetting up on Gloucester Pool near Lake Huron’s Georgian Bay to capture enough ripe female and male musky for an egg collection. We fertilize the eggs on the boat and they are then delivered to the musky hatchery at Fleming College in Lindsay Ontario. Here the eggs hatch, and fry, then fingerlings are cared for under the watchful eye of the hatchery manager and musky whisperer-Mark Newell. When late fall comes,  I stock all those 8-12 inch muskie into Lake Simcoe, an hour north of Toronto Ontario with help from good friends at Muskies Canada. We also electro fish for them as part of our ongoing monitoring work in Lake Simcoe. This is all part of the Lake Simcoe Muskie Restoration Program.

Quest for Ontario’s Rarest Trout – The Aurora Trout

September 21-25 2017- Somewhere south of Gogama Ontario in the wilds of beautiful Northern Ontario

About Aurora Trout:
Named after the aurora borealis because of their unique color patterns, the Aurora Trout (Salvelinus fontinalis timagamiensis) is a unique variant of the Brook Trout. It is a member of the Trout and Salmon family and looks similar to Brook Trout, yet adult fish lack the yellow marks throughout the dorsal region and exhibit few to no red spots along with those blue halos that brook trout are famous for. Adult’s average about 1 to 3 lbs, and the Ontario record is 6.44 lbs.

A Short but Amazing Trip to BC with my son

Whale Watching, Hiking, Bug Watching, Suspended Bridge Walking, Fine Dining and More …

September 2017
Although my month long vacation off work was originally destined to focus on nearby fishing trips, I’ve never been one to turn down golden opportunities and when a trip to British Columbia was handed to me on a silver platter by my oldest son Tyler, I sure as shootin’ couldn’t let it slip away. Although Tyler and I could only spend four days in this beautiful province, we sure made the best of it … and I’m happy to share those little adventures with you all now.
