After a long cold Spring with normal water levels on Katchewanooka Lake which is part of the Trent Severn Waterway System the weather changed and we headed straight into summer weather. We were pleased to open 01st June for the new season welcoming back our regular group Bluevale Fishing Club. This is Bluevale's Collegiate ninth Carp fishing trip with teacher Mr. Darryl Keirstead along with Paul Moffatt and Shannon Henkel. Once again with a very well organized party the group were excited and once tackled up the fishing started. The fish soon came on with most of the group catching but it would be the Sunday after heavy baiting that the fish responded with fish after fish! A beauty of 29.lb to Hayden but it was to be a trip of a life time for Ryan with a magnificent 35. lb. Well done to Ryan. It's amazing to watch loons on the lake Oliie the Osprey and enjoying our magical sunsets while fishing at Lakeside Cottages. A total weight this year of 258. lb. A Fantastic start to the season! It's a real pleasure for me to see this and work along side all the great staff and students they all worked very hard at fishing everyone had a good time and it's a great pleasure to help out and host these very well organized well behaved young fishing students. Credit goes out to both the parents and the well organized party by Mr. Darryl Keirstead and the team.

Pete Bowman from Fish n Canada Show had been requesting to join us at Lakeside Cottages for some time wanting to try out our Superb Carp Fishing at the Lake. It's taken a few years for us to get together with cottage dates to film a show and allocate our Lakeside Swims. Last year was the year and what a treat for both Pete and son Hunter Bowman and the rest of the film crew! We finally arranged for Pete to do some filming here especially for the Carp. The weather was hot and even some of the fish were thinking of spawning the challenge was to get Hunter aged 14 years to catch one of these big Carp and after some fish were lost Hunter finally managed a beauty 25.lb common Carp! Well done to Hunter. It was a real pleasure to watch the excitement for Hunter Dad Pete and the film crew. Mid - week Pete and Hunter went out in the boat Bass fishing it was Hunter again that hooked a nice Bass. While back at the resort I continued to bait heavy the swims for the guys to return for some more Carp fishing. On the last day the sun was rising the film crew were ready Pete and I had our morning coffee then the rods went crazy and Pete landed the biggest Carp Pete has had to date a Fantastic 37.5 lb! What a way to end the film show! My work was done the show complete.
" Had an awesome week at Lakeside Cottages shooting is bound to become a personal favourite episode of Fish 'n Canada Show. Such a beautiful scene wonderful hosts as Hunter quoted " the nicest people he has ever met and the fishing was the best ever ".

During summer months we are delighted to see the repeat of many of our Canadian families returning year after year the children enjoy the paddle boats rides the play area our superb safe sandy beach the toy box taking a canoe or kayak lessons. The children enjoy playing for hours on the beach swimming in the shallow bay area fishing off the docks for their very first fish sometimes watching me play a wild hungry monster carp the biggest fish they will see! It's the early mornings and late evenings for the Carp fishing when it is really very hot in the summer months of July and August.

I must just add about the Little Lake Music fest in Peterborough shows are excellent starts at the end of June goes though to the end of summer with various shows twice a week with FREE admission its well worth seeing!

Last week of July we welcome back Sebastiaan and lovely Miranda with son Nicolas. Sebastiaan having fished here many times needed no prompting and was soon into fishing along with his wife Miranda who also likes to fish. Last year Sebastiaan had his biggest 32.lb. at Lakeside Cottages so this year a new target was set. Choosing to fish late afternoons into the evenings would soon produce numerous twenties and a good 28. lb on this trip . Enjoyed spending family time together swimming and many other activities with other families.

End of August into September with the weather remaining hot we are delighted to see young Len and Lady Jane from Sheffield England to return to Lakeside Cottages for a belated honeymoon. Len and Jane flew in from Manchester U.K and took the century coach transfer to the resort and hired a car the next day. Both love to fish and as usual the friendly banter would start between them on who would catch the biggest and the most fish. Jane was soon into catching her share of twenty pounders and in one afternoon catching four twenty pounders in a row much to Len's torment!
On the same day Len would have his fishing rod pulled in by a big Carp. " " Len this was your moment of a big fish but sadly lost both". However the next day I went out in the boat and managed to find the rod much to Len's joy! At the end of the 12 days it would be Jane who caught the most and the biggest with 13 over 20.lb and a personal best of 26.lb. Well done Jane and Len did a great job netting the fish. Both were rewarded with a honeymoon pontoon cruise on the Lily Pad.
" Here we are again in Paradise and lots of fish for Jane enjoyed the cruise and watching the wildlife with Eileen in the evenings. We will be back ." Young Len & Lady Jane Sheffield England.

Thanksgiving weekend in October and all our wonderful guests arrive in. First to arrive in was Dan and the lovely Karen followed by Cat and Bernice. Once again we are delighted to hold our Carp Thanksgiving fishing contest but first I needed to remind everyone the main key here is the pre-baiting.
This weekend was once again an amazing time as everyone worked extremely hard baiting and fishing at all times of the day and night even in much cooler temperatures this time and the Carp at one time seemed to be winning then in the end it was Bernice who was rewarded with the biggest 27.lb and Dan well done on a prize for the men's biggest Carp. We were also joined by John Darlene and their son Jack who came all the way from Saskatchewan for some Carp and to enjoy Thanksgiving weekend. John had his biggest fish off the big dock and to everyone top marks to you all for sticking with it baiting and fishing at all hours in wind rain and sunshine. It was lovely to have our regular guests join us again Dennis Mina Silvanna and Joan. Thank you for sharing the fun and laughter around the campfire and sincere thanks to C#2 for the wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner and all the kind gifts Eileen and I so look forward to seeing you all next year!

Well another season has finished we have had some excellent results this year with some exceptional individual catches. Many of our guests achieving their personal bests and with the start of a long cold Spring we headed straight into a hot summer lasting well into late September. It's been a good fishing year for many personal bests! It does pay to work hard and you will find the rewards can be great. All used boilies and corn and for those who persevere once again the rewards are well deserved but as I say every year the main feed must still go in to keep fish in the area. Many new records were broken many achieved personal bests congratulations to you all. Another great fishing season over and FANTASTIC memories of 2018. Many thanks to you all.

Looking forward to seeing everyone next year all the best, Mike & Eileen.
