After a very wet Spring and with high water levels on Katchewanooka Lake part of the Trent Severn Waterway System for the first time I can ever recall the Waterway System did not open for the May Victoria weekend. A delay opening for us then finally we were pleased to open 01st June for the new season and delighted to welcome back our regular group Bluevale Fishing Club. This is Bluevale’s Collegiate eighth 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 to start and were soon into fishing off the lawns in between enjoying barbeques celebrating Josh’s 18th Birthday watching loons on the lake, Ollie the Osprey the wildlife is simply amazing and enjoying our magical sunsets! One year a total of 415 lb of fish was landed by The Bluevale Fishing Club with 25 runs caught and 25 lost. What an amazing fishing trip for them all. So as you can see this year the pressure was on!  After lengthy baiting the fish started to respond and with several catching fish up to 24 lb but it was too be on the Sunday Ben Schlosser not only had the biggest fish but to see Ben break Bluevale’s Carp record with a magnificent 37.02 lb! was fantastic and what a way to start 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 the fishing everyone had a good time its 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 team.

Pete Bowman from Fish ‘n Canada Show has 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. This year was the year and what a treat for both Pete and his 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 is getting hotter 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 the Carp winning some fish were lost Hunter finally managed a beauty of 25.lb common Carp! Well done to Hunter. It was a pleasure to watch the excitement for Hunter Dad Pete and film crew. As the week went on Pete went out in the boat for some Bass fishing but 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 very last day the sun was rising the film crew were ready Pete and I had our morning coffee then whilst Hunter was fast asleep the rods went crazy and Pete landed the biggest Carp he has had to date a Fantastic 37.5 lb! What a way to end the film show! My work was done and the show was 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. Thank you to Mike & Eileen for your fantastic hospitality ” All the best Fish’ n Canada Show.

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. One of our regular fishing guests Big Alan always tells us “It's more then just fishing at Lakeside Cottages” we have just about everything for the entire family for everyone of all ages.

Sebastian and the family returned in August for the fishing and family time with family visiting from Denmark. Sebastiaan having fished here many times needed no prompting and was soon into fishing.

Choosing to fish into the evenings so they could all spend family time together including sightseeing trips swimming and enjoying the many activities with the children at the resort. This was to be a good choice as the fish decided to feed in the evenings. Sometimes you just have to be flexible. As the week progressed several twenties up to 29.lb were caught also Sjark from Denmark had a personal best Carp 29.lb well done but it was on the Friday when Sebastiaan caught his biggest fish a superb 32 .lb. A great end to a great family week. “Thank you Mike & Eileen had a good relaxing time with the family ” Sjark & Tanja Denmark .Thank you  for the delicious cookies from Denmark. Hope to see you again next time visiting your family in Canada.  Tight lines Mike

Last year Bob and Brenda returned to Lakeside Cottages in September for Bob’s Carp fix and I could see straight away Bob was a dedicated fisherman fishing at all times of the day.  This year Bob travelled on his own as the lovely Brenda was unable to join us. Bob was soon meeting up with cottage friends at the Lake then off fishing different hot spots on a mission to catch from different places. Bob was sure to do this catching 30 fish in just one day and then 17 fish another day. Bob deserved all the rewards from fishing even managed to join the barbecues at the lake and a total fish for this holiday was 104 fish with 17 over 20.lb. Well done! Although Bob did not win back a tin of Heinz Beans (a new tradition with folks  who has the next 30.lb Carp) on this trip but does get rewarded for catching the most fish on his own. “This Holiday will stay in my memory for a long time thank you both for a fabulous trip.” Bob Heinz! Thanks for the wonderful gifts we found in the cottage the tin of Heinz is waiting for you next time. Tight  Lines. Mike & Eileen

Sure enough Paul would catch a nice 20.lb then Tom had a nice 17.lb then Dad Paul had a whopper 35.13.lb! One happy fisherman! My work was done. Tom and his sister Ruth enjoyed the canoe and kayaking swimming seeing the Turtles playing shuffleboard campfires and magical sunsets. Sue enjoyed reading relaxing shopping and most of all enjoying our amazing Lake scenery. “ Thank you for a fantastic holiday your hospitality was second to none only wish the week was longer.

Well another season has finished we have had some excellent results this year with higher average weights. Many of our guests achieving their personal bests with the start of a wet spring then straight into summer it has been the hottest September and Fall on record for Ontario. It’s been a good fishing year for 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 2017.  Many thanks to you all. 

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