Default Introduction and fishing report - A week at Eddie's North

First a bit about myself. I live in the Ontario, Canada and fish for just about everything that swims. Walleye are certainly one of my favorites to chase all seasons of the year but especially the Bay of Quinte in the fall. Most recently Was up on the Attawapiskat River at Eddie North's for a trip of a life time. http://www.eddienorth.com/

Well what does one say that hasn't all ready been said about Eddie North's Attawapiskat Adventures? Just a truly magical place. Beautiful county, wildlife and lots of fish, BIG ones too.

Our trip started off bright and early with an uneventfully trip to Nakina, well Ken and I almost hit a bear but no harm done. Eddie had suggested (as did Solopaddler) that we stay at the https://lowertwinlakes.com/Home.html for our stay over before our flight the next day. Clean cabin, comfortable beds, a view of the lake while having the evening beverage, nothing fancy but I'd go back again. Thanks John and Karin.

The next morning we were up early and off to check in. We knew that it would be a bit of a later departure but like kids on Christmas morning, who is going to keep you in bed till later. We got weighed in and then off for some breakfast and grabbed some bait.

By the time we got back to the airbase we were being loading and soon were on our way. That Otter has to be one of the more comfortable planes. Ken and I decided we'd have a hard time going back to a Beaver or smaller. Plenty of room to stretch out and snooze.

The flight was smooth as could be and soon we were landing in our piece of paradise for a week. It didn't take to long before the bags were unpack and the fishing gear was rigged and ready to go. We ventured out for a few hours, grabbed some dinner and then back out for an evening fish. Nothing too big to brag about but some good fish were caught.

Ken and I did well with the fishing the first couple of days but didn't take many/any pics of the fish. All decent fish but nothing we felt picture worthy - getting picky in my old age I guess. Lincoln on the other hand came up with 3 or 4 cameras and was snapping and videoing everything.....hence the 35 gigs of files to go through.

Later that day smoke rolled in from a forest fire that was in the area. First time I've experience that .

Storm came in but was short lived.

Being completely exhausted (I was running on about 5 hours of sleep over 2 days) we opted for a bit of a sleep in the next morning and started with a big breakfast. Then we hit the water hard for the rest of the week. You know they say a picture is worth a thousand words so let the picture do the talking.

Chilly mornings.

We did eat very well. John was a master at the skillet. [IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Me/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/msohtmlclip1/01/clip_image052.gif[/IMG]

For the last couple of days we switched up the teams as Ken was suffering from some heat stroke and John just wanted a couple of days to sleep in - with young ones at home I don't blame him.

Lincoln and I were up at 4:30 and on the water shortly afterwards. Sunrise over Eddie's camp.

We also had our resident caribou come by for a few pics.

Certain had to have seen us but it wasn't until it smelled us that it went back into the bush.

We saw one bear that morning as well but didn't get a very good shot. Eddie and the crew had seen on near camp the previous day that they figured went 500 pounds!

Our much smaller bear.
[IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Me/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/msohtmlclip1/01/clip_image074.jpg[/IMG]

Dropped Lincoln on shore to go chase the bear but he only came back with a pic of the paw print. (He didn't really chase the bear, it was long gone by the time we beached the boat.

[IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Me/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/msohtmlclip1/01/clip_image075.jpg[/IMG]

Ken and John did make it out and John got his PB walleye at 29". Beauty fish!!

[IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Me/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/msohtmlclip1/01/clip_image076.jpg[/IMG]

And of course we had to squeeze in a shore lunch.

Lincoln and I ended on the water for 16 hours that day before coming back to camp. Happy with the day but exhausted - still played cards till midnight though. A later start to the day for Lincoln and I but still on the water by 6am.

A few fish boated and the sun came out and hit us like a ton of bricks. We threw out the anchor and had a short nap. Lincoln's snoring woke me up and I noticed he was holding onto his rod (fishing rod) with a line in the water. So of course not being one to miss an opportunity, grabbed the line and tugged like ****. Never seen anyone jump up like that before. [IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Me/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/msohtmlclip1/01/clip_image085.gif[/IMG] We pulled up anchor and were making our way out of the bay when a fish jumped. Linc is determined to get it and tossing in a line. We were thinking that they were whitefish jumping but were not sure. ( I did see a sturgeon jump the one morning right in front the the boat. [IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Me/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/msohtmlclip1/01/clip_image086.gif[/IMG] )
Linc is suddenly setting the hook and brings in this.

[IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Me/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/msohtmlclip1/01/clip_image087.jpg[/IMG]


We dropped the anchor again and proceeded to slammed walleye like crazy. Midday sun and in 4-6ft of water we must have caught and release over 50 fish in a couple of hours.

Ken and John did well on the spot as well later in the day.

Linc's biggest of the trip.

Exhausted after another sun up to sundown day.

We certainly enjoyed the bacon wrapped walleye John had prepared that evening.

Just a fantastic trip. Way too many pics to include them all but I think you get the idea, a must visit place - add it to your bucket list. I've slapped together a video to get some more pics in but it still doesn't put a dent into the shots we (Lincoln) took. I've got to go through the video clips still and will see what is there when I have some time. Thanks for reading!
