Border Bob's? In the past, I believe they close for the winter.

ncggun I grew up in Saskatoon and do agree the berries make really good pies but I must admit that I now prefer huckleberry pie, sorry. I certainly hope that we can welcome all you guys back next summer but I am not that hopeful with our inept leadership. Best wishes.

srj We have had Saskatoon berry pie a couple times while waterfowl hunting in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Best pie ever....the preserves are awesome too.

Another thing to miss regarding the border closure.

bigwalleye1 If you ever have the opportunity to have a piece of Saskatoon berry pie....avail yourself of it. You won't regret it.

On a snow goose hunt years ago the local town held a hunter's supper, and much of the food was donated by the locals. The locals we stayed with knew everyone, and we made some great connections in the area, and it's where I was first introduced to Saskatoon berries.

As to Canadian Jam, I bring back a can for all my employees when we do the annual Ontario trips, sadly missed it last year, hoping for 2021. Yah, I know you can get it in the states, but it doesn't have half the label in French down here....

I needed to have something in the books for my small group to keep the tradition and nucleus together. Dad is getting older (may need major surgery) and the annual fishing trip is something that took a great deal of effort by me to get off the ground several years ago. I know my efforts are hopefully laying the foundation for our children and grandchildren to have an annual expedition that brings us together.

Normally I am planning on how many salted minnows to bring. How much those leeches are going to cost me. This is different. And eating my Canada Jam thinking about it all.
For years I heard about this jam, but didn't pay to much attention, finally I tried it....got my CASE of it a few months ago. Yes, it was so [email protected]#&ed good, I ordered a case of it!! Two of every flavor, Can't decide if I like the strawberry, blueberry, or the blackberry the best, but all the rest are right there also, all flavors very good.

Good luck & enjoy your trip & post an up-date when you return!

We rented a VRBO right at the mouth of Pike Bay. Never been to Vermilion, was looking forward to our 3rd year at Abamasagi with Twin Lakes Outfitters. The teen boys are excited...so I must be doing something right.
