I booked my trip about three weeks ago for Lochlomond Camp, near Longlac ON. The previous place we stayed at (Northwood Lodging) closed/sold over the last year and we needed a new place to stay.

Owners of the new place said they had already reserved 2 of the 7 cabins out for next year already from USA groups. I would definitely book ASAP, as we are all eager to get fishing for next year.

We typically bring everything with us and only need to buy bait and minor other items while there. Bringing an arrival meal and departure meal makes life a lot easier.

For those going to NW Ontario I would book ASAP if not earlier. We have had 2 years worth of rollovers so the first 10 weeks of the 2022 season have been locked up since last June. It will be virtually impossible to book with a camp during May/June next year for those camps that are mostly American.

Just my 2 cents.

There will be angler attrition from those who found other locations during Covid. There will be those who for personal reasons aren't vaccinated. But, I'm assuming there will be lost camps also. Those camps who couldn't survive and haven't found new owners yet.

I think in the case of Canadian fishing the sooner the better would apply.

I know Cedar Lake Camp was recently sold, thereís probably a few others that might be considering it. Definitely a tough couple of seasons for the camp owners and everyone else associated with the tourism industry.

Iíve got a fall trip booked for Pelican/Abram lakes and Iím thinking a spring trip to LOWs or Eagle might be a possibility.

I have quite a few fillet knives, some are custom and expensive and others the more traditional Rapalas etc... All are good, but if I had to recommend one knife it would be a Dexter based on price and quality. More times than not, you will see professional fish mongers, salt water guides, fish cleaning stations on Erie (or wherever) all using Dexters. If it's good enough for them everyday, it's perfect for me for fishing and breaking down a deer, etc...

Default 3 Trips for next year

As Iam getting up in age (73) ,my sister who is (69) and I have decided to go on 3 fishing trips this year We are fortunate having the $$ to do this so we are going ahead with our plans. Have made 2 reservations one for an outpost on Antenna Lake with Clarks May 28 2022 to June 4th 20222 and another at Uchi Lake Lodge for Sept 10th to Sept 17th 2022. We also are going June 29th to July 7th to North Caribou Lake with our friends from Pittsburgh for the 4 time to this lake which we love.

Not sure I ever stop planning as I am a planner by trade so .......... Just made reservations for the Friday night stay last week as you need to make them early because every hotel near the border fills up fast come the first of the year. After 20 years planning is fairly effortless as the plan has remained pretty consistent. Meal plans nearly set in stone now and it's really just reminding people of what to bring for what nights meal. As people come and go from the core group we give them things to take care of and after they make a trip or two then they know how it goes. We stop at the same places to get gas etc every year so when we depart we don't even try to stay together on the road like we used to as we know we will catch up at the next scheduled stop. This time of year we start to get excited for the sports show and the trip so we text a bit more and i send out meal plans and reservation confos and then some pics start flying around and by memorial day we get together to finalize things which nowadays is just confirmation as to what time we are leaving(same time each year) and what kind of beer each is getting at the beer store after we cross. but to answer the op question, I plan all year long and even after 20 years we still learn things we can do better next time or things that would make the next trip better or more comfortable and enjoyable. I normally note these things while in camp or soon thereafter so as to implement them for the next trip. good luck, tight lines!
