Bass season opening on the Crab Lake with Ivan, June 24-25, 2016

It was booked 2 months ago and the last campsite left was 311 - the same we finished with Ivan the season of 2015. The weather was hot, sunny and almost no wind what I like very much. Fishing was fantastic and at the end we cached a really big bass about 5-6 pounds. Some pictures below.

Solo Reconnaissance Trip on The Georgian Bay in Massassauga Provincial Park, one day - June 15, 2016

It takes me 2 hours to drive from my home in Caledon to the Moon River Marina on Woods Bay. I parked there for $10 and launched my inflatable kayak from the public place. My goal was to check the campsites 217 to 221 for future longer trips. Below is the Map with my route.

There and back I followed same route. I reached  site #220, but it was occupied and I returned to 221 and stayed there for the lunch.
 Total distance estimated by the map and time was near 20 km. I started from Marina at 10:00 and was at the site 220 at 2:00 PM. Started from #221 at 5:00 PM and at 700 was back at Marina. So I checked sites 221, 217, 219, and 220. I think 217 and 220 are most attractive, especially 220, which is in a small secluded inlet. I didn't reach #218 which seems very attractive too from the description.

Site 221, where I had a lunch.

Season opening with Irina on the Crab Lake, one day trip - May 22, 2016

Irina was driving and the way to the Crab Lake seemed much shorter to me than when I'm driving myself. We lost one rod (it drowned by the accident), cached 6 perches and rock basses. Irina roasted them and we ate them on site 315 (emergency site). Below are some views on the Wolf Lake and Crab Lake.
