May 26-29 French River

Our group of 4 headed north to French River expecting to deal with lots of weather issues.  Forecast called for showers and T-storms every day.   Apparently Canadian weather forecasters are as “off” as their American counterparts, because honestly, I’m not sure it could have been nice.   No wind to speak of, limited blackflies, over 75 degrees and sunny.   Oh, and I forgot to mention the pike bite was on!

In 2 1/2 days, we landed 279 pike.   For each one landed there was follows and lost fish.   Jack and I even set the group record for 78 combined pike in 1 day for the boat!

The last day, Jack decided to try out some of the Bay Rats that are so good on Lake Erie, and landed several pike and a nice bass!

Beautiful scenery, and a very bright full moon on a calm night our last night on the river!

The French River is one of my favorite places to go…and Anne, Joe and Keith at French River Lodge have been treating us great for years!
