The Poppy and its Thunder Bay connection - A Trip Through History
  Did you know the iconic red Remembrance Day poppy worn on lapels across Canada has a Thunder Bay connection? In 1921, a Frenchwoman named Anna E. Guérin traveled to both Britain and Canada to propose making the poppy a symbol of remembrance for soldiers killed in the Great War. Her first Canadian stop was a meeting of the Great War Veterans Association of Canada (a predecessor of the Legion) held at Thunder Bay’s Prince Arthur Hotel on Cumberland St. At the meeting on July 4, the members decided to adopt the poppy as its “Flower of Remembrance,” and that November, poppies were distributed in Canada for the first time. Today, the hotel, now known the Prince Arthur Waterfront Hotel…
Big Sunset Country walleye!
Everyone has their reasons for choosing their favourite bait and tackle, in this article, Pro Angler Jeff Gustafson talks about the benefits of using minnowbaits for walleye.   Years of guiding on many different Sunset Country lakes has taught me there is one style of bait that anglers can tie on, fish with ease and do a lot of catching. Minnowbaits or jerkbaits as they are called in bass circles, come in many shapes, sizes and colours, and have all originated from the Original Floating Rapala carved by Lauri Rapala in the 1930s. They are a type of lure that is highly efficient at covering water and triggering fish to strike, especially big fish of all species. Jerkbaits are often…
Nice summer northern pike
From the looks of the following fish, I'd say that the record high water levels in 2014 wrecked only the docks, not the fishing.    In 2014, Ontario's Sunset Country had one of the highest lake levels ever, certainly in the last 50 years anyways. We had a late Spring and had ice on the lakes until the walleye opener in May. The walleye spawn was really behind this Spring and many wondered how the water levels would affect the fishing. Take a look at some of these photos taken from the resort and lodges in the area. They'll show you exactly what kind of a year we had for fishing this summer. It was fantastic!! Sure, some of the…

Curling in Thunder Bay - Winter Fun Between the Sheets
If curling is your game, then there really is snowbetterplace to be than in Thunder Bay, Ontario this winter season. Come and experience the sheets at one of three storied curling clubs here in Northwest Ontario, all of which have fascinating histories dating back to the late 1800's. The Port Arthur Curling Club was formed in 1888, while the Fort William Curling Club was formed in 1891. Interestingly enough, this was at a time when members were required to supply their own stones, which is hard to imagine given that today curling rocks weigh over 40 pounds! Of course the rich history of all three of these clubs, including the Kakabeka Falls Curling Club, can be seen easily from the…
From prison to park - Unveiling a storied past at Neys Provincial Park
  The history in Thunder Bay and Northwest Ontario is deep and storied and much is able to be explored today. From prison to playground, Neys Provincial Park, located 60 km east of Terrace Bay on Highway 17, is a study in contrast. Beneath the soft carpet of moss hides the ruins of German prisoner of war and Japanese internment camps of World War II. Off season, the visitors’ centre is closed; however, one can still hike and explore as a day visitor. Just outside the centre are a plaque and a mounted informational photo that set the scene of the past: beautiful sandy coves of Lake Superior were lined with warehouse style barracks and barbed wire fences for working…
