Trophy brook trout like this are amazingly common among anglers who fish Lake Nipigon in the month of June.
The Nipigon River holds the current world record brook trout   The current world record brook trout was caught by Dr. W.J. Cook on the Nipigon River in July of 1915. The fish which wasn't weighed until 21 days after it was caught tipped the scales at 14.5 pounds! This Nipigon River record has become the longest standing world record in sport fishing history! We can only imagine what Dr. Cook's brook trout weighed when it was caught. Members of the char family, brook trout are one of the most sought after species in the Northwest Ontario region and the Nipigon River and nearby Lake Nipigon remain as two of the best places to not only catch numbers of brook trout,…
Northern Lights, Milky Way and Full Moon: A Trifecta of Awesome, Manitoulin Island
Photos have been submitted by local talents within Northeastern Ontario. The camera settings used by these photographers have been shared to assist you in your pursuit to capture the Aurora.   With widespread and smaller communities in Northeastern Ontario, we have darker night skies, which means a clearer view of the stars and the Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis. While you can never guarantee you will see them, you can increase your odds if you make the right considerations. Here are some tools to assist you in your hunt and some tips to help you capture the Aurora.   Aurora by Ray St. Louis Jr.Taken: 2013/08/04 at 11:25 p.m. on the French River, near Dokis First Nation.Camera: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX10/…
River Monsters host Jeremy Wade in the waters near Vermilion Bay Lodge.
Jeremy Wade, host of Animal Planet's River Monsters TV show, travels the world looking for big fish that may have — as per local folklore — attacked people. This year's season premiere, which airs April 5, is all about muskellunge, or "muskies." And when Jeremy Wade is searching the world for big muskies, he comes to Northwestern Ontario. Wade made a number of stops in the region when filming. One was Vermilion Bay Lodge on Eagle Lake, a lake well known for big muskie. The show's producers, in researching muskies, found an article from the Winnipeg Sun about a boy who had been bitten on the leg by a muskie on Eagle Lake. Gord Bastable, owner of Vermilion Bay Lodge,…
10 Awesome Things to Get You Fired Up for Spring
Winter. Even the slightest mention of that horrifying season is enough to incite thoughts sheer terror. Ontario winters are notorious for making even the burliest of people want to put on their thickest wool sweater and barricade themselves indoors until their thermostat thaws. Every year we're lulled into a false sense of promise that winter will be a wonder land filled with snow ball fights, and christmas lights. But lets be honest, we're looking at six brutally long months of nothing but scraping windshields and unsuspectingly bruising tailbones on black ice. Worst of all is wandering doe-eyed into the dark, freezing morning twilight so that you can do damage control on the frozen wasteland that is your drive way. Constantly…

Last Call for Winter: Cross-Country Skiing in Thunder Bay
In Duluth, Minnesota, all of the snow has gone in less than a week and on Saturday it was sunny, 60F (15C) and with warm south winds..... Personally I am not ready for that. My buddies Jim and Tony were in the same mindset. We found ourselves nodding heads and saying, "yeah" a lot...lamenting and dreaming. Somehow it just came to a point where we decided we should load up and drive north until we hit good skiing, it would most likely be our last chance. That drive took us up the North Shore, over the Canadian border and back to what is becoming a favorite town for me, Thunder Bay. We left Duluth and folks were wearing shorts. However,…

  St. Urho, the pseudo super hero, has been embraced by the New World Finns as much as Finn-glish and Mojakka. St. Urho came on the scene in Thunder Bay in the early ‘80s and has been celebrated on Bay Street on the Saturday that lands closest to March 16th – the unofficial official St. Urho’s Day – ever since. Photo by Kathy Toivonen This year, Saturday, March 14, St. Urho will once again incarnate as a 5 foot tall, carved, wooden statue to join in the festivities at the Finnish Labour Temple on 314 Bay Street. The day’s activities run all day from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., which include a market, presentations, food, and of course, the much…
