Giant Lake Trout and Pike on Lake Athabasca: The movie

Subscribers should be receiving the March/April issue of Outdoor Canada magazine any day now, and among the great features, they’ll find a travel adventure story by yours truly. The subject? Trophy lake trout and northern pike fishing on Saskatchewan’s Lake Athabasca (at Lakers Unlimited’s Spring Bay Lodge).

As promised in the article (”A sure thing,” starting on page 84), I’m posting a video montage of my piscatorial escapades on Athabasca with my buddy Ted Cawkwell and guide Bryan Parker. The footage is a bit jumpy and the wind is noisy, but the fish are big! Enjoy!
