Miles Bay Camp Blog

Well another successful year has come and gone.  The camp is closed for the season and we are getting back to the swing of things on the mainland.  We had very successful deer hunts this year - every hunter went home with a nice buck!

Next year is shaping up to be a busy one, so if you think you might like to come and stay with us, especially in June, you might want to send us an email as the weeks are almost all booked up.

Today is Thanksgiving for all of you in the United Staes so we would just like to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving, from Matt, Jenn, Sadie and Rex.

So as you may have noticed it has been awhile since I have written here.  My mom has been sick for the past couple of months so I have been busy with that. Also, we have been really busy out here at the camp.  Fishing has been good, the weather has been hot and the swimming great!  We are into Muskie season and everyone has been catching some nice ones.  Just this past week some guests landed  49.5" and 50.5" Muskies - not bad!  Walleye fishing is good as usual, we have been really enjoying them at the fish frys along with the homemade buns, potatoes and beans.  

We have added a new addition to the family, his name is Gibson (so far) and he is a real cutie.  

Until next time....

Well, we have had above normal temps for the last week and it is supposed to continue into this week as well.  The days have been sunny and in the 70's and at night it has been in the 60's - pretty nice for March, but not so good for the ice.  I think we might be making it out to the camp by boat earlier then we ever have before!  So this puts a halt to progress on #1, but if the temps stay the same and the ice is off the lake soon, Matt will be able to go out by boat to finish things up.  We have some other repair work to do as well, but we should be in good shape by May.  

Some of you may have noticed that you have not yet received a newsletter.  Well, I am working on them, but our computer has been broken and we just got it fixed so hopefully I will have it done soon.

We have not yet received our fishing license issuing equipment yet, hopefully it comes soon, I am going to send an email out right now to see their ETA.

Bye for now....Jenn

Today I have been working on the newsletter that I will hopefully be sending out soon.  All this writing about the camp reminded me that I have not made an entry here in quite some time.  

Work on #1 is proceeding and it should be ready for our first group (you know who you are) and if not we will let you know if you need to bring a hot plate and sleeping bags - just kidding!!  Matt was out at the camp at the end of January to do some work and he also managed to get a little fishing in - he caught a very nice trout over in Whitefish Bay, about a 20 minute snowmobile ride from the camp.

We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season, we were fairly busy ourselves visiting family and friends and enjoying the outdoors.  

I am sure by now a lot of you have received an Outdoors card renewal form in the mail.  You can do this online and as far as I know we will be able to do this at the camp as well.  At first I didn't think we could, but I spoke with someone today who told me we could.  We haven't gotten our new license issuing machine yet, but it is supposed to be here soon.  Gone will be the days I have to write everything down, now we just swipe your card and out pops your license.  Ah, the joys of tecnology.

Well that is it for now, I am off to finish up those newsletters.


Well here it is the end of June and I see I haven't made a blog entry since February. Sorry everyone, it just gets so busy around here I kind of forget about this sometimes. The season started out great, guests were catching lots of fish to eat, plus many in the 20+ range. The weather hasn't been that great, but it is finally looking better, we have had 2 full days of warmth and sunshine. The fishing is still going strong, people are catching fish with any kind of bait, the fish are not being picky, and they are being caught everywhere, from the shorelines to the reefs. Until next time....
