MIA?? Shows underway

No. Not really missing in action, just taking some time off from blogging and focusing on matters here at home. We trust that everyone’s new year is off to a great start, and with February right around the corner, some of you no doubt, will start thinking about your upcoming trip to camp. (like us diehards aren’t always thinking about the trip to camp!)

To be perfectly honest, there just isn’t a whole lot to blog about when camp is not in season. It was nice to get out on the road to the Chicago and Madison All-Canada shows earlier this month. Thank you to all of our guests who stopped in at the shows for a visit, and to our new guests who booked at the shows. We look forward to having you join the “family” and are excited about having you experience our camp and the great fishing we enjoy on Wabaskang Lake. We have a local show here in South Bend, In coming up over Super Bowl weekend and then a trip to Rockford, Il and Minneapolis, Mn yet this month. If you are a local, and can make it out to the show at the Century Center in South Bend, please do so and try to revive what used to be the old boat show. Our good friends at the Michiana Walleye Association have worked hard in developing this “new” show and we think it will be a hit.

Still no ice fishing for me yet this winter as I got home from the show circuit and promptly managed to catch the mother of all head colds. Guess I should feel fortunate at least it’s not the flu, but sure has made life miserable anyway. With some luck, may still find my way onto the ice before seasons end.

I was fortunate enough to get in some fall deer hunting and take a 6 pt. buck the second day of the season. Unfortunately, our fall Lake Michigan fishing, was a “non-event” as several days of extremely high winds pretty much destroyed any near shore fishing opportunities for the entire season.

In Perrault Falls, we hear that the area is receiving some much needed snow which should help maintain our spring lake levels some. Speaking of lake water levels, I did talk to some guys at one of the shows, (don’t remember which one), who were telling me that they heard that Wabaskang became very hard to navigate when the water is low. Not sure where this MYTH came from, all I know is we operate a 21′ transport boat with a 150 h.p. Yamaha all season long and 95% of the time can do so at full throttle across the 12 miles out to camp. Doesn’t sound too tough to navigate to me!

Only 16 short weeks until opening day 2013! See you in camp soon!

Peffley's Wilderness Camp is a family owned and operated camp. Dave has been fishing Wabaskang Lake for over 25 years and was previously a guest of this camp for 12 years prior to purchasing the camp in 2005. I am a proud supporter of our military and offer a nice discount during the month of July to our guests who have also served. I have three daughters ranging in ages from 16-21 who spend much of their summer with us in camp and have totally embraced the wilderness experience we offer. They have for years referred to it as the "best summer experience ever".

While rarely necessary on our lake, because I do have a very good working knowledge on how and where to fish on Wabaskang Lake and our portage waters, I will guide groups if asked to. Otherwise, I am always happy to share information with our guests and provide them well marked lake maps so they can start catching fish their first day in camp.

I pride myself on running a very clean and well managed camp with your satisfaction our top priority. Many guests who have fished from this camp for over 20 years, and several more that have fished here for over 30 years and even some over 40 years.
