We're 2 weeks in to the 2017 season and things are running at full speed now. We completed some cabin renovations on Winoga Island prior to opening day, and we continue to finish the inside of the new main lodge.
The cabins are all full of fisherman and bear hunters now. The season is off to a great start with good action on walleye and bears. A real highlight for me this season was fishing on opening day with my wife and our 2 boys. Our little guy just turned 3 and he caught his first 'unassisted' walleye.
In case you missed it, the brand new Winoga Lodge website is now up and running. Have a look, www.winoga.com Check back often as we add new content to the site. You can also follow us on Twitter @WinogaLodge
It's 2 weeks until muskie season opens in NW Ontario and I am counting down the days. I'm sharpening hooks and waiting for my new order of PDeez bucktails to arrive.
Here's a product review of some new Costa Del Mar sunglasses I've been wearing this spring. The "Bloke" frame with blue lenses are prefect for sunny days, while the "Permit" frame with green lenses are ideal for lower light conditions. Both lens's are Costa's 580 Glass and offer the industries best clarity and polarization. I spend so many hours on the water and these products protect my eyes and eliminate eye strain and fatigue.
