Back From the Boreal Forest of the Hudson Bay Watershed

While I’m adjusting back to civilization, or at least my version of it, I am posting these photos from my recent trip to the boreal forest region of Quebec.  As many readers know I go every year.  This year was not a disappointment, in fact it was spectacular!  I will write a couple of stories/articles about this soon!

Best walleye of the week, and an all time personal best for me, seven pounds twelve ounces!

More later with verse!

    That walleye is great, my best is 61/2 lbs. It is the only fish I really like to eat other than trout.What a beautiful area, I need to get up there again.

     Yes, the north of Canada is wonderful, Labrador, New Foundland, Quebec, Ontario, Alberta, Saskatchewan, or BC-take your pick- once you find the boreal forest life is good. 

    Walleye is my all time favorite fresh water fish.  Nothing is better.  Now I’m shooting for a ten pounder!

     There are many more photos to come with my next post that I am presently thinking about, soon to be written.  I was very happy the whole week but especially happy after catching a personal best walleye!

     Happy can hardly begin to describe what I feel in the far north.  It is kind of like I was meant to be there.  Wilderness, wilderness, and more wilderness.  What could be better!

    Congrats on the walleye. I trust you know to eat the cheeks, too.  Yummy.

     Yep on the cheeks as long as its a decent size walleye and yes, yummy! 
    We had some delicious fried walleye last week and also a terrific pike
    recipe cooked with sage and garlic butter!

     My favorite part of the world that I have visited.  There is nothing like wilderness and wilderness with abundant lakes is nearly beyond description.
