Dear Christine and David,
I just wanted to again tell you how much fun we had at Goldie Lake Outpost. The fishing was phenomenal; it got to a point where sore forearms and aching backs became the day's fishing testament. We boated approximately fifty pike that where over 30 inches in the five days of fishing. Our largest was 35, followed by a 34.5, two 34s, 33.5, and many 32 and 3 I s
Smallmouth bass became a real treat, especially on light tackle. I cannot even come close to telling you how many two-three pound bass we caught, but it was A LOT. Our largest of the trip was 18.5 inches, followed by numerous 18s, and 17.5s. We estimate that as a group we landed more than 500 fish (pike/bass) in five days.
The real surprise was on our last night, WHITE FISH. Paul was trying some vertical jigging in about 70 feet of water, when he hit a school of them. Within an hour, he had enough for a great evening fish fry.
I am glad to tell you that we practiced catch and release for all fish accept the white fish and three pike that could not be revived after being landed. Our group believes that it is important to maintain a strong fishery, so that all may appreciate it in the future.
We are looking forward to see you next August, and hope that you can accommodate eight people at the outpost next year. Due to some work conflicts, and family obligations, two members of our fishing party could not make it this year. But, they are regretting it now and are chomping and the bit to go to Goldie Lake Outpost.
I have included a CD with our pictures from the fishing trip. Please feel free to use them. We would be honored.
Thanks again for a great trip. Have a safe and happy winter.
Scott, Mike, Paul, Rick, Darrin, and Steve
