By Conner - I had so much fun in Canada! I used the lime green Dardevle. I caught two northern Pike on it. Then I lost it because a fish snapped my line. I got a trophy perch with my orange Dardevle but it got off, me and my brother lost two 49 cent lures, but they caught all the fish. We were trolling for trout when we lost them.
There was a dog named Cooper in camp. He would sit at our doorstep when he smelled food. When I threw a rock out in the water he would bring it up with his paws closer to shore so he could pick it up with his mouth and bring it back to shore and bury it.
We explored an island with a cliff. We walked a half mile on a four wheeler trail to get to the top of the rocks. Cooper came with us. Me and my brother slid down an eight foot drop. Then we climbed a five foot slope. Then my family and I ran back through the rain! We saw a moose on the way back to our truck on the last day.
It was awesome fishing in Canada!

Steve VanDyke of Dallas recently sent us some photos from the Canadian fishing trip he won to Dogskin Lake Lodge in Manitoba. Here is a picture of Steve with a walleye and Ashley from Dogskin Lake Lodge cooking shorelunch for guests.
Steve has this to say about his trip: "Dad and I had a wonderful time. We were impressed with Dogskin's facilities, operation and how their team catered to all our needs. The scenery around the lake is gorgeous. We enjoyed boating around the lake almost as much as catching fish. The food was plentiful and delicious. Chef Wayne with his wonderful breakfasts and dinners and Ashley and Britany with their shore lunches successfully put 10 lbs on me. While we caught lots of fish, including a 30" northern, the master level fish eluded us. We know they are there, as one of them tried to eat my 15" walleye while I was reeling it in. We hope to return again and chase him down!"
The All-Canada Show is glad you had a great trip Steve and thanks to Dogskin Lake Lodge for partnering with us!
