Whitefish Bay Camp Photos as Featured in David Carr Post

On Friday, July 20th, we featured a letter on our blog from David Carr, who was selected as the fishing adventure winner at the Minneapolis All-Canada Show. David shared several of the photographs from the family's trip to Lake-of-the-Woods, sponsored by Peg & Bob Hunger, owners of Whitefish Bay Camp.

We've had a couple requests for photographs; Bob & Peg have shared photographs of Cottage 1, what the Carr family called home during their Canadian vacation.

Whitefish Bay Camp is located in the heart of Lake-Of-The-Woods in Ontario, a short 75 mile drive from the USA/Canadian border. In addition to fishing for Musky, Northern Pike, Lake Trout, Bass, Walleye, Whitefish and Crappie, the Hunger's offer hunting for Whitetail Deer, Black Bear, Moose and Duck in semi-remote (access by boat) wilderness setting.

The Hunger's maintain a blog and web site and also publish a newsletter, which you can subscribe to on their website. If you like what you see,  contact the Hunger's by telephone at 877-226-1211 or via email.

All Canada Fishing Trip Awarded at Minneapolis 2012 All Canada Show

David Carr, winner of the All Canada Show fishing trip, sent the following letter of appreciation and photographs. A very special thank you to Bob and Peg Hunger of Whitefish Bay Camp for the donation of the trip.

Our family was very impressed with Whitefish Bay Camp. Our trip was taken from June 25 through June 30, 2012. The accommodations were excellent. The owners could not have been nicer and more accommodataing. The staff was friendly and very helpful.

We were met at the dock every time we came in from fishing to help us land the boat and check to see if we needed anything.

The cabin had everything we needed. The refrigerator was clean, large and included a freezer section. The living room had a couch and a number of recliners. The bedrooms were large with closets and the beds were comfortable. Everything was very clean and well maintained.

The meals were excellent and included stir-gry, chicken, ham and scalloped potatoes, and lasagna. The breakfasts and lunches were also delicious.

The fishing was excellent! We caught a lot of fish so our 6- and 10-year old did not have a chance to get bored. Even when we fished in the afternoon, we were busy landing and unhooking fish so the children had a wonderful time.

Also we did not have to motor very far to arrive at a good fishing location. We managed to land a 29-inch Walleye and a 32-inch Northern. There was a nice sand beach nearby so one afternoon we went swimming.

We were able to see beavers, deer, a snowshoe rabbit, eagles, loons and pelicans in their natural environment which was a pleasant change from seeing them in a zoo.

We had a really, really, really enjoyable visit and are planning to return next year.
