Shore Lunch

To truly appreciate the complete Canadian wilderness experience, one must take time to savor and enjoy a shore lunch.  Fortunately, Lake Wabatongushi is a relatively easy lake to fish.  It doesn't take long to catch enough fish for a shore lunch.  For our shore lunches, we had several fillets each of walleye, perch and northern pike.  If you have never eaten northern pike before, be sure to try some.  While they certainly do not look like it, Northern pike are delicious to eat and my personal favorite.


Perch, pike and walleye for shore lunches

One of my husband's favorite things about the shore lunch (aside from the eating) is not having to do anything except catch the fish.  The staff at Errington's cleans the fish, makes the roaring fire, sets the table, prepares all the food, and cleans up afterwards.  All we had to do was show up at a secluded island at high noon with a hardy appetite.



Chef Frankie hard at work

Frankie cooked the fish and all the fixings to absolute perfection.  There is nothing like watching a meal being prepared over an open fire in the great Canadian wilderness.  It is a part of the true Canadian experience that should not be missed!



Perch, pike and walleye - yum, yum!

Another Fantastic Trip

What a fantastic time my husband, George, and I had at Errington's this past June.  The fishing was excellent and the wildlife put on a fabulous display for us.  Thank you to Al, Doris and all the wonderful staff at Errington's for making our trip so perfect!  A special thank you to Bobbi for identifying many of the plants I photographed.  And a very special thank you to Frankie for all the help he provided me on the computer.  George and I can hardly wait until we return in September!
