It’s About The fishing

When I think Canadian fishing, I think Black Bear Camp at Nestor Falls. Listen, some people think you have to drive 10 hours north into Canada to get into good fishing. Wrong! Black Bear Camp is located on one of the most beautiful clear water lakes (Crow Lake) I have ever seen. I love the Lake Trout fishing and that’s why I go but believe me it’s all available. Just scan through the pictures people. And you know what, that 59 inch Muskie we released over on White Fish Bay last year is still there. That’s the nice thing about staying at Black Bear. Looking for a change of pace on a particular day or the wind is just out of the wrong direction for Crow, then you can just hop over to White fish Bay or Stevens Bay on Lake of the Woods.
