Took my shack to East Grand two weeks ago. Fishing has been hit or miss but a few decent ones. A little sporty some mornings at 3 to 5 degrees and blowing a gale. Good grub and a good cook. Fried halibut, smashed taters with onions and corn.

It works great for us. 4 seasons camp. Use it deer/moose hunting and ice fishing. As well as a guest house. 8X16 all aluminum.

Fantastic! What part of the lake were you fishing? I was down there a couple weeks back and we caught a couple decent brookies and a 26" laker. We were on Dark Cove. You have a 1st class setup there...chef and everything. Nice.

I come in from Greenland cove launch. Its only 64 miles from my home on Cathance Lake. The laker I got was 28" and 8.45 lb. I let it go. I am loaded up with fish, shrimp and scallops. Two of my buddies came down to fish with me on sunday but I got a call on saterday to help a friend get his 4 wheeler out of the lake we live on. They still fished. Came in from Butterfeild landing and fished east of the deep hole. They landed 5 lakers total from 8.5-11 lbs.

grin but yes most do call them togue. Anyone that says they taste like mud or are to greesey just plain dont like fish. Lakers are as good or better then most other fresh water fish.

By the way. After reading the quote at the bottom of your page, do you think we are all living on our knees now in the US?

The shack works great for deer and moose hunting as well. Me and the wife had 4 any deer tags for Vinellhaven Island last fall. Took the shack out for a few weeks and shot our deer. Took it to Jackman a few times moose hunting.

Very nice fish, set up, and food. Looks like lots of fun.

Halibut should be battered and deep fried just until it floats.

In part that's because your fish are eating smelt and whitefish...In portions of the Great Lakes where the lake trout are on alewives, they get a tad oily...I miss East and West Grand...

BTW - Nice fish!
