Horwood Lake Lodge - Timmins, Ontario, Canada

My son, two grandson and myself headed out on a week fishing trip. We had a great time at the lodge. The Walleye were in the 15" to 17" range with a few over 18".  They grow about half as fast as they do in Ohio, about 3" a year. There were a lot of fish available and you could catch a limit quickly. The lake is beautiful and the lodge is great as a fishing lodge. You can get a lot of info from the link above. Get the meal plan, you won't be disappointed with any meals. We still had a fish fry most every night and the boys loved it.

We had a great time and saw a lot of nature. I had never captured the Common Loon and I got a lot of chances to photograph them. This one showed off for me.
There was one morning when the grandsons were the only ones who caught fish. They got some nice walleye and Matt caught the biggest, a 18.75" Walleye.
Mike caught a nice walleye one of the mornings when the two of us were out.
There were some superb sunrises and I was out most every morning even if the boys slept in.
 Matt and I went on a special trip to Longfellow Lake for Northern Pike.
I caught a nice Walleye 

and Northern Pike.
There was a forest fire and the road out was in danger.
We got to see the water bombers hit the lake to fight the fire. There were 4 planes the first day getting water.
We spent one day at Old Woman Falls and had a great day.
It was a fun trip with many memories made.

These nature shots are spectacular.
It looks like you and the Grands had a great time fishing. These are experiences neither of you will forget. (Fish fry sounds yummmmy!)
That loon is certainly putting on a show, and what a great photo you have of him doing so!
Amazing photo of the water plane!!
I've never seen one close up before, and for you to be there with your camera is wonderful.
I'm so glad that your trip was fun. Continued best wishes for a happy summer for you and yours.
Hugs and smiles,
