Sorry for the delay in updates but things have been rather busy here at Long Lake. After winding up our spring bear season, we jumped right into some spectacular New Brunswick Lake Trout fishing. Vertical jigging and deep water trolling proved to be “the ticket” recently as water temperatures warmed up in mid-June. In one 7 day period near the end of June we boated Lakers with the smallest weighing in at 5 ½ pounds and the largest tipping the scales at 19 ½ pounds. Of the 33 boated ONLY 4 left the lake! Hook and release at it’s finest! In addition to the Lakers, we have found the shoreline to be productive for Landlocked Salmon.
On June 25th we hosted our first ever” Guided ATV excursion” 14 couples plus Tanya & I enjoyed 2 days exploring Acadian Timber’s picturesque property, eating fine food and sharing great company!! An AWESOME trip!
On July 5th we wrapped up another great experience….We have been shooting an episode of Fishing With Friends with host Steve Clapperton and Danny Harvie on camera. Lots of fish were caught and released, stories shared and laughs were unlimited. Thanks a lot guys for including us in next season! “Right On!”. This show airs on Eastlink cable in Nova Scotia and PEI – we will posting a copy to our Youtube channel after the show broadcasts for all our friends here in New Brunswick and elsewhere.
We will be featuring a Family Fun Package for the month of August. This is a 3 day, 2 night adventure for you to customize as you please. It includes lodging, 1 boat, a private beach, fishing at your leisure and all the relaxation you can stand. $650.00 (based on a family of 5 or less). Come and enjoy a New Brunswick family vacation in the wilderness with us at Long Lake Adventures!
Monster New Brunswick Black Bear June 2014.
NB Bear 2014
We ended the last week of our New Brunswick spring bear hunting season a couple of weeks ago capping off a great spring 2014!
Our guests here at Long Lake Adventures took several large black bears this spring upwards of 300 pounds with a bear about twice that size taken by a member of the last group of hunters we had in camp.
We left our trail cameras out on some of our bait sites after the last group all got their bears and still had several bears visiting the baits. We’ll be updating our hunting gallery within the next few days with pics of all of our lucky spring bear hunters. For more info on both spring and fall bear hunting be sure to visit our New Brunswick bear hunting page.
Mud Lake landlocked salmon June 5
2 fine lakers from last weekend
Last week was a busy week for us with bear hunters and most of our camps were occupied by hunters and their family and friends. The fishing groups we had experienced good fishing early in the week however a cold front passed over northern New Brunswick that was followed by a couple of days of unsettled weather mid-week and this seemed to slow the bite down.
Nice Landlocked Salmon from Long Lake
Fishing started to pick up again Thursday evening into Friday on Long Lake and over the weekend our guests caught some large fish. The weather forecast for the coming few days sounds favourable and we expect good fishing to continue throughout the week.
Our second group of spring bear hunters had a great week with four of our six hunters taking fine New Brunswick black bears over 300 pounds and all of our hunters had opportunities to fill their tags. We continue to expand our network of bait locations throughout the season and have numerous trail cameras deployed to keep our hunters on active bait sites.
