Bondi Resort Blog

Come on into our Blog for a look at the wonderful world we've got to share! With over 240 hectares (600 acres) of wilderness woodlands surrounding the resort, just ten minutes from Algonquin Park, we feature over 400 metres (1200’) of waterfront and beach; boat rentals; summer hiking trails winding through fields and woods; 20 km. of groomed cross country ski trails and snowshoeing in winter; access to nearby snowmobile trails for sledders, and a toboggan hill for the young at heart.

Trout for Dinner

Vic finally managed to sneak some time away... arriving with his fishing boat on Wednesday.

Thursday, early, he headed off down Lake of Bays in search of the wily trout.  Now, to hear David and Mike, they of the WallEye Fishing Consortium, there are no fish in this lake.  Vic begs to differ.  He, with extensive fishing experience, points out that this is one of the underfished lakes, that there are plenty of fish in the deep blue lake, but that doesn't always translate to ease of capture.  This lake is rich in bait fish, and the smelt run has just finished.  The trout are well fed, and down deep.  Vic reckons it takes about four hours of fishing to get results.  Dave and Mike are of the Fishing School of Thought that if the line has been in the water for 20 minutes, the fish have HAD their chance!!!

Patience is the key ingredient. Vic has that.

He came back with two lovely lake trout.  Much to the puppy's delight. Taffy had never met a fish, up close and personal, and she was very eager to assist in any way possible.

Encouraged by proof of fish, Dave and Mike headed out today to hunt and gather.  For the boys, it was steak on the bbq, again... but Vic has headed home for a true fish feast!
