Our First Blog Entry!

Hello from Wayne and Karla Clark!

Welcome to the Clark's Blog! We are so glad that you stopped by. This is going to be the first of many blog entries. There is so much going on at all of the camps and outposts cabins and we'd like to keep you updated! Between ongoing construction and updating to the cabins, hunting, the weather, minnow trapping, and of course the fishing - there is always lots to report and this is a good way to share with everyone.

I, Meagan Stansfield, will be writing for the Clark's blog. For those of you who don't know me, or don't recognize me because of my last name, I am Wayne and Karla's daughter. I married my wonderful husband, Devin last summer in August. We got married at K.C.'s Landing Resort. My Dad and I flew into the ceremony in his airplane. The ceremony was held on a dock on the water and the reception in a tent. The camps, the flying, and the outdoors will always be a huge part of my life.

I work in Dryden at a financial services company, but I love to keep in the loop of what's going on at the camps. I have been helping my parents out with the social media side of the business. I'm going to be taking care of their Blogging, Facebook, Twitter, and things like that. This is my first time writing a blog, so please bare with me as we get started!

You may think things are "winding down" at the camps, which in some ways they are, but musky fishing is extremely exciting and popular this time of year. While there aren't any guests flying to the outpost cabins anymore, there are still are a few brave fisherman that are hitting the lakes on these frosty mornings in search for those trophy muskies. Staying at Northern Lights Resort and K.C.'s Landing, there are musky fisherman on both Cedar Lake and on the Indian Lake Chain. One major perk that we like to remind people of is that when staying at any of the resorts or when flying to the outpost cabins, the bait is included with your trip! The musky fisherman at camp right now are using large suckers to entice those monsters to the boat.

The leaves are falling, the temperature is dropping, and we just celebrated "Canadian" Thanksgiving this past weekend! It is hard to believe how fast the summer went and how fast this fall is already passing us by. All in all, it was a great season. The camps were busy and we had lots of guests at the fly-in cabins. Fishing was amazing at both the outpost cabins and on Cedar Lake and the Indian Lake Chain. It was the first year with all of the outposts, but it went very smoothly and the guests were all very happy with their adventures.

The guys (Wayne, Chris, Nick, and a few others) have been up at the outpost cabins pretty well everyday lately. They are doing lots of updates at Grace, McVicar, and of course Kapkik! Kapkik is the outpost cabin that burnt down before my parents bought it. They couldn't wait to build a new cabin there as this lake is VERY popular. Starting this summer, my parents hired airplanes to fly in load after load of material and in only a few short months, they've got a beautiful cabin well on its way!

I have been putting up pictures of the progress on our Facebook page so be sure to check it out. It really is incredible how fast these guys work. As of right now, the dock is built, the walkways are done, and the entire outside of the cabin is complete. The windows and doors are in and the roof is on and next on the agenda is to build the fish house and outhouse and then to finish off the interior of the cabin. This cabin is going to be gorgeous and BIG and the landscape is really incredible for those who like to explore. The fishing on that lake has always been incredible, but as you can imagine, since the lake has had a bit of a break since the fire, the walleyes will be jumping in the boat next summer!

Now you have an idea of what is going on right now. We will keep you posted!

Thank you so much for dropping in. Hope to see you again real soon!

Until next time,
