Looking for guidance and tips as I plan to tick some items off my bucket list this summer. I've driven the Saskatchewan/Ottawa trek a dozen times since 1988, but never had the opportunity to stop, fish and enjoy the scenery (every time I drove, I promised myself I'd be back). Well that time has come. I'm taking 7 weeks off work, leaving Saskatchewan August long weekend with my boat hitched to the truck, returning 3rd week in September.
With the help of Google Earth and the web, I've come up with a tentative schedule. Trip being split in 3 segments: 1. Two weeks from Saskatchewan to Ottawa. 2. Two weeks in the Ottawa valley area and 3. Three weeks return to Saskatchewan. Musts stops along the way and back, LOTW, lake Superior and Georgian Bay (so yes, will be using Hwy 17). If there are must fish gems out there, I have no problem driving an hour off the TransCanada to reach the destination (when you live in Saskatchewan, driving long distances is the norm) . My only limitation is I need a decent boat launch to put my boat in the water.
My goal is landing a trophy musky, a long nose gar and see how many other species I can bring into the boat in that time period.
I'm open to all suggestions. I thank you all.
