Well the fish in the lake are safe once again.  Ned and Ginny left yesterday and packed the cooler with the keepers that Mike didn't cook while they were here.  Ned even took the family from France out one evening so they could experience landing a couple nice wild fish from Aziscohos Lake.

Thomas, Jamie and our grandkids, Loralie & John Robert arrived on Saturday so we are trying to fit in as much family time as possible with this many guests in camp.

We did have rain yesterday and additional rainfall overnight into the morning.  It did clear by mid-morning to reveal a beautiful day with slightly cooler temps.  Good thing, because if we'd had another scorcher, Mike was headed way north!

Mike wants me to tell you that I'm finally warm with the heat we have been experiencing over the past few days, but actually 85 degrees is comfortable for me.  The lake has seen a lot of swimming action and I think one of the little girls here has started to develop gills as she has been in the water so much.

Ned, was out early this morning and again returned with another nice fish. The dock did not disappoint last night either.  Two nice salmon, a few missed opportunities and some chubs were hauled in by those who  paid attention to Mike's instruction. I think they are becoming believers in that a nice fish can be taken right off the dock.

John is actually here relaxing with his wife.  No hammer in his hand this trip.  They enjoyed a boat ride last evening after diner and John managed to catch a nice salmon.  I think he was just trying to impress his wife?

Shannon had the early shift today and saw two moose and nice buck on her drive in.  Much better than dealing with rush hour traffic don't you think?

Just as the summer weather kicks in, we are in full stride with families vacationing here at Bosebuck Mountain Camps.  The cabins are full including a family that has travelled all the way from France to enjoy the Maine wilderness.

Ned is out every morning before breakfast and then in the evening after dinner trying his luck at pulling in a keeper for breakfast.  He got the job done yesterday so he and Ginny enjoyed a nice fresh salmon with their eggs this morning.

The warm weather has slowed the fishing down a bit, but if you can manage to sink a line without catching the bottom, you may find success!  The dock if full of little fishermen all trying to catch that big one!  We'll see how the competition shakes out.

Mike went off yesterday to check on some areas he has been meaning to investigate for some time now.  He asked me to pass along to anyone interested, that the new dam at Boundary Pond is well underway.  He didn't say much about exactly where he traveled, but I could tell from the twinkle in his eye that he definitely found what he was looking for.  I'm guessing another piece of the puzzle for the upcoming hunting season.

The weather has been exceptional the last couple of days.  65 degrees at 12:30 in the afternoon with a slight breeze off the lake.  It's just a bit too cool for me but Mike and the rest of the crew are lovin it.

A father and son, staying in cabin #9 for a few days, took a drive last evening just before dark to scout for wildlife.  They told Mike this morning they must have seen 50 rabbits!  What's going on the in woods?

This winter's firewood has been delivered, so Chad and Mike have their work cut out for them to get it cut, split and stacked in the woodshed before snow flies.

The plans have been drawn so Mike and Jerry are getting ready to build the coyote blinds.  They will be heated and positioned overlooking bait piles.  Give us a call if you would like to give it a try.  Availability will open after deer season closes on December 1st.

I made the mistake of running in to town for shopping yesterday.  What was I thinking, driving on the Friday of a holiday weekend?  I get nervous driving on paved roads now and the traffic, ugh!  Thank goodness gas prices are falling.  Hopefully more families will be able to vacation this summer.

The kids were out on the dock fishing even before breakfast this morning, but their parents managed to drag them into the dining room to eat.  Although we were expecting high temps and full sun today, the sky is overcast with a slight breeze from the north.

Phil has been fishing the river pretty hard all week and seen a lot of action.  A few nice brookies and salmon too.

Mike has started to check on his bear sites since bating will begin at the end of the month.  He and Jerry saw 4 deer, 22 rabbits and 10 grouse (8 of which had broods tagging along) on their rounds yesterday.  We still have a few open slots for bear hunts this fall, so give us a call if you're interested.

Happy Fourth of July

Happy Birthday to the United States of America.  As we celebrate this day, let's keep in mind the real reasons we are celebrating.  Take a moment to think of, and thank those, who have defended our freedoms for some 236 years. 

The fishing seems to be pretty good even though we have slipped into summer.  Brian had a great time on the river last evening while his family enjoyed a boat tour on the lake with Mike.  They saw loons with their chicks, deer feeding at the shore and of course the eaglets that are growing like weeds.

Claire caught another nice salmon off the dock which they all enjoyed for breakfast this morning and because somebody has to saw her Uncle Phil how to fish.

I can't believe it, July 2nd, and 2012 is half over already.  Our summer season has begun and the families have started to arrive.  Our discounted rates for adults and two kids under age 16 FREE certainly helps to stretch the family vacation budget.  These rates will be in effect through August 12th and we still have a few lakefront cabins available.  If you have the time, give me a call to reserve your very own cabin for a few days.

Our guests are continuing to report numerous wildlife sightings, including a moose right here on the back lawn this morning.  Deer, bear, grouse with loads of chicks and rabbits by the dozen now (Hey rabbit hunters, put a trip to Bosebuck on your schedule for early December as conditions are looking terrific).  Don't tell Mike I passed this along, but he told me he has seen a couple of really nice bucks.  He even thinks one of them is the "one that slipped away" from him this past fall.

The eagle chicks are doing just fine.  Mike and I took a quick ride over in the pontoon boat on Saturday afternoon to be sure they had settled back into their usual routine.  They were both standing on the edge of the nest looking pretty fat and happy.  On the way back to camp, I saw a loon with a newborn chick catching a ride on her back.  How cute!
