Website Up-dates

As I have mentioned in previous posts, Big Hook's website recently has undergone a face lift. My brother Ricky and I have been busy over the past several weeks formatting pages and uploading content.  As the winter progresses we hope to keep delivering additional features, so check back often. Please comment at the bottom of this blog on what you think of the new site and/or additional features you would like to see.
Most people will notice new site has an updated appearance, numerous new pages and features that are now accessible.  Visitors will  notice additional links at the bottom of the page to a brief history about the owners Steve and Evelyn, a mission statement, information about the Opasquia Provincial Park and a sitemap.  A couple of new features that I would like to highlight are:
Google Interactive Maps
Utilizing Google's powerful map data base, guests now have the ability to view their favorite Big Hook Wilderness Camp lake.  Google Maps allow users to view each lake in either standard scale or from a satellite imagery.  In addition, these new maps allow users to scroll, zoom and click on points of interest.  Highlighted throughout the maps are icons for fishing hot spots, rock hazards and scenic locations.  Text and pictures accompany each icon for more explanation.  To start browsing Google Interactive Maps visit Big Hooks home page and click on your favorite outpost lake. There you will see a Google Interactive Maps link.
Nathan's Tackle Box
This new section of our website allows guests to peer into Nathan's Tackle Box.  Visitors can now study the hot lures Nathan uses while guiding at Big Hook Wilderness Camps.  New guests should find this section incredibly helpful when preparing for an up and coming Big Hook vacation.  Included in the page are successful walleye, northern, and perch lures, along with photo's and links to the manufacturer's websites.
On a side note, we are at the All-Canada Milwaukee show this week Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  Stop by and pay us a visit.  For you non football fans, I am sure there won't be any lines to contend with on Sunday due to the Packers/Bears game. 

The following is a quote from Going Fishing TV in regards to there fishing tour throughout NW Ontario in 2009. Big Hook was their first stop. 

"The first operation was Steve and Evie Hartle’s Big Hook Wilderness Camp located in a sportsman’s paradise 185 air miles north of Red Lake, Ontario. Situated in the middle of the 1.5 million acre Opasquia Provincial Park, Big Hook Wilderness Camp offers up some of the hottest walleye jigging I’ve experienced. On top of that, the pike just won’t stop biting and surroundings are some of the most spectacular in the country. You can fish right off the dock at the main camp or Steve will fly you in to numerous outpost lakes that offer mind boggling action."

Have a safe winter everyone.
