|Two Jigs & A Rap Fishing Team
September 1987 - Upper Rideau Lake & Bob's Lake
|This was the Teams first big trip away from home together. We rented a
couple of cabins with the Squire family and stayed on Upper Rideau Lake in
the town of Westport, Ontario. After fishing the lake a few days and not
catching very many fish we knew we had to make a change.
We went out for a drive to discover some of Ontario and started looking for
another lake that we could tow the boat to and hopefully have some better
success fishing. We somehow stumbled on Bob's Lake and a boat ramp at
Cedar Haven Cottages.
We came back with the boat the next morning, spent the day exploring the
lake, catching lots of fish, and just having a great time!
This was the beginning of many years to come for the Two Jigs & A Rap
Fishing Team's fishing adventures together.

was to pass through the farm gates.
