Slippery Winds’ 2023 Season
We had a fairly busy 2023 season, right from the walleye opener, the third Saturday in May through the last week of July, when we closed for the season. Slippery Winds Wilderness Lodge’s catch-and-release practices continue to provide our guests with exceptional multi-species fishing on our six lakes. Guests reported catching trophy-quality fish of all six sport fish species this season.
This past season we continued to make improvements to our facilities. Two projects which were accomplished in 2023 were the construction of an addition to the “boathouse”, to house a new laundry facility; and the installation of a new steel roof on cabin #1.
We also purchased a 20-foot pontoon boat, to use as a barge to transport fuel and supplies from the Straw Lake boat landing across Straw Lake to the lodge.
Our satellite internet provider was switched to Elon Musk’s StarLink system this season. We were very pleased with the performance of the StarLink system, as it provided much higher upload and download speeds than the old system. With Bell Canada eliminating our radio telephone service, the StarLink system allowed us to use internet VOIP phone to replace the old radio telephone service.
More improvements are planned for 2024, including the installation of a new steel roof on the main lodge, and some additional renovations to the guest cabins. A couple of new boats for Straw Lake are also on our wish list for 2024.
Wishing you tight lines and fair winds!
