All we can say is “WOW”! This is unquestionably the BEST start to an ice fishing season that we have ever seen!. The WESTVIEW LODGE is scheduled to re-open on January 25th so ice fishermen venturing into the Eastern Basin of Lake Ontario will have the PERFECT place to stay while they are fishing on the weekends. Right now the BSO and Hardwater Ice Guides are plying the waters of Chaumont Bay, 3 Mile
January, February and March are the prime booking months for both hunting and fishing! These are the months when the majority of the industry’s Sports Shows take place. This is also the time when customers are vying for position in the booking calendar. Now is the time to get the jump on the rest of the market. Our calendars are already built with repeat clients and we can immediately look for the best dates. Here are some highlights and some ideas that we suggest for 2019′
Ice Fishing is starting within the next couple of weeks. Early reports have limited ice forming on sheltered regions of the St. Lawrence River and Black Lake. The team at BSO specializes in Yellow Perch
Every season, we get hammered with calls during the peak of the season! Customers call when the mood strikes them and want a trip immediately……Unfortunately, we are attending to our regular customers at this time and when we don’t respond promptly it appears that we are not interested in the business. This could not be further from the truth but there is only so much that can be done in a single day! It is our “ULTIMATE GOAL” to take care of everyone and make sure that all are served well! This BLOG is a request that you call EARLY for your bookings this season! We dedicate the months of January, February and March to handling customers and their questions. We are in the office every day and it is the BEST time to speak with us about any concerns that you might have!
