The trip is under way, and we’re paddling the length of the long and remote Lac Fonteneau, the headwater of the East Natashquan River. In this video, I go over ways to stay out of big waves, and the dangers of paddling in whitecaps. Tori and I also catch some nice Pike and I show you the three-way-swivel rig I use to catch them. Before crossing the Labrador border, we see a moose and then make camp at the end of the lake. The bugs are bad in camp, and I share some tips for dealing with them as I clean fish and cook dinner.
breakfast Morning day to lock Fonteno freaking beautiful lake Winds have picked up significantly. We have about 22 K two paddles the [outlet] of the natash quan We should be able to stay over the big waves because of the shape of the leg, but I lake this big and get sketchy Hey look managed to find a little spot out of the room here. Yeah What did you say about the camera [ok]? [ok] so [tori] didn't want to play ball this morning. So I'm doing the interview [Couture] You can paddle up there there seems to be calm water behind the points That are out of the wind and also the lake seems to naturally curve in right Direction So hopefully when we're around this big bend up here. We will be out of the way I'm down a bit Don't think we do not Okay, so [whitecaps] should you find yourself? In the middle of a breaking wave what happens is that just like in a fool and rap at that aerated water That's bubbling on the top [of] the breaking white hat just can't float your boat So you your boat just kind of sinks in it, but yet? There's still enough water in the air bubbles to just completely fill your boat up, but it looks like luckily We are out of those big waves for now anyways, and we still have a small tailwind And I'm just loving this lake surrounded by mountains Natural beaches moose prints on every Beach we have a team won yet But we will soon just a real masterpiece of Northern quebec Shit this time of year the larger pike retreat to deeper waters if you [wanted] [to] hook into a leviathan you got to go deeper There's a lesson for you. Don't have your freaking neck jammed under a bunch of stuff nothing huge but Using a smaller size spoon here because it goes deeper with my triple swivel rake great little lure there. That's a Williams [Ridgeback] Hey What the hell [are] you doing see the rule is you're not allowed to look in the bag So you look at this no looking eyes right on the count Mmm.
