Thunder Bay

Thunder Bay’s Loaves and Fishes Tour

WE EMBARK FROM Thunder Bay’s marina at daybreak, the sun rising behind the Sleeping Giant’s silhouette, waves chopping and wind nipping. A few kilometres out, we plunge our lures into a sloshing Lake Superior and cast random musings at one another, waiting for a rod to quiver. Our captain keeps cracking jokes about the dubious shapes on the sonic fish finder: “Seaweed!” he barks, then, “Bicycle!” or, “Probably a cooler that went overboard.” Eventually, the fish start biting, and later we’ll putter into shore with a rainbow trout and a pair of lake trout.
