Andrew’s visit to Great Bear was full of fresh air, scenery, and big, beautiful fish.
Andrew and his wife had honeymooned in Costa Rica a few months earlier: “I’m pretty sure she enjoyed herself more in the Arctic than on the beaches.”
Plummer’s Lodge on Great Bear “was full of fascinating people from all walks of life.”
Andrew’s wife holds one of Great Bear Lake’s many, massive inhabitants. In 1995, the world record lake trout caught with a rod and reel (32.8 kg) was taken on the lake.

Andrew’s float plane awaits, ready to take him on another adventure over the lake’s strikingly clear waters.
Catch (and release) of the day.
