Welcome back to the final part of our trip to the mainland of Canada in August.The fishing wasn't as good as it could be so we decided to head home before Low Tide trapped us in the fjord for a few hours. You can see a circled area in the photograph below this paragraph. That is the gap you see above. It has narrowed down significantly and the boat was scraping on the rocky bottom as our driver rode through it.

I also added a couple of shots of the family who brought us up here. Their grandfather showed up as we were getting ready to leave so we took a half hour to do some more fishing. With a gun.

And you thought it was annoying when kids throw rocks while you fish!

All in, it was a great trip! By the end of it I was shivering from the cold of being on the arctic ocean, even mid-August. We wore ski pants, and thick jackets to try and stave it off, but alas, that wet wind bites through fabric as if it's not there.

Thanks for sticking through this long adventure!

To help promote @lensy and the Lensy.io NFT Photography site I will be giving away 2 photographs to REAL people who leave comments below this post. I will try to exclude the bots, which should be fairly easy as they stand out like a sore thumb that's been whacked with a hammer all day. The photographs are not necessarily from this blog and will be given out randomly.

All you need to do to be eligible to receive the NFT's as Prizes is leave a comment. Let's #ENGAGE each other. Tell me what you like about the photo or what you think of NFT Photographs. Personally, I think they will be EXTREMELY versatile in the months and years to come. No crediting artists, no slogging through stock photo sites. Just buy the product you want to use with crypto and use it any way you want.

Well. That's impressive. I'm still amazed at the amount of change in the water level with the tides in some places. I'm a river rat and easily amazed.

The old guy with the gun is funny, sort of. That's fishing frustration at it's finest :) I have seen fishing done with a DuPont spinner and have shot some spawning carp in my day, but I've never tried a gun for gamefish.

That looks cold. Our average August high temp was probably 45C or better. Some difference between...

Oh dear lord! FOURTY FIVE!? Hahaha that's crazy! Up here the average july temperatures (our warmest month) is 12 degrees celcius. It hit +26 one day this year hehe.

Yeah, the old guy said "Fishing with a rod is boring."

I'm sure we average 12C in December (our coldest month). There has only been snow on the ground once here in the last 300 years, and we go years between frosts. Had one last year, should be good for a while.

Nice piece of water even though super cold, crazy old man given up on fishing, shoot it that's a new one, hope you got something!

I cannot imagine how cold your waters get, thanks for taking us on the trip.

At first I thought he was trying to shoot his daughter's lures as she would cast right where he would shoot, but he was legit trying to shoot the fish haha. "Fishing with a rod is boring"

Good for him, far away from everything why not shoot the damn thing....
