Your hosts, Dwayne and Terry, are both life long residents of the Thunder Bay area. Dwayne grew up hunting, fishing, and trapping in the area for a variety of fish and game.
Dwayne has been flying airplanes since 1985 and throughout his career has had experience flying several different bush planes for various local outfitters and has also served as captain for Bearskin Airlines. Dwayne has been a police officer since 1992 and is posted to an airborne unit, flying a Pilatus PC12. During the winter months Dwayne enjoys maintaining his two trap lines. During the summer and autumn seasons Dwayne loves to indulge his passions for hunting and fishing, the perfect fit with life as an outpost camp operator. Dwayne is well known as an avid moose hunter, both with a bow and a rifle and has four record kills to his name with the largest having a 62 1/2 inch spread and scoring 203 7/8, the others scored 190 4/8, 177 7/8, and 174 5/8 respectively. All of these trophy moose were taken in the area that Thousand Lakes Outposts now runs the moose hunting camps. Look for the pictures in the album.
Terry completed her BSC honors in Anthropology with a minor in forensics and DNA. Soon after graduation, Terry was employed as a 911 call taker and dispatcher, and continues with that today. Terry's hobbies include a variety of crafts, glass bead making, glass fusion, stained glass, jewelry making, carving, scrap booking, doll making, knitting, ceramics, and many others.
Terry and Dwayne have taken their kids on fly-in fishing trips and know what is expected and what makes a trip frustrating. Although both have full time jobs, due to the shift work, they effectively only work 6 months a year. Both have a solid commitment to the outposts and work tirelessly to ensure the camps are in top condition and the details of your trip are taken care of. They are hard working, honest people that will make your vacation one to remember.
Fishing @ Thousand Lakes Outposts
Thousand Lakes Outposts camps are located in the vast and rugged Boreal Forest area of Northwestern Ontario, an area well known for the thousands of pristine lakes dotting the landscape filled with walleye and northern pike. The area also provides the perfect habitat to sustain high numbers of moose, providing hunters with excellent opportunities to bag the trophy of their dreams.
We are located in Thunder Bay, Ontario, but all of our flying is done from Wabagimi Air near Armstrong, about a two and a half hour drive north of Thnunder Bay. The road is paved all the way and is a very scenic drive with lots of wildlife on the way.
There are a couple of options for you in regards to obtaining your fishing license. You may choose to wait until after you've crossed the border into Canada, or you can go to the Ministry of Natural Resources website to get your outdoors card and license online or you can call their toll free telephone number. We recommend the 8 day conservation license, it's half the price and still allows you to catch and keep 2 fish of each species, and catch and release as many fish as you like.

Individual Unit Description
Kearns and Stonehouse camps have ultra delux cabins that offer separate sleeping quarters, pine walls, oak laminate flooring, indoor flush toilet, shower, hot and cold running water, propane fridge and freezer, FTA television with DVD player, and solar lights with generator back up. Outside the patio door at Kearn's you'll find a large deck equipped with a BBQ and propane fish fryer. A short distance from the cabin is a fully enclosed fish house equipped with lights and running water that allows you to clean the day's catch outside without being bothered by pesky flies. Newer boats with 9.9 mercury motors give you the power you need to get out on the lake to find those honey holes so you can keep those fishing biting on your line.
Kearns is a camp that sleeps 12, so if your party is 4 people or less, you may choose to stay at Stonehouse. Stonehouse is a very cozy cedar log cabin located on a small secluded lake where the wind and waves aren't a concern. Great for smaller groups, Stonehouse would make the perfect private getaway for those newlyweds who choose to fish on their honeymoon! It is equipped with 2 boats and motors for your use or you can chose to take the 10 minute walk over to Kearns lake to fish there.
