     From what I have read and learned by being there, is that it takes 10 years for a lake trout to reach about 1.8 lbs. Therefore, you can imagine how old these 40 pounders are. This slow rate of growth is due to the extreme cold temperatures of the lake.

     It was very late one evening in February following our July trip to Great Bear Lake when we heard a knock on the door. Much to my surprise, it was Ernie, who happened to stop by to present me with the Lake Whitefish which he had mounted in Texas for me. This was very special considering he drives over 10,000 miles during the off season to promote his lodge at various sportsman shows. Ernie's home is in Alberta, Canada. Thank you Ernie for a vacation that I will never forget.

     At this time I would like to thank each and every person for sharing my story. Once again, It looks like winter in the Arctic is about to bear down. Good Bye!
