Moose On

Posted by on Wednesday, September 30, 2009 at 7:44 am

Our fishing parties are officially over for the season. This is unfortunate since the fishing is nothing but exceptional right now.

We have a few archery moose hunting parities out now. The rifle hunters arrive in a week or so. Besides moose hunting they can partake in some great walleye fishing. The northern are hitting too.

We are seeing more and more couples on fly in vacations.  It seems that the women love the fishing just as much as the men. 

At Hilltop Lake we caught and released many nice walleye.  Karen has been very good at baiting her own hook (with minnows) and  releasing her own fish.  She has even progressed to ...read more.

Releasing the big one

Jon Loth has the right idea.  The big walleye are better off in the lake.  The smaller ones provide a tasty meal and the larger walleye can be turned to the lake to breed more feisty, tasty little ones.

Our camp policy is that all walleye over 22 inches are retuned to the lake.  We’ve seen an ...read more.

Still Hungry

This walleye took a temping jig, while he still had not finished his last meal.  The walleye at Ignace Outposts are voracious.  It is hard to believe that having a partly digested burbot (ling) still hanging out of his mouth is not enough for lunch. 

We often see Northern Pike with suckers or walleye from their last ...read more.

Metionga Lake keeps offering up these whopper walleye.  The numbers of walleye are nothing to ignore either.  Of course big fish like these are put back and smaller ones are kept to eat.

Adrian Brusky will attest to the walleye fishing on Metionga Lake.    Try it yourself.

“Good afternoon Brad.
