These trophies are normal for Irene Lake but you just don’t catch a lot of walleye.  It is a clear water lake with trout and bass as well as northern pike.  The walleye are there but can be fussy sometimes.  The catching of ...read more.

Some fireworks

Kaboom

The 4th of July is known for fireworks in the USA.  Being a little north of the border in Ignace, we had had to settle for a different type of fireworks.

Nice Fish 2010

Irene 2010 002

Irene Lake is known as “Extra Large Walleye Lake” for a reason.  We don’t see lots of Walleye on Irene Lake but the ones you do get are extra large. 

Nice fish, nice scenery but I’m not sure sure about the rest of the photo.  Thanks for the picture Joe.  See you again soon.

During the opening ceremonies for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, NBC broadcast a short feature about the relationship between Canada and the USA. Karen and I were mostly watching the Canadian network coverage but just happened to be checking what the US networks were broadcasting when we saw this. It took a while to find it on line.

2010 is our 25th season at Ignace Outposts

Posted by on Wednesday, December 30, 2009 at 11:09 am

You’ll hear this often over the next year. We are excited to be in our 25th season. Looking back we were just pups when we came to Ignace. We came with two small children and one in the oven, a big dog, lots of ambition and no idea that we’d still be enjoying this a quarter century later. Karen agreed ...read more.
