Office in the Sky

Posted by on Monday, June 8, 2009 at 7:11 am

Returning from one of our outposts, Karen was in the Cessna when we crossed paths. Being handy with the camera, she took the opportunity to capture a photo of my office in the sky.

Spring time keeps us busy getting camps open and equipment moved but regular jobs also get done.

The cabin at West Bay on Seseganaga Lake now has a new deck.

Coldwater boot camp

Posted by on Thursday, June 4, 2009 at 7:11 am

I came across an excellent site for information on cold water immersion. I know that no one plans to fall into the lake while fishing but things happen when you least expect it. For those old boy scouts, “Be Prepared” is a great motto.

I encourage anyone who wishes to boat in our area to check out this site.

Booked for another year

Posted by on Monday, June 1, 2009 at 7:51 am

When the much anticipated fishing trip is over, parting seems such a sweet sorrow.  These fellas from Wisc have made well over a dozen years in a row, but even before they load the vehicle to drive home, they are booked in for another year.

Turkey Vultures

Wildlife viewing is one of those added features of an Ignace Outpost vacation.  Our guests regularly see moose, bear, eagles, otters, beaver (not the airplanes), deer, caribou, loons… the list goes on.

If there is decaying animal matter around, turkey vultures are often seen.  Last week on the river south of Irene Lake our guests found a moose carcass, ...read more.

Spring walleye

Mike and Darla arrived at Irene Lake last week right after a late snow storm.  They bundled up and got off to doing what they came to do.  A couple of nice walleye like these get the heart pumping and the cold is almost unnoticeable.
