Yesterday as the group at Irene Lake waited for their pickup after a week of fine fishing, Art was casting a jig off the dock.  This northern hit his jig and gave an intense battle on the 6 lb test line.

Since he was without a net and the water was high, he fought it right up onto ...read more.

Brad is SICK!

Posted by on Saturday, May 16, 2009 at 6:43 am

Yes, I am sick. Nothing to do with H1N1 or other exotic virus. I have that annual sickness that strikes on the third Sat in May. I have a bad case of “Walleye Fever”. This illness manifests itself like clockwork and leaves me in a state of duress until the remedy is applied. What makes it more severe for me ...read more.

Seseganaga Memory

Posted by on Monday, May 11, 2009 at 4:10 pm

Our 2009 season is beginning I am finding out I am not the only one thinking fishing. 

As we train pilots and other staff for the summer, fishing is also on my mind.  Today as I was getting boats ready and a cabin cleaned at Irene Lake, I was bemoaning the fact I didn’t have my fishing rod with ...read more.

Ice Out May 5/09

Posted by on Tuesday, May 5, 2009 at 1:43 pm

Ice went out last night!  We woke to a clear lake except for a few push ups of ice along the shore inside the break wall. 

It never ceases to amaze me how the ice can be 8 inches thick one day and gone the next.  A little wind and above freezing temps sure help.

Shore Lunch with RD

Posted by on Tuesday, March 10, 2009 at 6:12 pm

One of the highlights of any fishing trip with Ignace Outposts is the proverbial shore lunch. At this time of year my mouth waters with anticipation of fresh, still quivering walleye fillets cooking with potatoes and the ubiquitous pork and beans.

Here Rd of Officially Rugged fame shows how it is done.

What if I don’t like to fish or hunt?

Posted by on Sunday, February 15, 2009 at 8:45 am

Enjoying the remote wilderness is not contingent on fishing and hunting. We have canoes at our camps and exploring the shore line, viewing wildlife (moose, bear, eagles, owls, caribou, beavers etc.) and picking berries are all part of the experience. Bring a few good books and some suntan lotion and take advantage of the solitude and peace of nature at ...read more.

Return to Cold!

Posted by on Tuesday, January 13, 2009 at 10:03 am

We just returned to Ignace from our first swing of sport shows. We spent 3 days doing a show in Minneapolis and then 4 days doing a show near Chicago. We left Chicago just ahead of a forecast blizzard on Monday and drove all the way through to Ignace. 770 miles in 13 hours and 8 minutes. Roads were good.
