How high was it?

Posted by on Thursday, October 9, 2008 at 7:30 am

This July we saw some of the highest water levels we’ve seen in years. At Seseganaga Lake, Joe filled barrels with water to help hold the dock decks down so they wouldn’t float away.

Water levels have since receded to the point that the docks are now a couple of feet out of the ...read more.

Fall sunsets

Serenity!

Sure beats developing couch potato skills. The scene is better than any high def TV can produce.

Evening in the fall is a great time to be on the lake. The sun is setting early so the fish seem to be feeding more getting ready for winter.

In August the Dodwell family spent a few quality days at our West Bay Camp on Seseganaga Lake.

Phil Dodwell challenged his family to spot a caribou while on the trip. The last morning of their stay his wife Tammy spotted a bull caribou swimming across the lake right towards the cabin. Dillion, their son, grabbed his video camera and ...read more.

more from last weekend

Posted by on Thursday, September 18, 2008 at 7:50 am

OK so it wasn’t all work. Last weekend after the job list was done, we did get a little fishing time in.

Fall fishing isn’t always non-stop catching but it is well worth the time on the lake. We caught northern, bass and lake trout but the walleye were not cooperating. It happens on the best of lakes sometimes. Perhaps ...read more.

Still “40 something”

Posted by on Tuesday, September 16, 2008 at 8:17 am

Karen calls it the party that won’t end.

For me it’s a different story. Being “40 something ” is coming to an end.

Last weekend my “older” friends went with me to Irene Lake to let me know what it will be like to be cresting the “hill”. In a day I make the half century mark.

It seems going ...read more.

Fall camp work

Posted by on Wednesday, September 10, 2008 at 8:02 am

As the season winds down we start seeing openings in our bookings. Since spring always seems to surprise us by coming early, we take advantage of breaks in the fall bookings to get some of the messy work done.

Painting cabin floors falls into that category of “it needs to be done and someone’s gotta do it.”

The other day ...read more.

Ed Pierce returning from trip # 30

Ed Peirce made his first trip to visit us in 1987. Today he returned from Metionga Lake completing his 30th fishing adventure with us. Since Ed averages about 500 walleye caught and released per week (and yes he does keep count) that translates into about 15,000 walleye over the years. When ...read more.
