Lake trout

“Larry S is holding a lake trout caught minutes after arrival from in front of Irene 2. He was the first person to get a pole ready and the trout was caught from shore on the second cast.”

Not a bad way to start a trip but I think it would require a lot of effort to maintain ...read more.

An oxymoron

Posted by on Thursday, June 30, 2011 at 6:12 am

How can a smallie be big?  On Irene Lake … that’s how.

With controlled enthusiasm I believe I am fairly accurate making a safe bet that Irene Lake is the only choice for big smallies. Some guys will catch these fish with casual formality as though it was old news while forming a new tradition with Ignace Outposts . Recent history proves that ...read more.

Arriving at the lake

Arrivning at the cabin

The vacation really begins when you get to the lake.  Before the plane takes off and leaves you alone for a few days, the pilots are often a great source of local knowledge.  Randy (in the middle) gives a little last minute advice and kicks the dirt a little when the guys thank him for the safe flight. ...read more.
