Lake trout

Posted by on Wednesday, December 17, 2008 at 8:07 am

We have several species of fish in the lakes we operate on. Most of our guests look primarily for walleyes to eat and northern for the fight. One of my favorites which fights like a mule and tastes great is Lake Trout .

Lake trout require cold, clear, well oxygenated water. They are found in Seseganaga Lake, Irene Lake and Gamble Lake .

In summer they often move ...read more.

No bones about it

Posted by on Wednesday, October 1, 2008 at 8:09 am

A few weeks ago, I promised a video showing the proper technique to fillet a lake trout. Here’s how to do it to end up with no bones.In August my buddy, Darren Elder, our local biologist, was with me at Irene Lake and we taped this demo. Being a bio doesn’t make Darren an expert filletter, but being an expert ...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 trout

Posted by on Friday, September 12, 2008 at 8:20 am

I love fall fishing. It seems that the big ones are feeding often to get ready for our long winters. Generally fall fishing is in good weather, maybe a little rain and cool evenings but trumping all is very few bugs.

Lake trout season closes Sept 30 because of their spawn, but leading up to the spawn, the ...read more.

Irene Lake August 08

Posted by on Saturday, August 23, 2008 at 8:00 am

Irene Lake is one of those few lakes where when walleye is slow (and yes it happens on every lake) you can switch modes and fish trout. Or you can cast for northern pike, or you can tackle some hungry small mouth bass.

Last weekend saw slower than normal walleye action, but ...read more.

Rescue Mission

Posted by on Thursday, August 21, 2008 at 7:55 am

From the “I thought I’d seen everything” file.

Last weekend at Irene Lake, a seagull came right to the boat and grabbed a hook set being rigged for lake trout. The seagull flew off with a good length of fishing line and a hook and minnow in its mouth. Perhaps sensing this was not a good situation to be in, ...read more.

Is there such a thing as a bad day of fishing?

Posted by on Monday, August 4, 2008 at 8:38 am

Nick Transue and a “hammer handle” northern. Lots of these in the lakes.

Wesley Transue with a typical Irene Lake trout. Lots of these too!

A little persistence pays off. The smile says it all.

Father and son, Nick and Wesley Transue from Florida spent a week at Irene Lake with 4 others. The ...read more.
