“We just landed at camp and we figured we’d get our lines wet and put a few fish in the boat at the lower falls by Metionga camp.  At this point, Jake is somewhat new to open water fishing so he and I were going over a few basics on the gear and how to feel the lures, ...read more.

The Bat House

Posted by on Thursday, January 22, 2015 at 7:00 am

This original Metionga Lake cabin was not named after the caped crusader.  It actually had a fair population of bats.  I understand they did keep the mosquito population under control but it was quite the trade off.   You would have to be sure to sleep with either a fly swatter or a tennis racket within reach.

In the 90’s the ...read more.

Dressed for success

There is always a story

Posted by on Monday, June 17, 2013 at 9:22 am

Steve and some buddies have been fishing Metionga Lake for many years.  These guys bring their sons and (daughters) along as a part of building relationships and sharing quality time together.  The young folks learn from the old(er) and do their best to keep up.  The older are pro’s however in some of the finer points of “fish camp”.  Part of the ...read more.

Why sit at home?

In the US it is Memorial Day weekend.  In Canada our May holiday weekend was last weekend.  It is officially called Victoria Day in Canada celebrating the Queen’s birthday, I understand, but since falls on the third weekend in May and that usually is near May 24 and there are 24 beer in a case… it is now somehow referred ...read more.

Nick's 26 inch Walley

Nick brought up another big walleye on Metionga Lake . His dad has been bringing Nick on an annual trip for many years.  I suspect it won’t be long and he’ll be bringing his dad. 

Seeing 28 inch walleye caught and released certainly makes a father proud.  Sharing time in a boat away from the distractions of our busy ...read more.
