not to be outdone

Sam's Nothern

Sam fishes with her dad and brother Cole (yesterday’s post).  She holds her own, not only as the only girl in a group of fathers and sons (often up to 20 of them) but also in the fishing department. 

This is not her first rodeo and definitely not her last. more.

27 inches

Cole's 27 inch walley

Cole may be young in age but he is well experienced in the the finer points of outpost camp fishing.  Cole and his dad (and sister) have been going to Metionga Lake   in search of a walleye and northern for several years.  Cole is no slouch in the fishing department often out fishing most in the group. more.

Dave and Dee have been fishing with us at Metionga Lake for many years.  Every year Dee manages to out fish Dave and catch the big one for the week.  This year Dave caught the big one.

Trcka walleye 12

It is a long drive from Colorado to Ignace but the fishing and little get away is well worth the drive. more.

A great memory

Marie managed to land a 45 inch northern on Metionga Lake   last week.  It appears as though she enjoyed the fight.  I think catching the biggest fish was also a thrill considering she was the only woman in the group. 


Hi Brad and Karen, I have attached some pictures from our trip. …the Northern I am holding was more.

Father and Daughter

We see many fathers bring their sons fishing.  We also see fathers bring their daughters.  In fact we also see sons and daughters bring their fathers. 

Last week on Metionga Lake Rick and his daughter Marie enjoyed some quality time together.  Rick has been fishing with us for many years and this year the group expanded to 8 with Marie filling more.

Seseganaga Joe and Metionga Joey headed off to their respective summer abodes yesterday. 



Joe has been at Seseganaga Lake as a camp attendant for several years now.  He looks forward to returning to the lake some time around Sept when he is pulled out for the winter.  We know it is spring in Ignace when Joe starts more.

A bit of Drumming

When at a fly in fishing camp, fish and the acquisition thereof are usually of prime importance.  There is a time however when after the day’s adventures have ended on the water, a guy’s talents are revealed to the group.  Some cook, some play cards and some provide entertainment. 

Travis is talented and at Metionga Lake a few weeks ago, he more.
