It is not wimpy to leave the water when something like this storm is approaching.  Safety on the lake demands a little common sense.   Most of us are blessed with a bit of this and really should use it. 

Lightening and graphite rods seem to attract one another.  It is the guy who waves one ...read more.

Care with fire

This is not something you want to see while on the lake. And it really is not something you want to be responsible for.  And particularly it is not something you want to pay for. 

A small fire on an island can quickly become a forest fire with the wrong winds and a little inattentiveness.  Fortunately, the ...read more.

Something to think about

Posted by on Wednesday, June 10, 2009 at 7:46 am

While in the outpost camp, many guests like to cook their fish with oil.  There are a few considerations when doing this. 

Most important is safety.  Please do not deep fry with oil inside the cabin.  Always have a pot lid or something to smother a fire if the situation arises.  And keep in mind, hot oil and water ...read more.

Coldwater boot camp

Posted by on Thursday, June 4, 2009 at 7:11 am

I came across an excellent site for information on cold water immersion. I know that no one plans to fall into the lake while fishing but things happen when you least expect it. For those old boy scouts, “Be Prepared” is a great motto.

I encourage anyone who wishes to boat in our area to check out this site.

Most deadly sport?

Posted by on Wednesday, December 3, 2008 at 8:32 am

I am not sure if many who read this have seen a TV show called “MANswers“. It is definitely targeted towards the adolescent mind. Since my wife often reminds me I sometimes act adolescent, I figure I can learn some good stuff that may be useful when I grow up.

On this “educational” show, I learned that fishing is the ...read more.

Thinking of 2009

Posted by on Monday, October 27, 2008 at 7:03 am

Our 2008 season is barely over and already we are planning for 2009. One thing new for 2009 which will be required by all our guests is a Pleasure Craft Operator Card (a boat operators certificate).

This is a Canadian Law which affects anyone who wishes to operate a boat in Canada. Hopefully your outfitter has told you about this requirement.

If ...read more.

Near Miss

Posted by on Saturday, July 19, 2008 at 11:46 am

We get to hear many hair-raising stories of fishing valor and misadventures. There are some adventures that are good learning tools. We’ve seen our share of hooked fingers, filleted fingers, bruises, bumps and even scalps opened by carelessly tossed rocks. Last month we had another “learning” experience on Seseganaga Lake.

I can’t invent these kind of things.
