Fly-in fly fishing

Posted by on Wednesday, September 21, 2016 at 10:05 am

When describing our business, there’s often confusion about the ‘fly’ part. We have seaplanes to ferry anglers to remote outpost cabins thus fly in. Fly fishing is a very small part of the angling opportunities we offer. Most of our guests jig or troll with great success for abundant northern and walleye in our outposts lakes. Occasionally we get some serious ...read more.

Old Seseganaga Shoreline

Posted by on Thursday, March 19, 2015 at 11:30 am

Things have changed.  I suspect not many of our guests would be able to identify the location of the picture below.  It is the shoreline of what we refer to as “Main Camp” at Seseganaga Lake.  The photo as taken in 1989 before we started building the new cabins.  The building on the right is no longer there and was ...read more.

Dressed for success

We can honestly say we don’t hire our staff for their fashion sense.  In fact I think we have had some very colorful people working for us over the years.

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 ...read more.

Any one remember?

I was looking in a cupboard this afternoon for something totally unrelated to work, and found an unmarked CD – remember those?  I had no idea what might be on it, but I know from looking at the photos and seeing some of the people involved, where it came from.  Thanks Ted. 

Anyone recognize this outpost location? circa 1989

This “perfect” beaver hut is in the bay just north of the camp, where the large bull moose was also hanging around.  Bob

Many guests at Seseganaga Lake saw the bull hanging around near this beaver dam.  Caribou were seen near the spot too.  Now you know approximately where to look.  Get up to Ses and keep your eyes ...read more.

Joe’s office

Even at Seseganaga Lake our camp manager Joe has a little office.  We call it the phone booth and I know for a fact he spends very little time there.  Everyday about 7 AM, I get a “Everything’s OK” check in call and unless Joe has a list if things needed at camp, the conversation is over quickly.  Joe is ...read more.

Once again…

Posted by on Tuesday, September 6, 2011 at 6:00 am

Brad & Karen, Once again, the fishing on SES was spectacular!  We didn’t catch any real monsters, but the quantity of fish we caught more than made up for that.  Our group of 12 caught somewhere between 1,400 and 1,800 walleye in the 4.5 days we fished (and didn’t kill ourselves doing it)!  I’d estimate the average size to be ...read more.
