All in a week

Don from Iowa was at Seseganaga lake last week with a few buddies. 

Fishing of course is a main event at an outpost camp, but a sampling of Don’s photos from the week show many reasons to make an Ignace Outpost vacation.

Bring yer boots

Posted by on Wednesday, June 3, 2009 at 7:22 am

The water levels here keep us guessing.  After relatively high early ice out water levels, we’ve had a great deal of rain.  Not only rain but cool temps for this time of year.

Many of our docks are again under water.

Seseganaga Memory

Posted by on Monday, May 11, 2009 at 4:10 pm

Our 2009 season is beginning I am finding out I am not the only one thinking fishing. 

As we train pilots and other staff for the summer, fishing is also on my mind.  Today as I was getting boats ready and a cabin cleaned at Irene Lake, I was bemoaning the fact I didn’t have my fishing rod with ...read more.

Seseganaga – “Lake of many islands” (and fish)

Posted by on Friday, January 23, 2009 at 8:58 am

This large body of water runs over 25 miles with hundreds of miles of shoreline.

There is nowhere on this lake you can be more than 1/2 a mile from shore. This lake produces consistently and is one of the few lakes in Canada where 50 inch plus NORTHERN can still be found. LAKE TROUT ...read more.

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.

A Northern Pike Lake

Posted by on Friday, November 21, 2008 at 8:37 am

I was reading the other day (yes I do that sometimes) about “What makes a good Northern Pike Lake” in Cabela’s Outfitter Journal.

Here are some of their criteria – and I compared them to Seseganaga Lake just for fun:

– Large Body of water ================== check

– marshy spawning areas ==== ============ ...read more.

A good foundation is very important

Posted by on Sunday, October 12, 2008 at 7:41 am

I often have guests tell me they would like Joe’s job at Seseganaga Lake. I suspect many who say this don’t have a very good understanding of what a camp attendant does.

I didn’t hire Joe because he likes fishing. Besides being a real outdoorsman, Joe must wear many hats. He is a carpenter, repair man, host, mechanic, all round ...read more.
