1948 or 2008?

Posted by on Friday, October 10, 2008 at 7:38 am

At two of our outpost camps we have camp attendants. Joe our camp attendant at Seseganaga Lake was caught doing his laundry on his cabin deck. When you spend the summer “in the bush” you make do without some of our modern conveniences. Joe has a ringer washer to do his laundry. It works well. Looking at a picture like ...read more.

How high was it?

Posted by on Thursday, October 9, 2008 at 7:30 am

This July we saw some of the highest water levels we’ve seen in years. At Seseganaga Lake, Joe filled barrels with water to help hold the dock decks down so they wouldn’t float away.

Water levels have since receded to the point that the docks are now a couple of feet out of the ...read more.

A view back in time

About 20 years ago this was one of our finest cabins. Today it is a shed. For those who may not recognize this cabin, it is on Seseganaga Lake. It is the old cabin 2. In its day, it was state of the art. It was one big room, 8 beds in the back half and kitchen eating area in ...read more.

Between archery and gun season

Posted by on Tuesday, October 7, 2008 at 7:50 am

Spike bull I called out for a photo op. My only weapon, a camera.

We are right between archery moose and gun moose seasons. Our camps are empty for a day or two. Our archer moose hunters managed 2 moose taken (one on Seseganaga and one on Hilltop) and between the 2 groups they saw 20 moose ...read more.

Cribbed cabin

On Saturday, Joe, Randy and I went to Seseganaga Lake for the day. We have archery moose hunters at camp now so we spent a little time visiting with them and then got on to work.

Cabin #3 was needing a little foundation work. We built 3 cribs under the cabin.

After a final inspection it ...read more.

Caribou at Seseganaga

In August the Dodwell family spent a few quality days at our West Bay Camp on Seseganaga Lake.

Phil Dodwell challenged his family to spot a caribou while on the trip. The last morning of their stay his wife Tammy spotted a bull caribou swimming across the lake right towards the cabin. Dillion, their son, grabbed his video camera and ...read more.

Fall trout

Posted by on Friday, September 12, 2008 at 8:20 am

I love fall fishing. It seems that the big ones are feeding often to get ready for our long winters. Generally fall fishing is in good weather, maybe a little rain and cool evenings but trumping all is very few bugs.

Lake trout season closes Sept 30 because of their spawn, but leading up to the spawn, the ...read more.
