Bringing your camera on a fly in trip is good for more than taking pictures of your fishing partners in their underwear. Our part of the country is blessed with many types of wild life just aching to be photographed. All these pictures were taken with in days of each other in early August. The moose and loons were on ...read more.

Moon party makes August trip… again

Posted by on Sunday, August 17, 2008 at 8:16 am

Seseganaga Lake is well known for the “chef’s pleasure” (walleye, northern and lake trout)

It is possible to catch all three species in one day on this lake.

Vernice Moon has caught many walleye in his day and still gets a thrill from landing fish like the old days.

Roger Breitsprecher catches his share ...read more.

Seseganaga August fishing

Posted by on Friday, August 15, 2008 at 8:07 am

A week on Seseganaga Lake in August can produce some nice results. We’ve dealt with high water, bad weather and bugs this summer but it has been worth it when the fishing has been “on”.

Craig Sherven added several more photos to his bragging wall with some of these fish. One of these fish would make a trip ...read more.

Burbot

Posted by on Thursday, August 14, 2008 at 8:05 am

We don’t see many of these fresh water fish but they are actually rather plentiful. The burbot is also known as a ling, an eelpout and a lawyer. These fish dwell on the bottom of cold lakes and are often caught while lake trout fishing. Although they are rather ugly to look at, they make a fine meal. The ...read more.

Invite a walleye to lunch

Posted by on Saturday, August 2, 2008 at 8:34 am

July is international “invite a walleye to lunch” month. (At least here in Ignace) As a matter of fact, May to Oct is the season for walleye lunches.

At Seseganaga lake the walleye are more than willing to oblige.

The Olson party not only had fun catching and releasing walleye all week, they fried a few ...read more.

Good reason not to skinny dip

Posted by on Friday, August 1, 2008 at 8:23 am

Larry Schroedle of the Olson crew on Seseganaga Lake captured the largest northern last week with this 49 incher. (easily over 30 lbs)

I’ve heard that many guys take the opportunity to jump in the lake while on their trips to the wilderness; often wearing nothing more than a birthday suit. After seeing fish like this I would think skinny ...read more.

July at Seseganaga

Posted by on Thursday, July 31, 2008 at 12:05 pm

Many folks shy away from July fishing figuring they can do better in June or Sept. Bob Olson and his crew from Chicago have been coming to Seseganaga Lake every July for over a decade. They can attest that not only is the weather generally more stable and bugs less, the fishing is nothing short of phenomenal.

The third week ...read more.

The water is still rising. It is higher than we’ve ever seen in this area and it won’t stop raining. Our docks are under water at most lakes.
