Sign of spring

Posted by on Monday, May 5, 2014 at 10:45 am

A long winter does really funny things to people.  Seseganaga Joe who rarely likes to venture to a population center larger than Ignace had enough of winter this year and drove 4000 km to visit to other end of our province.  I think the whole trip was an excuse to see new faces – some of the faces around here ...read more.

Experience counts

Posted by on Thursday, August 16, 2012 at 6:34 am

Over the years many of our guests have got to know Randy.  And I can not count the number of times guests have commented on his skill and ability as a pilot.  I think some come here just to fly with him.

Recently, Randy was awarded a DeHavilland achievement certificate and pin for surpassing 10,000 hours of ...read more.

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.

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.

The Legend

Posted by on Monday, June 13, 2011 at 6:27 am

Randy our chief pilot has been with us for 23 years.  Anyone who flies with him remarks as to his skill and composure.  Randy has been piloting Otters for over 3 decades.  Not many “bush pilots” stick around bush flying that long and even fewer fly the same aircraft that long.

The other day while passing time on the ...read more.

It has begun

Posted by on Friday, May 14, 2010 at 8:46 am

The weather here is unpredictable except when it comes to our opening.  While our weather forecasters try to tell us that temperatures will be 1 degree warmer in 50 years, they have a dismal record of predicting 24 hours in advance. 

I can forecast however with remarkable accuracy that our first day of the season will be lousy weather.  ...read more.

Joe is ready

Posted by on Friday, July 31, 2009 at 7:03 am

Joe, our camp attendant at Seseganaga, gets to fish now and then himself.  Fresh walleye for supper is a nice perk of the job.  Once he gets his work done for the day nothing beats a little R&R on the lake.

He is not lonely in the bush but he would still like to have you visit. 

Seseganaga Lake with ...read more.
