This morning’s email included a note from the Bluchier Crew who left our place yesterday. It is great to get feed back from our guests. This one I have to share!

“The 6 of us just came out of the Metionga Lake at Ignace Outposts’ Cabin #3. We experienced the most fabulous fishing ...read more.

Wesley Transue with a typical Irene Lake trout. Lots of these too!

A little persistence pays off. The smile says it all.

Father and son, Nick and Wesley Transue from Florida spent a week at Irene Lake with 4 others. The ...read more.

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.

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.

Handicapped? …nope!

Even though we don’t spend as much time fishing as most people think, I did break down and buy Karen a new rod and reel this spring. First time out, the rod snapped in half. Karen swears it was a large fish but I know a trophy rock when I see one. Since we had only two rods in the ...read more.

Right in front of Karen’s folks place on Agimak Lake, this Heron captured a small walleye. No sign of what bait he used but rumor has it Berkley Gulp Alive works well for walleye.

Hilltop Lake fishing – early July

Posted by on Wednesday, July 2, 2008 at 4:42 pm

With Canada Day and the 4th of July in the same week, summer holidays are in full swing. The first week of July is traditionally a great time to be on the lakes. Canada Day on Hilltop Lake Sue and Den Oksanen caught and released walleyes in the rain, in the sun, in the wind and in no wind.

Hilltop ...read more.
