Paul R. from St Paul sent up a few more photos from his group’s trip in mid Sept. at Metionga Lake.

The “Boys in Blue” certainly managed a few nice fish.

Paul wrote: “More pics, what a great trip.“

Of course he also added the big ones were put back. Only small ones were kept to eat. more.

The nut doesn’t fall far from the tree

No doubt about it! Like father like son.

I previously posted a picture of my grandson Zachary catching his first fish . His expression was priceless.

Now I know where the excitement comes from. Zach’s father Scott was at Flindt lake and caught about his 8 millionth walleye and it still produces a thrill.

Zachary’s first walleye

Scott’s 8 millionth more.

It wasn’t all work…

Posted by on Wednesday, September 24, 2008 at 7:38 am

Fall fishing can be pretty darn good.

Scott and Robesy managed a little “play”time last weekend on Flindt Lake. The 3rd weekend of Sept is often shunned as a good fishing time but this proves that walleye still feast late in the fall.

The work got done and the boys had more.

Fall Metionga Lake fishing

Posted by on Monday, September 22, 2008 at 7:40 am

Even tho’ the fishing parties have given way to moose hunting, pictures are still trickling in from this fall’s fishing.

Jim Pierce and Jeff Worple joined Jim’s brother Ed on Ed’s 30th trip with us over Labor day week. ( see the post for Sept 8 )

Jim has been a long time regular guest as well. No problems catching Sept fish on Metionga Lake this more.

St Paul’s Finest at Metionga Lake

Posted by on Friday, September 19, 2008 at 7:58 am

Earlier this month the Republican National Convention was held in St Paul MN. With a convention such as that there is a very large police presence. The days of the RNC were long and busy. Stress levels were stretched to the max. Understandably, several of St Paul’s finest took a little break after the convention to unwind and kick back more.

Better Late than never

Jeff Wideman visited us in August. Jeff brings a Wisconsin contingent to Metionga Lake each summer. Sometimes even the “chief in charge” manages to impress the boys with a nice fish or two.

Putting a picture like this on the office wall or desk will bring accolades – particularly from underlings.

See you next summer Jeff.

Brad and more.

30th Ignace Outpost Trip

Posted by on Monday, September 8, 2008 at 8:43 am

Ed Pierce returning from trip # 30

Ed Peirce made his first trip to visit us in 1987. Today he returned from Metionga Lake completing his 30th fishing adventure with us. Since Ed averages about 500 walleye caught and released per week (and yes he does keep count) that translates into about 15,000 walleye over the years. When more.

Lucky 13

Posted by on Monday, September 8, 2008 at 7:48 am

A note from a two-time a year guest.

“My group has been flying into various lakes with Brad and Karen for seven years now, but we always make our August trip to Metionga. This, our 13th overall trip, was the best ever. The fishing was simply outrageous !!! In seven days, six fishermen caught something in excess of more.
