Through the eyes of a child

Posted by on Thursday, January 15, 2009 at 8:28 am

For those who think an Ignace Outposts trip is nothing more than fishing.

The Holzer family from Wisconsin have vacationed with us for many years. This fall, after their August family trip, Amy, their 10 year old daughter (5th grade) wrote the following piece for a school project on descriptive writing about her favorite place.

It is interesting ...read more.

Caribou at Seseganaga

Posted by on Sunday, September 28, 2008 at 7:27 am

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 is in the air

Posted by on Sunday, September 7, 2008 at 7:51 am

I wish it was me going moose hunting on Hilltop Lake this fall. Our fishermen last week took this picture of a 50 incher browsing near the outlet of the lake. I’m sure when called, he’ll come running, perhaps with a bouquet of flowers behind his back. Only weeks now until archery season opens.

Low and Over

Posted by on Thursday, August 28, 2008 at 7:48 am

These birds have to be one of the most majestic in the sky. Considering they were once endangered, we do see plenty of eagles these days. One of our Metionga Lake guests from last week emailed these photos of an eagle cleaning up some fish offal.

In nature everything is part of a cycle. Any fish remains are quickly returned ...read more.

Rescue Mission

Posted by on Thursday, August 21, 2008 at 7:55 am

From the “I thought I’d seen everything” file.

Last weekend at Irene Lake, a seagull came right to the boat and grabbed a hook set being rigged for lake trout. The seagull flew off with a good length of fishing line and a hook and minnow in its mouth. Perhaps sensing this was not a good situation to be in, ...read more.

more wildlife

Posted by on Tuesday, August 19, 2008 at 8:16 am

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.

An even better reason not to skinny dip!

Posted by on Sunday, August 3, 2008 at 8:22 am

The Transue party just returned from Irene lake this morning with tales of prehistoric proportions.

I’ve seen this turtle before and have also seen one at least twice this size on Irene Lake but these are the first recorded evidence of the monster.

The guys saw the turtle off the dock and managed to get some great photos.

walleye fisher

Posted by on Friday, July 25, 2008 at 8:03 am

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.

I imagine he doesn’t practice catch and release.
