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.

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

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

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.
