A long time coming

At the first sport show I attended 24 years ago, one of the first guests ever I booked was Craig Johnson. I was a rookie outfitter with big dreams and Craig was a rookie fisherman with dreams of big fish. It seems both our dreams have come true.

Since then Craig has made many many trips to our place, usually 2 to 3 times per year. He has brought over 100 different people to Ignace Outposts, many of whom have spawned into their own groups.

Last week Craig brought his wife (and favorite fishing partner) along with another couple to Hilltop Lake.

Craig told me that during his many trips to Ignace Outposts, he has caught more than a lifetime’s worth of fish (big, small and everything in between). And he still enjoys it!
Fishing last week near the inlet on Hilltop Lake produced countless walleyes in 6 feet of water and less.

Not to be outdone, Craig’s wife went fish for fish with Craig in landing old marble eyes. Double headers were common with it becoming almost a contest who could get the fish in quicker only to release it and land another.
