Fall Maintenance

Posted by on Thursday, October 16, 2008 at 7:29 am

Do you wonder what we do around Ignace Outposts when fishing ends?

In the fall we go through all our outboard motors – all 88 of them. Every motor is tuned and checked and repairs are made or motors are tagged for trade.

John from Metionga doesn’t just come out of the bush in the fall and put his feet up for the winter. He has so far gone through about 40 motors with more coming once our hunt is over. Randy, Joe and I help out too. The job is big but it has to be done.

There is nothing worse for a fisherman than a motor that doesn’t work. We do our best to assure all our motors are in top shape and ready for another year of fishing.
