Hottest Fishing I can Remember - Wilderness North

Celebrating 30 Years of Wilderness North  –          

Hottest Fishing I can Remember

Alan Cheeseman, Wilderness North PresidentAnd I have a good memory! At first we wondered about the impact of the early ice out (April 14th), the warmer than usual late winter, and the low water due to less than normal snow & rain so far in 2010.

Well wonder no more. Every group has had Master Angler catches and good quantities. But to check the records, we looked back at 2009. Now remember, we opened May 17th last year, and one week later this year. Even with fewer anglers on the water, we have exceeded our walleye count…and are running about even with trophy pike. This week we will open Miminiska Lodge, no one has been on that part of the Albany yet, and over at Makokibatan, 30 trophy walleye are already on the board. We will post the Master Angler score sheet next week. Unofficially we number 44 big girl walleye and 19 jumbo pike.

This week’s Master Angler Stories Podcast, features the voices of three Master Anglers from late May, two from Minnesota, and one from Chicago. Click here to learn about their thoughts on lure and presentation styles

Soldiers return as our guests

Group coordinator Mark Snyder has the planes, soldiers, and details in good order. Many of our guests continue to ask, “How can I help?” There’s two ways, one you can buy a trip during that time and be in camp, and part of your trip price will go to PHW, or you can send us a donation to help pay the costs of flights, fishing equipment, etc. We provide, as our gift, hotel lodging, flights from Thunder Bay to Miminiska, and all the lodge services. Drop me an e-mail if you can help.

I always value your comments and questions. Send them to me by clicking here or call at
