Canadian Wilderness Fly-in Fishing and Hunting Trips

We miss DUKE

DUKE IS STILL AROUND BUT AT 14 YEARS OLD I THOUGHT HE SHOULD STAY HOME. HES BEEN HERE EVERY YEAR SINCE WE BOUGHT THE PLACE SO IT WAS HARD LEAVING HIM HOME. I CATCH MYSELF LOOKING FOR HIM AS I WALK THRU CAMP.  I MAY TRY TO BRING HIM UP SECOND PART OF SEASON, WE’LL SEE. HES DEAF SO HE RANDOMLY BARKS JUST IN CASE THERES SOMETHING HES MISSING THAT NEEDS TO BE BARKED AT. I THOUGHT HIS TIME MAY BE CLOSING AS CAMP DOG LAST YEAR WHEN HE WOULD RUN AROUND LIKE AN OLD MAN WITH DEMENTIA THEN RUN AS FAST AS HE COULD DOWN TO THE DOCK TO CRAP IN THE MIDDLE OF IT. WHEN U SEE ME DOING THAT I GUESS MY TIME UP HERE WILL BE DONE ALSO.

Northern fishing has been FANTASTIC! June 6

THE NORTHERN FISHING THIS YEAR SO FAR HAS BEEN THE BEST WE’VE SEEN IN OUR 13YEARS. THE OWEN/SESSEMEN GROUP CAUGHT DOZENS OF FISH OVER 30″ WITH MANY PUSHING 40″. WHAT THE MOST UNBELIEVABLE IS THE WEIGHT OF THE FISH. THEY ARE HUGE ACROSS THE BACK AND BIG BELLIES. YESTERDAY I GUIDED JOHN KRUKAR AFTER DINNERContinue Reading

Lake Condition and what’s new this year

The lake is about a foot low on its level but nothing to worry about. I kinda like it this way. We had planned on having all new Yamaha motors this year. They’ve all been paid for and even delivered, then we found out they sent us short shaft motors instead of long. We hadContinue Reading

Start of Season

season has started and the first guests left yesterday. Terry Holloways group caught about 400 trout and some nice sized pike. They’re almost exclusively after trout and they do great year after year. This year the average size was bigger than normal they said. They like to troll but if you want to get biggerContinue Reading

Reservations are filling up fast for 2017

Our reservation book is filling fast with may and most of June being full already. We have about 90% repeat business so it’s great to see all our old friends. It also seems like everyone has a bigger group too! Thanks to John Owen and Craig Sesemann who is bringing a huge group this year.Continue Reading

September fishing

now that cool temps are here it should finally make the lakers more aggressive. We’ve found giant schools of them but thy have been hitting slow. Had some great catches but not as many as usual. Northerns have been doing well and the bigger ones getting caught deeper. Marv Burd from California caught his biggestContinue Reading

Fall is here

As I look out the office window it looks like a November day in Wisconsin. Windy, big waves, cool temps, I love it. Feels like hunting season. I think the 80s are gone for good hopefully. Next week his are all in the 60s so perfect for bear hunting. Fishing should take a little hitContinue Reading

2016 bear hunt begins monday

This should be an excellent bear hunt here at Atikwa this year. We have more and bigger bear hitting than we’ve ever seen. Our new bait this year has worked out great and their coming to the popcorn and mix like crazy. We have several new baits this year and all are getting hit hard.Continue Reading

June 22 2016

Water temp is starting to inch upward but still way behind what’s normal for this time of year. Northern are still in shallower water and not up on the reefs in big numbers yet. Walleye on the main lake has been good for Atikwa lake standards. We don’t get numbers here but do get someContinue Reading

Enjoy Mother Nature. Shut your electronics off for once!!

so far it’s been a much cooler than average season. Days in 60s and low 70s and nights in the low 50s. I love it. But now we’re going to see some days in the 80s and sunny. Still pretty wet up here so we don’t need any rain for awhile. Our new freezer isContinue Reading
