Good fishing, Good weather, Good times!

Our season continues to roll on and we have seen many happy fishermen come through our doors.  The weather is quite hot, upper 80’s and even warmer for most of the forecast.  Fishing has been as awesome as ever with walleyes and pike moving slowly into deeper water, around 10 feet from what I have been told by the outgoing fishermen.  Once the cabbage weed grows a bit more the fish should come back into the shallows before heading to their mid-summer areas.

There has been some big fish caught lately on all of the lakes with big numbers of fish everywhere as well.  Tons of walleyes between 24-28 inches with a few 29 plus as the largest so far.  The largest pike so far is 44.5 inches and plenty of 40 plus trophies were caught and released last week as well.  Fishing continues to be great!

Here is a picture from Loree Lake of a beautiful 29.5 inch walleye caught and released by Bruce E. recently.

The Big Pike have been on and off, one week every lake catches many 40 plus inch fish and then they kind of turn off for a few days.  It is hard to predict anything in nature.  We have a great gene pool and the fish are very healthy.  This year in particular we have had some monster fish caught and they seem to be very thick across the back. Here is some pictures from Vee Lake This thick monster was caught by Garrett B. on a gold Doctor Spoon.

The Miller boys took their first flyin trip with us to Loree Lake recently and are seriously hooked!  They had so much fun and caught so many fish that they will be back!  I shared their video on my last post but here are a few pictures from their fishing vacation on Loree Lake.

Just a reminder to anyone who is yet to come fishing with us to bring a good water filter for drinking water.  With hot weather on the horizon it is important that you have plenty of water with you in the bush but it is heavy and we will want everyone to be on their weight limit.  We have lots of guests who use these types of filters and are very happy with the quality. 

Here is a link I found in my first search but it will give you an idea of what you should have.  They weigh one pound.  A case of 24 water bottles is 30 pounds.

Ice is a hot commodity in the north.

At Amik Outposts we do our best to show your party the trip of a lifetime everytime you visit us.  This includes sending in a cooler of ice with you for drinks and to help keep beverages cool.  Everyone loves this and we try to send at least one cooler in with each party.  There is a responsibilty on your part also.  You cannot expect us to send in a cooler or 2 of ICE if you show up with more than your allotted 100 pounds per person of gear which includes all of the items you want to take in with you,  (beverages/food/tackle/bait/clothing/sleeping bag).  Please be diligent and weigh your gear at home before heading up to see us. Here are a few tips on packing for your trip.

We also have had a number of requests regarding the use of a Satellite phone.  The Sat phones we provide at each lake are for you to call us if there is a problem or emergency at the camp while you are there.  There is a company called Roadpost that will ship you a Iridium Sat phone prior to your trip if you wish to call home or work while you are at a remote Outpost.  Here is the link if you would like more information.  Roadpost Sat phones

Unless you really need to call home, the Bush should be your oasis from the world.  Leave the technology at home.  It will not only save you on weight… it is good for your soul, being out there listening to the silence.  We are about Trophy Fishing but also we are about providing a place for you to slow down and focus on the simple things.  Remember you are on vacation.
