Fished it in 2006. Decent Lake for Walleye and Northern. 27" walleye 100 yrds from cabin. 40" northern over in Cobham (the lake off of Vee to the North. Don't waste your time on the portage unless you are fishing for northern. Not one walleye caught.

Cabin is ok but cramped sleeping quarters. I would have slept in tha Gazebo but there was a bear on the island. We caught him in our boat stealing my Berkley Power Grubs and Worms.

The outfitter was the worst part. We were "specifically" told more than once they would fly in the extra weight if we paid the extra money and that they would fly the Beer and soda in ahead of time. We had no problem paying $1.25 per pound extra but once we got there things changed.

The plane to fly us in was running two hours late so we ended up having to listen to Bruce, the father, lecture us on the extra weight, how an otter can handle only so much weight. We asked them why our beer was not flown in ahead of time like promissed but we got the run around on that one. We asked them to fly some of it in mid week, but they said they no longer make mid week flights.

I see on there web site they have addressed this problem by no longer accomodating any extra weight. At least now they don't otright lie to you.

All said and done we would go back to there lakes but after spending $7,500 for the group we would go with another outfitter that at least would say thank you to us upon leaving.

getting jiggy-sorry to hear about your time on the extra weight issue. I can totally understand your point of view. If told something, should come through on the deal. Keep us in mind if you ever want to do an other fly in. We do the same deal flying items in ahead and it gets done. Example, I already have my planed loaded for tomarrow with a pre order to help save time in the morning. We fly beech 18's which is simluar size to the otter realitive speaking. Im flying in a group of 2 tomarrow therefor I have lots of extra room on the flight, Im flying in 900 pounds of beer and soda for a group coming up in acouple weeks that made the pre order.

We never count fish so I can not give exact counts. My guess would be 40 - 60 walleye a day per boat, 10 to 20 Northern Pike (we don't target them). We may actually only fish a total of 5-6 hours a day when you factor in shore lunch, cocktail hour(s), eradicating the camp of bears, and the fact we never start fishing b4 10am. We like to explore and it is a long boat ride to get to the far parts of the lake.

The best fishing ended up being right close to the cabin. Fish around the cabin island, the weed bed on the north side of the island constantly produced 4 to 6 fish on each drift. Also fish the shoreline on the north side of the lake.

There is an small Indian shack on the lake so don't be surprised if you see another boat. Keep an eye out for bears both at their camp as well as yours.

    • What specific things make him indecent or classless?    Did he grab women by the pu**y? Did he make fun of a disabled reporter? Did he call most Mexicans rapists? Did he make fun of John McCain because he was captured in Vietnam? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was born in Kenya? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was a Muslim? Did he say Megyn Kelly had "blood coming out of her wherever"? Did he say "Laziness is a trait in the blacks"?   I'd be interested to know what things Obama has done that are more indecent and classless than this.
    • Imagine an Obama who loved this country and had 8 years to show that.  The guy is smart, charismatic, and very likeable.  Instead we had 8 years of anti american ideology, lies, and race baiting. He chose that path, not me.
    • What reasons did you vote for Trump? Did it ever occur to you that those reasons may have been just things to get you to vote for him?
    • I know. I guess I forgot to put the  after my post.     Court decisions is what I was referring to because I also do not know of any laws officially separating church and state. There may be laws at the state or local level I don't know. The 1st amendment is not always interpreted by courts the same way. 
    • He has chosen to skip over decency and you earn respect, he is the one who had 8 years to show respect and class and failed.  He could have been the greatest president ever and unite this country but chose otherwise.  Even in his last days he is despicable.  That said i wont bow down to Trump and he needs to earn the respect obama has not.  Time will tell.
    • Anyone who thinks this country isn't heading to single payer, government funded healthcare is fooling themselves. I'm not in favor of it but we may as well just do it and get it over with now.
    • But will you recognize it? Just like I am sure that President Obama has signed legislation and done other things that YOU think are "good things"  for America that Sledneck doesn't recognize.
    • I give up.  Because it gets people to vote for them?    
    • Why would they worry about the debt, we can just print money????
    • It is a special accommodation for a particular religion.     No law states that that I am aware of.  Perhaps you have more information.  Just some court decisions which while they may be binding are not laws.
