Loree Lake Friends are back

I was walking through our parking lot the other day I saw some nice artwork on the side of an RV and as I walked closer to it I noticed a familiar signature on it, Jim Peters. A long time guest and fishermen, who has brought 74 different people to various camps with Amik Outposts over the years and we appreciated every one he has brought to experience our spectacular fishing. Here is their fishing report from last year.
We have a painting in our office by Jim from a scene on Springpole lake on one of their trips with us. This one is from a vacation to British Columbia, very nice....

Good times at Loree Lake

Here is a note and some pictures from a recent trip to Loree lake from Natalie S. They had a few days where it was quite windy but had a good time despite.

"Just wanted to say "thank you" to John and Renee for making my first trip to Canada....the best ever. My group stayed at Loree Lake and had a great time. Although we didn't have any record setting catches.....the ones we did, sure make for great eating 4 nights. I can't wait to get back next year!

Thanks again John and Renee for a great time. Here's a few of my favorite pictures.


Cherrington Lake pictures speak for themselves.

It has been a couple of years since we saw Larry K. and Ken F. but it is great to see old friends. I used to guide Ken early in my bush life on Deer Lake when we had a main lodge there. We've caught alot of fish together, back in the day when I had the time to fish... They went to Cherrington last week and caught a lot of big fish. These ones speak for themselves!!

Larry with a huge walleye.


Whitefish are even hitting jigs still. Usually you only catch them in the spring.

They caught too many big ones to write a caption beneath them all, Here they are:

The ones with the width between their eyes are the big ones!

Ken and Scott caught lots of Trophies on Cherrington last week too. Here are some of their pictures.

Ken still has the classic Amik hat!

Nice to see the next generation visiting Amik Outposts

After 15 years in the tourist business since I was 19 years old, most of the fishermen that come to Amik Outposts have been older than Rena and I. That trend is beginning to change. It is nice to see groups of friends and young families making the decision to come up to Red Lake and experience a quality vacation on a beautiful remote lake with lots of trophy fish to catch. The Loftus Party went to Jeanette recently and had an awesome time. They had a good recommend on this particular lake since the group in front of them was Mason's father in-law, Jerry N. and friends who have been fishing Jeanette with us for the past 10 years and may have told a few stories to Mason over the years at family functions... The fishing was great and the good times were too. Here are some of their pictures.

Shorelunch. This is a nice and easy way to enjoy those delicious walleyes!

When you have a big one on, a good man on the net is a neccesity. I have heard so many stories about the one that got away....

A nice big wally

Another one...

They caught a few Big northerns as well. These guys will be back on Jeanette in 2 years. We will be here to show them another great trip.
