June 2023

Truly, absolutely, amazing fishing! The fishing was insane this month with lots of numbers and sizes! Lots of fishermen used some artificial bait but minnows seemed to come out on top still! We heard about catching the bass around the nests before they spawned and using some top water plugs and plastics that really produced! The water temperatures warmed up quicker than other previous years into the 70’s and the fishing was unbelievable!!!

The Landing

It was a busy month at Caribou Falls Landing and truly enjoyed the good conversations and listening to the true fishing ‘tales’. Tom caught the largest northern measuring in at a yard stick and ¾ of a ruler-that is a very lengthy 45”!!! Tom’s monster pike was not a torpedo but a submarine wanting to stay down in the water putting up a fight! Look at Todd’s pike too-his was measuring in at 42”-it is a hog!!!
Look at Tony’s trophy hat! He collects his trophy pins and now his trophy pins wrap around his hat. Love to see some people treasure’s like Tony’s bling!

Proud parent alert!

Just a quick congrats to Louis for getting his pilot license complete in Edmonton, Alberta and Jonny for graduating high school!!

Kettle Falls Lodge -lovin’ it

Meet your host, Lisa. Lisa is new to Kettle Falls Lodge but has worked prior before 20 years ago and has helped out during the years at busy times. She made Kettle Falls her home this summer and we are happy to have her on our team!

Kettle Falls guests have been enjoying the updated meals with the big hunks of prime ribs and homemade Yorkshire pudding (pop overs), and a lot of Robert’s yummy food!

Father/son duo Jim and Dusty were quite the fishing crew as Dusty caught a 30” walleye and Jim caught a 42” pike! We had 17 pike registering 39” or over this month as well as 120 WALLEYES registering 27” or larger!!! Gigi caught 21” smallmouth bass which was the largest out of all fishermen in her fishing group as well as in the month at Kettle-wowza!!

Grandfather/grandson duo Lonnie and Chris caught the heck out of the fish! It was Chris’s first-time coming fishing with Lonnie and it was one to remember! Chris caught 2 trophies-one walleye and one bass while Grandpa Lonnie caught a trophy bass.

Father/son duo Rick and Nate had probably the greatest number of trophies at Kettle in June with 30 trophy fish between the 2 of them! Good fishing boys!

The fish are not far from the dock at Kettle. Josh caught a big ol’ monster walleye from the dock while fishing in the evening!!

Tom, his son and friend fished with Louis at Kettle and they had some wonderful fishing! Lots of walleyes-every size under the moon almost! Goes to show that the fishing doesn’t stop when it’s sunny or when raining-the fish don’t mind getting wet!

June’s island life at One Man

We had the pleasure of hosting a new group the Kenyon’s. They fished with Junior and had a memorable trip. They caught piles of fish and had a wonderful time!! Jay actually had a trifecta for trophies-he caught 3 species of trophies!

Gabe and his fishing buddies (and family) brought up their kids and they ventured out to One Man to fish for the week. The memories that were created with these kids and their dads is very memorable. Enjoying time in the boat, cooking shore lunches, and just enjoying their adventures in the north.
Couples Trip! Greg and his close buddy brought their wives up for the first time to One Man. Jackie caught trophy trifecta as well-27” walleye, 41” pike and 19” smallmouth bass while her gal pal, Jackie, registered her 27” walleye! Looks like the husbands will be bringing their wives on future trips to One Man as they are hooked on Halley’s Camps!

Jon, sons, family and friends encompassed One Man for their annual fishing trip. They love fishing the English River around One Man and everyone really enjoys it. You can see them in the pictures of One Man where they are enjoying the evening hanging out after a fun day’s fish. They even got to see a moose swim across and watched as it climbed out of the water!

Moosehorn, Rex and Trapline News

A great group of guests from Minnesota showed off their fishing skills at Trapline registering 11 trophy walleyes ranging from 27-29”! They not only had nice sized fish but they had a walleye frenzy going on! They caught so many fish! Justin and the gang are hooked and booked for 2024!

The largest trophy caught at the outposts was by Kurt measuring 40”-look at this monster’s head size!! I think Kurt also won for the smallest this month at the outposts with his northern measuring just over one hand length-they cannot all be MONSTERS!

Tom brought his grandson as a graduation present to our Moosehorn Lake Outpost. What a great gift! They had 7 trophy bass and were able to catch some fish and have some grandfather/grandson memories as they came from Florida for their fishing trip!
