ON THE WATER
To say that fishing on Richter Lake is easy would be an understatement. The lake’s pike and walleye are abundant and aggressive. Both species can be caught in the same spots using the same baits. Catch fish by trolling, casting and jigging with virtually every type of lure on the market. Everything works and live bait isn’t necessary.
If a spot looks like a fishing spot, it probably is. If the wind blows against a shoreline, fish will stack up there. Casting, trolling or jigging around a reef is a sure bet for catching fish. The same can be said for weed beds. The sheer number of pike and walleye in Richter Lake is staggering. In a week you’ll catch more pike and walleye than you care to count.
MAGIC OF THE NORTH
The new outpost cabin accommodates up to eight people and the fully-equipped kitchen includes a propane stove, barbecue, deep fryer and a generator for lights and refrigerator.
A framed note from Eddie Guergis on the cabin wall reads, "I don’t consider myself ‘the owner’. In reality I am simply the caretaker of the resource. As caretaker it is incumbent upon myself to make sure the resource remains strong for future generations to enjoy." For this reason there is a no kill policy for all pike and no fish are to fly out with guests. Eddie’s note concludes by stating: “I look forward to sharing this magical spot on our globe with you.”
A week at a fly-in outpost camp offers much more than fishing. Spending time in a truly remote part of northern Ontario leaves a person relaxed and satisfied. Friends and family can bond over fishing adventures, good food and card games in the evenings. Summertime in Ontario’s north offers warm weather, magnificent sunsets and the chance to watch the northern lights dance in the night sky. Not to mention catching as many fish as you want.
