Outstanding second week!

My apologies in advance for not getting to this sooner. Something about a 3 day trip home to northern Indiana (5 with travel days), tends to make me fall even further behind. Well worth the brief time away from camp as I was home to see our oldest daughter Megan graduate high school and to retrieve Milissa and Sienna the Wonder Dog and head back to camp. It was an outstanding week in camp for guests who provided a lot of good reports on their successes throughout the week. None more successful or impressive than Gar’s crew again this year that boated over 1,600 walleye and northern pike AGAIN this year. That’s two consecutive years that these guys have caught over 1,600 fish during their week. One hundred and sixty three dozen minnows later they were ready to head back to Wisconsin. Yes, that is correct 163 dozen minnows!

Of course they weren’t the only successful group in camp last week as Randy’s crew from Wichita was here again and as always caught a bunch of fish and of everything from big walleyes, to pike, to over 70 smallies each day they targeted them. There was only one new crew in camp with us during the week and Gary’s party spent a lot of time casting for pike and smallies and found that very limited time was needed walleye fishing to catch the walleyes they wanted for supper. They enjoyed the camp and are planning to return next year.

In case you missed it on our Facebook page, we were able to complete the roadside dock prior to my departure back to Indiana. We were targeting to get it done opening week, but that little cold snap (snow) sort of knocked the ambition for the project out of the way. Despite the delay, it’s completed now, looks great and is much more structurally sound than the old dock which was absolutely battered by our high water most of last season.

Need to run for now, still trying to catch up from the few days away. Week three fishing has been excellent also and I hope to get caught up to the point that I have some photo’s to share.

  1. How many are in Gar’s crew? That sounds like a huge amount of Walleye and Northerns. Hope there are a couple of fish left in the lake when we get up there on the 27th. I am sure we will catch a few.

    • Bob, they had six guys fishing from three boats. Two private boats and a camp rental. It is a HUGE amount of fish, and certainly not every group that comes to camp is able to do this. IT is however possible on our lake under the right circumstances. These guys fish hard, they fish live bait and they have been with us now for 6-7 years so really starting to understand the fishery. We have a crew of four in camp this week (long time veterans over 40 yrs in camp) that have caught just over 600 fish since they arrived on Saturday. Again, most groups cannot do this, but it IS possible here.

Peffley's Wilderness Camp is a family owned and operated camp. Dave has been fishing Wabaskang Lake for over 25 years and was previously a guest of this camp for 12 years prior to purchasing the camp in 2005. I am a proud supporter of our military and offer a nice discount during the month of July to our guests who have also served. I have three daughters ranging in ages from 16-21 who spend much of their summer with us in camp and have totally embraced the wilderness experience we offer. They have for years referred to it as the "best summer experience ever".

While rarely necessary on our lake, because I do have a very good working knowledge on how and where to fish on Wabaskang Lake and our portage waters, I will guide groups if asked to. Otherwise, I am always happy to share information with our guests and provide them well marked lake maps so they can start catching fish their first day in camp.

I pride myself on running a very clean and well managed camp with your satisfaction our top priority. Many guests who have fished from this camp for over 20 years, and several more that have fished here for over 30 years and even some over 40 years.
