2019 Anglers Kingdom Review updates camp

While we were waiting for the MNR approval to repair our portage after the fire Hayden stepped up again and we did repairs on the main dock and extended our boardwalk all the way to cabin 1. So now we have a boardwalk from one end to the other. We also did some repairs to the dock in front of cabin 2.  It is hard to recognize but we removed about 30 stumps and a dozen trees from the front of cabin 1 and 2. 
 We might be recovering from fires in 2018 and 2019. I might be extremely sick the past 15 years. And we don’t have anyplace to accommodate workers. But whenever we get an opportunity we still manage to make improvements every year. I have to admit it is very rewarding working with Hayden on projects like this I just wish we didn’t have to rebuild everything we just built. Next summer we hope to finish the railing on cabin 2 deck. Hayden and I completed dozens of smaller projects this spring and summer. Our guests notice our efforts and appreciate them. 

2019 Anglers Kingdom Review portage repairs

24 hours miracle.

We were plenty busy recovering from 2018 fire and the forest fire in July of 2019 only upped the anti further. Hayden once again stepped up and we loaded our excavator which we purchased in the fall of 2018 to clean up last years fire mess. Now it was floating once again across Nungesser Lake.
And once again we had mere days to get the job done. The MNR did not want us to start repairs until they approved the work permits. We were like runners on the starting blocks as we waited for the paperwork. We made certain to cover all the bases and all the environmental impact protocols. Learned a lot once again. It is still very much a work in progress but we were moving our guests and gear across the portage in less than 24 hours.

Unfortunately pushing myself that hard left me in pretty rough shape. I put it off as long as possible but by late August I was in the emergency room and being medicated to Thunder Bay for test on my heart.

This was our 24 foot pontoon boat. It was very difficult to find flat bottom pontoons. They ride up out of the water like a Jon boat. So much more efficient than round pontoons. Took me years to find a 24 footer.

All the improvements we made thru the recession. All the work and money we scratched together to keep improving our infrastructure. For some reason the fires keep attacking our infrastructure.
Another HUGE project to get our boardwalk rebuilt.
Huge project just to clean up the mess.
Really getting tired of these set backs.

Red Lake Ontario Canada fishing report Anglers Kingdom biggest ever

Mike Proska  and Eric returned for their 6th time with a few “not yet believers” . It only took a few days. Evenafter a major cold front took temperatures from 85 to 40. A 32 inch walleye a bunch of 24-28 inches and a 45 inch pike  along with hundreds more fish of less stature and they are true believers in the outstanding fishery of Nungesser Lake. “Never would have believed I could catch so many walleye in one day” “ it made me a better fisherman simply with the amount of practice I was able to get.”

Why do THEY always catch the biggest fish at Anglers Kingdom

Children and Grandchildren accompanying their parents and grandparents are creating lifelong memories and gaining valuable life lessons with out even realizing it. So are the adults! I have always said how rewarding it is to see my guests catch the largest pike or largest walleye of their lives while fishing at Anglers Kingdom. It is even more meaningful seeing the look on the face of a young person holding that fish of a lifetime. Many people fish elsewhere for 20 or  30 years and never catch a true trophy size Pike or Walleye. 
But the question of why the youngsters always seem to catch the biggest fish of the group? Well the old saying goes “ its how you hold your mouth”

Precious Memories fishing with Grand daughter

Quincy with her Grampa Matt.  “ it’s becoming a tradition” and more grandkids are joining the group.
Jack Beavers started visiting Anglers Kingdom the second year we opened. Then sons and daughters joined in. Now we have granddaughters and grandsons.
