More of the Same!

It was nice having Mike Ekert up to the Lodge again in June for 10 days of fishing and relaxation.

We enjoyed some fantastic action and managed to reel in a few trophies as well. In 3.5 hours one evening, we averaged 1 laker every 5.5 minutes. When you take into account landing our catch, “dental surgery”, re-rigging, and a few cold “pops”, we were busy!

One of the highlights was landing this nice Laker with an equally impressive fish dangling out of it’s mouth!

The fishing at Rutledge gets better with every season and 2023 is no different.

June 2021

It was nice to finally get back to the Lodge in June, we encountered a few surprises when we arrived which can be expected after a 2 year hiatus due to Covid travel restrictions. It’s surprising what an inquisitive bear, 2 woodpeckers and a couple of busy squirrels can do!

The fishing was as the fishing always is at Rutledge Lake! 2022 can’t come fast enough!

Season’s Greetings

With 2020 coming to a close, we welcome a new year with renewed optimism. We look forward to enjoying time at the lodge in 2021 with family and friends old and new!

Merry Christmas and best wishes for a safe and happy holiday season!

Fantastic Fishing, Weather and Company, June had it all!

The Artison Floor Fashion crew from Edmonton were a blast, Mike and Greg kept everyone well entertained. Mike may have had the biggest Laker of the trip hooked and to the boat! Unfortunately (Mike and Greg have different versions why!), a good look was all they got! What fishing trip doesn’t include a story of the “big one” that got away?
