Our Conservation Policy:
I've fulfilled a lifelong dream by opening this camp and sharing it with all of my many new and old friends, it truly is a special place. However I don't consider myself "the owner", in reality I'm simply the caretaker of the resource. As caretaker it's incumbent upon myself to make sure the resource doesn't get depleted and is there for future generations to enjoy.
To that end I would ask that all of my friends and guests observe a 100% no kill policy on all pike. I believe this is the only way to ensure the quality of the experience. In addition proper handling of these magnificent fish is imperative. I've provided each boat with a landing cradle to help assist in the handling of larger fish. Please try to keep the fish in the cradle at boatside while unhooking. Wire cutters, long nosed pliers and jaw spreaders are essential tools for a quick a safe release. If the hooks are burried too deeply please utilize wire cutters to quickly cut your hooks and remove the lure. When your partner is ready with the camera quickly lift the fish for a photo being very careful to support the fish underneath as well. Vertical holds can damage internal organs! Please use a glove as well when hoisting the fish in the boat for a photo. Your grip will be enhanced and the risk of dropping these large, strong fish in the boat will be minimized. Return the fish as quickly as possible to water to be revived. If they seem particularly weak utilize the cradle until their strength has returned. If everyone uses these handling techniques it's my hope that most of the delayed mortality caused by improper handling will be eliminated.
Eat as many walleye as you wish 18" or under while you're staying at the camp, but none fly out with you.
The area abounds with moose and I'll be working closely with area biologists to determine a safe and healthy number of animals to be harvested each year. My goal is to maintain the current vibrant levels of game and that will mean a finite number of hunters permitted to harvest animals each year.
It's my hope that all current and future guests will endorse my conservation policy with open arms. It is after all in everyone's best interest.
I look forward to sharing this magical spot on our globe with you.
