Back from Cochrane Air!!!

Recommended Posts

Well,

We are back from our fly in trip with Cochrane Air Services. We flew into Yesterday Lake last Friday. WHAT AN AWESOME TRIP once again!! The fishing was totally unreal for 8 days. There were 4 of us and we caught about 2,200 fish......... I caught the biggest walleye at 11 pounds.. 33 inches on Tuesday. We also caught 5, 7-8 pound walleye, and alot of 24 inchers.... The pike were mostly smaller this year, but we did end up with 3, 15 pounders through out the trip.... The weather was crazy as usual, rain, snow, sun, wind, etc..... Cochrane Air is a first class outfitter. I will post some pictures in a few days, as I am back at work and tired as hell............................................

 

PS...We fished from June 5th untill June 12th... Like I said, TOTALLY AWESOME..

 

Also, The Pittsburgh Penguins are the CHAMPS!!!! WOOOOOOHOOOOOO

I havent even scene pics yet, but this sounds like an ideal week of fishing, except for the snow of course.

It was a heck of a trip. We used 120 dozen of minnows, and a pound of leeches... They were not hitting the crawlers this week.

 

Oh yea, we fished evryday from 8 am till about 2 pm.. Ate lunch, then back out at 4 pm untill 11 pm.. About 12 hours a day.. We also had time to drink 16 cases of beer... Great stuff!!

Wicked! It seems Yesterday has trophy walleye potential. When I flew in there a couple years back in Sept the numbers weren't that high but my buddy caught a 10-11lb walleye as well.

Looking forward to the pic's!

      Has anyone fished any lakes serviced by Air Ivanhoe? Can't seem to find much fishing information on their lakes. Their cabins look great but it's all about the fishing. Any info on any of their lakes would be appreciated.
