This photo makes me smile! It doesn’t get much better than this! Fresh walleyes pulled out of the lake, filleted, dragged through spices, and cooking in a little peanut oil over a camp fire on an island! Heat up a can of Bush’s baked beans and you have a meal fit for a king!! It’s making me hungry.
It’s hard to believe it’s already December. The good thing about that is, it means we are one day closer to the walleye opener in the spring!!! Can you tell that cabin fever is starting to set in??? LOL
I decided to post some camp photos from the past (40+ years ago). It is interesting how fast time flies…
Below is an Em Kay Camp brochure printed in the 70’s:
The next photo (early 1970’s) actually made it to the brochure, but is in color. Ben Taylor the camp owner is the guy on the left helping hold up that big northern…
The next camp photo is really old! I’m guessing late 1950’s, early 1960’s. In this one my grandfather Vernon “Ben” Taylor is at the wood stove cooking sliced potato’s. Doc Holland is behind him with Swede Pearson in the background. They are in cabin 5, the shelf behind Swede is still hanging on the wall!!
The next photo (1970’s) is showing Grandpa “Ben” on the right with Bud Lesan tending to some meat on the grill and the main lodge as the backdrop.
The final picture (mid to late 70’s) is showing Ben Taylor (in hat) crouching in front of a mess of northerns with his hand around his beloved husky “Chinook”. I am old enough to remember uncle Ben owning that dog . Chinook loved to be petted and usually got a lot of attention from folks in the camp.
If you have any other classic Em Kay Camp photos, send them on to me to post on the blog.
The Big Walleye of the year. This was the biggest walleye caught on Camping lake this year. It came in at 27 inches. Congrat’s to Pat for being the 2013 fall Sherriff.
