Canada Trip


Recommended Posts

Just returned from Northwest Ontario. 5 days of fishing in 72 degree weather and 20 percent humidity was wonderful. I personally have been going to this camp since I was 15 and the owners are like long distance relatives now.

Pictures attached but they do not do the place justice. Eagles and bears were everywhere. Walleyes were eating better than I have ever seen them. We caught over 30 fish over 20". Best walleye was 26 1/4". Norther pike fishing was slow which is unusual. The largest we got to the boat was 36", think we lost 2 over that. Muskies are sure getting thicker on their body of water. We saw 4 while there, one of which I wish I had my chance back. Throwing a rattle trap and catching smallies, one came out of now where. My hookset was designed for smallies, not near hard enough for the big girl. After the half hearted hookset she dropped the bait and as I was mouthing the words that was a big fish I just lost, she jumped along side the boat. Probably 35 lbs cleared the water and sprayed water for 15'.

Wonderful place, better people.

If anyone would like any info on the place, please let me know.

Looks like you had a great trip Jason ! Just getting away from this heat would be worth the money spent.

We fish on the a river chain that they call three lakes. Tetu, Whitedog, and Swan. Walleye we normally target with minnows on jigheads, 1/4 all the way to half in current. Get different colors as they can be color specific with the cloud color or sun.

1/2 oz. rattletraps are a great tool for casting for walleye and smallies, always have some chrome, and red and firetiger are good also at times.

3/4 oz. rattletraps are great for pike if weeds are under control. same colors. dont forget the steel leaders, 6" black 30lb.

other pike lures, mepps from 1/2 oz to 1 1/2 oz., would not go without two muskie killer white mepps (my favorite). And always have some of the standard casting spoons in 1 oz, five of diamonds (yellow with 5 red triangles), silver and green. Spinnerbaits are great if the weeds are thick, white or char. (dont forget to wrap some wire around the rubberband that holds the skirt, one tooth and you lose the skirt). Anouther weed lure is johnson silver minnow, 1/2 to 1oz. use a green or white trailer on it and the spinnerbaits.

This list is the standard for the camp we go to, I would advise calling the camp your going to and ask.

My father took me to Ontario and Manitoba 5 times between 13 and 20. Wonderful memories of fishing for smallmouth and pike, as well as walleye for shore lunch. Your pictures brought it all back. Thanks.
