Northern Light Lake - Ontario

1 post in this topic

Spent the week before last up at the cabin on Northern Light Lake (ON). By the end of the week the lake level was up about seven inches from earlier in May, still about 25 inches below normal. The Ham Lake fire made it up both sides of Trout Bay, skipped over to Moose Island and into some other islands in Moose Bay. Sure looks a lot different seeing miles of shoreline, just black and gray.

Most of the walleye action was close to the river up in the north end of Trafalgar Bay, didn't find any out in the main lake to speak of. Caught some whitefish still shallow. The smallmouths continue to grow, several 20 inches plus, the largest was slightly over 22" caught by my 8 year old nephew.

Heading back up next week to spend the week of the fourth, hopefuuly the walleye action on the main lake will be up and running by then.

      How do you even get on this lake to ice fish?  Seems to be surrounded by Private land.

      Well Friday was a little slow picked up some nice gills here and there no crappies. Sat morning picked up a couple 10 inch gills and a couple more for the bucket here and there. Sat night 930 the crappies came through I caught 17 biggest was 12. Sunday picked a few more gills up for the bucket before heading off to a different lake for walleye. again fish wanted nothing to do with minnows only caught one with them. All other fish caught on a tungsten orange and green glow tipped with only a wax worm.   we were in 12 fow the sunfish were 2 off the bottom crappie cruising 4 off bottom Side note tried walleye tonight missed 3 of them! Now I remember why I don't walleye fish much stupid things

      I had the showdown as a hole hopping sonar but found I used my LX5 a lot more.  I went to the 7 and did not like it because it was bulky and hard to get used to both hopping holes and room inside one man Frabile.  Sold the 7 and bought another LX5 and do not see me going back to any other.  I have a wheel house and found is the only time I used the 7.  If you do a lot of fishing outside and like to move around.  I would stick with the 5, I now own two of them and don't see me using anything else.
