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.

Go North

      Went up north today with @eyeguy 54 and we found plenty of ice if the access would have been better we would have driven out. We fished hard as both of us have similar fishing styles. We jump hole to hole picking off the aggressive fish with plastics. The wind did not do us any favors but we still caught a good number of fish. If eyeguy took photos maybe he will post em. Thank you eyeguy for the call I wanted to get out fishing today.

      Went to a small lake up around Mille lacs lake and found 20-28 inches of ice. The access looked like some busted it up, so eyeguy and I walked out. We caught bluegills and crappies on plastics. It was windy and cold but we got a few nice ones.
