FM Members get together at Camp Manitou on Manitou Lake for Winter Lake Trout

5 posts in this topic

We are having a FM members get together at Camp Manitou (1 hr. north of I. Falls) on the weekends of Feb. 23rd and March 8th. We will be fishing mainly lake trout on Lower Manitou Lake, Dogfly Lake, and Mister Lake.

The resort is located 1/2 way between dryden and fort frances, ont. It is a summer island resort, located 6 miles from our winter parking lot, so you will need a snowmobile or 4 wheeler to get to the camp and out fishing. Transportation can be arranged if needed.

You can arrive on either thursday or friday and depart on either sunday or monday, you can stay as long as you want.

We can only take 18 people at a time so pick out which weekend works for you and call us to get on the reservation list, we are booking on a first come first serve basis.

If you have any questions, call the number below, e-mail, or reply to this post.

See you on the ice,

Matt

HI FISKYKNUT,

I ENJOY READING YOUR POSTS ON THE LOW SITE, ONE OF THOSE WITH GOOD HONEST INFO.

YES, WE COULD PUT SOMETHING TOGETHER. AS OF RIGHT NOW, EVERYTHING IS STILL 4 WHEELERS OR SLEDS AS OUR ICE IS NOT SAFE FOR VEHICLES. BEING A MUCH DIFFERENT FISHERY THEN LOW, WE HAVE 1,500 ISLANDS, LOTS OF CURRENT, SO OUR ICE TAKES LONGER THEN LOW TO GET DRIVABLE., SO MAYBE YOU WERE THINKING SLEDS, OR WERE YOU THINKING BY VEHICLE., AND WERE THINKING OF A DAY TRIP OR A OVERNIGHTER., ALSO MAYBE YOU WANT TO DO A LITTLE TRADEOFF, YOU SHOW ME LOW (I HAVE FISHED IT ALOT, BUT NOT WITH SOMEONE WHO KNOWS LIKE THEIR BACKYARD), THEN I WILL SHOW YOU RAINY.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.
    • h8go4s
      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
