I've only been on Pine Lake twice and didn't fish either time... if you canoe over to little caribou or caribou at the west end - those lakes are pretty good for fishing, including lots of eating size walleye on little caribou. It's a long paddle though, especially if its raining or a west wind..

I know a couple of guys who go up there once or twice a year. They catch BIG walleyes. I have never actually been there, but have seen the pictures.

From my understanding, pine lake is very large, deep and clear. Making walleye fishing difficult. You will want a good conture map and a depth finder. There are some reefs virtually in the middle of the lake, fish these reefs with lighted bobbers and leeches in the evenings. Let us know how you do.
