Well, the trip was simply refreshing, with a great time in the Canadian Wilderness. Went up to Lac Seul, actually we were down by Hudson and fished mostly Lost Lake, but still considered part of Lac Seul. We did take a 40 mile boat ride 1 day up to the Southern portion of Lac Seul to fish.

The first day we had pretty decent weather and the walleyes were aggressive enough I was able to pick a few up on plastics. After Monday, however, the fronts came in with East winds and the walleyes wanted nothing but minnows. We caught plenty of fish as a group, but I can't say it was lights out action the whole time. The large majortiy of the fish ran in the 15" range, but my dad picked up 3 in the 23-25.5" range. We had a couple more than topped 21" in the group as well. I would like to make it up there in June sometime. Plenty of northerns, but most of them were in the 20" range. Largest I got was 30-32". Did a little smallie fishing the last day and picked up a couple of those as well. Here are a few pics:

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
