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:

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
