transportation provided canadian fishing trip ideas?

Recommended Posts

Myslef and a couple guys are looking to take a fishing trip up north either next May or June. who has been where and what is the best trip to take? It would be nice if transportation was provided with meals and boats etc. i have been looking at the temple bay lodge packages and that looks decent to me. We want to catch muskies, northerns and walleyes.

Been at the duty free when the temple bay bus comes in and it is chaos. I've never been there but I would be concerned about being crowded around a bunch of doofi who party more than they fish. I've done the fly in 5 or 6 times and it was great. The time in the car on the way up is a great time to decompress, visit with your buddies etc. Only hassle was that the fly in places wanted you there at about 7 a.m. so you either drove all night and killed yourself or ended up staying in a motel someplace.

One more thing - Their transportation packages have a very apealing price. But then you have to wonder when you compare it to KaBeLo or Anderson Lodge on Lac Seul - what are you getting at each. The remote outpost camps are pretty tough to beat. If you find the right spots you can easily catch 25_ walleye a day per man.

When I went we always went the first week of July or thereabouts. I don't know about the fishing earlier in the year but if you go too early you may find things a bit chilly.

I have been to Temple Bay three times. Here is what they offer. The Home Depot in Fridley is where most people catch the bus because you can leave your car there the entire trip. The bus ride is o.k. because people bring movies, and they provide beer, pop, juice. There is a few stops along the way to stretch and switch drivers. Once you get to Temple Bay, they unload your gear and bring it to your cabin. You can go and have dinner and head out to fish. They provide you with breakfast each morning and you can eat as much as you want. They provide a bag lunch every day and if you want shore lunch just tell them the night before and they supply everything you need(except for the fish!) After a day of fishing, pull the boat to your designated slip and the boat boys are there to take your fish and clean them for you. The boats are all gassed and wiped down when you are ready to fish each morning. The cabins are basic, but clean. The bar area is nice and they have a TV, dart boards, pool table, etc. There is no fishing after dark, so keep that in mind. Eagle Lake is a large lake so get a map and a Lowarance H2O would be ideal. Most people that go there is for the fishing. The three times I have been there I haven't had one issue with people wanting to drink instead of fish. Let me know if you have any more questions. Plus the new flyer has our neighbor on it with a nice 32" walleye he caught there last summer!

      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.

      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.

      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.

      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.

      Those are some fine specimens. Great job

      I'm quite shocked to hear that a walleye tournament is still doing a live weigh in.  Virtually every event these days around here is doing a catch, photo, and release format.   Regardless, nice work.  Congrats.

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"

      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!

      I had a good start to the season on opener. Fishing was slow but consistent. I had four eaters in the box by lunch dragging perch raps. Crappies were biting. I haven't been up since so don't know how things have changed since then, but I'm sure the walleye continue to migrate out into the main basins.
