NW Angle Guides for Lake Trout

Recommended Posts

iffwalleyes

I have never ice fished for lake trout but I have hear that it is a blast. So I am looking for some recommendation for a good ice fishing guide service or resort in the northwest angle. Also what is a good time in the winter for lake trout up there. Or do you recommend going somewhere other than the angle. <P>------------------<BR>Grip it and Rip it<P>IFFWalleyes<BR>I Fish For Walleyes<BR>iffwalleyes at yahoo.com

The Angle is the wrong side of the lake for Trout, unless you venture all the way up to Zigzag island, and North to Clearwater, Echo, etc... (i've done this, and it's a blast, but its 45 miles from the Angle) + it's all a C&R fishery up there.<P>The East side is probably where you want to focus your efforts.

Its defiantly a blast all right, but you probably want to look in the Sioux Narrows area. I have no experience with any guides in the area. Season opens on Jan 1 and that will probably also be the busiest (and the coldest). We usually go in mid-March when it starts getting warmer but then they have seen people fishing them for a few months as well.

If you want a good lake trout experience, give Paul and Chris Trinker a look at Muskie Bay resort. They are just north of Nestor Falls, ON. They are located on Crow lake, which has excellent laker fishing in the winter. Their rates are very reasonable, and they also cook you breakfast and dinner. <P>If you want some walleye and crappie fishing, they also have an access on Stevens Bay on LOW. We go there every March, and have always done very well. <P>Many days we will fish lakers the first half of the day, and then head over to LOW for evening crappies, perch and 'eyes.

Just heading there this weekend. A reminder too for that the laker season closes in Canada the end of September if memory serves me correctly. I will post on how I do.

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      Ive been out a few times as well..have tried from the harbor all the way up to boyscout...have been getting a few everytime out but has been slow for me....been trolling crawlers with big colorado blades..have caught fish on flats by barkers,between the bridges,and out from clyde area....got 6 cats accidentally while trolling boards by the community hole south west side of spirit lake...water clarity still sucks in the harbor..a bit better the farther up river u go...has it been kinda slow for everyone?????ive been doing better on fish lake.lol

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂

      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.
