L & M 2009 Fly In Ontario, Canada Fishing Reports

120 posts in this topic

I reported our reports last season and plan to do it again on this site. Time is approaching when our first fishermen start to roll in. Will advise soon as I get some reports to post. What I intend on doing is reporting just on this thread of the reports. How I gather the reports, when we fly the group out at the end of the trip, they fill out a report and Ill post what they have to say. Stay tuned if interested.

Hello Paul, I can not say exactly. Depends exactly where from Pickle your talking. We've got camps straight to the west of Pickle and as of yesterday one of our camps was completely out and the other was about 1/2 out. Lake St. Joe still had plenty of ice out in the big open basins. Very windy though today should be breaking more ice up. Last night our Dobie lake camp called via sat phone, about 8 oclock pm had about 6 inches of snow up to that point.

I'm heading up near Sioux Lookout Friday. I heard the ice just got out last week. They had high winds and snow up there. Looking forward to some good fishing.

Onemore,

We just got back from Sioux Lookout. Fished the Crooked Rapids area. The fish are still spawning. The water is cold (40 degrees). If the weather warms up you will do well. There are some nice fish to be caught right now.

Thanks! It seems like a colder spring so far this year. In years past this has meant bigger pike and slower walleye action. If the water warms a bit it could be crazy up there. I can't wait.

As the week went on the snow melted and the water warmed, fishing got better. Towards the end of the trip we boated anywhere from 20-60 walleyes per day. The pike were in with the walleyes and where small.

Just got back last night from the Sioux Lookout area. The weather was cold and wet. Surface water temps were 48. Deeper water temps were low to mid 40's.

The walleye were everywhere in 6-12 ft of water. Small mouth bass were just coming in to spawn and were hungry.

Norther Pike were in 2 to 18 ft of water and super hungry! Suspending Husky jerk-baits fished slow with long pauses were deadly on all three species! It was incredible fishing!

Lake: Shabumeni

Dates: 5/24/09-5/31/09

Group: Dueling

Report: Superb fishing, Superb camp with top notch facilities. Could not find a better operation (20 years of trips coming north). Walleye fishing was spectacular in the outlet with 100 fish per man common! The woodchuck in camp kept the older AARP members of our camp entertained through out the week. Nice work Larry, Mary, and Shane! We will return!!

Lake: Austin

Dates: 5/25/09-5/31/09

Group: Buddenhagen

Report: Weather was cold and windy most days which made fishing interesting. The main inlet to the lake produced fewer fish than other years due to the weather conditions, but most points held fish. The inlet did net Shane his biggest northern to date. 42 inch, wow! The portage lakes were rock solid again this year netting the most fish and the largest walleye. Shane also topped his biggest walleye with one just shy of 26 inches. Thanks L & M
