Lac Seul Muskie

11 posts in this topic

We are planning a trip to Lac Seul in mid August. And are trying to figure out what resort to go to. We will be mainly fishing for walleye, but we will try one full day for muskie. Are there any parts of the lake that are better then others?

Also where can a person find a map of Lac Seul, Haven't had much luck finding one, or is there possibly a chip of lac seul for the GPS/locator?

As far as I know, the majority of the muskie are found on the east and ne side of the lake. Most resorts will have maps available for purchase, or a bait shop in Sioux Lookout. As far as a map chip, the navionics 2009 has a pretty basic map of lac seul. I think the contour lines are every 10 feet or so.

Chamberlin Narrows (east end) has a reputation as a good spot for some muskie hunting. There is no shortage of walleyes in that area either.

I have fished the central part of the lake and there are NO muskies in that part of the lake. 20 years of casting muskie baits at northerns and we didnt see even 1 muskie. Chamberlain is where it is at and I am not aware of any resorts up there. You would have to houseboat it I think.

Moosehorn Lodge and also Lac Seul Outposts are two camps that are on the Eastern part of the lake and do quite a bit of Musky fishing

I was up there 5 or 6 years ago, and we stayed at the outpost in Chamberlain Narrows. Only caught 1 while we were up there but wife brought an absolute pig to the boat. We bought the map in Souix Lookout.

The northest end is where you want to look for muskies. Wapesi bay gets hit hard for Muskies, there are absolute monsters up there. Lac Seul Outposts has a boat-in resort in Chamberlain Narrows. Also Anderson's Lodge has outpost cabins up there and the houseboat services out of Hudson, ON can get you there. Otherwise guides from Moosehorn Lodge frequent the area or just boat in from a public launch outside of Sioux Lookout (Deception Bay. Its a hour+ boat ride to those waters from the public launch. That is basically the options. IMO best choice in order is Lac Suel Outposts, Anderson's outpost, houseboat. Rediculous walleye fishing there.

We took a houseboat through the Chamberlain Narrows area often. Great fishing, great area. My bother-in-law has stayed at Lac Seul Outposts for years and loves it there. I have also stayed at Moosehorn on Pelican and boated up into Lac Seul. A couple of guides through Moosehorn will make sure to put you on some muskies.

I too have stayed at all those places... As a matter of fact it was with the fishyguy. You will not be disappointed with any of them. Moosehorn does a lot of Muskie fishing. Be sure to book Greg Marino or Colin Gosse to take you out.

    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one.
