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.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
