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.

    • DonBo, good luck on your bow quest,  your father raised you well!  What a great way to celebrate life by sharing a hunt together.
    • My family has LIfe 360 on our phones. It allows you to know exactly where that phone is at all times. My teenage kids were not to hip on the idea until my wife explained that you either have the app or you don't have a phone. It already saved a phone. My son dropped his phone in the middle of a bean field last summer.  We were able to use the app to drive a wheeler to within 10ft. Well worth it.
    • My personal opinion on the backup pumps is that they are a stop gap to buy you enough time to minimize the amount of water that backs up during a torrential storm while you get your primary pumps on a generator.    Obviously the biggest factor is to figure out how much water can enter the drainage system during the heaviest downpours and that can help you decide what gpm you need to stay ahead of the water. If you get a bigger backup pump then you will burn through a battery faster.    If you don't get a lot of water in the system ever and if the sump pump only runs periodically during even heavy rains and wet weather then you can get more run time from a smaller system.    There really isn't a way to say exactly what you need to be 100%safe unless you know exactly what flows you have.
    • Already doing many of these.  It's slowly improving.
    • I was just getting some info on this unit: http://www.zoellerpumps.com/en-ap/product/63-basement-sentry#features     I am sure you could hook up multiple batteries as well
    • Sunday, pulled a group of 3 toms from about 500 yds across private into the public only to hang up at 60 yds. We worked them for 2 hrs and they never got in front of the blind. They finally got closer, but instead of going in front of the blind, they got behind the blind at about 5 yards inside the woodline and could hear them stepping on twigs. Man what a rush. Sadly, they walked back onto private and out of our lives LOL. Kinda wish I was hunting with a shotgun!   3 or 4 gobblers were rattling off behind us in the woods in the morning and shut up by 7. The 3 that we got to come in from private were to the other side and they didn't gobble til they were close enough to see/hear our setup. Those two hours were between 8 and 10. Will try again.
    • They will lose 90 to 100 games again this year. They do not have the pitching to even get to 500. Santana will be our lone all-star and be traded before end of year. Hope something changes but they did not add anything for starters or offensive so until they do we will get the same junk. Really sucks cause i love watching and listening to the games all summer long.
    • % of people that have picked that person. 
    • Some rainy river monsters! 61" 60" and a 54"! Have a look!  
    • Many big sturgeon boated this past week again.  Has been a great year for sturgeon so far up and down the river.  Fish different holes until you find fish.  Use a 3 ounce no roll sinker, a 1-1.5 foot leader, and a circle hook loaded (called a sturgeon rig) with frozen shiners and crawlers for best results. Anchor boat up stream of a deeper hole and pitch sturgeon rig into the hole. Heavy equipment is preferred.  Pike fishing is going good right now in shallow bays and on the Rainy River. Best methods so far are using buzz baits or lying a frozen cisco on bottom with a hook and weight(similar to a sturgeon rig but with less weight).   Pike are active in bays. The lake and bays and water starting to warm up and pike are being caught.  Pike are open all year up on LOW.   Up at the NW Angle, the ice is gone and it's open water.  Remember, walleyes open May 13th, pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN and sturgeon fishing through May 15th and then again July 1st.
