Lac Seul vs Wabigoon and Dinorwic

8 posts in this topic

We are planning a trip to Canada and were going to go for Lac Seul for sure. Mostly for walleye. but were going to go 1 full day for muskie. and now we are having second thoughts From what I hear Muskie is a tough go unless you go to the northeast end of the lake. Option 2 seems like Wabigoon and Dinorwic would give us a much better shot at muskie. Question is how good is the walleye fishing in those 2 lakes, Wabigoon and Dinorwic?

One of the mods on here, muc33, is fishing Lac Suel right now. He'll be home this weekend and bring your post to his attention.

If your main traget species is walleye, you are best off with Lac Seul. The walleye fishing is better hands down for size and numbers, the muskies are tough, but I have a friend that fished Wabigoon all last summer and never caught a muskie. Very dirty water on Wabigoon, hard to even see a follow.

Superbee is right on about the walleye. The walleye on Wabigoon is pretty decent but doesn't come close to Lac Seul. I don't fish muskies very often but my experience and what I get from friends is that Wabigoon is a good musky lake. Not to far from Wabigoon is Eagle Lake which still does not come close to Lac Seul for walleye but might be a nice compromise for the two species.

Looks like Lac Seul it will be!! second week of Aug. Either Fishermans Cove or Lac seul resort. What can we expect for walleye that time of year, depth wise and bait preferance. Has anyone stayed at either one of those resorts? Is there such a thing as a detailed map of that area?

not sure what you looked at, but I got one for around $25.00 for Lac Des Mille for or trip in two weeks...? It looks to me that you can buy all four quadrants for $100.00, Whick of corse you don't need. If your staying at Fisherman's Cove all you would need is the NW section.

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   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.
