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.

    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
    • forgot I made this post, I fished a lake here in SD last weekend that has a sunken road way and bridge completely submerged. Its gotten to the point the concrete has fallen apart under water but you can still see most of the structure in tact but also some rebar etc.   I wanted to get a screen capture but as usual that exact spot was popular and already occupied with other boats playing bumper boats to anchor and fish near and I didn't want to intrude on their fishing space just for a picture. 
    • Good post and discussion. I'm convinced not more than 10%, and that might be stretching it and I include myself in the 90%, know how to use their equipment. Every fishing site is loaded with similar posts.
