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.

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
