From Minnitaki near Sioux Lookout. Fishing was fantastic. Walleyes from 2' to 40'. Big pike in the shallows, lakers active in 40'. Smallies on the rocks. Big fish for the week; walleye - 26.5", pike - 38"; smallie - 18.5"; laker - 38". Lots of each species including some tasty whitefish. If you have ever been thinking about eating some of those whitefish but were afraid to try, put them on the grill with butter and garlic. Even our finiky eaters thought it was awesome. 3 whitefish came home with us.

Weather was typical, rain, snow, sunburn. None of it affected the fishing other than frozen hands don't do well vertically jigging. Still need to find those "perfect" fishing gloves. Wind seemed to be an issue more this year than ever before.

Leeches, crawlers, and minnows all worked, but minnows were by far the best. Vertical jigging.

Hot artificial was a 4" ringworm, red and chartreuse. Caught it all on those, including my 38, 37, and 36 inch pikes.

Food was hot, beer was cold, and now I need to figure out when, where, and how I am going to get back to Ontario this year. Good luck to all. Have a safe trip.

As an aside, those of you taking the 502, they have really improved that road. Probably in near perfect condition. We did see a sobering reminder of either too much speed or too little sleep on the 502. A mangled Lund ProV and its tow vehicle. Slow down. People were passing us at 75 mph. Even at the posted speed limit, I had to apply brakes sharper than I preferred for bear and moose crossing the road.

Drive slow and get to where you are going in one piece. Switch drivers often. Be SAFE!!!

Great report! Does multispecies get any better than that?

Thanks Prov1900

    • If ya'll did what you were supposed to and was collecting concurrent pensions from the state,county, city and township and toss in a pipe fitter pen for honesty, this would be a non issue here. Dummies.     #windycityway
    • You know I'm kidding!
    • It really doesn't matter if Trump fails to concede, his party, that's already deserting, will do it for him. 
    • Let's keep one thing in mind if we want to revisit the FL vote recount:  Mr. Gore did not start whining and crying rigged and fraud two months before the actual election. If was only after it appeared the count was incorrect that Gore and his party asked for a recount. And as I recall it was Gore himself who finally said "okay, enough is enough, end it." There is little doubt in my mind the final count in this years presidential election is going to be so lopsided in favor of Mrs. Clinton there will be no legitimate reason for a recount.  
    • What was the popular vote? What was the Electoral vote? Why did they want the recount in Florida?   Wouldn't  you also want that recount from the State that cost you the Election with many votes being questioned? (CHADS) What was the difference in Florida in popular vote?   When everything was decided in the correct way Gore did accept and said so.
    • Uh, from the taxpayers of various types of course.  Or was that some sort of rhetorical question for effect?  
    • Y'all do recall al gore  and his reaction to being defeated.  He refused to concede for weeks after the election.  Wanted to keep counting and recounting until he won.    And the Democrat party refused to accept the results for years... 
    • From the middle and upper middle income people!
    • $5 says the election won't even be close enough to demand a recount and the crybaby whining will be unprecedented.
