Lac Seul - East End lodging

9 posts in this topic

I am looking at a possible musky trip to Lac Seul. Does anyone have any recomendations for places to stay close to Chamberlain Narrows, the east end, or any good musky areas?

Thanks

Never stayed there but that is one of the places I have researched and would like to fish.

If you want to stay at chamberlain narrows anderson's has two or 3 outposts that get good reviews but spendy. Ojibway Outfitters is the only resort/lodge in the area. Pretty mixed reviews about that place lots of reading available on walleye central. The best option to me looked like house boats. I think lac seul floating lodges and sioux lookout houseboats were the two places. One in hudson and one by sioux lookout I think.

Moosehorn lodge appears to be the only musky oriented lodge on that end of the lake. Appears they are quite a boat ride from CN but there is plenty of photo proof they get some big skis from lac seul. Not sure if they make long runs daily or what.

Those are the ones I have found.

DeBo was pretty much right on with what I was thinking. Ojibway Outfitters (has a different name now I think) is right in the narrows and gets mixed reviews. My Bro-in-law has stayed there about 20 times and loves it but others do have their issues with the place or its owner. I have been there a few times when we running short on bait on a houseboat and he can be a little caustic. You will have to boat in to get to them. They will pick you up in a big boat to haul your gear or you if you are not bringing a boat.

I have stayed at Moosehorn a couple of times but never made the trip up there with them. That said, if you are o.k. with the long boat ride they will put you on the muskies. Greg is a excellent guide and they will get you up there in a big, fast 21' boat when you use a guide. They do take care of their guest well.

I have also taken houseboats that way a half a dozen times and think that is the way to go. We have always been treated well by either outfit sending houseboats out of Hudson.

Ojibway Outfitters goes by the name- Lac Seul Outposts. The owners are Ken & Brenda.

I've been to CN several times. I'm a walleye fisherman, but we were up there one time when a group of about 15 musky fishermen from the Chicago area were at the camp. They beat the area hard for a week and came up with some nice big fish. Not very many, but they were nice. (I saw the photos) Fishing that area is like most musky fishing -- work hard and you might get a big payoff. I wouldn’t say Ken, the owner, would be the guy I would hire to be a motivational speaker, but he provides a reasonably good level of service and the walleye & northern fishing is about as good as it can get.

As an alternative the Manitou is a good musky fishery. I know a group of guys that fish every year and they do very well. There is lake trout and smallmouth fishing as well.

lip ripper - I don't know for sure yet. A lot of factors go into when and where we go on our trip but usually it is between July 6 and August 12 sometime.

I am looking for a cheap place to stay. I don't need to be catered to since I won't be in camp other than to sleep and maybe eat.

We used to fish there in the fall.

We've always houseboated it. If you get enough guys together its still the cheapest way to go.

I could point you to a few areas if your going later in the year. Also try trolling, seems to work pretty good.

If you are looking for a cheap DIY and have your own rig camping at Abram Lake Park is hard to beat. It is a run everyday, 17 miles by road to the landing and 20-30 miles to get to the bigger water. I'm not a musky fisherman so maybe there are some spots closer to the Deception Bay landing(we,ve had a few encounters in Sen Bay fishing walleyes). Camping is about $35/ night for two guys and 1 rig. It's my favorite destination bare none!

    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.

    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
