Totem Resorts - Wiley Point Lodge Fishing Report 6/21-6/26

6 posts in this topic

Had a great time like always. Headed up to International Falls Friday Evening to stay overnight there so we could cross the border into Canada on Saturday morning (Musky Opener) when it would be less busy. We fished half day Saturday then Full day with a guide Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. We then fished our way back to the main lodge in Sioux Narrows on Thursday night. We caught lots of fish including 8 muskies between 4 guys and 2 boats many northerns biggest were 38.5, 39, 40, 41 and 43" many others in the mid 30's. All muskies we caught were still in cabbage bays up in 3-4' of water and they were really following a lot. In one day we saw over 20 muskies follow in one boat. I personally caught 3 out of 8 of the muskies a 25", 44" and 48" we also caught lots of fish in the 30" range. All of my 3 were caught a back and orange Rad Dog Spinnerbait with a chartreuse blade and a lime green double twister tail. Many other fish like the 43" northern were caught on a lime green bucktail with a lime and silver Indiana blade. These seemed to be the 2 hottest lures and of course we only had one of each of them. The walleyes were not hitting the greatest but we managed our shore lunch each day and got some to bring back on the last day. We stopped at an island on the way back off of a rocky point where we got lots of big fish.. I got a 22" eye my dad got a 21" and many others in the upper teens. All the walleyes we caught were on gradual sloping rocky points or humps. We also caught lots of northerns while walleye fishing so thats a sign they are starting to move out to rocky areas. Overall it was our best trip ever as far as fishing and weather as we only had rain there for probably an hour total which almost never happens.

Can't wait until next year!

    •   Please feel free to elaborate and educate me.   With or without personal attacks. 
    • Waterfront is now called dockside and they are open.  Not sure about tournaments, we don't participate in them because, not fans of what they can do to fish populations.  All these lakes in the area have far to many tournaments which contribute to hurtful results. 
    •  You are like Charles Oakley. Except without any of the the daunting physical attributes and replaced with the voice of Fran Drescher.   Your question is garbage and that's why it's unanswered.  
    •   You can feel free to answer this question too if you like. 
    •   So conversely, decreasing the supply of labor increases the compensation for all the participants in that sector, and increases the cost of the products and services they deliver.    
    •   22 hours ago, Big Dave2 said: As a Christian you would rather see human beings starve or live a difficult and dangerous life when there are prosperous jobs sometimes only a few hundred miles away in American cities, just because that person had the misfortune of being born on one side of a political border? Does your God recognize these borders?   That's to bad. Dave's gone off the deep end and now arguing with himself!
    • I like to chop bacon into tiny pieces and add to the hamburger. But of course juicy lucy's are always good too....    
    • One of my better ones up at the lake last summer. Finely diced fresh garlic, finely diced fresh onion, hand full of shredded cheddar cheese, tea spoon Liq smoke, big spoon of Jalapeno mustered all mixed in meat. Put on a toasted onion bun with a slice of cheddar cheese and topped with sautéed morel mushrooms and bacon! At least the burger was 93% fat free!
    • Dumba possibly back tomorrow night. 2-3 more turnovers in our own zone to deal with.
    • Wow, those are over the top, guys!!!   I make all my burglars the same....splash of worcestershire, cracked pepper, bit of seasoned salt, minced onions, and a couple drops of hickory smoke all mixed in. Sometimes mix in some  coarse sharp shredded cheddar....
