I have some guests who use Scout Bay and go every year. The have great fishing and enjoy themselves. You will have some great walleye fishing. I would make sure to go along if you were invited.

Chaff - Our group of 6 fished out of Scout Lake's outpost on McKenzie Bay several years. That was about 10 years ago, so I can not comment directly on the fishery on that end of the lake today. What I can tell you is that Roland and Liz were great hosts. I still visit them each year at the Sports Show and am welcomed as a friend. Good people on a great lake, what's not to like? If you have fished Lac Seul you know what I mean, if not you are in for a treat. By all means go, you will have a ball.

Lakeside and ozzie thanks for replying. If I had any doubts I don't now. It is 2 months away but I am getting excited already. I'll post a report when I get back.

Anybody have any tips on what to use? I will be bringing jigs and twister tails. Last time I was in Canada some guys gave us some beef heart and we cut off chunks and tipped our jigs with it. Worked real well and it was very durable.

chaffmj -

Don't waste the beef heart on the fish. Save it for yourself cause that stuff is delicious. My wife's uncle is a farmer and we tell him that any time he butchers cows, save the lickers and the tickers for us. Good eats!!!

salted minnows worked well for us the years we went up to Lac Seul and we went right around the same time frame you are going......also flat of crawlers is a good idea otherwise I would think about some gulp alive leeches and other minnows for the walleyes and bring some syclops and other various spoons for the northers

I have taken my family, wife and 2 boys, to Scout Lake Lodge for 4 years. Lac Seul is an incredible walleye lake. Scout Lake, which connects to LS, is also a very good walleye lake but more about that later. My best advice is to keep things simple but most people don't believe me. You don't have to go far to catch walleyes. Most groups seem to head 20-30 miles out into the lake and they do catch fish but you don't have to go that far. Head out into the Bay of Islands and start fishing reefs and points off the many islands. Starting depth to target is 5- 25 feet but I have seen the eyes deeper at times. If you don't catch much within 15-20 minutes move onto the next reef, hump, or point off the shore. Presentation we used was live bait on bottom bouncers. Don't be afraid to fish shallow. Be prepared to use minnows, crawlers, and leeches. Now to discuss Scout Lake. When we first started going to Scout Lake my boys were young and didn't want to stay out and fish LS all day so after shore lunch we would head in to the cabin. Rollie, who is now retired, said you could catch some nice fish off the dock. I'm thinking who comes to Canada to dock fish? Well a day later when we tried it my jaw dropped. Some evenings we would catch 30-40 eyes off the dock. They have a large dock system and the water depth at the far edge of the dock is 14 feet. That's why you need leeches because you want to slip bobber the dock with leeches which we would do up to dark. If you don't know how to slip bobber you might want to learn. Largest eye off the dock was by my son and was 29 inches, too many 24-26 inch eyes to count. Get a good map of LS and study it prior to going, it might make the time pass quicker. Search the web to find where you can get a map, if you find a site you need the northwest section of Lac Seul. I know where but not sure I can mention the HSOforum on this HSOforum. The dock fishing was incredible 2 years, mediocre one year and bad one year(I suspect due to the heat in August). Enjoy Lac Seul, fishing in the states will never be the same or as exciting.

dented boat guy,

If you could, email me the HSOforum for the map to chaffinfam4@comcast.net and thanks for the report.

    • For many years my dad, uncles, etc have been heading to the Leech Lake area every spring and fall to fish for walleyes. There are usually 8-10 guys that go. Many of them are from the Barron, Wisconsin area. Since I've never really fished in Wisconsin, thought it might be fun to head to there one of these trips. Have always heard the Hayward area is pristine. Does anyone have a favorite lake, or possibly a favorite resort in the area I should add to the list when doing some research?  Walleyes are thing these guys are after.   I know there is a Wisconsin form, but it seems kind of quiet over there, so I'm hoping to get some opinions here.    
    • Well except for the owner. He's kinda ancient!!   We did the same thing with the frig to Dave on the first camper we had.

    • I've done a few things to the old camper in the last few weeks.   First I replaced the old crank jack with a new electric jack.     Then the cooling unit on my fridge went out so I ended up just replacing the 6 cu. ft 2 way fridge with a 9.9 cu. ft. residential electric only fridge.   Next order of business is new tires. Blew one out on the way to Zumbro Falls this weekend    Pretty soon everything on this camper will be brand new! 
    •   Well I never!!!    Caught one that nice!
    •   Del be fightin' with himself again. He likes that. 
    • I now boys fight Nice!!
    • Its a great house. Yep its heavy, yep the cover is bulky compared to a single layer, yep I'd buy it again. You can always pull down a zipper or 2 (front and back doors) if you get hot. For what its worth I switched from a Clam Yukon TC (normal sides with a insulated top) both are a similar size. On below zero days in the clam I would have to use a big buddy. In the otter I use a buddy and rarely turn it on high.
    • Ya, right. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA   From a car audio site....MOTORHEADS talkin'...   FlyinMiata9,
      A shorter antenna mast captures a smaller portion of a radio broadcast station's travelling radio wave. That results in reduced radio reception capability. The reduced radio reception capability may never be noticed if only listening to nearby radio broadcast stations in the city. 

      There's no overall magic of one short antenna over another. There are some that include a signal amplifier. They can at times enhance more distant radio receptions, but usually degrade other radio reception situations, often those where there are multiple strong radio signals in the reception area.

      The overall disadvantages of antenna amplifiers for car antennas tend to be far more predominant than advantages. There are some radio signal amplifiers for car antennas that automatically switch "off" when operated in a strong signal area. That can assist clearly listening to the nearby strong radio stations, but reduce the prospect of listening to any some distance away.

      There's always a prospect of the antenna you installed being defective, or not installed properly well mounted to the car's fender for a good electrical radio reception ground plane. Check to make sure the in-line Motorola connector set is fully pushed-in inserted together. 

      A simple way to test the antenna line and system is to tune in a weak AM radio station in the daytime and then grab hold of the antenna mast to detect stronger and louder reception of that weak AM radio station. Your conductive body mass adds some to the short antenna's reception capability. There may also be an initial "thump" sound as the car's radio makes an automatic adjustment of its radio reception sensitivity. If there's no dramatic change in weak AM radio reception, look for an open or shorted electrical problem. Best bet is a full length proper antenna.
