First Canada Fly In

Recommended Posts

Just looking for any suggestions on "Can't Miss" walleye or northern lures for my first trip to Canada. Will be fishing Casummit lake in Northwestern Ontario. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Where you are going the northerns still like some old reliables -- red & white Daredevles, Johnson weedless minnow (in silver, and in gold), and a No. 5 Mepps spinner (with or without bucktail). Have fun.

Forgot one of the best -- try the good old Red-Eye spoon in silver finish. Bigger the better.

What time of year are you heading up? SOmetimes early season can be very good throwing top-water near the mouths of rivers and sometimes in the shallow bays.
The fire-tiger Jack-pot can be a real fun jack attracter. When they come up to smash it on the surface, you'll think your seeing the start of World War 3!!!!!

Keep it simple for walleyes. Generally 1/4 oz/- 3/8 oz jigs (chart) tipped with a salted minnow will suffice.

Salting some minnows before heading up Nort can save extra packing and money. Give it a try.


PS. Once you have fished in Canada, you'll be forever spoiled!!!

All,
Thank you for the information. Wife gave birth to our daughter which is why it has taken so long to respond. She will be the best fisherperson in the family. Clayton, I will take all the lures you mentioned. Jim, I will be going up June 12th - 16th and will take some salted minnows as well. Was watching fishing show this weekend were guys were catching lots of musky (LOW) on the Jack-pot. Thanks...

Congrats. What did you name her? And, what are her stats?

All the best.

Clayton,
Her name is Imon Davy-Zinnea Robinson. She weighed 8lbs.3oz, and was 21inches long. Both her and mom are doing fine. Thank you.
I'm thinking about taking your advice on the Mississippi river, any suggestions on where I should put in and fish? Thanks.

Doug

Sounds like a terrific keeper. Best wishes to you and your family.

As for the Mississippi, there are guys here who can help you much more than I can -- it is years since I fished the river. However, it was once great smallmouth fishing right under the Camden bridge in North Mpls. There's a launch ramp there, too. Good luck.

    • Armageddon Constantine Inglourious Basterds(sp) Jeremiah Johnson The vacation movies   And I don't remember the name of the movie  but Nicholas Cage played a soldier in the Crusades who had to transport an accused witch to another town. Ron Perlman was his partner   Besides fishing, going to movies is another one of my joys in life  
    • I'm gonna list 5 Actors, if ya care to play, list your favorite movie that they have appeared in.   Ben Affleck  Keanu Reeves Brad Pitt Robert Redford Chevy Chase   *time out* Bonus 6th pick..... Nicolas Cage
    • I want to connect my iPhone to an old home theater receiver in my garage I am sure there is lots of ways to do this just trying to think of what would be best.   I have an iPhone with no headphone jack. Not a problem I currently put it on a dock with a speaker. That dock has a 3.5mm out that I should be able to convert into something that would work as an input to the receiver?     Here is the back of the receiver, its an old ONKYO that I had set up as a home theater many years ago. Its been collecting dust in the basement and I still have all of the speakers so I thought, hey I could really jam out in the man cave with some good speakers if I can get everything hooked up correctly   I could go 3.5mm to rca (red and white) and I think that would get me stereo and not mono?   Or could I go 3.5mm to digital optical or 3.5mm to coaxial? See all my options circled in red below?      
    • For this episode of the Duffman & Wanderer bass show I present to you the third week of August.   Wed is my usual day to get out. I figure it's before the Thurs night leagues and gives some space from the weekend warriors. Wife had a work party at our house, bonus water time for me. Too bad it was on one of "those" days. Sloooow. Talked to a regular, he agreed it was slow and chimed in "Two days ago though" Argh, that's all I needed to hear after only catching 3 bass in 5 hours. One went 4lbs, a 2ish, and a sub pounder........those little fish aren't usually where I'm fishing.   Gave it another go today...........short biters for me all week. Dealing with some pea green soup water, today was already clearer than Wed. That 4 was blind in one eye, seemed to be a lateral line strike. Maybe that's why they are short?   Had some action today at least, a smaller class of fish,  2.5 - 3 lb range. A half dozen, missed a couple, had two pop off, seen one.......20" class fish. Did the usual #@&%$,!, and casted again. I think I need to sharpen some hooks.  Still cranking, although I jig n pigged today for a tad......I never jig n pig. Forcing myself to try other things.   It's always interesting observing fellow fishermen. There's pressure everywhere these days. You recognize folks that look like they know what they are doing, and others that don't have a clue. I think I seen a 12" screen on a kayak this week!. I watch what people are using on a spot, and once they move on, I have no problem moving in. Fishing seems cyclical, some years are better than other's. That's fishing, hope you are out on the days when the "HOT" bite is going down.    Tune in next week for another episode.
    • To bad your not up here in Minnesota.  There are Ice houses on lots for sale all over this state.  You could stop in with a tape and get the dimensions you need.  
    • My thought was building an axle similar to this.   Then instead of using cranks I was going to use some 5000lb Square Bullydog jacks.   Then making a handle I could put my impact on to lift and lower the Ice House.    With having the camper, I already have the axle, electric brakes and springs.  Its just the matter of welding it up and making it work.  This is an example of the Clipper Ice, which Im trying to duplicate, just trying to find the dimensions.

I assume that they make them bigger... sorry that I don't have an answer for you. What sort of jack system are you putting in... electric or hand winch?
    • Good for you guys!  It's been an uphill battle for us so far!  Hopefully something stumbles into our baits soon.
    • I'm hunting no quota, have 3 for sure different bears maybe 4 on my bait. One is a giant boar. Headed back north tonight, will rebait an and set my stand in the morning. Only took 2 days for them to start hitting, my guess they were already in the area because of the mass quantity of acorns fall by the bait site.
