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.

    • That's awesome!  Many congrats to you both. 
    • A cougar absolutely but a puma? That might be a good time to call SSS outfitters.
    • Maybe if no one was looking
    • It hasn’t been a hay day but I’ve managed a limit of ducks each day plus a couple geese today.   Its always impressive coming out and seeing birds literally by the thousands but they aren’t fools!  Plus, anyone who hunts out here knows, you have to work to be rewarded.  Lots of scouting, lots of decoys, and lots of analyzing.  And then, lots of patients can come in handy.   40 yards out here looks 20 in Minnesota.  Its amazing.
    • Whatever it is, it looks to be over 50 and I’d like to see more. 😉😁
    • Day 1. We got back into my favorite spot around 615am...waited on the trail until sun up, plenty of bear sign around we didn’t want to push it. Legal shooting was about 715. Not very many hunters out here this year. One local told us it’s due to the bears...anyways we sat til about 10 then starting moving ridge to ridge. Didn’t see anything. I may have taken a small nap after lunch for a few mins according to my son. Around 1pm we moved to cliff edge where we could see out around 300 yards and sat until dark. About 430pm mulie does moved past us...probably 20 of them. Then all was quiet until 530 when I thought I heard a cow. My son then says ELK!! 3 cows were 40 yards from us but with the timber he couldn’t get a shot off. They then bolted back to where they came from which was a big clearing. Cole looked at me and said can I go look...I said ya... you crest the top and I will call and see if we can get them to stop. He disappeared from sight and i let off a small cow call and the woods erupted with cows making all kinds of noise and half hearted bugle.  I was waiting with anticipation for what comes next. I hear his rifle bark and then a flash of orange on the cliff above me....huge grin and I nailed hear. He waited for about 5 mins never saw the bull come out, there was 30 cows in the field and he got a dandy. Elk down on day 1 of his first elk trip. We gave each other a huge hug and some high fives! Then the work began. Finally made it back to camp around 10pm. We are worn out and ready to get back out in the morning to find that bull! Stay tuned it’s been everything we could ask for and it’s just beginning! 
    • its interesting thats for sure. puma for sure me still thinks. Leaves are about foot and a half would put the head at about 3 feet or so. Me double thinks cougarumamountainlioncatamountpuma ! 
    • Can-ya-mount a panther in Minnesota? 😉
    • be careful Eyeguy!! I would like to ice fish with you a few time this winter.
    • Well, that was pretty pathetic! Regardless of Annexstad’s health status, Morgan has to be the starter next week! Offense looked so much better with him under center. That’s about the only positive thing I have to say.
