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.

    • So reviving a dead thread ..


      The "park switch" may be the cause of the parasitic draw on some of the console equipped models, 
      it's an inexpensive switch that sends a shutdown signal to the BCM. When it goes bad the dash lights do not shut off and it drains the battery. 
      Fords fix is to replace the whole shifter assembly at around $650.00, they do not sell just the switch. 
      Here is the replacement switch with an more detailed explanation of why it happens.

      Its under e bay listing 292931561061
    • I leave it behind on purpose at times..........
    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
