I'm headed up to Lac Seul in a few days.  I'll be there June 19-24, staying at Chamberlain Narrows.  This will be my 6th time going up there, but I haven't been there for 5 years.  Is anyone else going up?  Anyone already been there this year?

About 6-11 years ago when I went to lac Seul for 5 years in a row, there was always some good conversations on here prior to my trip.  I was surprised that no one responded that they were going to Chamberlain Narrows this year.  However now that I am back I will share a little about our trip. 

We fished 4 days and had a great trip! Lac Seul is almost in a league of its own when it comes to walleyes. We went to Scaler Lake one day and caught a mixed bag of sizes and several northerns. We spent most of our time going North of camp.  As a group (5 of us were there 4 days, 2 guys were there for only 2 days), our largest walleye was 28, we had a couple that were 26, 4 that were 25, maybe 8 in the 23-24 range and too many to count that were 20+.  Fish were mostly caught 14-22 feet, with around 17-19 being the best.  We primarily used a jig and minnow, but we also had good luck with leeches and crawlers. 

If you're headed up there, have a great trip!

You are right on that being in a league of it's own. You can find eyes everywhere on that lake. We went there for years (Ear Falls side), but changed to Minnitaki on a buddies' recommendation. We haven't been back to Lac Seul since, but I do miss it. It is a massive piece of water and I don't think it probably ever slows down, fishing wise. We always went in the latter part of September. Nice Report!

I was up for my third year last week. Always the best walleye fishing I could ever ask for. We stay at Gold Pines in Ear Falls and couldn't ask for a nicer and more helpful owner and staff. They are everywhere all the time making sure everyone is being taken care of. Reservations for next year already made and can't wait to go back.

 

Pink with silver, green with silver, and dark green sparkly jigs with red hooks did the trick this year. We call them Foo Foo Jigs. Minnows out performed leaches but they would still bit on both. The BIG girls always hit on minnows. The eaters would hit on either. We fished 3' to 15' and caught them everywhere we dropped a line. Some placed better than others.

This is the biggest one of our trip. 29", missed the big fish at the bait store by 1/2"

Got back last night... all in all had a good trip.  We stay in Cabins that are very near Mahkwa... for those of you headed that way, the road is fully repaired now... no long / rough detour to contend with.  We had a good trip... I wouldn't say it lived up to the reports I read from a couple of weeks ago where it was the best fishing in many years that people had, but I would say that we had weather to contend with 3 of the 5 days we were there which didn't help. 

I would say that we had higher than average slot and larger fish this year than the past several years - lots of 18 - 24" fish caught over the 5 days, with one 25, 26 and 28 3/4" fish caught.  Due to the variable weather we ended up fishing where we could, covering a lot of wind blown islands depending on which direction the wind was out of, and ended up covering some new ground when old spots didn't produce quite as well as past years.

Water levels are down about 18", so you'll need to be a little more aware than usual of rocks / dead heads / etc.

In the end, it was a great trip.. no lack of fish by any means... and good action for a Canadian lake!

    • Chops, brats, asparagus, onions and mushrooms in the foil and a little Malbec
    • Shrimp boil in foil packets on the pellet grill. Potatoes, corn, Andouille sausage, shrimp, lemon slices, butter and Cajun seasoning. I usually use some Old Bay in my shrimp boil but I was out and didn't know it until I started putting it all together.      
    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

    • Looks like a great summer time meal! 
    • That was my wife taking a Snapchat vid of the kids, my daughter took that picture..  steak night is probably my favorite night, but taco night is a close second lol
    • At the all-star break and man did I blow it with the predictions lol.   Other than Rosario and Escobar not really much to get too excited about.   Nice home-stand before the break but its already been a big disappointing season. Of all the late 90''s  teams that were just awful and then the recent  90+ loss teams repeatedly over and over, this years team has to be the most frustrating of them all. Definitely a regression.   Buxton/Sano I dont want the team to give up on them but good grief. After some progress last year I think everyone was expected big things from both of them. I would say give up on them but players like these always go on to shine somewhere else when the Twins let them go.   Mauer has been ok, nothing great but good to see him back hitting again after his stint on the DL.   Morrison dug himself too big of hole to get out of with a terrible start at the plate. A few signs of power but not enough.   Dozier is losing millions with a bad first half. So much for him signing a big deal somewhere else and the Twins getting something for him if he is traded.   The new pitchers Odorizzi and Lynn haven't been great. Gibson has been better than expected but too bad he cant get any run support he has pitched well all year. I like Berrios, good young pitcher still making improvement. Its too bad Santana hasn't been able to get back up and contribute yet.   I hope they don't make any foolish decisions and trade and try to make a run. They don't have a chance at the wild card and even though Cleveland isn't completely dominating I don't see the Twins overtaking them in the division.
    • I like that you caught someone else taking photos of the feast too!
