any particular reason you are more interested in the east end? Other then the possibility of hooking into a Musky, you really don't have any other advantages going East. There are many affordable resorts near the Ear Falls Area. Go to a browser like google, type in lac Seul and Ear Falls and see what you get. There's no reason to go to a pricy resort at all if you are heading to the Seul.

We fish the east side, so I can NOT compare with the west side as we have never fished there. I guess we look at all the resort in the Ear Falls side and it turns us away a little bit. But I hear the fishing is excellent over there too. But to get to the question about the east side. The houseboat is an excellent way to go but the price only goes down with the amount of people you share the cost with. Figure about $3000 for the week divides by how ever many payers. S0 if its 3 couples, $1000/couple, $500 per person, if that's the case than very cheap and you can go up to the area that you are used to (chamberlain narrows).

We (my father-in law, his brother, and I) take a couple trips each year to the east side of Lac Seul. We don't always get a full week off so what we do is get a room at a hotel in Sioux lookout and we boat up to our favorite spots on LS each day. We put in either in Hudson or on Deception Bay and have a boat ride each day. We don't mind doing this and we have shore lunch up the lake and come back at dusk. Hotel is cheap when you divide it among 3-4 guys and then just split the gas money and groceries and bait. If you are fishing the east side there are fewer options but Ojibway outfitters is in the prime spot. There is a major spawning area up there and the numbers of fish is phenomenal. We have stayed with them but will I am sure in the years to come.

hope this helps

Our group of 10 stayed in Ear Falls at Evergreen Lodge and Golden Eagle. For the past few years we have been going to the SE end and staying on Lost Lake at the Lac Seul Resort across the lake from Hudson. We drive around Lost Lake to get there but one could launch at Hudson. In the 7 years we have been going, the most it has cost me, including fuel, tackle, bait, lodging, meals, cigars, beer, etc., has been about $475. We arrive on a Saturday and leave on a Wednesday.

Either of these resorts I would recommend to anyone.

This June will be our 3rd year in a row going to chamberlain narrows. The cost is $122 per person per day and that only includes lodging. When I'm paying for myself and my 2 sons, it gets very expensive!

122 per person per day for just lodging?? YIKES! That is outrageous, I hope you get a whirpool and satellite TV in that cabin!

When you look at a map at the resort by Ear Falls, it may look far more intimidating then it really is. Once you get away from a very small section of land near the road there is nothing out there but trees. I'm sure the East End is great as well, I would just say to not get suckered into a place that is unfairly priced.

We were up there 2 years ago and went with a houseboat company right there in Hudson and motored up into Siene Bay.

We are going back up there this year, but that place was booked so we are going with another company on Lac Suel that I have yet to find out the name of (dad is putting the trip together grin.gif)

Anyway, I'd be interested to know where some of you go on the East side as that is were I believe we are going out of.

I dont think a houseboat is necessarily the cheapest. Our trip ran $419 per person from my driveway, license included. We stayed at Mahkwa and did our own cooking. We fished 5 days. This will be our 19th year.

bigtimeelectric,

My group goes to Mahkwa as well. Like all of Lac Seul you can fish as close to or as far from camp as you like. I've caught 20" smallies, 24" eyes, and 38" northerns from shore about 50 feet from my cabin door.

I've heard other people mention problems with Mahkwa double-booking their week but, knock on wood, we've never had any problems.

They're improving the place every year. It's operated by the local native tribe.

I love the place.

Regards,

We've stayed at Frog Rapids Camp at least once a summer for the last 25 years and have always had a great experience. The only downfall is the trailering and boat ride. We have also done houseboats and is by far the best way to go. Just depends on the pocketbook.

We went out of Deception landing last year,( our first time on Lac Seul) and boated in 15-20 miles. The fishing was great, but does anyone have any decent fishing closer in, say, within 5 miles of Deception bay?

From Deception we've always gone up to Bear Narrows or Sen Bay. Out of necessity (weather), we have found some good fishing closer to Deception, but they're a little harder to find.

I am sure you can find fish near Deception Bay but I will say that we go up the lake to the areas you mentioned because we know they hold fish. Another thing is that the resorts on that side of the lake that send out daily guides (ie. andersons, and moosehorn) , they go way up the lake to those areas mentioned (pine point, bear narrows, etc.). so something has to be said that the guides who fish the lake everyday don't spend their time at the southeast side. with the said we have caught some nice sized fish in the big opening area just beyond Lost Island Lodge. The lake is great so I would imagine you can find fish if you want to put in the time instead of the gas.

good luck

Hey guys, I have stayed up at Chamberlin Narrow (very expensive!!) but good fishing but prefer staying at Abram Lake Campground on Abram/Minitaki Lake if you are on the East end. A guy can trailer up about 15 minutes and put in on Lac Suel or fish around on minitaki. What I did the last few years since I purchased a popup pick up camper is head to the west end and stay at Whitewing Resort. Their cabins are spendy (about 100 per person per night) but the camping with full hookups and nice new showers plus a lodge to drink in was $14 a night per person. So if you don't mind camping or if you have a camper I feel that is a great place to stay. They put in my boat, docked it and have all the resources you need. If you want a meal they will cook it but that too is expensive. They even brought me back a case of Labatts and bacardi from town!! So..........spend your $$$ on gas and camp at Whitewing resort. The furthest we fished was about 1 hour with a 115 and a 18.5 Tyee and we did very well. They can hook you up with a guide (Cree Indian Ron) for 100 a day but it is well worth it because not much is marked up there. Very cool place. I am headed up there mid June for a week and again in July. I saw guys and kids catching fish right off the dock at various times of the day too!!! Go there. cool.gif

My Father-in-Law and all of my wife's relatives all go to the Golden Eagle every year, and they always catch more than enough Fish and it sounds pretty reasonable. This will be my first summer going, I'll report back how it was. I think it works out to be about $300 per person for lodging, a share of food and boat rental. Not too shabby!

    • Great fish @Lals!   You sound like we did on the way home from our trip - analyzing every fish we didn’t hook up or keep hooked after they bit.  I didn’t get any joy from a Top Raider either but live chucking them.   Thanks for the report!
    • Just came back from LOTW.  Numbers were down but not bites.  I was a miserable 6 for 15 fish on. 75% of the bites came on the figure 8, I mostly tried to set back into them and they would come "unbuttoned " pretty quickly.  Next year, I will  try pulling them around or if they bite up in the corner of my figure 8, I would then pull the rod straight back trying to set it in the corner of their mouth.   Smaller bucktails got the most bites.  Cranks did pretty well too -- 7" Slammers and Crane Bait.  One friend got a 48 on a Top Raider. I had a 4 -5 large fish follow a top raider or a jackpot but none bit.  My brother got a 50" on a Mepps Musky Marabou.  
    • The problem with fishing walleye below 35' is that whatever you catch you best be planning to keep. Bringing them out of that depth will kill them for sure no matter how slowly it is done.

    • I had this exact model for many years and it even ran for several years after my wife ran straight gas in it and seized it up one day when I wasn't home. After it cooled down and I replaced the gas in the tank with mixed fuel, it started right up but always had a knock after that.
    • I came through Pennsylvania to get here at least and there isn’t a Maryland forum so here goes:   I have a couple extra days later this week and a car to go wherever.  I’ve been looking for a guide or charter to get on the water but am having more trouble than expected.  The Chesapeake Bay charters for stripers run up to 6 in a group but don’t mix groups so jumping on an unfilled boat doesn’t seem to be an option. I’ve been working with one captain willing to try but no dice yet.  I could have the whole boat to myself for $600 I suppose...   So anyway, is there anyone who has a suggestion, contact, or even a boat in the Maryland area for ANY kind of fishing?  Honestly I’m pretty open but would prefer something coastal.  Have car, will travel.   I talked to a guy with a sweet jet boat at The Point of Rocks on the Potomac yesterday but he doesn’t guide.  But that could be an option too.  Might head to Niagara Falls after I’m done in Baltimore so NY state so there’s another one.   Yep, this is an official Wanderabout.
    • Tonight I caught crappie, bass, big bluegills, rock bass, pike and a snapping turtle.... All after 11pm!  Try it sometime, tiny black jigs for big nocturnal bluegills. Loud Black topwaters for Pike n bass. Bring extra flashlight batteries and bug spray, lots of bug spray!!!
    • Those old 2 strokes just keep running forever.
    • I will take it where are you located ? Will be gone next week fishing be back week of 22nd. I am using a 80's model lawnboy push for trimming be nice to have a backup newer model.
    • I have caught fish on the slide diver but I don’t notice  any difference from the regular Dipsey diver and they are a pain in the one-just-like-silly-me to set up. I have Dipsy’s in all kinds of different colors and I can’t tell if that makes a difference either. I have one that actually will glow in the dark
