A group of us is going to the lower manitou week of May 20th. Could anyone tell me what will be biting that time of year?

Lake trout, Pike, Smallmouth Bass, White Fish are the only sportfish in the lake except muskie (closed season in May ). Trout are the main target.

Spring fishing is usually SUPER for trout. 100 fish days can happen...Look at surface temps...~55 and below and the trout will be all over in the water column. Get much above 55 and they will be deeper.

Pike will bite and there are alot of them and some very nice fish. Where are you staying?

My parents just built a cabin there. Was up there last July for 2 days. Now going for a week in May and probably July again.

Camp Manitou on the stretch has HK cabins. I believe his site is www.campmanitoufishing.net It is a smaller camp and they have a variety of options. He is on FM as Outfitter17, he should be able to help you out.

They have a nice place. It is about 20+ miles by boat to their resort from the landing. Nice place. Only stayed there once, because we normally stay at my buddies parent's outpost.

Their HSOforum has info on maps.

Fun lake with some nice fish in it.

It is Moose Track Cottages. I believe it is called, AJ's Hideaway...It is just before the stretch opens up.

Where are you located?

We are located on an island about 6 miles before the strecth opens up. I know the cabin you are talking about, it's for sale and terry from borderland realty called to see if I was interested in buying it. We went to look at it, but there was no dock to park at last fall, so we just turned around and went back to camp. Do you know if it sold yet?

All the trout fishing reports have been good for the manitou area this past weekend. Looking at the extended forcast it looks like we will have some mild temps when you are up next weekend. It should be a great trip. Look forward to meeting you.
