My father-in-law has invited along on his "annual" fishing trip (he actually hasn't fished for at least four years). We're going to Lake Poshkokagan, which is apparently just south of Pickle Lake.

Can anyone give me any information about this lake? What species are there?

I have fished Canadian shield lakes before, so I have a few ideas in my head, but any helpful hints in advance would be very much appreciated.

Since no one replied, I figured that I might as well turn this into a fishing report.

First, the lake is Pashkokagan, not Poshkokagan... oops... it is a couple of hours north of Ignace, maybe 30 minutes south of Pickle Lake.

The fishing for walleyes was generally good. We caught plenty in many areas using many different techniques. These fish were generally of "good size", though we didn't catch any bigger than 21".

The fishing for northern pike was a little disappointing. Again, we caught plenty of them, but the size was not good. The largest that we caught in five days was only 25 inches.

I wondered about that--I know the Posh river but not Pash Lake. If you were 30 miles south of Pickle you were in the vicinity of Savant Lake. Great fishing there--but along ways from anywhere.

    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.
