Big fish and lots of them

Recommended Posts

Lake Athabasca in northern Saskatchewan Canada has big fish and lots of them Lakers up to 60lbs. Northern Pike in the 50"range grayling and walley Trolling, casting and Fly fishing for either species works,Flies, or surface hooks are a blast for lakers they are just as aggresive as Pike espescially in the 20 to 25lbs. range, the bigger ones run and hide.Imagine 50 plus fish a day most over 20lbs. this lake is untouced and has it all, check out the pictures at Lake Athabasca Tours

Nice site, but it reelly (pun intended)turns my crank, that folks will spend a fortune designing a Web Site, and then not post any prices on it.

Best time for the Hogs are June, July and September,June we catch them in as little as 6 feet of water you can see the Lakers on the bottom of the Lake, Pike are the same in shallow water basking in the sun they look like logs on the bottom, use surface hooks for either species such as frogs, mice etc. etc.The Lakers are as aggressive as Pike espescially in the fall when they are comming in to spawn.It's amazing when you latch on to a 30 plus pounder and another is right beside it we had a guy last year with a 50 lbs. fish on light tackle and the rod didn't break.This lake is without question the best Lake for volume and size of fish caught.

I don't mean to put this body of water down, but i've fished the lake about 10 years ago. If it wasn't for the lakers i don't think we would of had many fish on our lines. I'd like to think that we were more experienced to catch more northerns or walleyes, but it was tough at that time. Lakers were a great time and a fun fish to catch. Wanted to know if anyone else had the same luck we did 10 years ago?? It sure was a long drive from central minnesota!!!!

cas, This lake is notorious for big pike. Maybe the weather had the pike turned off when you were there. I myself would be after those huge Lake Trout.

What does all this cost? I don't see it mentioned anywhere on the web page. What kind of packages do they offer?

The best time to catch Northern Pike is in June or July, your guide must be prepared to go to where the fish are, we venture where we must to get the bays in which the Pike like to lounge in.Lakers do seem to be the fish of choice for most fisherman, everyone wants to latch onto the 50 pounder.As for walley they are on the west side of the lake in the delta / river system, I could give more details if someone wants to listen?
For prices e-mail me.

    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever. 
    • Fleet Farm currently has Kingsford 15.4lb x 2 for $8.  About the same per pound as the summer sales.
    • We have a 6 year old Frigidare gas range and the ignitors on the top burners seem to be controlled by a ghost.  Sometimes one doesn't work, sometimes another.  Any ideas?   Thanks for your time. Tom
    • Make sure the adapter wiring matches the diagram on the cover of your female plug-in on your truck too.  Some use the center pin for backup lights,  yet others it is an auxiliary.  Also make sure that the lobe on the male is lining up with the lobe on the female plug-in too.
    • Trailer, one side, brake and turns dont work, same wire, same bulb filament.  Sounds like a ground problem.  With other tow vehicles its ok.  Are these 7 pin to 4s?  Could be the wrong adapter?  Not all 7 to 4 pins are the same.  Sometimes too that bad ground seeks its path through the hitch.  
    • Wrapping up the ice fishing after tomorrow. I’ve never owned a propane auger before this one and the one I have was bought used. Any storage tips?
