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.

    • Whats everyone's thoughts on this new feature? https://www.navionics.com/usa/blog/post/ais-in-the-boating-app/  
    • What you are doing is even better than what they hope to achieve with the law. I do the same thing. My minnows never see lake water while in my possession except while riding on a hook. It is not possible to transfer invasives via my minnows or minnow container unless they came from the bait shop and the result would be same either way.   This brings up a good question. Aren't minnows trapped in lakes and streams? They could contain microscopic versions of invasive species and therefore be responsible for transporting them to every lake where the minnows are used. Even those raised in rearing ponds are potential threats if the rearing ponds become infected.   Unfortunately, it is impractical (not impossible) for a CO to know that my minnows have not been in the lake. He would have to take my word for it. As a result, unless they catch me taking my aerated minnow cooler from my boat to my truck, ....  
    • I see they got Eddie & Cron back last night but now Buxton's out again. It didn't help though as they played a sloppy game & beat themselves.
    • Work related travel.  Never been to the northeast before and wanted to experience it as much as possible so I drove and took a couple extra days.   Original plans had me touring some stuff in the DC area but its been a little more difficult and expensive to wander about than I’d hoped.   Get me to some water!!!
    • Most of the fish I've caught out of the abyss were caught just above the thermocline or high in the water column (1'-15' down). A friend of mine once caught a 31" hog walleye on a top raider over 100'+ of water. That's just one of the many hogs to come into my boat that were 0'-5' under the surface in mega deep water. So, keep your lures above the kill zone on slot lakes and you'll still get bit.
    • To young to be retired whats up with all this Wandering?  Didn't you just come back from Musky fishering? 🤔
    • Walked the Inner Harbor a bit, ate soft shell crab and took in an Oriole’s game at Camden Yards today.  Oh, and finally booked a SHORT trip on Erie to catch on the ride home.  Better than nothing.   White water rafting tomorrow will have to do for my most significant Maryland experience.  This put a little chill on me when I noticed what it was.     It’s a nice place to visit, but... you know the  rest.
    • Tried my hand at making Nashville hot chicken last night. It didn't turn out exactly like I expected but it was still good.  
    • 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.
