Another week at Miminiska is in the books and what a busy one it was. It started off with the annual visit from the Midwest Flyers who turned our air strip into a small airport for a few days. We also had another group that has been coming to Wilderness North for 5 years because they can’t get enough of the superb fishing.
After all the planes had touched down it was a quick transition from pilots to captains for all of the Midwest Flyers. . With great weather several excellent shore lunches were enjoyed. Tim and Sam were paired up in a boat that caught a bunch of walleye and some really nice northerns, just shy of a master angler. Jigs were working as usual with an assortment of colored twister tails bringing in not only walleye, but northerns as well. Greg, Bob, Frank and Bob had a real nice showing targeting walleye with some of their best results coming on the far side of Mim Island. Working either structure that varied between 8 to 15 feet or holes as deep as 30 feet, they caught tons of beautiful fish in the 20 to 23 inch range using crankbaits such as Hot n’ Tots. It was a great week and we look forward to hosting them again next year!
We had another group that spent the week with us as well who have been coming to Wilderness North for 5 years and this was their second year at Miminiska. They kept our guide Kash busy the entire week and he delivered by getting them into some spectacular fish spots that had these guys beyond satisfied. Danny and the boys, got to take in the beauty of Snake Falls and Mim Falls. Both spots the waters were running hard and the fish were biting even harder. The two falls and Walleye Mine were most productive for them were they caught loads of walleye with many measuring in between 20-22 inches. The best presentation for these guys seemed to be jigs tipped with leeches although worms also worked well too. The group had a great time and was a lot of fun to have stay with us and we can’t wait to see them again next year.
The fishing continues to be on fire! I look forward to seeing what is left in store for the rest of the season.
