Celebrating 30 Years of Wilderness North  –          

2018: Week 08

D'Alton Outpost

From Our Guests:

“We had a wonderful time, everything was great.

Hotspots: Water between 8 to 12 feet (pretty much nothing biting in deeper water)
Lures: Only thing we fished with was jigs and live bait.
Memorable moments: I was fishing with my two daughters and my best friend. As far as fishing it was as good as it always is: big fish, good numbers. Gil was fishing off the dock for northern pike when the wind was up. As he was casting the weed bed he decided to do a figure eight off the end of the dock. (Bang) he caught a 26-inch Walleye!
Hot Tip: fish slow and low.”



Makokibatan Lodge

From the lodge:

Makok guests have been focusing on walleye this last week with great success. Numbers are consistent and sizes are impressive, with the largest being a chunky walleye measuring to a whopping 28.5” (see below for pic)! This sweet fish was caught on a ¼ inch jig head in Walleye Alley. New guests are arriving in the next few days and will be met with water temperatures in the low 70’s. Current guests are having success at 15-17 ft for the masters and Walleye Alley continues to be a hot spot, along with the outlet of the Albany! Air temps for the region are very warm so stay hydrated!

A recent river trip led to great success for the Hassett group! With multiple master walleye and some epic battles with brookies, this group was over the moon about their adventure! See photos from their trip below.

Miminiska Lodge

Fishing this season at Mim has been off the charts! The fish have been biting all day long, and anglers are having a hard time leaving the lake in the evenings as the bite is on well past 10 pm! Dave released a personal best 22” brook trout this week (don’t think he’ll be heading back to Australia anytime soon!) There has been big pike released in the 40” class and walleye are predictable as ever. Hot spots are Mim Falls, Upper Falls, the Freestone River and of course the Walleye Mine. Water temps are warming up, but fish are still playing along nicely!

Mojikit Channel Lodge

The last group for a little while left this week, (don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere) and had a wonderful time chasing northern pike. Countless fish were released by the group including a master angler northern in excess of 40”. There will be more reports from Moj once the next group comes in… In the meantime, if I catch anything notable, I’ll be sure to let you know!

Striker's Point Lodge

Guests are due in to SPL any day now, and after a short period of staff R and R, we are happy to report lots of walleye! (we can’t get enough of shore lunch even now!) Water levels at Whitewater are dropping. Mice Creek is getting close to choked off and please take your time entering Bay of Pigs! Water temps are high 60’s to low 70’s.

Also, there is rumour of a 53” northern released by some canoe trippers on Whitewater Lake. The bite is hot! We can’t wait to see what next week brings!
