Hello from Makok!

We have had a lot of bright sunny days up here with winds picking up throughout the day. Temperatures have been steady in the high 70s – low 80s. Water temperature is sitting around 68 – 71F. We have seen water levels drop about a foot this past week. The pattern of monster walleye continues, with fish reaching 26 to 28 inches caught and released. Pike fishing continues to excel, with some of the larger northern’s starting to show up.

Our biggest pike caught and released so far has been 36″. Soon enough, the big girls will show up – patience is the key. Master Angler ‘eyes still being caught on jig heads and twister tails at Sand Point, The Cut and down along Walleye Alley.


Ron’s 28inch Walleye!


“Too many 25″ & 26” eyes to count, plus throw in a few 3ft pike and you have a fishing trip. The largest walleye of the trip was a beautiful 28inch walleye! The new boats were a real plus and of course, Anita and the girls at the lodge were outstanding. Looking forward to a return visit. “-Ron and Bob

“We had an amazing time at Makok. We hammered fish using spinners with leeches. We fished mostly in 6.5 to 7 feet of water.  Did really well at the Cut.” -Degaz Group

“The Martin party of 17 had a fantastic week.  Anita and the team served up excellent weather, fishing (catching), and hospitality all week.  Nearly every member of the party caught a 24”, or greater Walleye with the largest measuring 28”.  Two members caught nice 38” Northern.  As always, the Cut was hot all week with Walleye Alley and Sandy Shore producing abundant large, fat Walleye.

All in all, the group had a fabulous week of fishing and friendship.  All made possible by the awesome accommodations and service provided by Wilderness North”.  Thanks!!!!!!
