Weather Warms up + Fishing Heats Up at Miminiska

Katelyn's Albany AdventureAt Miminiska Lodge this week we had bright sunshine, with only minimal rain. Temperatures averaged in the high 60s/low 70s. The fish were out in full force this week, one group even managed to reel in over 100 fish within two and a half hours at the Honey Hole.

Most found success in shallow waters, within 8-10 feet for Walleye, and less than 5 feet for Northern Pike. Walleye were averaging 20 inches or larger, and Keezhik River Brook Trout were between 20-22 inches. While the Walleye were abundant last week, the Northern Pike have taken center stage, with guests catching large Pike ranging from 34 to over 41 inches.

Jigheads in light and bright colours remain a popular choice for lures, as well as Little Cleo’s, spoons and Rapalla types. Johnson Silver Minnow type spoons proved to be irresistible to the Pike.

Charles 28in Walleye 2008We had several Master Angler’s this week:
Chase from Saginaw Michigan earned his Master Angler pin with a Pike measuring just over 41 inches caught on the Keezhik River using a Rapalla. His dad, Michael, is also a Master Angler with a slightly smaller Pike at exactly 41 inches and a 21 inch Brook Trout. Charles from Iron Mountain, Michigan earned his pin with a 28 inch Walleye. Included in this list is Bob Davidson with another 41 inch Pike caught in shallow waters using a spoon. Hear all about it in this week’s podcast
