Almost a Guide

Almost a Guide (5/10)



  1. Thanks for the help . A couple guys from NY who I helped with their Kawartha's trip sent me some good info and a map with areas to try . I hope we will be able to boat a few
  2. Hi Everyone My son and I can't make our fall trip to Canada because of the border being closed . So we are going to try a lake in NY for Muskies in Oct . Have any of you guys fished this lake ? I know its a long shot just trying to get as much info as I can for our trip . Thanks for your help . Hank Jr
  3. Nice Muskies thanks for the report
  4. We saw the most fish on spinners but single blades out fished the double 8's and 10's color didn't matter . The big fish we saw were on bull dogs , medusala's , glide and jerk baits . My son's fish came on a all black medusala . With the cold front we did down size on most of our lures . We only caught one trolling we usually catch between 5 -8 trolling during our week when we eat our lunches or I need a break from casting my son doesn't like to troll . We caught fish in 2 ft -14 ft mostly deep edges but some off rocks and weeds .

    Just got back from 6 days of Muskie fishing in the Kawartha's . My son and grandson and I fished Balsam , Pigeon and Sturgeon . The weather was tough high winds and a big cold front hit all week . Tuesday it was 75 by Thursday with the wind chill was 29 degrees . We had a OK week boated 9 Muskies saw 22 others with follows and hits at the boat we only count hits if we see it is a Muskie . My grandson caught his first Muskie 34 1/2" my son won big fish of the week with a 43" er from Pigeon cause me $10 . Of the follows 5 were nice fish probably 40" or bigger . With winds 10 mph and gusting to 18 mph there were a lot of our regular spots we couldn't fish . My grandson learn how to cast and work most of the different type Muskie lures I'm sure he will be back chasing Muskies again . Here is my sons fish .
  6. Pretty fish looks like a beautiful day on the water .
  7. Same here Cliff without my son doing most of the work I wouldn't be doing much Muskie fishing . He said Dad don't worry I'll get you there and unhook all those Muskies LOL . Sounds kike you had a nice day on the water thanks for the report.
  8. Nice Muskie looks like you had a good week with plenty of action . Thanks for the report
  9. Pigeon Lake has a good population of Muskies . Which end of the lake are you on ? I see you are new on the site try to send me a PM I can help you find some . Good Luck
  10. You should be able to catch some fish on Balsam . Right up the shore line from the park is a bay try the deep edge in 10 -12 ft you should do OK with Pike , Walleye and Bass . Try casting some spinners Mepps Agiala's #4 or #5 . Good luck let us know how you do . We also do better on the weed edge across from the park .
  11. My son and I made several trips to the upper French stayed at a couple lodges . We are Muskie fisherman but caught nice Bass , Walleyes and Pike on our trips . Lunge Lodge is in a good location and offers both bring your own food or American plan . Your boat will be fine there are plenty of islands and bays to fish . Good luck.
  12. Great day on the water we only catch them that size on fly -in trips . Thanks for the pictures and report .
  13. Good day on the water thanks for the report . Good luck with the Muskies .
  14. Same thing I did Joe . I have been deer hunting since I was 12 going to be 73 in a couple months . I have trouble with the cold my feet and hands mostly . This year is pretty mild weather wise here in PA . The other problem my wife is not a big fan of deer meat so I give most of it away . Hang in there you are not alone . I'm just happy I can still chase Muskies but with the size of the lures thats starting to slow me down .
  15. Nice looking Muskie and Walleye thanks for the report and pictures . Good luck the rest of the season .
