  1. Awesome. Glad it went/is going well those are some solid fish! Andrew
  2. One lure I used to loath was a hot n tot It seemed like every Ontario outfitter listed it as a must have for walleye but I never seemed to have any luck with them despite trying Fast forward to a trip w my FIL and he absolutely slayed fish on the tot all week. Fished w him for a day and got the hang of it (as short a line as possible to get it slamming the bottom) and it became a staple for me. Probably my number 1 trolling lure on fly ins Not a lure per se but I have had very little luck “frogging” for bass. Any fish I have caught have been pike lol. Not saying it’s not effective just hasn’t panned out for me to date Andrew
  3. As much as I like to think of myself as the star of my fishing trips, my newest post focuses on the real hero (or villain), the lake. So many factors to consider and with so many lakes to choose from it can be overwhelming Our first fly in was on a small lake which was perfect but over time we have shifted to preferring large complex lakes Anyway here is my take on things to consider https://www.northernjacks.com/post/how-to-choose-the-best-lake-for-your-fly-in-fishing-trip Cheers Andrew
  4. Thanks Doug. I enjoy it. Seems to extend the “high” of the trip a little longer Thanks!
  5. I am not long back from our semi annual fly in trip This year we fished Miniss Lake out of Sioux Lookout with Slate Falls Outposts In a word it was epic. Miniss is my favorite lake to date - big, quirky and full of walleye and pike Its a long report with lots of pictures - hope you enjoy https://www.northernjacks.com/post/miniss-lake-fly-in-trip-report-2022 Cheers Andrew
  6. That’s awesome. Congrats on the new venture Andrew
  7. A few weeks myself and some good friends did a quick one night canoe trip in the Halliburton Highlands. We got some crazy weather, may have lost a phone, caught some fish and had a great time https://www.northernjacks.com/post/the-busted-loop-haliburton-water-trails-report Cheers Andrew
  8. Thanks again all. Sounds like my issue was not using a bearing swivel Appreciate the help! Andrew
  9. Thanks all Used both a spoon and a diving crankbait. Vibration mainly when using the crank bait cheers Andrew
  10. Managed to head out for a 1 night let last weekend. this was my first time trolling in a canoe using a clamp on rod holder(Scotty) as previous trips I just held it After trolling and casting from shore my line was knotting like crazy. Has never happened before so fairly certain it was from the vibration of the lure while in the rod holder. Rods were set fairly high and was using 15 power pro on a spinning set up and lure clipper on via a snap swivel, no bearings So. Anyone else have this issue? Fix is using different line? Positioning the rod lower so it’s almost parallel with the water? Use a swivel with the barrel? thanks in advance for any tips Andrew
  11. I am 1 month out from this summers fly in with Slate Falls Outposts. We will be fishing Miniss lake I am so pumped and with a few of these trips under my belt I am less stressed than my first one for sure. Worrying about weight, catching enough fish for meals and so on. Here are a few of the things I wish I knew ahead of time https://www.northernjacks.com/post/things-i-knew-before-my-first-fly-in-trip Cheers Andrew
  12. Thanks for sharing. Sounds like a great trip at a great resort Andrew
