Kawartha Muskie Week

Recommended Posts

Just got back from a week of Muskie fishing on Balsam , Sturgeon and Pigeon with my son . The weather was not the best except Wednesday lots of rain and wind one day on Balsam the wind hit 17 mph some big white caps . Ended the week with 9 Muskies in the boat and saw or had hits or hooked fish 26 other times . Biggest for the week was 44" best lures were spinners and bulldogs . We did have 7 follows from fish 40" or bigger . The last 2 days we had some motor problems a throttle sensor went bad and the Mercury dealer didn't have the part so we couldn't go at slow speeds or idle . Can't wait to come back next year . Here is one of my sons fish from Balsam.

Sounds like a fun week even with the problems, the weather this time of year is always so unpredictable., especially tough to plan from hundreds of miles away.

Nice fish!!! Balsam can be a scary lake when the winds pick up. What areas do you fish? My dad got a 48 incher many years ago at the opening of south day. There use to be lot around Ant Island as well.My late uncle use to fish for them somewhere near Rosedale from the shore.

    • carp fishing kawartha lakes/London area.

      Hello, thanks for letting me join. I’m from England but I’m coming out to Canada, Ontario for 2 weeks in September. It’s not a fishing holiday but some fishing will definitely be happening. Has anyone got any advice on areas I should visit to try and catch a better carp as when I was out before caught lots of smaller ones so wanted to try and get one over 20lb! Also advice on what licences I need would be great. we are staying a few days in London, then travelling to the kawartha lakes area

    • 2842km an unforgettable week on an island, and a few tank Brookies

      A few weeks back me and two good friends did a trip 5 years in the making.   We have himmed and hawwed  made excuses over the years this that and the other but we finally made it to Nipigon. Its an intimidating lake, no known charts, shoals that literaly jump out of 200 fow , not many campsites marked, water is cold as sin and a few hundred km from anywhere.  But over the years seeing a few reports here and there of the monsters that lurk we couldn't resist the urge any longer.    We l

    • Great Week on Nip/Upper French

      Another great week at Sandy Haven Camp on Nip/Upper French.  Been going there for over 35 years and its about as good as it's ever been.   Three generations of Dietz boys hit the Nipissing grand slam.  Boated two muskies, had hooks in two more and numerous follows.   The walleye bite was hot with 40-50 fish days and limits of keepers.   Bass fishing, smallies and largemouth, was real good too.   That place is on fire!
