I'm going. September 5th to 13th Upsala, Ontario. On Lac Des Mille Lacs at Pine Point Resort. We have our own private island 3 cabins, sauna/bath house, and private dock. Hoping to find some big pike this year. We're tired of our usual May walleye opener trip. Catching 50 plus walleye every day gets old :roll:

Hoping to beat my 40" 12 lb. wall hanger

headed up to rainy lake north arm first week of july, second week of july will be at dog tooth lake near kenora. First time fishing these two lakes. We usually do two weeks on L.O.W. on a house boat but thought we would change things up a bit.

Memorial Day week for us - Southern Ontario. Floatplane drops us off for the week about 20 miles north of Crane Lake.

I love the attitudes of the fishermen up there. They treat the smallies like most of us treat carp! They're too busy chasing the walleyes, which leaves the smallmouth completely neglected. That's fine with us though!

Last year my buddy even caught a 4lb Largemouth up there!

I'll be going on the opener to Northwest Ontario near Perrault lake....my 26th journey....Last year I took on the webmaster role for the outfitter...The proprietor and his wife insisted that I stay an extra week this year....I think I'll oblige....has any one else found Crappies north of the 50th parallel?

I appreciate your posting, my daughter and son in law keep me informed as to the weather conditions. The lake we'er on is Cope lake and its full of smallies and splake. For other types I go to Elephant lake walleye's northern and musky. I'm not certain when I'lll get up there this year or how long I can stay, there is no power or running water. Just like living in the old days :-D. Besides I wouldn't go up till after black flies die off , I learned that lesson about 5 years ago.

Going up in exactly 40 days! Northwest Ontario, to Pakwash Lake. This is probably my 5th trip, & my dad's 20-something trip there. Can't wait. Wouldn't be surprised to see some ice on the lake...it wouldn't be the first time we couldn't fish the whole lake on the first couple days of the trip. Look at the bright side...free ice for the coolers!

A week at Rainy Lake; A week at LOTW at Wiley Point Lodge; and a week at Lac Seul.
I might as well get citizenship my wife says.

Also a week at Vermilion in northern MN (close to Canada but not quite there).

I get a lot of time off, and my wife wants me GONE ! :-D God bless her.

Going to Dinorwic Lake in Ont. in middle of August! This will be my first trip to that lake but I have been fishing in Canada before and always have a BLAST! This year I'm taking my wife for her first time and my 12 year old daughter 1st time too! Staying at Pine Sunset Lodge. Has anybody been here or fished this lake before? Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

Tight Lines

I'll be at Amik Lodge , Northwest Bay of Rainy Lake the last week of June. Hoping to get some of those sow walleyes that walleye_71 released last year. I know we'll have no trouble finding big smallies and huge pike. There may even be a sturgeon or two during the week.. Gas prices be dammmed.

so far two trips booked will be going to cleftrock may 22 to 27 and then in the fall going to century lodge on eagle I think the first week in sept. I am not really too excited about eagle too close and I suspect too many boats for my taste but have to give in to the group and the whimps once in awhile..... I may also sneak a trip into Wabakimi in June but not booked yet.
