This group figured they caught “3500ish” Walleye and a couple hundred Northern during their week at Kapikik. The cold fronts that moved through during the first few days slowed the fishing down a little, but things picked up after that. For Walleye fishing they used minnows and plastics and fished moving water and weedbeds. The Walleye were 6-8 feet deep and biting at any time of day. The biggest Walleye caught was 25.5 inches. For Northern fishing they used spoons, spinners, and minnows. They fished the weedbeds and bays in 4-8 feet of water. Mornings were best for Northern fishing and the biggest one caught was 40 inches.
Despite the uncooperative weather, these McVicar “regulars” caught lots of fish and had a great trip. For Walleye fishing their preferred lures were rattlin’ raps (any color) and same for Northern fishing. They fished all of McVicar Lake, but not the portages as the water levels are too low. Fish were found in weedbeds and as deep as 20 feet. The biggest Walleye was 24 inches and biggest Northern was 32 inches.
These guys had a great trip to Fawcett… a few thousand Walleye were caught and about 100 Northern. The biggest Walleye was 28 inches and biggest Northern was 35. They fished Walleye with jigs, floaters, and spinners in 10-25 feet of water. They thought Fawcett had great structure and lots of choice spots. They said the river fishing was always consistent and everyone caught at least a 23-inch Walleye!
This couple did fantastic on Una Lake! They couldn't get into the portage lake, but caught somwhere between 500 and 600 Walleyes (and a few Northern by accident) on Una! They actually had a hard time catching fish to eat because so many of the Walleyes were over 20 inches! They caught several 24 inch Walleyes. The best bait was white jigs with minnows... they fished shorelines and humps in 8-14 feet of water.
