Another awesome week on Cedar Lake! The Crappie fishing was outstanding with many people catching their limits. The Walleye fishing was tough during the day, but very good early morning and late evening. We had a couple in camp and it was their FIRST time to Canada… they caught over 30 Walleye in two hours one evening!! The guests enjoyed the campfire almost every evening… a lot of fun was had by all!

The fish went shallow this week and they were found in the sticks. The fishing actually started out slow, but got better as the week went on. The Muskie are a bit sluggish right now, but that will soon change as the temperatures begin to fall. The Lakers are still active on Augite and will pick up soon on the surrounding lakes as well.
What a great week on Kapikik Lake with over 2,500 Walleye caught and 150 Northern! The biggest Walleye was 22.5 inches and the biggest Northern was 45 inches!! That’s a trophy!! The best bait for Walleye was the class jig and minnow. What worked well for Northern were spinner baits and daredevils. The Walleye were shallow in 5-7 feet of water as were the Northern (3-4 feet).
The Walleye fishing on McVicar was slower this week, but they couldn’t keep the Northerns off their lines! The biggest one caught was 36 inches. They had better luck trolling than they did jigging, which is unusual!
The best fishing on Fawcett was near the river, like usual. The biggest of 400+ Walleye caught was 26 inches. These guys used lead head jigs with either plastic or minnows. Most of the Walleye were in 12-20 feet of water. They caught about 130 Northern with the biggest being 36 inches. Along with jigs and minnows, they bit on spoons and stick baits too.
This couple caught too many fish to count! They loved the accommodations and the fishing was excellent. Upper Wapesi is pretty hard to beat… This week the Walleye were still deep (about 18 feet of water). The biggest one they caught was 22 inches. They said the best spot by far was the sand bar right out from the cabin! Always a favourite.
These two caught over 400 Walleye EACH! The best spots were along the rocky shores in 7-12 feet of water. They best combo was pink jigs with white twister tails or minnows. They caught over 200 Northern with the biggest being 39 inches! The Northern were along the edges of weedbeds in 3-5 feet of water. They even had great Perch fishing and the biggest was over 12 inches! They said the silence was beautiful and they enjoyed watching the Bald Eagle nesting on the lake.
