What Lures to Use on a Fly-In Fishing Trip
July 27, 2017
Every now and then, Dave and I get an email so good it’s impossible not to share! David Frame and his group spent a couple days out at Lount Lake, and sent us a note about his trip. It’s packed full of tips and insight for anyone going on a fly-in fishing trip. Here’s the best stuff:
What Lures Should I Use?
We literally lost count of the number of fish we caught; the action was fast and furious and none of us were disappointed. We primarily used jigs and minnows for the Walleye but caught them on gold and hothead colored X-raps and Gulp imitation minnows too. Smallmouth Bass loved the X-raps, green/white Colorado blade spinnerbaits, and baby Zara Spook (cisco pattern) as well. Northern Pike seemed to like anything flashy and fast we threw at them.
Where Should I Look?
The Walleye seemed to be in the 6′-12′ water, Smallies were mainly on boulder-lined banks and around islands in shallow bays. We saw plenty of eagles, a few bears and cubs (from a distance) in protected bays, beavers, and a handful of pairs of loons at dusk.
David told us they can’t wait to come back and experience more of the pristine wilderness that Northwest Ontario has to offer. Can’t blame ’em!
Escape to the Wilderness,
