Default Canadian Outposts and Lodges...

Hey all,
Just wanted to know if anyone has info about the following Lodges/Outposts:

Aikens lake lodge
Sportsman's Lodge (and it's outposts)
Miminiska Lodge

My buddies and I have been to Northern Ontario many times...and it's gets better every year. While we love walleye fishing, my boat partner and I are really looking for a place with trophy pike potential. And if not "Trophy" potential...atleast good numbers of +10lbs fish so things don't get to dull. A good, unexpected pike has a way of keeping you on your toes!

went to sportsmans 2 years ago, i think it was end of may. lots of walleye but did not do well on big pike. they are there but we just couldn't fine any, biggest was 12 lbs. nice camp, but i don't think they were very helpful in finding the big pike. red

I ran Wilderness North for three years and managed Miminiska (Mim) for a couple months last summer after our lodge managers quit mid-season. It is a great lodge and it is really known for the walleye and brookie fishing. The potential does exist for many big pike but they can be very spotty. There is a bay to the west of the lodge called Curry Bay that is very large (5 miles or so across) and has an average depth of about 7 feet. There are also a lot of rocky whalebacks that hold pike in the bay. I have had excellent luck on 8-15 pound pike in that bay especially. The best lure bar none is Northland's Bionic Bucktail in the walleye color (yellow, orange bucktail with a little brown and copper blades). There is also a spot called the walleye mine that holds some real sows. The "mine" is the place that the Albany River flows into Miminiska Lake. These fish are scattered and are feeding on the huge schools of walleye that hold in this area. I have taken a couple 20# from this spot. The lake is pretty big and there are a lot more spots that you will find pike, I just gave you my best two for an example. I hope your trip goes well, Mim lodge is truly a beautiful place. If you want a real adventure ask for a fly-out to Keezhik or Petawanga.
