Gary from Iowa Several years ago my brother and family went to Camp Wenasaga. I believe this is a one resort lake, northern pike and walleye. The lake has about 20 miles of shoreline. It is a housekeeping resort and the price is in the range you mentioned. I have no connection or financial interest in the resort. www.wenasaga.com

Kevin R The fishing in Kabetogama seams about the same as the lakes I fish in Canada. Last year I fished Kabetogama for the first time for a few days, I caught lots of different size class of Walleye & Pike. The main difference is the boat size & boat traffic lots more boats on Kabetogama. I also fished For the first time for a couple days on Petenwell & Lac Vieux Desert last year in Wisconsin. Petenwell was ok for Walleye & Lac Vieux Desert ok for Pike. Strange but not much boat traffic on the Lakes in Wisconsin compared with Kabetogama.

Sunset Lodge

Sunset Lodge in Red Lak Ontario offers what you are looking for. I have styed there perhaps a dozen times, it is an awesome fishery, they have camp boats too. With the River and islands there plenty of palces to fish in a small boat. Rene & Adel Franczac own the place.

rbsangler Kabetogama is all for me, the National Park is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Sure fishing can be tough, as in all lakes, but the fun is in figuring it out and finally getting a limit. Admit it, if fish got on every time you casted, you wouldn't feel the slightest bit challenged. Border crossings just plain old SUCK!! I'll stay in the good old USA and spend my money here, thank you.....Oh and by the way, the fish DO NOT know that they aren't in CANADA, but we do......completely psychological and anecdotal. I'd stay in the states if I were you, but I encourage you to have the freedom to do what you really want to do.

Casey Walleye We never smelled the paper mill and the water clarity was probably about 3 feet. This made the bite better on sunny days. There are two smaller lakes attached if you want to run about 2 miles down the lake. There is a channel that runs between them and it is chrystal clear as are the two lakes.

Shortline Just throwing out ideas that might offer a nice trip for a little less $$.

I admit that I see a lot of visiting fishermen struggle on Kab, but in general, our group does pretty well. 30-50 fish days for two guys in my boat are not at all uncommon. But then again, we hit the lake a lot and are pretty well dialed in when compared to somebody just showing up out of the blue. Rainy lake does seem to be a lot better producer for newcomers.

bigdaddyguns I fished Kab/Nam last summer and was surprised at the boat traffic and fishing pressure on the lake. Especially if you get on some fish you become a boat magnet. I enjoyed Kab but am driving north of the border this year to give Canada a try.

I have family who have fished LOTW around Morson with good success. Also I have heard good reports about Lac Seul tho no first hand recommendations.

ksand774 Iwas looking at that lake as well. I read someone in the forum stating that youy could smell the papermill from dryden all the time and the water was very muddy so you could not see anything in the water. Did you experience any of this?

Ontario sunset country

I spent a week this past July at Pine Sunset Lodge on Lake Wabigoon near Dryden. The last two days there we had a ball catching Walleye off the points of the islands. It is one of the most inexpensive resorts that I researched. Nothing fancy, just fishing.

houndog Lake Wabaskang and Gull Rock are both excellent fisheries. If you stay at Wrights Wilderness Camp at Gull Rock your situated so that even if the wind blows you can usually get out of camp and fish in decent water. Wabaskang is a lake I haven't fished for about 10 years but I do know that theres a "boat in camp" that also is located well to allow for fishing regardless of weather. I've taken my wife, kids and their spouses to Minnesota the past few years and regardless of the hassell am taking them to Canada this year. Fishing just doesn't compare and I figure the most expensive part of the trip is the time... Might as well spend it catching not just fishing.
