Pipestone Lake

Hi,

I have taken about 5 different trips to Pipestone over the years. Fished it in 2003, 2010, 2017, 2018, and 2019.

It's ULTRA clear water, so the daytime bite can be difficult, but the after...

No.

No.

I'm not going to Canada this year. I had gone to NW Ontario just about every year for the past 30 years, until last summer shut things down in 2020.

As for 2021, I'm not comfortable with...

Fog Lake

Yes.

We spent some time in Fog during our trips to Rowan. Fog, like Rowan, is a spectacular body of water. But to some extent I consider it to be simply an extension of Brooks Bay of Rowan,...

Oops. I didn't see that part the first time I read the OP. That would probably rule out West Jackfish. I know Pipestone has a few American Plan lodges - not sure whether or not that was the case...

Does this look familiar?

Ok, I found pics of both the north and south portages on Clearwater Lake.

If you watch this video beginning at 2 minutes and 20 seconds, continuing on to about the 3-minute mark, you will see both...

Lake Despair?

My other guess (other than Pipestone) might be Lake Despair.

I have never been on Lake Despair, but I believer that you can get there from Clearwater lake via what they call the south portage. ...

Pipestone maybe?

And here's some footage I shot of the Pipestone portage. I don't know if this looks familiar to you or not, but I'm guessing there aren't too many places in NW Ontario that have this type of...

Pike

As far as northern pike go, Gullrock (and the entire Red Lake chain) has a reputation for producing above average numbers of 35+ inch pike. A lot of guys catch them accidentally while walleye...

Size of Baits

My general rule of thumb is...
The bigger the better.

We have routinely caught accidental walleyes while trolling 7 to 8 inch crankbaits for muskies. We have caught quite a few on the 7 inch...

The last couple of years, our Canada trips have been early to mid August on a deep, clear lake trout lake, where the primary forage is ciscoes (aka tullibees)

Speed

Yes, I agree you can't troll cranks faster than a walleye can swim. We actually end up catching quite a few accidental walleyes on our musky baits (Triple D's, Depth Raiders), while trolling at 3.8...

Salmo

I actually bought a couple of the Freedivers, but in the size 12. I didn't buy them for walleyes, however. I bought them for lake trout, since they get down 38 feet if you're running 150 feet back...

Hornets and Flicker Minnows

Thanks for the reply, Karry.

I trust that you are correct in your assessment of the Salmo Hornet. I've watched enough Jason Mitchell episodes and YouTube videos to believe that Salmo Hornets are...

Crankbaits

To follow up on my prior post in this thread, I tend to view crankbaits in the same way that I view golf clubs - in other words, my choice depends upon the situation I am faced with.

Berkley Hit Stick - Any Feedback so far?

Has anybody used these yet?

If so, how have they worked, and what is the dive curve like?

Three things that intrigue me about this bait are the following:

1. They have rattles.

2. They...

Yes, I've been to Rowan Lake 6 times. My dad and I went every year from 1991 to 1995, and then we went again in 2004.

We fished some other famous Canadian musky lakes as well (LOTW, Eagle,...

In terms of walleye crankbaits, I break them into 3 depth categories (Shallow, Medium, and Deep Runners) and two different styles (walleye sized and musky sized).

The walleye sized baits are...
