Already mentioned by others, but Lake St. Joe is a very, very close second, and maybe even with North Caribou. Specifically Slate Falls camp on Eagle Island at the west end of the lake. Every hump and rockpile was crawling with good sized walleye.

Honourable mention goes to Miniss lake, also with Slate Falls. Last September while there I mostly fished for pike, but the walleye fishing was amazing. On one cold, rainy day the other two members of my group put well over 200 fish in their boat.
Fished North Caribou in 2007 Gong back this year Best walleye lake I have ever fished!! Walleyes hit Everything ,1/4 oz jigs to 10 Inch Musky baits No live bait needed!!!

Appreciate all the advice, some great looking options posted. Am intrigued by the Winoga boat in option. Quite a bit cheaper than a fly in, yet isolated and I would think you wouldn't see another boat if there for a week. Anything on the cabin, boats/motors at that Winoga outpost?

I know Slate Falls would be great-have any of you stated at Verne's Root Bay cabin on St Joe? If any of you have been to both Eagle Island and Root Bay and can compare the experience?

The good news about the Winoga cabin is that the cabin is very nice with solar power, indoor plumbing, internet,on a sheltered bay, etc and good boats with 15 or 20 hp Mercs or you can bring your own boat. The bad news is that when I talked with the owner the other day he mentioned that the cabin is booked for the summer. Double check with Dick at Winoga Lodge for sure. I've got room for a couple guys 6/10 - 6/17 if anyone is interested.

Many days you won't see any other boats at the Winoga cabin since it's 25 miles to the nearest cabin in any direction. I've never seen anyone come up from Eagle Island. If the weather is good some guides from Old Post will come out to fish Brodribb Bay which is near the Winoga cabin, so you may see them once or twice during the week. I've never seen them west of the cabin. Once in a while an individual boat will come out from the Old Post/Camp Lake St. Joseph end of the lake. That's how we found the Winoga cabin years ago. Why travel 45 minutes to good fishing when you can sit in the middle of it?

Lake of the Woods around the Sioux Narrows area has great walleye fishing without using live bait. A jig and plastic is all you need to catch walleyes all day long. The downside is it can be a long boat ride to the best walleye fishing and there are some other boats around.
