try vertical jigging the points just west of the lodge and you will catch all the nice walleyes you want...

You don't have to go far. A few minutes away at Windigo or La Salle Islands. Both produce nice fish in the 15-30 foot range. We have been going to Mahkwa for 17 yrs the first week of Sept. Also, there's an Anglican Mission where the large ferry crosses and you will generally see boats strung along a line at the break. The water goes from 18 ft to 100ft in about 50 yards . Stay in the 15-40 ft range and work it back and forth like a staircase especially in the early A.M. and from 6-8 P.M. Big fish spot. Ask the hosts of the camp and they'll mark some spots for you to fish. Good Luck. I can't wait.

Last week on Lac Seul was as good as advertised. The weather was rough at points during the week with a few days of big wind, and most days with rain at times or for most of some days. But even with all the uneven conditions the fishing was great. On days when we could get to all the spots the walleyes cooperated with numerous 20-24-inch walleyes, we caught plenty of fish. We mostly vertical jigged, a little trolling mixed in here and there but for the most part we found fish and jigging was effective. We didn't find color to play much of a factor, and crawlers seemed to work the best. Others did do well on minnows and leeches so maybe it didn't really matter.

Mahkwa lodge was (housekeeping cabins) exactly as advertised, clean, comfortable, exactly what we were looking for. The staff was helpful including the two dogs that chased the bears away every morning!

Great trip overall, just too short! For the week the biggest walleye was 27.5" and the largest northern was 40". What a great week! I would like to thank everyone for tips and advise, they all were used and appreciated greatly.
