The camp was very well run and responsive to our needs. The boats were gassed and baited every morning and the hosts were very helpful. Cabins were rustic but worked just fine. The ride in and out from the parking area was an hour-long trip on a all-terain vehicle, very bumpy but unique. As usual, friends and beer make a trip fun, I would go back in a minute and recomend it to anyone looking for a great trip. BFG
Savant Lake Ontario
The bigger lakers were caught on 1oz dressed jigs with a stinger. These were baited with 4" - 6" sucker minnows which the camp has for $1.00/each. I caught 5 lakers (25" - 30") using a large sonar type blade bait near deep water structure, but the larger lakers were caught on the large jig. The popular method of fishing on Savant by the staff and experienced guys was to backtroll; holding the boat on top of the many humps or structure near or in deep water.
We were there during the 3rd week of September and the lakers were transitioning to the spawning reefs. In August, I'd guess the walleyes to be shallower and the lakers deeper. The staff is very helpful marking up a lake map for you with travel routes and fishing spots. If you do struggle, they can be very helpful. Post how you do, good luck - BFG
