Planning a summer trip to fish Eagle Lake.
What resorts are recommended for a decent place to stay but more importantly their guide service ?
thanks in advance.
I perused the Ontario fishing regs and could not find a definition of "night fishing". I also looked specifically at the Zone 5 regs where the prohibition of night fishing is specified for Eagle Lake. I still didn't find anything. The guide staff at Andy Myers all came back before it was completely dark every night when we were there. So it might be at sunset, but that just a guess.
Honestly, we caught so many fish during the day, we never felt like we had to go out and fish after supper.
Just interested. What is the definition of "night" in the Eagle Lake area? I fish farther north and there have been many occasions when we fish until 10 PM, which is 20 to 30 minutes after the sun goes down. We do try to get back to the peer before it gets too dark.
You are correct that there is no night fishing allowed on the lake. With that said, it's still light around 10 pm that time of year up there. There are many shore lunch spots on the lake but the best is Gilligan's Island. It has a protected lagoon and is an awesome spot to have lunch.
Eagle Lake bound with my crew for the first time ever! Have previously fished Cedar Lake the last few years with great success, but we wanted to try a new adventure. We will be staying at South Shore Lodge in mid June and was wondering if any of you would be willing to share some info? Are there sanctuaries that we will need to be aware of that time of year? Are there any cool must see locations on the lake? Did I read somewhere that night fishing is prohibited? Looking forward to reading any replies or messages and thanks in advance for any help!
Returned home yesterday, fished out of Cedar Point Lodge for the past week. Each day we traveled to Portage Bay or the Big Water (Nash Bay and further). Jig and Minnow, caught walleye in 19 to 31 feet. Best was 26 to 31 feet. Find a reef and move around until you mark fish, then started fishing. It was a slow bite all week, you needed a very slow jig motion or just dragging jigs was equally as good, most fish would just grab and hold the jig, you wouldn't get much of a hit. 3 guys fishing 8-10 hours per day, finished the week with 442 walleye, 3 perch, 2 northern. Our numbers were about the same last year. Biggest walleye was 22 inches, the last day each guy in the boat caught 4 slot fish, so finished on a high note. I can't say enough about the staff at Cedar Point Lodge, very friendly and helpful. My uncle is 65 years old with health issues, and always a helping hand at the dock to help steady things as he gets in and out of the boat, they treat you like family. Wonderful trip, great memories.
Just got back also. Waves were tough but if you found the gold they would bite. Musky fishing was touch also. Raised 14 one day, but had no takers. Stayed at AML and service was first class.
Thinking next trip might be in the fall targeting smallies and walleyes
All in all good trip.
Fished Eagle last week and had a great time. Caught a ton of Canadian gold, The wind was screaming most of the week, so we fished the waves which made it tough but when your catching gold it's in material. Stayed at Eagle West, they had done a resurrecting the old camp and the new owners very helpful.
Any updates on Walleye and if anyone is catching anything lately? Heading up in a few days from Florida and would love nothing more to catch a ton of eaters. We stay at South Shore Lodge and traditionally have fished the flats out just west of Net Island.
