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. 

Tight lines.

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.  

Thanks, Remi.

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.

Deerlake, thanks for the excellent report. We will definitely check out those two spots for the big fish. We have a guide for two day's and then a different guide for one more day. We are staying for eight day's this year. I just got done packing my stuff, we leave at 4:00 AM tomorrow. You didn't say if your line broke or if the big fish just came unhooked. If the line broke and I hook into her and bag her I'll return your jig. LOL

Saw one two years ago in the middle of 502 during early morning light. You don't want to see one up close and personal. It was a cow and she was a lot taller than the truck I was seated in.

I was disappointed that we didn't get to see a moose.  The group of guys that went on a fly out to the same lake we were at the previous day got to see a cow and calf feeding on watercress so we missed it by a day.

That's awesome to see. We saw one driving home overnight Friday. He was in the middle of the road as we passed by. Also saw 2 moose which was a little scary. Luckily they weren't in the road.

Bucketmouth,

I have a picture and video of a Lynx swimming near Viking Reef on Eagle Lake but don't know how to post it here. According to old guides and lodge owner very very rare to see. That's what makes Canada special. Cat was 1.5 miles from far west shorelinend was still a 1/2 mile to closest land.
