Made it back from yet another awesome Nungesser Lake experience. Three days prior was the main may fly hatch. It affected the bit but didn't stop it at all. Crawlers were definitely the bait of choice during the hatch. Half of a crawler on a jig head did the trick! Leach bite was okay and the minnow bit picked up near the tail end of our trip. 

Hit two walleyes over 26". Got some really nice perch. Didn't target pike this trip but did manage getting 5 to hit my walleye! Boated one of them. Big pike this trip was a 32" fatty that hit a jig and minnow. 

PM me if you are heading up and want to know where I found fish. 

My kids loved it and can't wait to go back. Nungesser Lake Lodge, once again, proved why they are the best place on the lake to say! Took great care of us and my young kids.

Heading up in two days!! NLL again for us. I did go at that time, weather was cold, rainy, and nasty! Fishing was awesome tho! Fish were shallow, 10 feet or less. Caught my two 40"+ pike that year while reeling in 15-16" walleye. Was able to net both at the same time. 


I am taking my 3 daughters with me this year so I wanted to get into a little warmer whether. I may be hitting may flies tho so I hope the fishing is still good.


I'd go there in June again in a heartbeat! Next time I will invest into better rain gear!! I wore it every day I was there. Sometimes due to rain and other times just for warmth.


Good luck!!

Griz, Hope you had a good time up at Nungesser this year.  We are going next year but moving time from third week of August to June 16-23.  I think you posted previously that you have fished it during that time frame, be interested in any tips.  staying at NLL again.

Heading back up to Nungesser, this time over the week of the 4th of July. I've been there in mid June and early August, but never July. There was a sizable difference in fishing patterns from mid June to early August. Any advise on early July?? My kids are going to finally come with me. I hope they will love the experience as much as I do.

Thanks

We had a great trip to Nungesser Lake Lodge August 8 thru the 15. Group boated a 42" and a 41" Northern. Largest walleye was 27 inches with lots of 24-26" fish. Weather was not typical walleye fishing weather, warm and sunny most days, but we still got on fish each day. Only area that we could not get on them was North Bay. Storey Bay was a great spot as was the rock area just west of the entrance to Storey Bay. Map shows three red bouys but there are only two, drifted along each edge of the line from the two bouys in about 18-20 ft of water and slammed them. North side of what they call "Dog Di#$" island was very productive too. I'd say it was spit 50/50 on fish caught on crawler vs minnoww. Pretty much used bottom bouncers with Lindy rigs all the time.

I stayed at Birch Point Lodge July 26 to Aug. 2. The guy I went with and I had a great time fishing and drinking a few beers. Great lodge, great dock guys, great owner, and a great lake to fish. I hope to fish this lake with my two adult sons sometime.

Oh, that's what I forgot to tell you. The lake it 2 feet deeper than last year and all the jigging walleyes were between 17' and 20'. If you are taking a rookie up there and just want to pound fish, take them to gull rock. Stay on the west side in 20' of water. You will see a marker buoy out there. Anchor or slow drift!! All the 14-18" walleyes you would ever want! My father and I hit 65 in an hour and a half there just vertical jigging leaches from the side of the boat! It was a blast! Have fun!!

Grizzly700,Thanks for the info on Farrar. May not be worth the extra effort but we'll see. Have nephew coming who has never been up North fishing so may have to do it just to give him the full experience. Less than 48 hours and we are on the road. Looks like warm weather up there this week so we might be fishing some deeper water.
