This is our first trip to Andy Myers the second week of September, just looking for some tips on staying here and what to expect?
We have done 4 Canadian fly-in trips over the last 7 years, but this is our first drive to destination with the ultimate American Plan Package.
With these types of packages everything is done for you and of course there is tipping involved with every aspect of the stay there from guides, dock hands, meal service, cabin service. For anyone that has stayed here what are the tips that you handed out and for what service. This one of the reasons we always done a fly-in because all that added up to the cost of a fly-in trip. But we for sure wanted to give Eagle Lake a try and we chose Andy Myers because of the excellent reviews they get. We have 3 days of guide service with our package.
I am torn between bringing my boat with all the electronics and trolling motor with all the link features with spot lock to going to the basic electronics and a trolling motor that might not have spot lock. I am also worried about the rocks with bringing my boat or using theirs with the insurance plan. Any suggestions here that can sway my decision one way or another? Do they even have spot lock on any of their boats?
Last what size jigs and what pound test line for the walleyes do most use here? On our standard fly-ins we were mostly 6-pound test as most fish were 18 to 22 inches with an occasional 28 incher, which was not an issue with new 6-pound test. I am not a huge Musky/Northern person and normally get away with throwing a silver minnow with a 4-inch twister tail threaded on the hook and have caught many pike to 40 inches on this setup. I would imagine this would be the same here. My arm just cannot take throwing those large musky lures all day long, thus the reason I mainly fish for walleye in Canada.
One other option for my boat being towed north is I can bring the downriggers to try to tie into the monster Lake Trout here as well.
Thank you in advance and hope I can get some replies.
