The lakes in Northwest Ontario are the ideal habitat for this big fish. Classic structure such as saddles, weed flats, mid-lake shoals and sunken islands are places where many big "lunge" can be found. Deep trolling or casting both work well. The time of day, moon phase, water temperature and weather fronts will all have an impact so be prepared. Bring that heavy action rod along with all your casting and trolling baits because you never know what mood these critters are in. Your experience and ability to read conditions will definitely influence your success. Is the next world-record muskellunge swimming in one of our lakes? It's a definite possibility! Try for it on your next Ontario muskie fishing trip.
Many of the members of our Travel Association have lakes that support healthy populations of muskie. Muskie over 50 inches in length and pushing 50 pounds are not uncommon in Northwest Ontario. Whether it's a trophy fish you're after or you just want to enjoy muskie fishing in a wilderness location, we can help you find that perfect fishing spot.
While the quality of the fishing is the most important factor when travelling here, don't overlook the importance of the accommodations choice you'll have to make. Our members offer fully guided American Plan packages, clean and comfortable housekeeping cabins and boat, motor and equipment rentals to ensure your adventure in Sunset Country is a success. For a true wilderness experience, why not rent an exclusive fly in outpost cabin where it's only you and your fishing party on the entire lake? Absolutely no neighbors! These lakes see less than 24 fishing parties a year and can offer some of the best catch and release muskie fishing anywhere.
If you want additional information, our Travel Association also produces a 84 page Travel Guide that includes a poster-sized fishing map of the area. Click here to order your FREE copy or call us toll free at 1-800-665-7567.
