Fishing at Big North Lodge starts right from our docks. Throughout the season, from May to October, fishing is excellent for Walleye, Northern Pike, Bass and there is the ever elusive Muskie for the experienced, patient fisherman.
Five fishing lakes, Gun Lake, Little Sand Lake, Big Sand Lake, Rough Rock Lake and Pistol Lake, on the Winnipeg River System can be reached by boat without portaging.
Our guides are experienced and well qualified to make your fishing trip a memorable success. Who can forget the famous shore lunches, expertly prepared by your guide. A feast of fresh walleye with all the trimmings is well worth telling your friends about.
We encourage fishermen to participate in this Catch and Release Program. Big North Lodge is a member of the “Minaki Fish & Wildlife Association”. The aim of the Association is to promote the “Live Release of Trophy Fish” to help maintain the Winnipeg River System as one of the best for trophy fishing. In recognition for participation in “LIVE RELEASE”, guests are presented with a trophy release pin!
Safe, comfortable 17′ Lund Outfitters featuring pedestal seats, non-slip marine vinyl floors, live wells, new 4-stroke 50 h.p. Yamaha motors with electric start, and power trim. Fish all day in comfort. Trolling motors and fish locators are available for rent.
Our docks with individual slips, provide convenient, sheltered docking for our Lund Outfitters, as well as docking for guests’ own boats. Power available at docks.
Bring your fishing tackle, rain gear, rubber boots and don’t forget your camera and memory cards for those moments you will wish to remember. We also recommend you bring warm clothing…sweaters, jackets, etc…for May, September and October and for those chilly early mornings of July and August.
