AMAZING VIDEO HUGE PIKE IN SPAWNING BAYS


Hard to tell from the picture but these are huge pike. They are about 43-47 inches. There was one that was close to 50 inches.  We saw about 15 big pike.  I’m sure there were many more that we could not see thru the weeds. They have finished spawning and are just laying around warming up in the shallow water.the warmth helps them recuperate. The black bottom in this area warms up fast in the sunlight.  It is very difficult to  get a boat close enough to get a photo like this. Hayden used his drone.  We have some great video as well - I will upload asap.
The little males were about fifty yards away. We saw dozens of them along the side of the creek.  The males in most lakes are all about 20 inches long. Some maybe close to 30 but 90 % are in the 20 inch range.


Hayden and I fished for literally 30 seconds and each of us hooked into nice size walleye.
Released of course. But definitely funeral to catch.







HAYDEN AND I TOOK A BIT OF TIME AND WENT LOOKING AT THE BIG PIKE IN THEIR SPAWNING AREAS. WE TOOK SOME AWESOME VIDEOS AND PHOTOS WHERE YOU CAN SEE 3 HUGE FEMALES RIGHT CLOSE TO EACH OTHER.


 DURING THE ACTUAL SPAWN THE TINY MALES (18-20”) RISK THEIR LIVES BY GETTING RIGHT UP NEXT TO THE MAMMOTH FEMALES. AT TIMES THERE CAN BE 10 OR MORE OF THESE TINY MALES SLILTHERING ALL OVER AND AROUND ONE 50” FEMALE.  A FEW DAYS OR EVEN HOURS LATER THOSE SAME FEMALES WILL HAPPILY EAT THE FATHER OF THEIR BABIES.
SO TODAY THE LITTLE MALES ARE ABOUT 50 YARDS AWAY ALONG EACH SIDE OF THE CREEK. WE COUNTED ABOUT 60 OF THEM.
 WE ALSO SAW MANY  THOUSANDS OF  SUCKERS JAMMED IN BELOW THE LILTTLE WATER FALLS.  AND ABOUT A DOZEN SMALL MALE WALLEYE IN THE 250 YARD STRETCH. I CAN ENVISION MANY HUGE FEMALE WALLEYE SPAWNING IN AMONGST THE ROCKS BELOW THAT FAST FLOWING WATER.
BACK TO THE PIKE.
SEVERAL OF THESE FISH WERE OVER 45 INCHES. WE DIDN’T HAVE MUCH BATTERY TIME ( ABOUT 10 MINUTES) AND THE WIND WAS VERY STRONG.  THE WAVES AND LIGHT ANGLE MADE IT DIFFICULT TO SEE INTO THE WATER. BUT I BEILEVE I SAW ONE FISH OVER 50 INCHES. SHE WAS IN REALLY HEAVY COVER AND VERY DIFFICULT TO SPOT.  THE VIDEO CLIP I WILL TRY TO UPLOAD SHOWS 3 FEMALES ALL IN THE 45 INCH RANGE. I HAVE SEEN MANY 50 INCH PIKE IN THIS LOCATION AND  WE HAVE CAUGHT DOZENS OF 46-48 INCHE PIKE OUT OF THIS AREA.

2018 Ontario Ice Out Report Nungesser Lake, Anglers Kingdom



2018 ICE OUT AND CHRONICLE OF GETTING CAMP READY. 


APRIL 28 
Well the snow has finally melted off the ice. We had some rain a few nights ago and some snow yesterday. So with the sun today the ice has melted about 2-4 feet away from the beach in front of camp.

Here is the first of several photos chronicaling  the ice going off Nungesser lake in 2018.



We made two trips to the road today. Lake was good. Trail from Nungesser to the road was pretty rough. Most snow gone, several areas with 1-2 feet of water. Made it interesting.  Will try to get some pics of it next trip.



Paul and Lester working on the deck for cabin 2. It is 42 wide x 16 feet deep.

APRIL 29
PERFECT CONDITIONS FOR MELTING ICE - 20 C AND WINDY



May 2, 2018
Was cold and snowing yesterday and cool today. So ice not melting fast.










MAY 3. - COATINGOF ICE ON THE OPEN WATER AREAS IN THE MORNING.
WARM ABOUT 15 LIGHT WINDS



ON THE RIGHT YOU CAN SEE HOW MUCH SAND IN FILLING OUR PASSAGE TO NORTH BAY.  NEED A BACKHOE TO DIG IT OUT.

HAYDEN PUT A MOTOR ON THE 20 FOOT  LAKE WINNIPEG YAWL .  I BOUGHT I A FEW YEARS AGO AND WE NEVER GOT A MOTOR ON IT. I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING HOW IT HANDLES A HEAVY LOAD AND BIG WAVES. THE COMMERCIAL FISHERMAN ON LAKE WINNIPEG DESIGNED AND BUILD THEM FOR HUGE LAKE WINNIPEG.

HAYDEN WITH 46" THRU ICE



I found this ice fishing photo of Hayden catching a Gigantic 46 inch pike thru the ice.
That was a great day. I remember we saw about a dozen Caribou on the lake.



This screen shot of Haydens Friend Kai with the largest Walleye he has ever caught. it was a beauty caught right off the dock at camp.


I was just messing around with a program that I downloaded.
the program makes it easy to cut the people out so can paste peoples image over a background photo.
I will have to spend some time and make some more like this.
I did the same for the main photo on the top of this blog. However I don't have the full version of photoshop on my Mac and don't want to spend $2,000 for the Mac version. I don't have the time and energy to piece together all the programs or Apps to get all this done. It is fun and I enjoy sharing the results with all of you.

Rene caught this Burbot half a mile from camp.
It is longer than the official Ontario Record.

A rare and unique catch of any size.

 A True trophy to any angler.






This one was caught the first season we operated.

Mike and Rick have been coming up each September and seem to always catch a few Giant Pike.
They do well trolling crankbaits near whitefish spawning bays.

2017 SEASON OVER TOO SOON.

Well 2017 is in the books and it was a great summer. Fishing was even better than ever. Many guests commented that they were catching more big fish. This is likely due to people having learned the lake after visiting several times. I have often heard guests saying that “the more I learn this like the better I like it”

Here are a few pics from 2017















































With his BIGGEST PIKE EVER
