How to Clean Walleye

How to Clean Walleye: 1) Put your knife behind the fin with the blade pointing down. 2) Cut straight down to the backbone without cutting through the backbone, and then turn your knife sideways to point the blade towards the tail. 3) Now cut straight down the backbone to the tail. You will be cutting through thin bones, which we take out later. 4) Now you have the fillet sliced off the fish. The next step is to take out the rib cage. 5) Put your blade at the edge of the rib cage and slice along the rib cage…

6 Reasons to think twice about Fly-in Fishing vs. drive-to fishing camps

6 Reasons to think twice about Fly-in Fishing When we think of “fly-in” fishing, visions of distant Canadian Shield lakes with rustic cabins and isolation come to mind.   Steeped in many years of tradition, it’s a widely held belief that flying into a remote lake equals great fishing.  That may be true, but what if you didn’t have to fly in order to have tremendous fishing? With today’s economic times deeply ingrained into our pocketbooks, we are seeing a paradigm shift in the way people look at Canadian fishing vacations.  Now more than ever, like so many other things, price…

Ontario Lakes with Big Trophy Walleyes

Mike The Guide 2008 Vacation July-August-2008 Chad & Michelle, Thanks for the great trip (July 26, 2008 – August 2, 2008). It was memorable and I’m sure my son Hunter and I will be up for repeat visits in the coming years. During our trip we fished Wilkinson, Tyrol, Northwind, Onaman, and another that I forget. Our first day on Wilkinson was slow so we hired Mike as a guide for the second day. Mike brought us out to Onaman and we filled out our limit of walleye in under an hour. We had a 25″ walleye for each license…

Ontario’s Best Walleye Fishing Lakes

Lots of Walleyes Gary Hamlin 9-Aug-2004 This story is going to sound a little “fishy” to most of you. Darrell took myself and three friends out for a day of fishing. I had heard the stories of his favorite spot, but we were not prepared for the numbers of fish we caught. We were on this spot for about 4.5 hours of fishing, the total number of walleyes caught was 491. Darrell took 150, I took 135, Jeff took 106, and John took 100. That adds up to the greatest day of fishing any of us has ever had. Thanks…
