Onaman Lake

Onaman Lake – Tips for Catching Huge Walleyes   To put it bluntly, Onaman Lake is the premier walleye fishery in Ontario.  It contains the largest and most prolific walleyes of lakes contained within the province.  If you’re fortunate enough to fish it, you’ll be startled by the power and fight of the fish.  What follows is a detailed discussion on the location, tackle and techniques as well as the logistics to plan when catching Onaman Lake walleyes.   Location Size and Depths The lake is considered big by Northern Ontario standards.  Stretching close to 15 miles long and 5…

Shortly after the photos are taken, the BRT team helps the hunter roll his harvest into the recovery sled.  From there, tradition states the hunter alone, makes the 200 yard trek dragging his bear in a show of respect to all things…
