About Northern Pike Fishing on Eagle Lake Ontario Canada

Pike Fishing

If you’re looking for outstanding pike fishing to be part of your Andy Myers Lodge experience, Eagle Lake has it. We have a large population of northern pike thanks to a 25-year old slot limit of 27.5 inches to 35 inches in length. With their reckless abandon and willingness to strike under almost any conditions, pike of all sizes, as well as trophy fish of over 20 pounds and 42 inches, are caught on Eagle Lake.

World-Class Northern Pike Fishing Trips at Andy Myer's Lodge

You’ll never forget the time your spent catching northern pike at Andy Myers Lodge.

It’s true that muskies and pike look very similar. They even utilize many of the same foraging areas and they inhabit the same types of structures at some times of the season, but they’re still very different fish. It takes a deep, cool lake to house the biggest pike. At Eagle Lake in Ontario, Canada, we can show you techniques and the areas where the water never goes above 65 degrees Fahrenheit, greatly increasing your chances of bagging the trophy fish of your dreams.

Catching a huge fish is a great accomplishment during one of our pike fishing trips, but the biggest fish aren’t the only pike that are worth your time. Smaller, eating-sized fish and the occasional slot-pike can be caught while casting in shallow bays, weed beds, reed edges, and shallow rock bars at virtually all times of the season. Not only are these fish great practice for our youngest anglers, catching a few and cooking them up for lunch means you’ll have enough energy to go after that big fish next time.

Expert tips on finding the biggest fish

We don’t just turn you loose on the lake at Andy Myer’s Lodge. We live and breathe fishing northern pike fishing, which means we’re able to pass our expertise on to you. With our support, our visitors regularly tell us they experienced the most satisfying pike fishing trips of their lives.

The best times for northern pike fishing trips when it comes to larger fish in shallow water are in the spring and fall. From the season opener which on Eagle Lake is the third Saturday in May till approx. 3nd week of June , the water typically stays below 60 degrees Fahrenheit, which increases your chances of boating a huge pike on Eagle Lake. For an added adventure and opportunity, the bays and creeks of our very deep, clear boat cache and portage lakes this shallow opportunity extends even further into late June.

As the temperatures rise above 60 degrees Fahrenheit, you will still be able to find small to medium-sized pike in shallow water, but the biggest fish will head into the depths. The biggest pike tend to hang out over the main basin, moving on and off the reefs where walleyes like to congregate. The largest pike boated from mid-July to mid-September are caught by walleye fishermen off the reefs, or those targeting pike in the same areas where walleyes, ciscos, and whitefish can be found.

Late September through October are the best times to catch the biggest fish because water temperatures drop below 50 - 60 degrees Fahrenheit. During this time, large northern pike slide up to the edges of shallower structures adjacent to the deepest basins pursuing baitfish schools and putting on the feed bag before the approaching winter and ice up making them much easier to locate and catch.

Tackle and Equipment Recommendations for Pike Fishing

You’re welcome to venture out onto the lake and try your own methods of catching the biggest pike, but we’d also be happy to provide you with some tackle and equipment recommendations that can increase your chances of success.

During the earliest part of the season when majority of the fish are in shallow, casting, jigging, and long line trolling tend to be the most successful ways to find the biggest and best fish. Use a 50-series bass/light musky casting outfit between 6 and a half feet to 8 and a half feet. We recommend 14 – #17 mono or a #50 braid with a #60-80 floro leader. An Abu or Shimano 300 to 400 series spinning reel on a med to med heavy 6 to 7-foot rod will work well too.

The time of the season can and will dictate the type of presentation you will use. If you’re concentrating on the warmer water periods and deeper water structures, use a half to 1-ounce Lindy or Carolina rig with 3 feet of #20-40 floro and 6-10-inch live suckers. A #27-40 stranded wire leader and a #2 hook quickset rig is also a preferred catch and release option for live bait. Trolling with deep diving crankbaits around mid-lake basin reefs and suspended baitfish schools as well as vertical jigging spoons, Ripp’n Dawgs, Bondy baits, and large Kalin’s flukes or grubs on ½ – 1 ½ oz. jigs can be deadly deeper water presentations. At Andy Myers Lodge, we’re especially fond of rubber swim baits with sinking countdown ability. Bull Dawgs, Medusas, Red October tubes, Water wolf, and Boggs paddle tails are especially effective on large, deep pike.

During the season when pike can be found in shallower waters, suspended minnow baits like Husky Jerks, spoons, spinners, and spinnerbaits are standard offerings and great options. Rubber baits, like the smaller spring and regular Bull Dawg, non-or slightly weighted Kalin’s flukes, and dead baiting with ciscos and suckers on quickset rigs are also very effective.

We have many other equipment suggestions, as well as tips and tricks that we can arm you with before you head out on the water. Just ask!
