Experience Walleye Fishing Trips of a Lifetime at Andy Myer's Lodge
Nowhere else in the world will you experience the same unforgettable walleye fishing trip!
Eagle Lake is considered to be in the top ten of all fisheries in Ontario, Canada thanks in large part to the mandatory slot limit of 18 to 23 inches that was imposed 28 years ago and many conservation-minded anglers voluntarily releasing fish over 23 inches. According to MNR studies and creel surveys, your chances of catching a fish that’s 27 to 30 inches or more is one of the highest in Canada at Eagle Lake. You can feel confident knowing that bagging a huge walleye is only a matter of time when you book a stay at Andy Myer’s Lodge.
Not only will you be able to tell your friends back home that you caught a fish “This big!” when you go walleye fishing with us, you’ll also have plenty of opportunities to catch smaller fish that are perfect for lunch or dinner. Just imagine enjoying the delectable taste of freshly caught walleye fillets for shore lunch on a wilderness island over an open fire while you are attempting to catch that big trophy fish the same day. As a matter of fact, there are so many walleye-catching opportunities in Eagle Lake that you’re likely to run out of bait before you’re finished for the day!
Walleye Fishing With the Experts
We want your walleye fishing trip to be successful. From providing you with a fully rigged boat and turning you loose on the water with a detailed map of hotspots to professionally guided fishing excursions, we love giving our guests advice that provides them with the best chance of success at that personal best walleye catch.
One of the best things about walleye fishing in Ontario, Canada is that your tackle box can be kept quite simple. When getting ready to head out on the water, make sure you have:
- Lindy and/or Carolina rigs
- Spinner rigs
Plan to carry a variety of jigs in weights from 1/8 to 3/8 ounces in colors like blue, black, chartreuse, and shiny lead. Our expert fishermen prefer the Bait Rigs Odd'Ball stand up jig for most rock and reef applications and the Slo Poke for weed and grass presentations. Good hooks and stand-up or hook-up designs increase hooking percentages and success.
When it comes to bait, we recommend topping your jigs with minnows, leeches, or crawlers, depending on when, where you’re fishing, and current conditions. Be sure to include in your arsenal some plastics such as kalins grubs, flukes, and Berkley Gulp because on many days you are sure to run out of live bait the action can be so hot.
Having the right tackle and bait are essential to catching multiple fish on your walleye trip, but knowing where to find them is important too. During late ice-out on the lake you will find walleye in or near spawning areas. During normal ice-out and early in the season you’ll find walleye in warming bays with emerging grass, near shallow rocks, downed timber, and along the windblown shorelines.
As the season transitions into summer, you will find some walleyes in weed beds. However, the most consistent biters and biggest concentrations will be on main lake humps, reefs, points, and hard bottom areas.
Midsummer brings along with it a suspended trolling bite. Using trolling cranks on top of rising cisco schools over deep basins is the best way to catch a big fish.
As fall approaches and the thermocline starts to drop, some walleye will continue to move down deeper into the lake basin towards the mud line and hard bottom areas. Others move into shallow weeds, while still others follow migrating schools of shiner and minnows into current areas and channels.
