Trophy Muskie Fishing on Eagle Lake, Ontario, Canada

Muskie Fishing

When a pike or walleye angler has the fish of a lifetime on the line and suddenly a shadowy monster emerges from the depths to crush the trophy sideways in its jaws, the true top of the food chain in Eagle Lake is revealed. The lake is famous as one of only a handful of places that have produced true 60 inch, 60-pound muskies, and the biggest Eagle Lake fish was caught by a guest at historic Andy Myers Lodge in Ontario, Canada.

Unforgettable Muskie Fishing Trips

The complex structure and rich forage base of Eagle Lake, Ontario provides perfect habitat for a genetically pure strain of giant muskies. For a generation, essentially all muskie fishing on this storied water has been 100% catch and release, with the result that you will see fish that scare you. During the Muskie fishing season at Andy Myers Lodge, at least several trophy muskies over 50 inches are boated every week.

As the top predator, these beasts are afraid of nothing and chase baits all the way to the side of your boat. If you are good or lucky, you can get them to strike the lure literally at your feet, an explosion that ranks as the greatest thrill in freshwater angling. Many experts believe that the next world record muskie might come from Eagle Lake, and no lodge has more history, a better location, or more experienced guides than Andy Myers Lodge. It is the ultimate destination for your muskie fishing trip in Canada.

Muskie Fishing Season

Muskies spawn later in the spring and the muskie fishing season is closed until the third Saturday in June to protect them. In late June and early July, they can be found near the spawning grounds in shallow bays with emerging weeds, or nearby rocky points, bars, or the saddles between islands. As the weeds thicken in July, look for a topwater muskie bite. You will not soon forget the sight of a muskie striking your surface lure.

With the warming water of summer, muskies can be found almost anywhere, from weedbeds to island points, to reefs, channels, and deep humps. Like 800 pound gorillas, they go wherever they want to, chasing food and comfortable conditions. Muskies are called the fish of 10,000 casts because they are such effective predators that they can lounge around in the knowledge that they will easily catch a meal whenever they are hungry. Be ready for the windows when a seemingly empty lake suddenly comes alive with hungry muskies chasing nearly every cast. These are the moments muskie anglers live for. Check out our Trophy Muskie Special Week with Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Famer Spence Petros.

The cooling water and shorter days of fall trigger muskies to feed heavily to build an egg mass and prepare for the rigors of winter. This is the time for the justly famous Fall Trophy Muskie Hunt at Andy Myers Lodge, when many of the biggest fish of the year have been caught. You will be in the boat with one of the finest guides anywhere, casting, trolling, and fishing live bait for the fish of a lifetime. This legendary fishing books up fast, so call Andy Myers Lodge today to schedule your muskie fishing trip in Canada.
