Feature Travel Tips from In-Fisherman Staff and Friends



A name that sends shivers through the most ardent walleye, northern or muskie fishermen. Shorelines of this, the second largest inland lake in Ontario, are rimmed with sand and gravel beaches and as is common with Canadian shield lakes is interrupted with rocky points too numerous to count. Midlake humps and thousands of islands present walleye and northern fishing opportunities that dreams are made of. A structure fisherman's paradise, where sonar skills are fun to practice and all too often rewarding. Silently lurking in picturesque coves and quiet bays are weed patches waiting to be explode with the splash of an angered or feeding muskie. Have you ever felt a muskie's stare?

This vast water system is primarily fed by three huge rivers known as the English from the south, the Vermillion from the east and the Root from the north. Strategically located where these three rivers meet is Chamberlain Narrows and the home of Lac Seul Outposts. From this location you are just moments away from the primary walleye spawning grounds of this majestic water body. Walleyes are in abundance and easy to fool with a jig tipped with your choice of bait. Walleyes in the 6-10 pound class are not a rare occurrence. With such a huge population of feed it is no wonder that world class northerns and muskies find this region of Lac Seul their preferred habitat. Go to top of page

Adventures: Lac Seul...Muskie, Walleye and Pike

Walleyes everywhere and muskies so large as to stretch the imagination. Lac Seul is a jewel you can drive to. Once you get there, however, limited lake access makes fishing some sections of the lake difficult if you don't stay at an outpost.

The lake consists of four major sections and hundreds of thousands of acres of water. Our film crew fished the northeast section from Lac Seul Outposts at Chamberlain Narrows, owned and operated by Ken & Brenda Robins, an hour by boat from an access point near Sioux Lookout, Ontario.

An Ever Present Shot At Huge Walleyes!
The northeast section of Lac Seul offers an ever-present shot at big walleyes. Our fish averaged 2 to 3 pounds and ran to 11 pounds. Each of two boats also landed a muskie a day, and one fish topped 40 pounds. Lac Seul may be the last bastion of super huge fish on the Canadian Shield. A pox on you if you go to kill a fish, even if it's a 50-pounder.

Although we didn't concentrate on pike, we did land several 15 to 20 pound fish incidental to muskie and walleye fishing. Fishing near cabbage beds near spawning bays should produce wonderful fish during early summer.

Lac Seul Outposts is a modern facility, with deluxe cabins complete with indoor plumbing.
