2 years ago today (Aug 20-29) I was on one of the best fishing excursions of my life. 14 hours North of Ottawa, to Nipigon. We fished Lake Nipigon everyday but one for Giant Gators, Massive Lakers & World Class Brookies. Spent the other day on Lake Superior fishing for Smallies with local guide Muzzy Odawa. We also made a quick stop on the Nipigon River for Pinks, on the way back to our camp in South Bay. Between the 3 of us (Tony S., Jordan S.) we caught somewhere between 250-300 fish. 16 Brook Trout- largest 5lbs. 125+ Northern Pike, with 4 over 40”- largest 48.5”. We also had a frenzy with 10 Gators caught in 10 minutes, including a triple header (1 net). All 10 Gators between 35-39.5”. F*%king Nuts!!! 72 Lake Trout- largest 30lbs. One day we had to take a rod out of the holster because we couldn’t keep up with all the action. 22 Lakers hooked up 18 landed in 3 hours. Absolutely insane. 50+ Smallmouth Bass- largest 4lbs caught in 4 hours. Plus, 3 Walleye and 1 Pink Salmon caught. What a trip!!!
