Arrived yesterday afternoon at Mashkinonje Lodge, ON on Nipissing’s west-arm to pre-fish for a TV show we are shooting Tues., & Wed. When I arrived the owner Regan Thompson had just finished releasing a 53″ musky he caught about 300 yd. in front of the lodge. We went out today, but unfortunately the conditions were very poor. We had a drop in temperature of about 15-degrees from yesterday, strong north-east winds and rain…..no weather to be out on the water, but what the heck, we went out. I managed to land several pike and smallmouth bass casting Rapala Dives To series crankbaits in shallow water from 2-6′ using Rapala Shift & Concept Ti outfits loaded with Sufix 832 braided line and Sufix Fluorocarbon leaders. Pouring out now, hope it passes through so we can give it a go again tomorrow.
For those of you that enjoy our fall colors and the chance of catching small & largemouth bass, walleye, pike and big musky, Mashkinonje Lodge, ON is the place to go. They supply everything you need for a great fishing vacation or family get-away!
