Minor Bay Lodge - Wollaston Lake Northern Pike Fishing

Minor Bay Lodge is located on the southwest corner of Wollaston Lake, Canada’s 13th largest lake and the spawning ground of monstrous northern pike and lake trout. The lake covers an area of over 1,300 square miles, with over 800 square miles of water within its boundaries. Minor Bay Lodge is open June and July, only two months for peak fishing.

Minor Bay Fishing

Minor Bay Lodge The Lodge is located in a sheltered bay in the southwest corner of Wollaston Lake, right in the heart of Monster Pike Country. The lake’s south end is all about structure—marshy spawning bays, peninsulas, sand and rock bars, plus a huge number of weed beds. This is ideal habitat for northern pike to spawn, feed and grow to incredible size.
Minor Bay is located in the best location on Wollaston for access to pike and lake trout. There are places relatively close to the lodge for both species. Wollaston Lake is at the northern end of the walleye range, so they tend to catch larger walleye, but not high numbers. The best walleye fishing is at the river inlets and outlets to and from the lake, which is a 45 to 60 minute boat ride from the lodge. Guests don't usually come to Wollaston to fish for walleye.
Travel time:  Great pike fishing is within 15 to 60 minutes of the Lodge. The average boat ride is around 20 to 30 minutes before you start fishing. A lot depends on the direction and strength of the wind as to how far the guides travel and where they go.

In the morning, you'll meet the Minor Bay Lodge group in the lobby at 5:30 a.m. for the one hour and 45-minute charter flight to Points North Landing. Then you'll take a 45-minute bus ride to the Lodge. You'll have breakfast followed by an orientation, then you'll get in a full day's fishing.

Evening Fishing:

If you want to fish in the evening, you are not charged for the use of boats, motors or gas. Due to the nature of the lake, it is a lodge policy that a guide must accompany the guests on any evening fishing excursion. Guides do this on a voluntary basis, as evening fishing is after their regular working hours. A tip of $40.00 to $50.00 per boat is customary.
