Northern Pike fishing was slow, but starting to improve. Fish were in 8-10 feet of water on structure, some in deep weed beds. Walleye action was fast, several in the 22"-25" range, largest was 26-3/4". Back trolling with minnows was most productive. Gold or copper colours were best lure colours.

Fishing was better earlier in week. Mornings were slow all week. Northern bite was slow, but 10+ over 30" including 37.5" and 40". Surface temperature was about 72 degrees Fahrenheit. Lots of Walleyes, biggest was 22". Sound end along rock walls in 10-15 feet of water was best for Walleyes. Perch shad rap or something with orange in 4' to 12' for Northerns. Excellent week. Nothing spectacular, but steady and nice weather.

First off, thanks to all the Clark's for making our trip wonderful!. It's great to see that you've picked up the service right where L&M left off. A fresh minnow supply every other day really puts your operation over the top and was GREATLY appreciated. It was also great to talk to Wayne and fascinating to learn more about his bait operation.
Fishing was the best we've ever had - probably due to live bait each day. We caught two 27" walleye and three 25" walleye. Most fish were caught in 10'-12' with jigs and minnows. We didn't target northerns on this trip, but many were caught jigging and several engulfed our walleyes as we brought them to the boat. We also were impressed with the killer loons! We saw one loon swallow and injured 13" walleye and couldn't believe that was possible. Then on the last day, a loon chased one of our walleyes as we reeled it in, and then promptly attacked it upon release. Amazing.
All in all it was a memorable trip - great weather, awesome fishing, well-kept accommodations and equipment, and wonderful hosts. Can't wait to get back next year!

Wright Lake August 2 - August 9, 2014
Stayed overnight at Kay Air before flying in. Cabin was great, good individual beds for all 6 of us. Smooth flight to Wright Lake, then mix of rain and fog for two days. Fishing excellent right away. Walleyes concentrated on points and rocky reefs, especially around the islands. Depth changes in 6 to 20 feet most productive. Northerns found in the weeds and often in packs. Fished all the lakes. Water level adequate, but falling. Big northern was 40 inches, walleye 24. Group saw 2 caribou, 1 moose, and bear with 3 cubs. Saw a feeding frenzy with gulls and loons going after a big pod of minnows out in 20 feet of water, many eagles. By Monday, weather cleared and rest of week was perfect summer days. great trip !! Service from the Clarks was outstanding with fresh minnows every two days! Generator for the cabin much appreciated. Motors ran flawlessly. This was first experience with Northern Lights, we are really impressed !! Can't wait to return.
