Aug 17 -24 Group
John Mich, Rick Sweeney, Jamie Riani, Bill Kallenburg, Steve Schmidt and Richard Schmitz embarked on their week to Taltson with high hopes and many memories of previous trips into the best pike fishing on earth.  What they got was 5 weather fronts, 180 degree wind changes every day, one day of 40+ MPH winds and another trip better than most will ever experience.
The pike never cooperated as they have in the past, but the boys from south of the border still put the hurt on close to 700 fish.  The largest fish was a 47” brut caught by Richard Schmitz and the group as a whole averaged 1 pike 41”+,  for every 9 pike they caught.   It was nice to note that a clockwork walleye pattern has been established for july-september. If you want walleyes by the dozens, we now have that to offer in a very specific area as well.


Report from Greg Hochstette

I just returned from a fishing trip to Taltson Bay Big Pike Lodge in the Northwest Territory of Canada.  The fishing for big pike was awesome !!!  Myself and my 3 friends caught 65 pike 41" (considered a master in Canada) and over -- with our biggest being 48" and numerous 46', 45", 44" and 43".  I personally caught 14 fish 41" and over with my biggest being 46". We also had many fish in the 38" to 40" inch
I have attached a few pictures to give you a flavor of the trip.  I have also included several pictures of the lodge which was very comfortable.
