Thanks for the updates as always,
I'm booked for the 2-4 of jan so hopefully it'll be frozen enough by then.
This'll be my first time up so any tips on how to fish this lake are greatly appreciated.

it will all depend on your provider, if he has his huts on the fish then it is generally slow till just before the sun sets, make sure that is when you have fresh bait on....then wait for the tip downs to start. If your provider has you on perch beds, well then you have action forever...lol. Where we set up in Calander Bay we can play with pike in shallow water during the day and catch the odd walleye, but we have to wait for close to sun down for walleye action, then we are busy for about an hour

Thanks for the info,
we are staying at bear creek cottages. I've attached a link
it's about 12 km's west of Callander bay. I don't know if you're familiar with this area
but if you are, do you know if this is a perch bed, shoal etc.

You'll be very happy with Bear Creek. Shawn and the gang do a great job and always put you on fish.

Good choice Blackfish, you will more than likely be in around 30 feet of water and you never know what might come up the hole......perch, walleye, cisco, pike, white fish, ling cod......we have caught them all over the years. Last year Shawn was out fishing with his kids and he hooked into a sturgeon so like I said you never know. We usually fish just off the bottom but always good to move a line up and down the water column, this is where we found and caught some pike over the years. Good luck and let us know how you did when you get back.

We have been with Shawn since he took over Idle Tyme, great guy and his crew are top notch.

Thanks man! I too was once a southerner; pining away all year for my one week off when I could go up north and catch and eat fish. Now I just have to have a few hours and I'm on the water. Feels great!

It has been neat as well as challenging to try to keep up every day, but I am aiming to keep posting until the opener...Then if all works according to plan I'll be too busy catching fish to be making videos.

I know this thread deals with north shore ice but I'm including an east shore (North Bay) report as well.
The lake has 3" of ice at a lake depth of about 2 1/2 feet, it might decrease further out. There is also between 4-5" of loose snow over top.
