Wow what a trip! We booked a trip at the Minneapolis Sport show this year to go to Browns Clearwater West Lodge located in Atikokan, Ontario. This for me was going to be a reward trip for my oldest son (12). He was struggling a bit with his grades so I made a deal with him and he came through. Whew! I had a bit of money into it if he couldn’t go. There were also 4 other people going on the trip. Our package at the lodge included an extremely nice/clean cabin that slept 8, 16’ Lund boats with 25 horse electric start Honda four strokes (gas included), Bait/ice was also included in our package. The only thing we need to do was bring our rods/reels/tackle and food. We did bring portable fish locaters witch proved to be very beneficial. It is a 4 hour trip to cross in International Falls from my place then another 2 hours to the resort from there. We had birth certificates, Passports and a letter from my wife to take the kid in. We had no problems getting in or back out. We fished for 3 ½ days total. Our main target was walleyes and our off time was split between groups doing the Lake trout or trophy pike thing. There were tons of walleyes caught between 16 and 22 inches and the largest was 27 inches. The best lures were yellow and orange 3ft lindy rigs with nightcrawlers. Yes Keith the sassy shad worked but was not the ticket to catching. The smallmouth were in full swing and were also a blast to catch. My son had a blast when he was bored of walleye casting a Hulla-popper out and watching them explode on it. This will be a trip that I will never forget!

I've found the stained lakes in canada like live bait ie.. crawlers ,minnow or leeches.It might have been the color of the shad,but when I have gone into the BWCAW I've always brought a few pounds of rainbows with Mr.Twister white split tail bodies.

Hey Tony & wife went you. It looks like you had a great trip.
No tires blew or anything. Did you bring your blue rag for posterity?
Great pics eh!I know what you mean when you look at the pic and you are there not here.

We had 3 days of eating fried fish two times a day. On the fourth day half way to the "spot" the blue rag made an appearance as Mr. walleye needed to escape!

No mishaps just good clean fun!
