Corine and I made a quick trip out to Wabigoon Lake, near Dryden On, to try and catch a fall muskie. We've never been on Wabigoon before, but did some exploring, and despite some rather unpleasant, windy fall weather, we managed to find some fish! Late in day 2 I managed to hook up with a muskie, pitching a bucktail in some weedy shallows. After boating a muskie, we decided to investigate a hot tip we got from the owner Len, and did it ever pay off! We got into a serious school of Crappie, and over the next several days we had an absolute blast catching some serious slabs. Mixed in with the odd walleye and sauger, it was an absolute blast, and those crappie made for some spectacular table fare. Definitely a trip I would love to do again! Bonny Bay Camp was a wonderful place to stay, in a beautiful location right on Wabigoon, and the fishing opportunities appear to be endless!
