As a newbie that would love to make it to that lake someday. Where do you guys start? as far as landing and getting on the ice and general locations...south end or north? sleep on the ice? or a cheap hotel near by? It's a little over-whelming to look at that lake and take a stab.

I'm sure talking with some of the people up there would help once in town but just curious as to what all of you do when do make the trip?

I'm sure this thread has been started before if so just post the link and i'll take a gander.

Thanks.

Well I am very new to it also (second year ) but can answer to best of.my knowledge. Most the fishing is done on the south basin part of lake. Access point are south east and south west. Believe there was a map in one of the old post showing the accesses. There's no sleeper shacks or anything like that so most ppl stay in. Hotel in nearby town. It's pretty much a featureless lake so moving and finding fish is key. Sure others can help more. Leaving middle next week and am pumped

The best information and knowledge you will attain is by researching it on forums on the web. This site has a lot of information you can search for as well as In-depth outdoors. I spent hours and hours doing research before I even planned my first trip.

Sounds good guys thanks for the advice. I'm not one for lack of research... just thought i might be able to get a head start which looks like i have...much appreciated...won't be headed that way until next year at least so looks like i'll have plenty of time to figure it out.

hopefully there are a few monsters left for us :)

Number one thing is to figure out your schedule and book your lodging in advance.

What places would you suggest retro from previous experiences? which I know you have from all your past posts from the trips you've taken...actually it's kind of how i got the itch to look into it.

PM me if needed...like i said wouldn't be a trip until next year...maybe pair it with a jets vs wild game...

Thanks.

I have been doing this trip for 16 years now. Always in March. I can remember my first trip when we headed out to the lake with a map drawn by hand to the landing and we looked out on the lake and didn't see another person. I turned to my body and said how the hell are going to find fish here. Well we found fish and have found fish every trip. I have stayed at several locations from gimli over to balsam harbor. There is a casino on the east side that has rooms...A hotel in Selkirk a town just south of the lake. Motel in Winnipeg beach I don't recommend as the guy running it was an ahole...There are numerous cabins houses that get rented out each year as well. Google can find some but meeting some locals you will hear of more optuons. We have been staying at a house for the last several years. Casino is fine but you are kind of stuck for food as it is hard to cook in a hotel room. I hear the newer hotel in Selkirk is pretty nice but never stayed there.

We have stayed at the Selkirk Inn, Hamilton house(last choice), but mostly at the South Beach. There is a new hotel called the Canalta in Selkirk. It looks really nice, but is the most expensive, good reviews. Up the west shore in Gimli is the Lakeview Resort, has good reviews from friends. I am trying a new one this weekend and will report back.
