FLY-IN LAKE TROUT Fishing
Trout Lake is home to the best lake trout fishing in our northern area. If you haven't pulled in a heavy trout, then you're missing an opportunity for a major fishing adventure. Once you start catching these beauties, you'll be hooked for a life time.
Early spring is a blast; the lakers are full of vim and vigor and many can be taken from the surface. Fish the shallow water reefs, sunken rocky islands and the underwater points of Trout Lake. Cast or troll using medium or deep diving crank baits in various sizes and colours, or use 2 - 4 inch spoons in silver or a silver combo. You can catch lots of lakers running 4 to 10 lbs. with trophies in the 18 to 50 lb. size.
Summer time; warm breezes and the trout go deeper. Troll using a 3 way swivel with a 10 oz. weight and a flashy silver spoon. Or vertical jig with a big 2 oz. jig in white, orange or yellow. Fish the deep water humps with rocky bottoms and the boulder strewn flats. Summer trout will also be in the deep holes either between islands or in the main body of Trout Lake. Try fishing slots where the big trout lie along the steep sides. If you've got a small portable downrigger, bring it along and use a Sutton spoon, Doctor spoon or a Red Eye to entice the trout. You'll swear you were troutin' the territories minus the bugs.
In the fall, as the weather cools, the trout are ready for a fight. They're leaving their deep summer spots and heading for the shallows. They'll be back at the shallow water reefs, sunken rocky islands and the underwater points of Trout Lake. Use your spring lures on them, try medium or deep diving crank baits and various spoons such as a 5 of Diamonds. Try casting or trolling small to medium spinners. These fall lakers will hit your lure with great gusto. They're ready for a showdown and you'll wind up the winner. Catch all the 6 to 8 pounders you can shake a rod at. The biggest one so far was a startling 54 pounds.
JOYCE LAKE OUTPOST
Joyce Lake- its claim to fame - the titanic trophy pike that inhabit her waters. There's an army of savage Northerns in the 18 to 33 lb. size.
Question is: ARE YOU READY FOR A BATTLE?
Joyce Lake is 38 air miles northeast of Red Lake. This tea stained lake is 3 X 5 miles long and comprised of numerous islands, sand beaches, weed beds and bays. Its average depths range from 6 feet to 25 feet. Look at the map of Joyce Lake, noting our ideal spot...where would you try your luck?
Many TROPHY PIKE are captured and released during the Spring, Summer and Fall.
In the springtime sight fish for the trophies in the shallow waters. In the summer, angle the cabbage beds and points for the biggies. In the fall, get out your big crankbaits, these gluttonous big pike are after them. Any month will find you catching and releasing top quality trophy pike.
How about some delicious WALLEYES?
You'll catch many walleyes running 2 lb. each. Some guests have reported releasing walleye in the 10 lb. trophy size. Although Joyce Lake is primarily a place you go for big pike, you'll get your share of walleyes spring, summer and fall. How about trolling right in front of your cabin? You'll catch lots for lunch in less than an hour.
WHEN YOU FLY IN......
On your day of arrival, Jim or his pilot with the 185 floatplane is there ready to greet you. He'll check over your equipment, and give you maps and pointers. Get a handle ready. Your radio at Joyce Lake connects you to our lodge at Trout Lake. The 185 is stationed at Booi's lodge. Give us a shout and tell us about your trophies.
YOUR RUSTIC COTTAGE
Your cottage is nestled in a sheltered bay on the southeast side of the lake. It's 20' X 32' with a 12' screened-in-porch. It features a kitchen, propane fridge and stove. Single beds with good mattresses assure you of a restful sleep, while a wood burning heater will keep you toasty warm on those chilly Canadian nights. This cabin is spacious, cleaned by you and your group and maintained, BUT DEFINITELY RUSTIC. Some folks might say it separates the men from the boys, the women from the girls. If you are looking for ultra-modern accommodations , try our fly-in only lodge on Trout Lake.
Boats & Motors
For your boating and fishing pleasure, we have a fleet of safe 16' boats powered by dependable new-every-year 9.9 h.p motors. These boats and motors are constantly checked on a regular basis. A spare motor, paddles, and all the mixed gas you can burn are supplied.
Booi's- one of the 1st in the area to offer "catch and release" fishing at an outpost.
Get your barbs pinched; all of Joyce Lake's Northerns are released, and only conservation limits for walleyes can be taken home.
You'll be pinching yourself.....for........Purely, Joyce Lake is a sportsperson's dream come true.
Special Services & Items We Provide For You at the Joyce Lake Outpost
The following applies for those of you booked at the outpost. (Not on Trout Lake, but on Joyce Lake.)
FLY-IN NORTHERN PIKE FISHING
Are you looking for some thrilling pike action? Primed for some rousing fights? Get ready to experience pike fishing of a lifetime. Over the years we've had many guests catch countless big pike in the 20 to 32 lb. trophy size. Catch 6 to 12 pounders faster than you can get them off the hook. There are many spots here in Trout Lake where large trophy pike call home. Here's where to get them; spring, summer and fall.
In the spring you'll find the monsters in mouths of creeks and in the shallow sandy bays bordered by vegetation such as reeds or marsh. Don't forget your polaroid shades so you can sight-fish for these shallow water pike. Cast in front of them with a jig and a Slug-Go, 4 inch spoon or a large crank bait. Watching that 30 pounder attack your lure is a wild way to get your big one.
In the summer, the northern will be deeper away from the heat. Key areas are cabbage beds and points. Some will suspend off small islands and weed covered humps. The hotter the day, the deeper the fish will be out in the weeds. Cast or troll using big spoons, crank baits or spinners along the ridges. This time of year the northerns are ready for battle, slamming your lure with a force. Lots of 20 lb.+ Northerns are fought and released during these summer months of July and August.
As the weather cools down and the fall season hits us, the pike move out of the deeper water. They're back on the reefs and the weedbeds and are bigger and better from a summer of feeding. The chilly northern nights invigorate them; they are on a feeding frenzy getting their fill before freeze-up draws near. Try trolling with a big crankbait, or casting with a red and white Dardevle. Vary the speed of your retrieve and occasionally pump your lure. Fall pike fishing is furious; you'll have an exhilarating hair raising time fighting these northern gators.
FLY-IN WALLEYE FISHING
You will capture walleyes of immense size during the spring, summer and fall. The walleyes in this gin-clear lake feed on an abundant insect forage base. They gorge on crayfish, leeches, shiners, small perch and ciscoes too. With such an abundance and diversity of food, Trout Lake's walleyes are large and healthy fish with many in the trophy class.
In the spring, you'll catch 50 or more per day averaging up to 3 pounds each. Catch them in the back bays, shallow bays and mouths of creeks.
In the summer they move to deeper water, sunken reefs and points with drop offs. Now's the time when they average over 4 pounds each, with schools in the 6 to 10 pound size. Summer walleye fishing on Trout Lake is incredible. The walleyes average bigger and more trophies in the 13 pound size are caught in July and August.
Fish for fall walleyes in the sunken reefs and deep drop offs. You'll find them. They're on a feeding spree now, getting ready for the lean times of winter. Take advantage of it and catch dozens per day in the 2 to 3 pound size. Catch trophies averaging 10 to 12 pounds.
NFL FOOTBALL STAR GARY ANDERSON FISHES AT BOOI'S
"My father-in-law, Howard Dahlheimer, has been going to Booi's for 25 years. Knowing how much we like to fish, this past spring he invited my two boys Austin (14) and Doug (12) and myself to join their annual trip. I am a passionate fly fisherman and I have been privileged to fish at many lodges around the world. Booi's is a truly special place. The hospitality and warm atmosphere provided by Jim and Tracy and all the staff made us feel like we had been coming for 25 years. The cabins, the boats, and the island atmosphere were fantastic! Should I mention the fishing? Austin caught a 20 lb. Pike on our last day and I overheard him telling several strangers at the lodge that evening of his proud accomplishment!
Doug's favorites memory was how the big walleye he was fighting was attacked by a giant pike and we almost netted both fish! Several days Austin and Doug caught more than 50 walleye each. I really enjoyed the variety of methods available at Trout Lake to catch pike, walleye and lake trout. I loved the freedom of each quest having their own boat for the entire week. A pet peeve of mine is having some guide tell me we will leave the dock at 8am and be back at 4:30pm. What's wrong with a little early morning fishing or perhaps a little after dinner evening fishing? There is much more to a really memorable trip than just catching lots of big fish (I've only learnt this recently myself!) I'll never forget my boys running around the island in the evenings, playing "cops and robbers!" Booi's is truly a place for everyone - serious anglers, couples, and families with kids. Our experience at Booi's was so incredible that my boys suggested we put our own group together of some of their buddies and their Dads. I say thanks to Howard and his group for inviting us and I look forward to sharing Booi's with our new group. We plan on making Booi's our annual family fishing tradition. I happen to believe that there are very few things more special in life than a Dad taking his son(s) on a fishing trip."
