Fishing Sioux Lookout in Ontario


The quality of sport fishing in Northwest Ontario is legendary. Due to our modern conservation practices, fishing in the Sioux Lookout region will only improve as time goes on. The old cliche goes "Fishing has never been better", but in our region, it is a reality. The plain truth is that the fish are larger and there are more of them now than there were 50 years ago. That's what separates us from the rest of the pack, and that's what you are looking for on your fishing vacation.

Our modern cottages are electrically heated cabins with full bathrooms and private bedrooms. Granted, we don't have men in tuxedos and towels over their arms catering to your every whim, but you do get excellent service from our experienced, friendly staff, and personal attention from the resort owners. You won't be lost in the shuffle at Moosehorn Lodge.

We have new 18 foot fishing boats, they are wide, with full floors, pedestal chairs, bait wells, fish wells and plenty of storage bins. They come equipped with 50 HP Yamaha 4-stroke electric starting motors with tilt and trim. Also available are our new Harbercraft 21 ft. bowriders available with a fishing guide. These are equipped with new 150 Yamaha 4-stroke motors and 8 hp, four stroke Yamaha kickers. The motors are replaced every second year to insure their reliability. We want you to have a fun, comfortable, trouble-free day fishing on the lake. One other thing... because we enjoy on-the-water access to 6 connected lakes (Minnitaki, Abram, Botsford Pelican, Lost and Lac Seul) you can put your gear in your boat when you arrive and remove it when you depart at the end of your stay... you don't have to keep moving your equipment for each fishing day. We will even clean out the boat every day after you are done fishing.

Moosehorn Lodge has been around since 1949 and is owned and operated by two Sioux Lookout residents, Carter and Linda Rice. We know how to do it right. Each of our fishing guides has a minimum of 10 years experience on our lakes. All our people are local residents, not just "summer staff". They know what needs to be done, to ensure you of a great fishing vacation and they will do it right, with a smile.

Honesty in dealing with our clients is one of many reasons why 80% of our bookings are repeat customers and referrals. We encourage you to ask for references.

Full American Plan and Housekeeping Packages with no hidden extras. You know what your trip is going to cost before you leave home. Our Deluxe American Plan package includes all the features you would normally expect, as well as minnows, conservation fishing license and gasoline.

November 2006

Winter has arrived and the fish get a break…for now! Wow what a season we’ve had!

If you were here, you would see a vast white landscape, as winter slowly sets in on the area. Despite the fact that we had a record low rainfall this past season, the fishing was still unbelievable. A little bit more effort getting through some channels and a few new rocks learned, nothing has stopped us from producing amazing numbers of trophy fish. Lack of rain however, did mean less time in your raingear and more dry shore lunches. May, June and July were very warm, and August, September and October saw cooler temperatures. The use of a guide was needed a little more so, for safe travel this year. We still did our normal routine, day and evening, recording more master angler muskies than anyone, anywhere. There are still a few hardcore fishermen up here trolling, and having good luck. A special thank you goes out to all of our guests who keep coming, catching and making Moosehorn memories.

Our lodge had a ton of trophies in all species, collected again this year. There were a total of One hundred and sixty four master angler fish caught at Moosehorn Lodge in the 2006 season. Of that total, the breakdown is as follows; 24 Walleyes (over 27.5”), 31 Northern Pikes (over 40”), 54 Muskies (over 44”), 49 Smallmouth Bass (over 19”), and 6 Lake Trout (over 34”). Listed below are the top three of each species master anglers;

Walleye (27 ½” and over)
- Joey Siers of Mt. Prospect,IL and Micheal Lowenborg of San Antonio, TX tied @ 28.5
- Greg Gager of Lacrosse, WI 28.25”
- Jerry Nyback of Salem, MO, Don Dewaay of W. Des Moines, IA, Greg Marino of Moosehorn Lodge and Aldo Colalillo of Moon Twp, PA all tied with 28”

Smallmouth Bass (19" and over) (new for 2006)
- Don Dewaay of W. Des Moines, IA, Roger V. Nelson of Wyoming, MN, and Larry Anderson of Princeton, MN tied @ 20
- Bryan Thompson of Moosehorn Lodge and Larry Anderson of Princeton, MN, tied @ 19.75”
- Third place tie goes 8 ways all with 19.5” smallmouth bass – Bea Nyback of Salem, Mo, Mike Hanchette of Mt. Morris, NY, Chris Kiehm of Birmingham, MI, Bob Ogiba Sr. of Mosinee, WI, Cecil Simard of Moosehorn Lodge, Bryan Thompson of Moosehorn Lodge, John Pearce of Brazil, IN, and Greg Marino of Moosehorn Lodge

Lake Trout (34" and over)
- Timothy Chapel of Caledonia, WI 38”
- Linda Rice and Greg Marino tied with 37”
- Bryon Cole of Moosehorn Lodge 36.5”

Muskellunge (44" and over)
- Joe Zimbal of West bend, WI 55”
- Mike Baratta of O’Falcon, MO 54”
- Linda Rice (Muskie Mamma) of Moosehorn Lodge 53.5”
(Lots of other fish over 50”- see photo gallery!)

Northern Pike (40" and over)
- Colin Gosse of Moosehorn Lodge 45”
- Greg Marino of Moosehorn Lodge 44”
- Chris Edwards of Sioux Lookout, ON 43.5”

The complete list is posted on our forum section of this website.

And the winner is...

We have a catch and release reward program. For each fish that qualifies based on the below chart and is released back into the water your name can be entered into the draw. Two names are drawn; the first is for a perma mount of the winning ticket or $300 CDN towards your next trip to MHL. The second drawn ticket wins their trip free (equal to what the guest had spent the previous year). Don’t forget to fill out those ballots, located in the front office, for each fish. Remember, these sizes are different than master angler sizes.

Free Trip (for one) equal to previous year’s expenditure winner; Heather Nyen

Thank you to all of you who support our catch and release program.

Loss of a dear friend and guest

All of the staff at Moosehorn will be missing our dear friend John Petersen, who has recently passed on, leaving us with fond memories of all of the good times we had with him. John’s place at Moosehorn Lodge will never be replaced in our hearts, and we are sure that he is spending all of his days fishing now. We have posted a commemorative page for John up at the lodge. Our newest 21’ bowrider has been named after John, with us labeling the boat, “THE JUDGE”. Colin is usually found guiding this boat, as John was his dear friend.

Did you notice?

We have heard great compliments from you, as to all of the various improvements that we have made to Moosehorn Lodge. There is gravel on the driveway to keep down the dust. The landscaping around the cabins also helped clean up the camp yard. There has been new grass planted in from of the main lodge. The old concrete was yanked out for easier boat launching. Another 21’ has been added to our fleet (4 altogether). Carter and Greg have completed renovating his houseboat to line up a future cruise for your pleasure. The boat looks even better now. Be sure to check out other improvements this year. Please leave us with any thoughts or suggestions that you may have, to better our facility for you.

Some of the overwhelming feedback that we have received from you:

“My compliments to you and your staff at the Moosehorn, you have a great facility with professionals at every levell. I had a great stay!” - Stan Strub

“On behalf of Ryan Bents and myself (Reush party over Labor Day weekend), we would like to thank everyone at Moosehorn lodge for the generous hospitality, great service fantastic food, and most of all, for all of our guide services (Greg Marino). It was another successful jammed packed weekend full of fun, fishing and relaxation. We will continue to be big fans of Moosehorn Lodge and spread the word of referral whenever we get the chance.” - Mark A. Ruesch

“I just wanted to say thanks again for the great time that you had showed me. It was an awesome time, and I still can’t believe that I landed the freakin’ muskie. I couldn’t have done it without Greg Marino’s awesome netting ability. Hopefully we will see you all again next summer. I wish you the best of luck.” – Glen Hunt

“Greg Rice, I wanted to send you a personal thank you for last week. My father and I had a wonderful time and are already starting to plan next year’s trip. As usual, everything was perfect. Once again, thanks for the great time!” – Tracy Connell

Colin, thanks again for a wonderful trip this year. We all had a great time and enjoyed all of the fishing with you a Bryon. I may even plan a second trip in July for some killer musky action. I just have to see what dates that you have open.” – Scott Boeselager

“Colin, thank for the pictures that you had sent us of the fish that Bob and I had caught with you this year. The pictures turned out excellent and our families had really enjoyed them. We wanted to extend our appreciation in the excellent job that you did in guiding us. It’s always fun to catch a lot of fish, and we enjoy going with someone who truly enjoys being out on the water, as you obviously do. Can you keep us in mind for the same time frame next year? For the first time since we have been coming to Canada, we would like to return to the same place. You, Carter, Greg and the rest of the staff did an excellent job!” – Michael W. Salsieder

“A special thank you for the way our fishing trip has been a special event for us every year. Your hospitality is second to none. You guys spoil us rotten and we love it.” – Jim, Dick and Kent Donovan

“We had a great time and we will return!” – Russ Swerdlyk

“Thanks again for a wonderful time with our family at Moosehorn. We returned this year with our son and grandson, they were really impressed. From the equipment, the menu, the prepared meals and those to die for shore lunches. Our walleye fishing was beyond our wildest expectations. Just so the others know, we were there in the middle of August and it was still extremely successful fishing!” – Eileen Gaura

“We had a great time at the lodge. The fishing was awesome and so was our guide, Johnny Kidd. You have to go out with him when you are there, especially if you have kids. He KNOWS how to entertain them. Our kids had a blast and so did I . Carter and Linda are very accommodating.” – Chuck Ross

“Thank you Carter! We came there this past week (5-22-26-06), for my Dad’s 75 th birthday. To say that we had a good time would be an understatement. The weather was in the 80’s, no bugs and the fishing was in one word FANTASTIC. Our guide, Colin was great, your boats and motors were excellent, and the scenery was breathtaking. Greg and Nicole treated us like kings and Greg’s food was just wonderful. We enjoyed having coffee with all of you before breakfast, and Carter you are just a hoot to talk to. Thank you for making a family memory for us. We will be back!” – Steve Hanchette and Family

“Bea and I appreciate the fine service, good meals and exceptional fishing. You guys have done an excellent job refurbishing Moosehorn, including the new boats and the dock. We have been coming up there for years and will continue to come up until our health won’t let us.” - Jerry Nyback

We’ve added another Harbourcraft 21’ bowrider!

That’s right, due to the overwhelming popularity of our Habourcraft bowriders last year, we’ve have added another one to our fleet. These boats are not only the sharpest looking boat on the water up here, but have an incredibly smooth ride as well. Why not ride in style, while having the best fishing day of your life? Guide tested, these boats have proven to be able to endure any type of weather, and keep you well protected from the elements as well.

Musky Hunting - 54 master muskies this year!

Talk about putting people on monster fish. Our guest Joe Zimbal landed the biggest musky this year, a whopping 55”, congratulations Joe! We have also had guests catch a 54”, a 51.5”, and a 51” on Lac Seul. Our guest Andrew Whitney caught the Big Vermillion Lake record at 52.5” There were a lot of fish caught by guests at camp over 44”. Almost every trip out had their chances. Our guides raked up some monsters as well. These fish can all be seen by logging on to the photo gallery on our website.

A lot of these Musky were caught in the evening. These guys would start out a little later in the day and stay out till dark or fish the full day and night. A guide is definitely recommended if you are interested in evening fishing on Lac Seul. Ask us about evening guided fishing trips.

Muskie Mamma keeps on producing trophies!

Our co-owner and musky fishing personality has been back up to her old tricks (57”er), well not quite that big, but she’s still been hauling in the monsters. This year alone she has a whopping 9 master muskies (over 44’). These sizes include a monster 53.5”, a 49”, two 46”ers, a 45.5”, a 45”, two 44.5”ers, and a 44” musky. She has finally got into the big Pike as well, with four masters in that category (over 40”). Linda has landed two 43”ers, and two 40”ers. She also has a 37” Lake Trout to her credit this year. We feel that she’s probably had the best season by any woman in the fishing world. Way to go Linda! Let’s see how many more she can yank out through the ice this year!

From the Ministry

There will be new Fishing Regulations in place for our region for the year 2007. These are not yet posted and we will keep all of you informed as of any new changes.

As of January 1 st 2005, Big Vermillion Lake in our area has a “no bait” regulation in place. This means no bait live or dead for use for any species on this lake only. Please refer to the “lure list” on our website for the best artificial lake trout, smallmouth bass and musky baits to bring or buy here. The rest of the area’s regulations can be seen in a section soon posted on our website.

Crossing the Border (and the ongoing “potato question”)

Here it is, the reason that potatoes can no longer cross the border (either direction), is because of a potato “mop-top virus” (harmful to potatoes only) that is trying to be kept under control in Canada and the U.S. The border patrol can never seem to tell anyone why. Here are some other basics on crossing; Visitors may bring the following into Canada: 200 cigarettes (= 1 carton), 50 cigars, and 14 ounces of tobacco; 1.1 liters or 40 imperial ounces (= 1 bottle) of liquor or wine, or 24 x 355 - milliliter (12-ounce) bottles or cans of beer for personal consumption; gifts up to the value of C$60 per gift.  To import tobacco products a person must be 18 years of age or over, and to import alcoholic beverages the importer must have reached the legal age established by authorities of the province.  You can bring in a small amount of food for your own consumption. The same restrictions will apply to returning Canadian residents. Be sure to check with Canadian borders before crossing for any new regulations.
