When Troy Mansfield takes guests walleye fishing they can expect a great day on the water. Troy has been guiding walleye more than half of his life and to say he's got it figured out is an understatement. Who else can burn through 25 DOZEN minnows by 3:30 in the afternoon? That's an incredible day right there!
But sometimes even Troy's surprised by his guests accomplishments... take 5 year old Connor Roers for example. While on a family fishing trip at Winoga Lodge, young Connor caught what many would consider a walleye of a lifetime! 30.25 inches - congratulations Connor!
Summer is officially here in Sioux Lookout. After a somewhat cool and wet spring, the warm weather has arrived and fishing has been hot! Our guests and guides have been catching lots of walleye, with 200 fish days topping the list! Trips to Big Vermillion have been putting great numbers of Lake Trout in the boat, too. And the muskie bite is on! It's a great sign when the first muskie of the season is a monster 50-incher!
Winoga Lodge is Northwestern Ontario's premier outfitter for fishing and hunting.
