Minor Bay Fishing

Minor Bay Lodge The Lodge is located in a sheltered bay in the southwest corner of Wollaston Lake, right in the heart of Monster Pike Country. The lake’s south end is all about structure—marshy spawning bays, peninsulas, sand and rock bars, plus a huge number of weed beds. This is ideal habitat for northern pike to spawn, feed and grow to incredible size. Their prime location means No long boat rides! Great pike fishing is within fifteen minutes of the Lodge. In case of bad weather, there are many sheltered bays, channels and points close to the Lodge that are home to trophy pike. To minimize fishing pressure, the main lodge keeps their guest capacity at only twenty guests per trip.
Catch-and-release policy. All fish must be released, other than small fish kept for shore lunch. All grayling must be released.

Evening Fishing

If you want to fish in the evening, you are not charged for the use of boats, motors or gas. Due to the nature of the lake, it is a lodge policy that a guide must accompany the guests on any evening fishing excursion. Guides do this on a voluntary basis, as evening fishing is after their regular working hours. A tip of $40.00 to $50.00 per boat is customary.
