Fishing at Manotak Lodge
For Walleye, Northern Pike, Smallmouth Bass, Whitefish, Perch and Muskie. Perrault Lake has over 50 miles of shoreline and is directly connected to Cedar Lake that has an additional 67 miles of shoreline. Both lakes provide excellent fishing. We provide contour maps of both Perrault Lake and Cedar Lake that illustrate water depths, underwater structure and other helpful information. Steve will advise you of the current hot spots and will assist you with your choice of lures and rigging.
For those wanting more adventure, we offer day trips to our remote lake locations; we have an outstanding Muskie only lake where the average day is to catch 3 to 5 Muskies and have 10-15 follows. If you prefer we can also arrange for a daily fly-out to a remote wilderness lake where the Walleye, Northern Pike, and Smallmouth Bass fishing is some of the best in the world.
The fishing season begins in mid May. When the ice melts, the shallows are the warmest and the fishing action is fast and furious for all species. Most fish seek cooler water in mid July; you will have to adjust down for them. As fall approaches in late August, the surface water starts to cool down. Bass and Walleye concentrate and when you find them, it will provide some of the best fishing ever. Remember too that late August and September are trophy Muskie time. Fall is also when the Whitefish move into shallow water.
