Spring Trophy Fishing On Burntwood Lake

It is only March but you already have your upcoming May trip planned and all the accommodations have been made in anticipation of fruitful fishing on the great Burntwood Lake in Manitoba.

Burntwood Lake boasts an amazing 1000 miles of rocky shoreline; weed beds, hidden reefs and is a superb lake for the fisherman who wants to try their hand at angling a huge Northern Pike or a catching a challenging Walleye.

Why May Is A Great Month For Spring FishingSpring Trophy Fishing On Burntwood Lake

May is by far the most optimal month to target and catch Northern Pike in the northern United States and southern Canada. After recuperating from spawning, the Northern Pike prowl the shallows for Panfish and Baitfish. With little weed growth accumulated, the Northern Pike don’t have all that many spots built for ambushing and they haven’t seen anything resembling a lure in at least six months. In conclusion, spring fishing for pike couldn’t get much better.

What About Walleye?

The Walleye are more likely to be found in the shallows come spring time. In the day, the male Walleyes might run into 3 to 4-feet deep of water, but in the cooler evening they are right back into 1 to 3-feet of water. This means you won’t have to fish more than a couple of feet from the shore and definitely not out in the middle of the open lake.

Anglers, who prefer first class accommodations, and fishing for Northern Pike and Walleye can do no better than Burntwood Lake Lodge. At Burntwood Lake, we have the best Walleye fishing and it is second to none on the Trophy Northern Pike.
