Calling for Assistance From our Followers

Aerial Resort


We have been experiencing technical problems with our internet service provider ‘XPORNET’due to equipment failure that we rent from them. According to all their customer care representatives they do not have any parts ‘anywhere in Canada’ to be able to get us up and running again, ugh!

This has had a negative impact on our business as we are 55 miles (90 km) off the grid and we’ve had to drive out to the local town of Upsala to check our emails, ads, facebook posts, etc.   It takes us a minimum of six hours to do this.

We are now on day six without any internet for our business and cannot supply this service to our guests this past week. I’m asking for all followers on SOCIAL NETWORK (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, WordPress, etc) to please leave a comment on your favorite forum with regards to how important ‘INTERNET’ is to you to be able to communicate with us. Your views are welcome and could have a huge impact to expediate our service and  with the overall outcome between us and XPORNET.  We are on a business package and pay much more for service compared to a ‘home package’.

CaptureWhat is a realistic downtime nowadays to be without internet service?  Do you communicate mostly by phone, email, texting, messaging, etc?  Let us know you views…….it will be a BIG help to our cause!



Thank you,

All of us at Wawang Lake Resort

Fishing Walleye in the Weeds Pt 2 – with Video

walleye weedsNow that you know why weeds attract walleye, whether it’s cabbage, milfoil, or your local variety of pondweed, how do you catch them?

Three Tips for How to Catch Walleye in Weeds

Obviously fishing walleye in the weeds presents its own set of problems. Some people get annoyed by continually stopping to remove vegetation from their bait. If that’s you, this might not be your best technique for how to catch walleye. But if you’re willing to put up with this little inconvenience in exchange for a nice batch of walleye, then read on.

1.  Fish walleye vertically. This might mean sneaking up on an opening in an otherwise congested weedbed to drop a jig into the hole as vertically as possible. In fact, that’s the way I catch more walleye from weeds than any other technique. Drop the jig to the bottom, bounce it up and down a few times, and then move on to the next spot and drop the jig again. Usually, if the spot holds a fish, it will hit the jig in the first 15 seconds. They tend to hit it on the drop, so keep a tight line as you drop the jig down.

2.  Target the cruisers. Walleye in weed beds tend to be loosely schooled and cruising through the area, looking for a pod of bait fish. When you find one fish, work the area over well – others are sure to be there. This is where you can often taken a limit, or enough for a shore lunch, in an area the size of the hood of a pickup.

reefrunner3.  Aim for ambushers. Another great spot to catch walleye is along the deep edges of weedlines on a steep drop-off. The steeper the drop, the more distinct the weedline will be. You can search the area with a deep-diving crank bait, then spin around and drop your jig down when you contact a fish. In this case, walleye tend to be ambush feeding rather than cruising. They find a good-looking spot and back themselves into the edge, facing out. When something that looks like an easy meal comes by, they slide out and grab it. Again, catch one and a half-dozen more walleye are likely to be there.

Reelin’ ’em in

Once you catch a walleye in thick weeds, you might have a challenge getting it out – especially if it’s a big one. Using a stiff fishing rod with ljig mouthots of backbone and a fast tip has its advantages. Spool it with 10- to 20-pound super line so it won’t stretch. (Care must be taken when using this technique since damage to the walleye or other fish species is certain.)  Crank your drag down pretty tight and when you hook a fish, quickly wrestle it to the top. The key is to lift it as straight up as possible to avoid getting wrapped around the stems of weeds.

The best time of the year to catch walleye in the weeds is late June and through July and August. If you are looking for a meal of tasty walleye fillets, go snooping around a bed of cabbage this summer.
