The Ultimate Fishing Adventure: Reindeer Lake Expedition
Welcome to the ultimate fishing experience! We'll take you on an extraordinary journey with Lund Boats and Lindner's Angling Edge team as they embark on an epic fishing adventure to Reindeer Lake in Northern Saskatchewan. Join Jeremy Smith, Jeff Simpson, Mike Hehner, Ryan DeChaine, and their friends as they drive over 1300 miles with their Lund boats to explore this classic fishing destination.
Setting the Scene
After two nights on the road and over 1300 miles later, the team finally arrives at Lawrence Bay Lodge on Reindeer Lake. This remote destination, typically accessed by fly-in, promises an adventure of a lifetime. With three Lund boats ready to tackle the rarely-fished lake, the excitement is palpable. The crew includes hardcore anglers from Wired2Fish and Angling Edge, making this trip a fishing enthusiast's dream.
The Dream Fishing Trip
Jeremy Smith, Mike Hehner, and their buddies had a dream – driving their boats to a fly-in destination to target giant Pike and, if they were lucky, catch Lake Trout during the spawn. Lawrence Bay Lodge, a full-service fly-in destination, became their base for this adventure. They brought their Lund 1875 Pro Guide and Lund 2075 Pro V Bass boats, fully loaded with tackle, rods, reels, and electronics, ready for any fishing challenge. The idea of driving to a remote fly-in lodge was born a few years back, and now, it's become a reality.
Casting for Lake Trout
Arriving in September, the team's first mission was to cast for Lake Trout. Although it was early in the season, the lake's water temperature indicated that the trout might be moving up to the shallows. Casting along rocky shorelines, they quickly found the trout staging for spawn. It was an exhilarating experience, with these beautiful fish putting up a fight.
What's a fishing expedition without a shore lunch? With freshly caught trout, the crew enjoyed a delicious meal right on the shoreline. What better way to enjoy the fruits of your labor?
One of the unique aspects of this trip was tackle crafting. Jeremy, Mike, and the team collaborated with Do-It Molds to create custom jigs, blade baits, and more. They poured their own jigs, adding a personal touch to their fishing arsenal. It was a satisfying and rewarding experience.
Versatile Lund Boats
The Lund boats played a crucial role in the expedition's success. The Lund 1875 Pro Guide proved versatile for both casting and trolling. Its ample storage space allowed them to carry an extensive selection of tackle, ensuring they were prepared for any fishing situation. Meanwhile, the Lund 2075 Pro V Bass provided the agility needed for casting along the shorelines.
Reindeer Lake did not disappoint when it came to Pike fishing. The crew had a blast catching these powerful predators, with fish after fish providing heart-pounding action. The variety of fishing experiences on the lake, from Lake Trout to Pike, made this trip truly exceptional.
If you're seeking the ultimate fishing adventure, consider Reindeer Lake as your next destination. With Lund boats and a passion for fishing, you can make your dream trip a reality.
So, pack your tackle box, fuel up your Lund boat, and get ready for an adventure of a lifetime on the pristine waters of Reindeer Lake!
