BIG Trout, that’s our thing. So if you’re looking for trophy sized lake trout, this is it.
Fly-out on a charter float plane over 200 miles North of Yellowknife to Point Lake, one of the largest rivers on the Coppermine River system. Typically ice-free by the second week in July, Point Lake offers the ideal environment to fish for trophy lake trout. And it’s no wonder that MonsterQuest sent wildlife biologist Dick Sternberg to investigate the giant lake trout that eluded angler Conrad Pilon. After struggling to reel in a fish he had on the line for hours the fish eventually got away when his equipment couldn’t take the tension and snapped. This is one of the reasons a minimum of 25lb test line is recommended.
Aside from the legendary story and others like it there have been many that have been successfully caught and released, the current record is 58lbs.
Enjoy the camaraderie of small groups and personalized service.
