Incredible Walleye Fishing Trip at Canadian Fly in Camp: Jason Mitchell Outdoor Television travels to Budd’s Gunisao Lake Lodge which is a fly in lake in northern Manitoba. Perhaps some of the very best walleye fishing we have seen with incredible numbers of fish caught each day. The number of trophy size walleyes over 28 inches caught on this lake is remarkable. This lake is one of Manitoba’s very best lakes for producing Master Angler class walleye.


Budd’s Gunisao Lake Lodge is reached by flying out of Winnipeg. The flight leaves early in the morning and lasts about an hour and a half. Once you arrive and have breakfast at the lodge, you are fishing shortly thereafter. Comfortable cabins, great food and appetizers with bar. Very friendly staff and great guides.


We typically easily caught over a hundred walleye a day with many walleye over 24 inches. This lake routinely produces walleye over 30 inches. Most of the fish were caught vertically jigging main lake structure in mid July. We enjoyed a fantastic shore lunch each day and fishing after supper is also an option. Easily one of Canada’s premier fly in fishing destinations for anglers specifically targeting walleyes with trophy fish potential.

Tungsten Jig

Incredible Walleye Fishing Trip

Tungsten Jig (Black)

Northland Fishing Tackle’s Tungsten Jig gives anglers a step up on traditional round ball lead jigs. Molded from Tungsten which is 30% more dense than lead, this jig has a faster fall rate and less drag in the water. This allows anglers to use a lighter tungsten jig than typically used when fishing a comparable sized lead jig. In addition, the hardness of tungsten increases sensitivity and allows anglers to feel exactly what’s on the bottom. It features a premium hook and dual bait keepers that lock on soft plastics and live bait. The Tungsten Jig comes in 3 size ⅛, ¼ and ⅜ and 9 colors. They are available 2 per card and 4 or 5 per card bulk packs. See all available colors here.

  • Made from eco friendly heavy weight tungsten that is 30% denser than traditional lead jigs
  • Tungsten’s hardness allows anglers better feel for bottom contact and lite bites
  • Premium Mustad Ultra Point hook and dual hook keepers lock on soft plastic and live bait
  • Red “T” eyes easily distinguish tungsten
