When we personally fish the lake thru the summer, many times just a yellow jig with a twinyellow tail caught just as many as a jig with bait or power baits. Our guests have commented many times on how aggressive the walleye are in Bennett Lake. The Northern's will bite on just about anything and we caught them easily along weed patches near shallow bays. They also like to hang around a shallow shelf that drops off to deeper water. As an add on feature we also have guides available if you require for $100 US/ day. Prior to your arrival at Bennett Lake, arrangements should be made if this service is required.
Our possession limits for Walleye are 4 Walleye with none over 20", possession limit for Northern Pike are 4 with none over 30". Your are certainly welcome to take home your limit. Another feature of the catch and release policy is you can have a replica fish mounted for almost the same price as a real mount. All you need to do is measure the length and girth of the fish, take a picture and a taxidermist will make the replica. With the monetary exchange rate it is also beneficial to get your fish mounted in Canada. We can recommend a taxidermist when you are at Bennett Lake.
Whitefish, goldeye and perch are also commonly caught. Fish until your tired of catching them! This clear northern lake water provides for the best action in fishing.
