Fishing On Gunisao Lake
Gunisao Lake offers the Best Trophy Walleye Fishing in the World. One look at the Manitoba Master Angler Record Book will convince you of that. Year after year, Gunisao kicks out more 28-inch and larger Walleyes than any other lake in the country, which is why it's known as the premier Walleye destination in Canada. In addition to the World's Best Trophy Walleye Fishing, don't be surprised if you tie into many lunker Northern Pike as well. Pike ranging from 36 to over 42 inches are common. Catch and release is the name of the game*. All trophy size fish are measured and then released to ensure the big ones will be biting for many years to come.
While fishing, you will be impressed with our professional
guides and large, comfortable Lund boats. Each 18 foot
Alaskan Lund has a flat bottom for easy movement within
the boat, padded swivel seats, an electronic fish finder,
and a 40hp Yamaha motor. There is one guide
for every two guests.
Catch, photo, release.
For over 15 years, Budd’s has implemented a catch-and-release program for Trophy-size fish. Releasing them allows the fish to grow bigger and bigger, year after year. This ensures great Trophy fishing for future generations.
