Brian and Tina run a great fishing camp.

On a more serious note, I agree! We are 9 days away from another week at Alwaki, can't wait.

T-bone, On  a side note,  we did help Brian unload your spirits

Did Tbone ship ahead his Mojo? Do I need to be concerned with witchcraft or sorcery being involved in fishing with him this year? Hmm unloading spirits  ???   Whats a box of Tbone spirits weigh and whats it cost to ship?  ;D Please tell me it wasn't a box of fixin's to make dolls that can be stuck with sharp objects. I'm bringing a necklace of garlic just in case!

Last year was my first year on Kipawa at Alwaki Lodge, I went twice, once in the end of july and the second time the first week in September. Because the Walleye were already out deeper in July, I found the fish bite to be just as good in September and we ended up fishing the same locations and similar depths as we did in July. I'm not sure why, but the only exception was that the morning bites were very slow, to the point when I go back this year in Sept, I will be sleeping in and maybe do some mid morning trolling for walleye and trout.

On a side note, I would suggest maybe using the September trip as more laid back Fishing trip as the weather in September was spectacular, Lodge owner Brian said September is his favorite time to be at Kipawa. If I could have bottled that week I could sell it and be a Ka-billionaire! ;D

Congrats on the 2nd trip @PETERBFLY! Wish I could do it. Are you going back to TML?

I was up there once in September and the Walleye were in 24-32FOW. We pretty much vertical jigged. Didn't do bad size wise but numbers were not as good. We also weren't as knowledgeable of the lake back then.

Good luck and look forward to hearing the trip report.

So we are finally pulling the trigger and heading back in September for a second trip.  We have always come the last week of June, so this will be a new experience for us.  Wondering what to expect?  I heard the Walleye are deeper and Lake Trout shallow.  Pike and Bass are in the same locations. 
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks all

Yeah...I'll likely troll a little more this year myself. Crawler harness doesn't seem viable with the structure I like to fish, but a HnT for sure. And I don't keep count...not a real count anyway. Let's call it a tie Hodge and I'll buy you a beer.  ;D

But I know in my heart of hearts that you want to troll for another're a bait ****y.  :o

Tie it is. Iím definitely not there for numbers, just pokin fun. Canít wait to crack some cold ones with you and the boys! On the bait front, you know the truth.... I ainít no bait ****y  8)

I'm stealing that plan and using it on Ogascanan in a little less than 4 weeks.

Roll with it! It might need a little tweaking, but I think itís a winner!

. On the 4th pass I hooked into a keeper on a Hot-n-Tot, blue back with a chrome bottom. We all switched over to H-&-T, in blue & chrome and every pass thereafter one of us hooked up with several doubles. Not saying that this is the magic to boating fish trolling, but it sure worked for us that night. My main point is, that if you don't get action on whatever your dragging, CHANGE UP until you find what they want. Also, don't be afraid to vary your speed, some days they want it slow, other days, fast. Above all, enjoy your week on Kipawa, and good hunting.   
I have a pretty good selection of H&Tís so I will bring them along. Thanks for the tips !
