Canadian Fishing Philosophy of Errington's Wilderness Island Northern Ontario Canada

Canadian Walleye & Northern Pike Fishing Wilderness Vacations in Northern Ontario Canada by Float Plane or Train


Fishing Philosophy
of Errington's Wilderness Island

Our Fishing Philosophy is that Fishing is a sport, a recreation, and a responsibility. Eating fish, catching lots of fish, and catching the "Big One!!!" are all part of great fishing vacations, but so is insuring that future fishing is as good or better for future generations of anglers as we enjoy now.

Trophy Walleye Fishing Ontario CanadaWe encourage our guests to release all larger, spawning size fish, Walleye over 20 inches, Northern Pike over 30 inches, and Perch over 12 inches. These fish are generally all females, prime spawners, and at least 10 years old, while really large fish can be 30 years old or more.

Shore Lunch Fish Fry Ontario CanadaThe best eating size fish: Walleye 15-18 inches, Perch 9-12 inches and Northern Pike 22-28 inches, we encourage our guests to enjoy eating while they are here when the fish are at their very best freshness and taste. Shore lunches where fish and food are cooked over an open fire are especially delicious.

As for bringing fish home, if our guests are planning to eat the fish within 2-4 weeks after their vacation here, while the fish taste and quality is still very good (although not as good as fresh caught fish), we think it is a good idea. If our guests do not plan to eat the fish fairly soon after their vacation, we think it is a better idea to release the fish back into the lake for their next vacation.

Trophy Walleye Replica MountIf a guest wants a trophy mount, trophy fish replicas are as good or better than real mounts and last indefinitely. The difficulty with real fish mounts is that the skin of the fish needs to be tanned or preserved for mounting which takes out the color. The material trophy fish replicas are made of is designed to be painted, the skin and scales of real fish are designed to protect the fish. How good a fish taxidermist is depends entirely on how good an artist they are with paint, because every single scale, ridge, spine and fin on the fish has to be painted whether the fish is a real, or a replica.

The skin of the real fish mount also dries and shrinks with age and can deteriorate to the point of needing to be discarded in as little as 5-10 years. Replica Fish Mounts last indefinitely.Canada Tropy Walleye Fishing

All you need for a replica fish mount is length and girth measurements and a good picture. The large prime spawning female fish, which could be 30 years old or more, is then released back into Lake Wabatongushi to continue contributing to great future fishing.

Wishing You Great Fishing
