Fishing Adventures on Nungesser Lake

While there are 70,000 freshwater lakes in Northwestern Ontario, not all of them are the same and some offer more to anglers than others. Nungesser Lake, part of the Gull Rock chain of lakes, is one of those special bodies of water. At almost 30,000 acres and with a darker colour to the water, the fishing is literally off the charts at all times of the year. Catch an endless number of walleye, with a good chance at a trophy-sized fish along with a really big northern pike - lots of them. If you have never fished Nungesser Lake then you should. A trip with Geary's Angler Kingdom will satisfy any angler's desire for a truly Canadian fishing experience.
