    Yellowknife Restaurants

Airline costs to and from small arctic outposts are generally more expensive than a plane ticket from Canada to South Africa. Why you ask? Monopolies.

    by kgbheat Updated Oct 25, 2006

    The Pike and Lake Trout fishing is unbelievable. 30 lbs are not out of the question, 20 lbs is easily attainable. It's also not out of the question to catch 50-100 fish in one day, per person.

    Equipment: 20 lb test med to heavy spinning rod, rain coat, layered clothing. Bring big spoons like DD 5 of Diamonds, being several. also 5 inch steel leaders.
