September Trip to Gunflint Trail, Lakers question

1 post in this topic

I have booked a cabin about midway on the Gunflint Trail for late September, (before the end of Lake Trout Season). I have never fished lake trout, I am not looking for all your secrets, just some tackle suggestions and help getting pointed in the right direction.

I have been trying to chase the lakers during the winter, but have never been able to get the trip done. Open water, now is my chance.

Hopefully the grouse will cooperate in the morning and afternoon, and if I could hook a Laker between time, happy me!

Thanks

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!
