Brule Lake

3 posts in this topic

Headed up the Gunflint to Brule Lake. I know it is good for walleye, but haven't been there in 4-5 years. Anyone been fishing it and have any pointers for walleye or lake trout. Thanks in advance. Andy

Andy,

Got a chuckle out of your post, I'm also heading to Brule on Friday with a friend named Andy. Maybe we'll see you up there. Andy knows the spots, he just needs someone to paddle the front of the canoe. Have to work the next day, so just fishing the evening, long drive, but you take what you can get. Good Luck!

I was camping on Brule in mid-June with my dad and my daughter and did well with the walleye and bass. We started out using floating raps and switched to leeches under a slip bobber. Didn't have any luck finding any northerns but we made do with those walleye for dinner. I don't think you'll find any lakers in Brule. You could go a couple portages north to Winchell and find some, though. Good luck and have fun.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW
