Wolf Lake?

5 posts in this topic

Has anyone ever ice fished Wolf Lake SE of Wolf Bay? Can you access this with a snowmobile in the winter? According to the DNR the lake contains decent number of small walleyes? I am just looking for a good day trip adventure next time up to Vermilion. Thanks, Mike

Wolf is full of small walleyes. There is a trail that goes from the south shore of Wolf Bay and goes into the Northwest corner of Wolf.

WORDS OF CAUTION:

These small lakes can be full of nasty slush in years like this. And typically, there isn't that much traffic so if you get yourself into a pickle, you may be there for awhile. If I was going in there, I would proceed with extreme caution or go in there hot and don't stop until you can verify conditions. Just got back from helping someone get a machine out of a slush hole.

Thanks shamrock, I'll heed your warning on the slush conditions. I found myself in some nasty slush while on Susan heading in from Black Lake. I quite possible ruined my wife's sense of adventure on that ride.

It took me many years to get somewhat comfortable with slush. I know my daughter went out to take a picture of a sun set and got into it, she made it out but scared the bejeses out of her. Newer machines and a few studs make it pretty manageable but if you get stuck, it ain't fun.

Lazy Mike if you make it out there please let us know how it went. Is the access easy to locate from vermilion? I have always wanted to get out there but never had the time but I am going to try to get out there befor the end of the season.

      That would be unfortunate if it was shut down. But I wouldn't blame the property owners if they did, as I wouldn't like my property getting trashed either. My oldest daughter, and son, both caught their first rainbow trout out of there 2 years ago, and it's always a must stop on our way to Grand Marais. How is it possible that the river itself is private property?

      For anyone that's interested, the docks were not in on the east side of Island as of Saturday. It was nice to see the lake a little higher than it normally is this time of year but the water was still way too cold for much crappie action - at least where I was fishing. Lots of logs and debris floating around in the middle of the lake so pay attention out there!

      thanks everyone for the input, we have decided to drive and take our own kayaks for the convenience. plus we can carry more tackle.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com
