Greenwood or Loon Lakes' Lakers?

9 posts in this topic

Has anyone tried fishing either of these lakes yet this winter...or any area lakes (except gunflint)? How are the ice conditions now?

Fished Greenwood last Friday & Saturday. Only 6 fish landed with 4 more lost, one being a big boy that straightened my hook. The bite started late AM then petered out till last hour before dark. Plain hooks with shiners and a Northland airplane jig were the hitters.

Don't think you'll get many replies on Loon lake.

You can try calling the Lodge for an ice report.

KO, how was the ice on Greenwood?

Mimic Shiner and I fished Loon two weeks ago and got three lakers for 5 guys in an afternoon. One of which was about 4 pounds. Fairly easy walking out there and nice solid ice. There was some patchy slush in areas.

Yeah, I just threw loon lake in for s**t's & giggles. I was mostly interested in greenwood reports and ice conditions. Any tullibees coming out of there?

Just looking for something that may change my mind about going to burntside/snowbank in march. Me and my family LOVE grand marais alot! Went to gunflint last march and landed a 9 pounder...good times! I picked burntside for this year because of affordability and potential fast action. But I've always been known to change my plans at the last minute. ;\)

Good ice. Snow hard and wind swept for the most part so a 4-wheeler can traverse it.

No vehicle traffic (trucks or suv's) though I suppose? I don't have a wheeler or atv. No big deal though, there's plenty of structure well within walking distance.

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)

      Well if you are looking in the Minneapolis lake nokomis has a fishing pier   North metro Crooked lake in Andover has a pier. There is a nice park as well and all the sunfish you want to catch no big ones though.
