Lubey, no experience there from me, but there are two excellent resources for you.

One is the Sportsman's Connection book of maps for the Minnesota Arrowhead. Tons of maps with all the latest DNR survey info so you can see what's in all the lakes and look at maps to figure out how to fish them. The books are in most of the bait/tackle stores in the Midwest, or you can go online and Google it.

The other is the DNR Lake Finder Web site here. Of course, it doesn't do you any good until you know the name of a lake, but the map book will get you there, and I'm sure someone will chime in with a few lake names.

Good luck up there! grin.gif

From Lutsen you'll want to head over to the gunflint trail to find some prime laker waters. Gunflint is probably the most popular of the lakes...good numbers and trophy potential. Other lakes worth trying would be loon, east bearskin, flour. Saganaga too of course, but it's in the BWCA, so I'm not exactly sure about the access rules. I would do a resort search and find some fishing reports from them.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!
