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.

Yes. Live minnows are allowed on all lake trout lakes.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man met me on the lake today and I showed him I am a skilled angler! lol we had a great fish fry! My old man only added one crappie and 5 gills to the bunch

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
