Gunflint Trail Lakers

13 posts in this topic

This weekend I had the chance to get out on the ice and chase some lakers. Fish were aggressive and I caught fish anywhere from 18-40ft of water. The bait of choice was a chubby darter, they wanted nothing to do with live bait. All in all I good weekend, hope everyone else did well also!

Yocal_local...shoot me an email and I may be able to point you in the right direction. I headed up the trail again this weekend and had a fairly good outing. Sunday proved to be the better day with five fish on the ice. Fish were caught on a tip up with a pink and white hook with a shiner or a do jigger and piece of a shiner. The fish came anywhere from 35 to 55 ft of water.

Here are a few fish from sunday

Gorgeous color on that first fish, Walterman. I've had some very good luck this year on the Do Jigger myself. Sunday sure was a pretty day to be out on the ice.

Fishing for me wasn't that great, but fishing for my clients was excellent. I'll take that any day of the week. grin.gifgrin.gif

      I can speak for Ludlows and have nothing but high praise. Mark, Sally, Paul and Kelly run a top notch resort. June to early September they are usually about Max capacity each week. Outside of the peak season weekend use is still relativity high. They don't have a restaurant on site but will provide(cooked in house) high end meals for some large cooperate groups that come in. They aren't struggling and the service won't be beat anywhere on Vermillion.

      Sounds like a fair deal Boney, booze for bait works for me. i am starting to prep the boat and gear, too. cant wait.

      hope you all are paying close attention to the meandered water issue at bay here in SD. Sounds like some landowners in Mn are taking notes.    Its a difficult subject and I and can see both sides from private and public perspectives.

      Now that the ice is gone, what do people fish for before the walleye opener? Any reports?
