Looking for some pointers on Lakers

3 posts in this topic

Hey my fellow fisher dudes!!!! First time posting here I will be staying at the Gunflint Lodge this weekend from Thursday the 28th to Monday and I want to catch my first laker really really bad We came up for the first time a couple of years back and had no bait and I was jigging a spoon and all of a sudden my vexi looked like a Christmas tree with one red bulb on it and all of a sudden it just hammered my spoon and let go and ever since this I'm out for revenge on that fish

So this year I want to come prepared for some real fishing and catch a few trout

So if I could get some pointers for what weights ,types,colors of lures are best this time of year on Gunflint and where to start looking for them depths,structure,and so on and also what is the best bet for tip up rigs this time of year and what # line do you guys suggest we use I was thinking 8lb is this to light???

Thanks for your help in advance and who knows maybe I will see you there.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
