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.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
