5 posts in this topic

I was hoping to be able to meet a few of you guys this weekend up there that would be pretty cool. If you go to lodge and ask for the Latzke cabin you could hunt me down that way or otherwise we will have a Clam Yukon on the lake.

Are you able to drive a truck out on Gunflint or is the snow too deep cause as far as I know they dont plow roads out there.

No plowed roads. I always bring a sled and rely on that to get around so I've never driven a truck on the ice up there. Most years theres a North South pressure ridge in the same area that pretty much cuts the lake in two. Thats another reason I don't drive the truck.

Sounds like sleds to me. I will not be there but take a sled with just in case. Well good luck to you all and have fun.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.
