Grand Portage area

4 posts in this topic

I will be heading to Grand Portage for the weekend for Rendezvous Days and I was wondering if there are any shore fishing options for that area with spinning gear. I've heard the Pigeon river can be good. What a bout any thing that runs into the lake?

Leechbait, I can help you out on this one. First of all the Pigeon River can be good for Walleye during August. Try fishing off shore in the landing area with a leech and slip bobber set down about 4'. Cast out as far as possible to the middle of the current and let it drift down.

The other thing to try would be hiking into Taylor lake (off the Trout Lake Road) and casting from shore with small spoons for trout. You will have to go in the early morning or evening to have the best chance there.

You will have to check about fishing permits for non-band members. There may be reciprocity with band-members from other MN Chippewa tribes.

      I bet you got a great deal on it this time of year.  I absolutely love my 8" ION as it has a nice enough size hole when using ice house, also, very light weight when drilling multiple holes.  Love the reverse!  Really makes the experience more fun and not so tired as i was using strike master before and i needed to sit down after drilling 4 holes.  When and if you get to use it.  let us know what you think.   Congrats!   Bob
