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 think stoney point is good for wheelers only.  Tried horseshoe bay and followed the pressure ridge and could not find a place to cross.  Went back to Whipholt which had a good landing and went toward stoney point  Had to cross a small pressure ridge by the Island.  Once crossed, all the way to stoney  with no problem  fishing was SLOW, tried the deepest part of the Paris Trench all the way to 24ft. thinking of one last trip this weekend

         Thanks for the update, I completely understand why you choose to post this here instead of a different thread. I haven't been on the ice in WEEKS now, might be retiring the ice gear for the season and waiting for open water pannie season...Or the big lake.

      Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

      Know a guy that is out there today.  Unfortunately he is not fishing as he got hung up a breaker this morning.     The main sheet sounds like it is fairing well.  They have been accessing the lake from Whipholt and driving across.  Long drive.  Not sure about other accesses.
