Monday I'm takin my little lady for a little two day fishing getaway. Any suggestions on a good lake within a few hours of Duluth. We plan on staying at a little dive motel for a few bucks or puttin up a tent. Any help with some hungry fish and a place to stay would great. Thanks!

DuluthMedic,

I can't tell you where to fish on this lake but if you need lake to choose from let me start out by suggesting Winnie. You should be able to find a place to stay between Deer River and Winnie itself.

I'm sure others may have a little more info. Hope you have good time on your trip.

Take care,

Tom (BD110)

Hey thanks alot. I fished Winnie in the winter for the first last year, saw some really big eyes threw the spear hole. Maybe we will go there. Thanks!

If you want to pitch a tent I'd recommend Kabetogama. Island campsites all over and the fishing should be improving and moving toward a strong fall bite. Lots hiking trails. If you want to stay on shore Harmony Beach Resort on the east end has a nice campground. The owners are nice people and very helpful with the fishing information. There are several other resorts in the area as well

Bring your tent along and go inland (North) of the Cascade River. Fourmile, Wilson, Whitefish, Section 18, Toohey, Harriet all have eyes and most camping. Theres a few trout lakes in the area too.

If your up for camping check out Savannah Portage State Park near McGregor. There are a couple of lakes in the park. We caught largemouth and pike in one of the them (Shumway?) and there are trout in another (Loon?). I believe the lakes are electric motors only.

I just did the exact thing. Stayed at the Rambler Inn in I-Falls and fished Rainy Lake. Beautiful lake and a lot of nice fish. I didnt catch a bunch but I watched Fishmeister and his guys put on a clinic. If ya want more info e-mail me.

I agree with Surface Tension.

Hit the Sawbill trail.

Lots of nice lakes with few people.

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.
