Anyone going to Trout over Labor Day?

6 posts in this topic

Anyone going to be in Trout Lake over Labor Day weekend? I'll be heading up for just 1 night on Sunday to Monday. I usually only fish Trout in the Spring, so Labor Day will be the latest I've ever been in there. When I booked the permit, it said there are 14 overnight permits allowed, and 14 still available......actually 13 now, cause I got one. smile.gif Just wondering if my Spring and summer spots will still be the spots of choice for Labor Day. Thanks!

Maybe I'll be up there too.

Look for this boat.

Will do. Hopefully I'll see you up there. I too will be in a red Lund, with 25 HP Yamaha 4-stroke. But I don't have the bow mount frown.gif. I'll be in a resort boat that I'm taking from my parents resort with resort stickers on it.

Question: Are there any special regs on dogs in the BWCA? When I go into Canada fishing in the Spring I have to bring rabies papers, but I've never brought my dog into the BWCA before, so not sure. I plan on stopping by the Ranger station next week sometime, but if anyone knows, you could save me a stop after work. Thanks!

Hey sled. It looks like you have the 25 HP Yam 4 stroke. Have you ever back trolled with it? Just wondering if the 4 strokes do actually go slow enough to troll descently with. I have two options for motors to take to Trout. Most of our boats at my parents resort have the 25 HP Yamaha four strokes, but one of the boats has a 25 HP Suzuki 2 stroke. The Suzuki is much faster than the Yamaha, but there's no way I could troll with it. So I would need to bring the transom mount Minnekota with an extra battery for trolling. Or, I can take the Yamaha and leave the trolling motor and extra battery at home. I've taken the Yamaha's for rides around the lake, but have never gone fishing with them so I have no idea how they are for back trolling.

It trolls too fast. And I have a lund 16.5 rebel (lockers, 3 seats, livewell blah blah, blah) so its about 3 times as heavy as an empty boat and I still cant get it to troll slow enough for lindy rigs. The only time I troll with the 25horse is when Im running cranks. Bring the MinnKota.

      Well never made it to Monticello but did make it to the rum 2 smallies one 17inch and one 14 inch One on float and fly black and blue jig other on a white berkley gulp jerk shad.   And you can target walleyes and smallies every winter with a long rod you just need to know where to go

      Hi all new to the forum, only have 2 days left for fishing the elusive eyes.  Any input on depths and lakes to go on in the Detroit Lakes area would be great

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps
