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!

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.

      So a few questions about Winni as I have never been there before. Do you find that the fishing tapers off as winter progresses, for example if heading up there for Perch and Walleye would you chose January, February or March, or doesn't it seem to matter much?  Also what is the night vs daytime bite like? Trying to plan a few days up there with the wife and trying to decide when to go and if a sleeper is worthwhile or just do a daytime shack.   Any thoughts are appreciated.     Thank you

      The Helix 5 gives you the option to view different screens. The view button option shows separate flasher screen, sonar , gps , others. Screen views will run side by side in different combinations, but flasher screen only works by itself. Great little unit. I use mine for gps . Ram mount on handlebar
