Gunflint Lake area?

2 posts in this topic

I am heading up to Gunflint Lake for a week with the family at the end of Sept. Now I have never fished that area before so any info I could get would be appreciated. I'll be towing a 16 ft fishing boat along with a 25 hp motor. Is there a motor size restriction on Gunflint Lake? What is the fishing like that time of year and what types of fish might we run into. I have never fished Lake trout before so any info on where I might find some would be great.

Basically any information would help us a lot.

Thanks in advance.

Howdy Beeber. I can't give ya any hints on Gunflint Lake, as I have never fished it, but I know for sure it doesn't have a motor restriction on the lake, as it is not in the bwcaw. I have stayed on Gunflint at Gunflint Pines campground and driven up to Saganaga for day trips on the lake before. Takes about 15 minutes to drive there. One suggestion I would give you though if you would rather take a chance on catching a trophy walleye of a lifetime then trying for trout is to hire Gunflint Pines guide Rodger Campbell right away in your trip to fish Sag. Then you could use your own boat the rest of the trip to fish the lake. Its about 275 for the day, but well worth it. Bring your gps with, as you'll need it. Let me know if you would like more info on this. Just a thought. Have a great trip, as it is wonderfull country that way. Junky......

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!

      Not bad! Was the ice soft all they way through?
