      Minnesota Fishing Report Clubs - ONLY 20 FREE MEMBERSHIPS Per Area - Join Today - FREE   03/08/2018

      Fishing Minnesota has added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. Initially we are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20 members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want see detailed fishing reports/tips  around your area and will share your detailed fishing report as soon as you join, then Join Now! Some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

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......
